An Elegant Evening Wedding Featuring a Bridal Gown from “The Bustle” | Del Mar, California

By, March 18, 2013

Helping brides find their dream wedding gown is an amazing experience, and it happens daily at The Bustle! For example, when Brook and Shahin celebrated their November nuptials at The Grand Del Mar this year, they were perfectly dressed for the occasion. Our bridal boutique, located in Del Mar, California, was very happy to help Brook look her best!

Typically, brides will try on many gowns during their appointment at our boutique. However, Brook spotted her dream dress right from where she was sitting, and tried it right on. Her entourage convinced her to try on a second gown, just to “be sure,” but Brook had already settled on her dream dress.


In all of our experience, we had yet to meet a bride who knew within an instant which dress was perfect for her.  The gown Brook chose was a Maggie Sottero named Fiorella, and it featured a beaded strap that she particularly loved.


And, how dramatic is the back of this dress?  What a perfect fit for The Grand Del Mar.


Brook’s veil had a gorgeous colored-ribbon edging, which we custom ordered from Toni Federici to match the color of her gown.


The pewter color of the strap gave the satin gown a lavish and creamy feel. Brook’s gown perfectly complemented her bridesmaids’ dresses and floral colors. With its elaborate rouching and pick ups, Brook’s gown mastered every detail.


Usually, as brides-to-be sip champagne and browse the many styles we carry, we also interview each one to make sure we know the look they’re after. Brook made this process incredibly easy!  From that first appointment, all the way through her alterations, it was an honor working with Brook. We just love how happy she looks with Shahin in the photo below!


At The Bustle, we like to think we’re pretty good at making bustles look magnificent!


We love working with our brides and, just like Brook, we form close relationships with each one. We carry designers such as Stella York, Cymbeline Paris, Badgley Mischka and Lillen Collection to name a few. Our gown prices are great for any price range, from $1,200 all the way up to $9,000.  Whatever budget, style, and look a bride is after, we have it. We wish Brook and Shahin the very best. Congratulations!
