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!

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 (;
