The White Dress Society Retreat

The White Dress Society Retreat

June 11th – 12th 

An intimate gathering of bridal store owners to learn, share and be inspired. 


The White Dress Society Retreat is a rare opportunity for bridal store owners to gather in a uniquely intimate setting.  Limited to 20, this two day retreat allows like-minded bridal store owners to come together to learn, share ideas, be inspired, and get rejuvenated about their businesses. Whether you are a new store owner looking for guidance and inspiration, or a seasoned veteran looking to sharpen your business skills, this retreat is your opportunity for growth and improvement.  While there are many wedding industry conferences, The White Dress Society Retreat is the first of its kind, geared specifically toward bridal store owners.

The 2 days of intense learning and  networking will be lead by industry leader Beth Chapman at The White Dress by the shore in historic Clinton, Connecticut.  Not only has Chapman owned The White Dress by the shore for over 13 years, she is the founder of The White Dress Society and the creator of The Series : an educational video series for bridal store owners.  She has carefully curated a panel of innovative industry experts for The White Dress Society Retreat to cover compelling and relevant topics intended to educate and  inspire.
