Between trips to the caterer and florist, the last thing a bride-to-be wants to navigate is an overwhelming dress shop. Yet so many bridal shops hang dress after dress, making gown shopping feel like a confusing maze through silk, lace, and gauze. Castle Rock’s Little White Dress is out to change that. The year-old store, run by Cate Malone, who left a career as a paralegal to pursue her love for all things bridal, has a sprawling floor space–each dress is visible as it hangs–and meeting spots (think plush red chairs and magazines) where mom and friends can huddle to offer opinions. Try on a narrowly cut Claire Pettibone gown, accented with custom-designed European lace; a sleek and modern Valentino dress; or one of the six other designers only Malone carries in Colorado. Or if you’re shopping on a budget, head upstairs, where Little White Dress sells discontinued styles for $1,000 or less. 611 N. Wilcox St., Castle Rock, 303-814-8972
