Our Bride, Emily!

Emily and Kevin are married! We can't even stand how adorable these two lovebirds look on their big day.  Their smiles alone are enough to light up the whole room! Kevin looked so dapper in his blue suit, and Emily stole the show in her moscato and ivory colored tulle ballgown with a delicate lace bodice and encrusted crystal belt! We are totally in love with their whole look and how it represents their fun personalities! Congrats to the happy couple!

Our Bride, Heather!

Our stunning bride, Heather was sweet enough to send us a few pictures from her big day and we could not be more happy for her! Heather wore an organza ruched ivory gown by Stella York and a sparkly belt to top it off!  The photos definitely show how happy she was to be a bride and who can say no to an adorable first look photo where the groom is totally in awe of the woman before him?! Congratulations to the happy couple and may you have many many sweet years together in wedded bliss!

National Bridal Sample Sale Day!

The Bustle will be holding our Sample Sale next month on July 16, 2016 and we could not be more excited to show our brides the amazing gowns that will be available off the rack!  We have a few tips on how to find the perfect sample gown and a little insight as to how the sale works!
  • Gowns priced at $399, $599, and $799 + up | Discounted styles 30%-70% off retail value
  • No appointment necessary | First come, first served
  • Choose any 5 gowns to try on at a time!
  • Cash or Credit only
  • Open from 10-6 for walk-ins!
IMG_0912 Our One-Day Sample Sale will be a little bit different than our regular appointments, and that's the beauty of the sale.  This sale will not require you to make a bridal appointment as usual, but will work on a first-come, first-served basis in our upstairs boutique. The sample bridal gowns will be exceptionally discounted, so you have the chance to find something that's within (or below) your budget so that you can pocket the extra cash! Many of the sample gowns available are high-end designer gowns that are heavily marked down and are the last existing gown of that style so you know you won't find your friend wearing the same dress. FullSizeRender (3) We have a variety of sizes and styles available for you so that you can find your perfect fit and take the gown home with you that day! If the size isn't quite right- don't worry, we can always work some magic in alterations.  If you're a bride with a tight timeline or budget, this is the perfect opportunity to say yes to the dress of your dreams and not have to wait a single moment to take it home! We can't wait to meet all of our new Bustle Brides on July 16th and we hope you're as excited as we are!

Our Bride, Katie!

The Wedding Planning Secrets No One Tells you

Brides-to-be!  Don't let the wedding planning blues get you down!  We know that planning the biggest, most important day of your life can be a little daunting (no pressure, right?) but here's how to get your perfect day without all the stress. 75_Bride-Prep The number one secret that nobody tells you about planning your wedding is that it doesn't have to be one hundred percent perfect.  It's a day to celebrate the love between you and the person you've chosen to spend the rest of your life with. With so much pressure put on a bride to have a picture-perfect fairytale wedding, it's easy to see why it can kind of bum you out.  Our best advice is to be flexible! If it rains on your big day or your veil tears before you put it on- just let it roll off your back because if at the end of the day, you end up married you have succeeded! Olivia1 Our next tidbit to save your sanity is that your wedding doesn't need to go according to everyone else's plan.  We know that Mom really wants you to wear her dress because it was so important to her and that your aunties will have a fit if they don't get the traditional dry white cake at the end of the night.  But the important thing to remember is that your day should reflect who you and your fiance are as a couple- so if you want to hire a taco truck in lieu of a standard sit down meal, or have your dog as your flower girl, go right ahead.  Your aunties will understand that it's your day, and they might even have (gasp) fun!  If you want to do a backwards wedding where you party first then have the ceremony at the end of the night, or wear a colored gown and walk down the aisle to rock 'n roll, then You. Go. Girl. b3 Ultimately, what we want all of our amazing brides-to-be to know is that your wedding is a celebration.  Don't let other's opinions of what they think your wedding should be keep you from having a day that is unique to you.  If you're feeling pressured to have an over-the-top wedding to impress people, take a step back and make sure that's what is really important to you.  Your guests will have gone to dozens of weddings that look all the same so why not infuse a little of your personalities into your big day to keep them on their toes and make it a day that will be special to you!  

Our Bride, Katrina!

Katrina stunned in a ruched tulle and lace mermaid gown with customized removable straps by Stella York.  Her dramatic lace-trimmed cathedral length veil made quite the impact and we are just in love with the photos by True Photography.  The happy couple had a blast at their Westin Hotel reception in San Francisco and we hope the rest of their lives together are just as magical!
