Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an appointment to shop?
We do operate by appointment for our brides and bridal parties. This way we can ensure that you have a fitting room, stylist, and private viewing room reserved for you and your guests upon arrival! We are happy to accommodate walk-ins when available, and you're welcome to pop in and shop our gifts and accessories anytime.
Can I bring guests with me?
Absolutely! This is such a special time and we encourage brides to bring along their loved ones. While we are an intimate boutique, we can accommodate a large party with some advanced notice. We will ask how many guests will be in your party upon booking your appointment, so as to ensure we have an appropriate sized room reserved for you!
What's your price range?
Our bridal gowns range between $1,500 and $6,000. We also have a Sample rack of gowns that can be purchased off-the-rack for a fabulous discount.
How far in advance do I need to shop for a gown?
We recommend shopping at least 6 months prior to your wedding. Our collection of gowns are made-to-order, meaning once you 'say yes to the dress', the designer will make a brand new gown in the size and color you require. This process can take 4 - 6 months for delivery, and we recommend allowing 4 - 6 weeks for alterations.
That said, we are always willing and able to help brides with a shorter timeline. We encourage brides to shop our collection of sample gowns; beautiful store samples that are often heavily discounted. Rush deliveries are also available depending on the style.
Bridesmaid dresses take 8 - 12 weeks for delivery.
Where are you located?
Our boutique is located in charming Historic Newburgh, right on the border of Indiana and Kentucky (seriously, we can see Kentucky from our window;). Just a 10 minute drive from Evansville, 20 minute drive from Henderson, and 45 minute drive from Owensboro.
We love our little historic neighborhood filled with locally owned boutiques and restaurants, and encourage our brides who are traveling from afar to stay and enjoy the day in Historic Newburgh. For more details about our town or for shopping/dining recommendations while you're here, just ask us!
Is there a fee for booking an appointment?
There is no fee or cost affiliated with booking a styling appointment at House of White. Our styling expertise is free of charge.
Can you recommend a fabulous _______________ (photographer, venue, florist, makeup artist, etc...)
Absolutely! We are proud to have great relationships with the most innovative, talented local wedding professionals in the business and are happy to sing their praises to our brides and pass along their contact information. If you are looking for vendor recommendations, by all means contact us!
