Wedding Gown Silhouettes

Finding the perfect wedding dress begins with finding the right shape for your body. There are five basic gown shapes, including trumpet, mermaid, sheath, a-line, and ball gown. Once you've narrowed down to one silhouette, deciding on a combination of materials and details is easy! At The Bustle, our bridal stylists will help you find the right fit for your wedding day. Click here to make an appointment today!


   

Trumpet This is a fitted style that begins flaring out just below the hips. It shows off your curves enough while still giving you enough walking space to dance the night away!




     


Mermaid This style is great for brides who want something a little more dramatic to show off their curves! It's more fitted than a trumpet fit, and begins flaring out at the knee or lower.



       

Sheath This is slim fitting style perfect for brides who want a sleek and effortless look! It hugs your body head to toe, and is a great silhouette for wanting to elongate your figure.





       

A-line This is universally flattering on every figure! It's fitted at the bodice to show of the smallest part of your waist, and flares out from there. It looks especially great on brides who want to conceal their fuller hips, or for brides with a sporty figure who want to create the illusion of curves.



         

Ball Gown  This shape is fitted at the bodice, with a dramatic full skirt. If you love this look, go for it! Where else besides your wedding can you dress like a princess? :)

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!

Gown Page Photo

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
