Dress Timeline

So you've just said yes! Congratulations on your engagement! Now it's time to dive into wedding planning. Shopping for a gown is one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. The entire process of gown shopping is about 8 months, so it's never too early to begin the search for the perfect dress. :) We've broken down the timeline so you're prepared to find THE ONE!

Almost all gowns are made to order, so it takes 4-6 months for the dress to come in. If your wedding date falls within that 4-6 month time frame, don't worry! We'll walk you through all your options to see if any rush fees apply. There are different rush fees that will help speed up the production on your dress. The Bustle offers various rush options depending on the designer and the gown you fall in love with.

Remember, alterations are always needed to achieve the perfect fit. Gown sizing is determined by your current measurements. We always recommended to go with the largest measurement because wedding gowns are made to be taken in, or let out if needed. Alterations will begin 6-8 weeks before your wedding.

Let The Bustle help you find your dream dress! Our team of bridal consultants will be there to guide you through the entire process up to the day you say "I do!" Call 858-523-9254 or visit us online at www.thebustledelmar.com to schedule your private appointment. We can't wait to meet you xo

Our Bride, Dayna!

A big congratulations goes out today to our amazing bride, Dayna on her gorgeous wedding! Dayna wore not one but TWO amazing Stella York gowns and we think that both looks were absolute perfection! Her first look was an allover lace trumpet gown with an illusion neckline that complimented her long cathedral lace-trimmed veil beautifully. The reception look was a little more playful with a sparkly belt and gorgeous romatic flowy skirt and lace top! We love that Dayna did two looks on her wedding day and we think that she picked the perfect ones! Congrats to the happy couple! 12809889_10205600145272902_1890859143_o 939329_10205600147312953_462961370_o 12837708_10205600149673012_257134377_o 12837145_10205600153833116_159401103_o
