ALSW Operations Enhancements for COVID-19

First and foremost, we hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy. We are overjoyed that A Little Something White can re-open on May 20th. In order to ensure the health and safety of our customers + employees as well as to comply with the state rules, we are implementing the following at A Little Something White until further notice.

~New Store Operations~

1. If you or your guest can answer “yes” to any of the following, we are asking that you refrain from entering the store. Are you sick, have a fever (temperature above 100 degrees), or have had one in the past 14 days? Have you been exposed to anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days? Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined? We will happily reschedule you for a time when you or your guest are healthy.

2. We are asking our stylists to connect with you over Zoom/Facetime or the phone, at a minimum. This will allow us to learn about your wedding and get to know you so that we can pre-select some gowns for you (don’t worry, we will still show you around the store!) as well as gather some important information that we typically have you fill out by-hand.

3. Masks must be worn in the store at all times. If you or your guest is unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, just let us know and we would be happy to schedule you an after-hours appointment.

4. We will be maintaining a maximum occupancy of 10 people. This means every customer is invited to bring 1 guest with them to their appointment. Want to bring more than 1 person? No problem! We have reserved certain appointment slots after hours for those wanting to bring multiple guests with them.

5. Please call the store after you park your car. We are asking that you remain in your car until we have properly sanitized the area you will be working in following the previous appointment. We will call you and let you know when you can enter.

6. We will ask you to wash your hands immediately upon entering the store. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front entrance as well as in ever bridal suite.

7. Bathrooms and elevators will be sanitized after every use.

8. Employees will be washing their hands in between appointmets

9. Bridal suites will be fully sanitized in between appointments. Any items touched during an appointment are being set aside and will be sanitized immediately following the appointment.

10. Bridal gowns and hangers will be steamed and sanitized in between try-ons.

11. Curbside pickup and drop-off as well as virtual appointments are available for anyone who is not yet comfortable coming into the store.

Keeping everyone safe and healthy is of the utmost important to us. If you have any questions about or procedures, please don’t hesitate to email me at ashley@alittlesomethingwhite.com.

Message From our Owner about COVID-19 & ALSW Operations

Updated March 23rd, 12:00pm

First and foremost, we hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy.

To our brides, even during the best of times, wedding planning can be challenging. We would imagine that right now, things have gotten even more complicated for you. To our high school graduates and parents, please know that we, too, are sad for all of the things your child is missing out on right now during this important phase of their life. All of us at A Little Something White are here to assist you in any way we can during this emotional time.

The health and safety of our staff and customers as well as the general population is critically important to us. As you know, Connecticut passed legislation on Friday, March 23rd requiring non-essential business to close until April 22nd. A Little Something White is considered non-essential, and as such we will be closed until that date. Please see a video below from owner Ashley regarding store operations during this time.

To the extent that I can be of any assistance to you during this time, please don’t hesitate to email me at ashley@alittlesomethingwhite.com.

Wishing you and your families health and resilience during this challenging time.

~Important Highlights~

1. All appointments between 3/23 and 4/22 will be rescheduled for a later date. Someone from the ALSW team will contact you in the next 24-48 hours.

2. Our managers (Kim and Angelica) will continue to work behind our locked doors and the store will remain operational during this time. This means we will continue to receive packages, check in items, and place orders during this period. This is allowed under the Governor’s executive order.

3. Curbside pickup and drop-off are available by appointment during this time.

2019 at a Glance

This was the year of ball gowns, straps + statement bows! We saw a swing towards “the bigger the better” in the form of full ball gowns + long trains. While strapless gowns continue to set our brides’ hearts aflutter, we saw an increase in brides looking for gowns with straps. And don’t forget the statement pieces, the winner would have to be the detachable bows…what a great way to get two looks in one!

The one thing that hasn’t changed? Our brides are the BEST!!!! A huge thank you to all of our 2019 brides for continually reminding us why we have the best “job” in the world!

1) THE BIGGER THE BETTER

This year it was go big or go home, we have seen some of longest trains + biggest skirts we have ever seen. Talk about the wow factor!

2) STRAPS

Give me the straps! For many years, strapless dominated. These days, brides want to make sure they look different than their friends who said “I Do” before them. That means more brides are requesting some sort of strap. From thin to thick, off the shoulder to detachable, straps were a hit this past year!

3) STATEMENT PIECES

We styled many brides this year who wanted a way of standing out! Statement pieces became a fan-favorite in the form of bows, capes, and unique fabrics.

Interested in any of these looks? Request an Appointment!

Amsale Trunk Show: November 21st-24th

Request Your Appointment!

WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
We curate our everyday gown selection to reflect our brides’ unique yet timeless styles. Naturally, there are gowns from our designers that we don’t carry in store on a daily basis, because we only purchase a subset of each designer’s collection. The beauty of a Trunk Show is that our designers send us their new collection along with best sellers from past seasons. During the event our brides have an even larger selection of gowns to purchase from. As an added bonus, sometimes the designer or a member of the design team are present for the Trunk Show to work one on one with you. Trunk Shows make the shopping experience even that much more special and memorable! Request an appointment today!

“I believe that true style knows no place or time – more than an aesthetic, STYLE is a way of living.”

WHAT IS A VEIL TRUNK SHOW?

We curate our everyday veil selection to reflect our brides’ unique yet timeless styles. Naturally, there are veils from our designers that we don’t carry in store on a daily basis because we only purchase a subset of each designer’s collection. The beauty of a Trunk Show is that the designer sends us veils that we don’t normally have in-store, meaning a larger selection of veils to choose from, and you get 10% off your purchase! Make an appointment today!

MARRIAGE IS THE MOST ANCIENT, SACRED + TRADITIONAL OF RITUALS – AND THE BRIDAL VEIL IS THE MOST POWERFULLY EMOTIONAL PIECE OF THE CEREMONIAL ENSEMBLE. THE VEIL IS THE WINDOW TO THE GOWN, AND REPRESENTS THE GLAMOUR, INTIMACY, AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE DAY. THERE IS SOMETHING TRULY MAGICAL ABOUT THE SIMPLE ART OF PUTTING ON A VEIL.”
