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

The ultimate bridal experience only at The Bustle!

We know there are some brides who may be tempted to shop online or in department stores, but what they don't realize is that there's so much more than to just finding a gown they love. Wedding dress shopping is a special occassion that creates memories at a bridal boutique. Here at The Bustle, we give each and every one of our brides the ultimate gown shopping experience where they're treated like a queen! (: Yes, online shopping may be quick and convenient, but The Bustle caters to all brides, and gives a once in a life time experience that will be unforgettable. Our brides are automatically greeted even before they walk inside the shop! Each bride, along with their friends and family are happily greeted as they enter our boutique and are treated to champagne and delicious cakes. Not only do brides have the ability to browse through beautiful gowns during their private appointment, but they have the freedom to ask our bridal consultants any questions that may arise. Online shopping doesn't compare or even come close to physically seeing a gown or accessory you love. You're able to feel fabrics, see an entire look for your wedding day, and not have to worry about something turning out differently than how you saw it online. When brides are researching wedding gowns, they need to be more aware and careful of the source. They might find an awesome deal with a dress priced very low, but they might not be able to verify the gown's authenticity. Our bridal consultants are there to help guide brides through the entire gown process from styling to alterations, and of course to find their dream wedding gown! Our brides don't have to stress about finding a place to do alterations because we offer them in house, and coordinate all scheduling dates to make sure they're on track for their wedding date. Let us be apart of your special day, because The Bustle will accomodate anything you may need, and to make your wedding vision a reality<3
