About US


It all started...

 ...with a little heart, soul and a fateful introduction. Anne and Carmen met as co-workers several years ago and immediately connected. These days? It's like we're family. We are not only passionate and spirited about each other, but we find importance in connecting with others and sharing our heart and passion with the world. 

Before this kismet adventure began, Carmen was designing custom wedding dresses and performing alterations out of her studio and Anne was working in event planning and exploring the ever evolving world of fashion & design. Through those experiences, we both saw a need in the Twin Cities for a wedding dress shop that provided unique, fashion-forward gowns as well as an intimate, low-stress experience. We wanted to create an environment where ALL brides would feel welcome and relaxed while searching for "the dress" and to inspire women to celebrate their own confidence and personal style.

And with that (and a little grit and good fortune), The White Room was born!

We have carefully curated our selection with up-and-coming designers that not only fit the aesthetic and vision of The White Room, but also really make their mark in the fashion world. These designers are unique and dedicated to tailoring, creating dresses that extend beyond the traditional.

We highly recommend making an appointment so we can give you our undivided attention to find "the dress," and offer in-house alterations, for a seamless experience. Feel like just exploring? Then drop by and check us out- we always love the extra company!

Expect lots of laughter, big hugs, good music and perhaps a little dancing. We cannot wait to meet you!
