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




The White Dress Society Retreat is an opportunity for bridal store owners to gather in a uniquely intimate setting. Limited to 50, this two day retreat allows like-minded store owners to come together for inspiration, networking and learning. Whether you are a new store owner looking for guidance, or a seasoned veteran looking to take your business to the next level, this retreat is your opportunity for growth and improvement. While there are many wedding industry conferences, The White Dress Society Retreat is the first one of its kind, geared specifically toward bridal store owners. 
The 2 day intense learning and networking will be lead by industry leader Beth Chapman in charming Nashville, Tennessee. Not only has Chapman owned her boutique, The White Dress by the shore for over 14 years, she is founder of The White Dress Society and creator of The Series 2.0: an educational video series for bridal store owners.  She has carefully curated a panel of innovative experts, both from inside and outside of the wedding world, to cover compelling and relevant topics intended to educate and inspire.
