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, 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!

Our Bride, Michelle!

Michelle was an absolute dream to work with on her customized Bustle gown with removable sleeved bolero! She looked simply stunning on her wedding day and we are so happy that she shared photos! Michelle also had this to say about her Bustle Bride experience: "Loved my gown purchased there! Made some customizations to the Taylor dress for the perfect look after about 9 bridal appointments at other salons." We were so thrilled that she was as over the moon about her gown as we are and we want to say Congratulations to the happy couple! Michelle Taylor

Our Bride, Heather!

Heather looked absolutely gorgeous on her wedding day in her Stella York gown! We love the lace A-line gown with scalloped trim and a sparkly belt to set off the look. Her ivory dress looked perfect with the turquoise bridesmaid dresses. Congratulations to the newlyweds! image1

New Versus Sample Gowns

There's a home for every wedding dress whether it's brand new or a sample. We have brides at The Bustle saying yes to their dream gown and purchasing off-the-rack all the time! The decision is all based on personal preference. While there are pros for ordering a brand new dress, there are also many perks for getting a sample. We've outlined a few advantages to consider when shopping and trying on gowns. (:sample photos Pros for Ordering a New Dress
  • You aren't limited to styles when trying on gowns since there are new designs every season!
  • Since you're placing an order on a brand new dress, it will be in pristine condition
  • Measurements are taken to order a gown closest to your size. There's no need to worry about altering a gown two sizes too big
  • Some designers give options to customize parts of the dress when ordering. It'd be awesome to make the dress to match your personal style (:
Pros for Purchasing a Sample Gown
  • Getting a gown off-the-rack means massive savings! You'll be paying a less for a similar gown at a much higher price
  • You have a gown to begin alterations right away. This is important if you have a short timeline with a wedding coming up within the next few months
  • Aside from cleaning, alterations (hem and bustle) will be about the same as purchasing a new dress
  • Nobody will know you didn't purchase a brand new dress unless you tell them (;
    The Bustle carries a large variety of sample gowns that may be the perfect wedding dress for you! Click the picture below to view the collection of samples that are currently available for our future brides-to-be! samplesale    

Our Bride, Leann!

The lovely Leann and her new husband, Kyle got married at the Temecula Creek Inn! Leann wore an ivory lace fitted gown by Stella York and she looked absolutely stunning! The soft colors chosen for the decor and florals complimented the romantic simplicity of Leann's gown and we are just smitten with her bridal look! Congrats to the happy couple. leann1 leann3 leann4
