Your wedding day is something to be remembered

At The White Orchid, our goal is to make every moment leading up to it memorable, too. Finding a gown that fits your style, budget, and wedding plans is our passion. We don't stop with the bride, either. Our hospitality and customer service extends to the whole bridal party. We carry mother's and evening wear, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, and offer tuxedo rentals. By outfitting the whole party at our store, you have the peace of mind of our staff managing it all until the big day. 

Make an appointment or stop on in and start planning your best day ever.

 
 
 
 

 

About Us

The White Orchid opened in 1984, and has been managed by owner Barbara Patterson since 1995. 

Since the beginning, The White Orchid has provided beautiful, traditional gowns and custom seamstress services for our brides.

Today, the store has expanded to encompass bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers, prom and evening wear, accessories, and tuxedo rentals-making sure you're well dressed for any occasion.

Independently contracted seamstresses provide their professional services on site giving customers friendly, honest service in a convenient location.

I would like to thank your staff for the extraordinary service that I was accorded in my search of a gown for my boyfriend’s black tie event. From choosing what style would fit me best, to trying on countless gowns, down to alteration, you are hands down the best. I felt sexy, classy and elegant in the gown that I chose without getting ripped off price-wise. You are second to none.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an appointment to shop for a bridal gown?

To best accommodate all our clients, we ask that brides make an appointment either over the phone or through our online request form. However, brides will be paired with a consultant to the best of our ability should a walk in bride come in. Appointments will take first priority over walk ins.


Do I need an appointment to shop for a non bridal gown?

No, come on in! Our consultants will be happy to help you anytime during our store hours.


Can I bring food, drinks, or champagne to my appointment or fitting?

In order to take care of our stock and keep the store clean, we ask that guests do not bring outside food or alcoholic beverages for their appointments. Water, tea, and coffee are fine as long as they are in closed containers. If you do want snacks available, please schedule a private party, where refreshments will be provided by The White Orchid.


We love our seamstresses as much as you do! Due to the attention needed for alterations on wedding and evening gowns, our seamstresses will only work on dresses purchased from our store. For dresses purchased elsewhere, we recommend Anita Stitch in Brentwood.

Will your seamstresses alter dresses or clothes from other stores?
