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.

Hair Styles Down The Aisle


These lovely hair accessories are the most common bridal hair accessory, other than the veil! Hair combs are the perfect touch of bling and a great way to spice up your beautiful bridal hairdo.


Most hair pieces are created to allow your hairstylist to manipulate the comb to your hair style. Whether that means wrapping it around your bun, or weaving it into your braid, you can have a lot of fun working these accessories into your bridal look to fit your personality! 

For the bride who wants a little more drama, headbands and halos are the perfect! You can go blingy, or go fora  softer and romantic look with a floral embellishments. 


Don't worry, you can have them both! Here are examples of how hair pieces are still worn with the veil. You'll want both for your ceremony and photos, and can always remove your veil later at your reception and still have your sparkly hair piece in for the dance floor!


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!

Special gown orders begin at $1,500.

Special gown orders begin at $1,500.

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 to schedule your private appointment. We can't wait to meet you xo
