Veil Me

Do you want to wear a veil? 

Veils have been worn for centuries all across the world and until this day are commonly seen as a bridal tradition. 

Brides always ask us if they should wear a veil or not. We always recommend trying veils with your favorite wedding gowns to see if you love it. There are so many different variations of veils that are guaranteed to perfect your look.

Every veil designer adds their own touch to their veils, but traditionally the most common lengths are: 

  • Elbow
  • Fingertip
  • Waltz
  • Chapel
  • Cathedral

Veils come in all different cuts and designs (lace, bling, silk, horsehair, etc.) and of course if you're wanting to combine your favorite looks, there are always options to customize a veil.

Blushers are a very popular topic of discussion. Traditionally, the bride has a blusher attached to a veil that goes over her face until she is "unveiled" at the ceremony. Wearing a blusher is all about the brides preference, and not required. Some brides like the effect of extra volume that the double layer creates without placing the blusher over the face. 

Wanting to try on veils? Book your accessory appointment today! We are having a Toni Federici Trunk Show June 8th-17th. Our shop has over 100 veils, and if you can't find your perfect one, Toni Federici can customize your perfect veil!

Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle AKA The Duchess Sussex

All of social media has been buzzing about England's newest Duchess and her wedding look! 

Meghan surprised everyone with her custom made gown designed by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller.

Her gown was elegant and minimalistic, accessorized with a stunning cathedral veil and a tiara once belonging to Queen Mary. 

Meghan's wedding gown is a 3 quarter sleeve with impeccable tailoring. 

After years of lace ruling the market, Meghan has shifted the wedding scene into more a simple, tailored look! 



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. 

 The Bustle carries a wide variety of styles with brand new orders beginning at $1,500 or at $799 for off-the-rack dresses.

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 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 (;

1 Dress, 2 Looks

For all of you brides who just can't decide on one dress because you're IN LOVE with two looks... we've got the answer!

#1: For lace lovers

One, find the dress of your dreams! Step two, get a lace BOLERO! If your dream dress is strapless go ahead and simply wear a bolero over or underneath your dress!

Boleros come in all different patterns, sizes, and colors! You can wear the bolero for the entire wedding or take it off at the reception. Because the bolero is removable, the possibilities are endless!

Need an example? Here's our beautiful bride Kristyn in her Stella York gown! Images by True Photography.

#2: For a princess look

One, find the dress of your dreams! Step two, wear an OVER-SKIRT on top of your fitted gown! It is the perfect way to have the sexy fitted look and the perfect classic princess cut all in one day!

Over-skirts come in all different styles, cuts, colors & even different volumes! Some have trains while others don't! Just like boleros, the over-skirts are removable leaving you (The Bride) with plenty of options!

Brides often wear the over-skirt for the ceremony and then remove the skirt to have a lighter, fitted look for the reception!
