I had the most amazing experience at The Bustle! Our stylist Jordie was a dream to work with and made me feel so comfortable. I'd tried on a LOT of dresses before coming here and had been feeling so overwhelmed and indecisive, and after speaking with her about what I was looking for, the first dress I put on at The Bustle was the one! Perfect atmosphere, LOVE how you have the whole space to yourself and that you are welcomed with a personalized sign and champagne. The whole experience was just PERFECT!

I was really nervous coming into my fitting. I was worried that things wouldn't fit right and that I wouldn't feel beautiful. Leilani and Peyton were incredible though and immediately put my mind at ease. They were both very professional and picked great dresses for me to try. They were very receptive to our comments and did a great job of having me try a variety. I loved so many of the dresses that I tried! I ended up purchasing a dress, and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day!! I live about 1.5 hours away in Riverside, and this experience was well worth the drive. The champagne was also a super fun touch that made the experience even more special! Overall, I would 100% recommend The Bustle to any bride!

My experience at The Bustle was nothing short of amazing! The day felt like an absolute dream! Brook was so helpful and made me feel so comfortable. She pulled dresses that fit exactly what I had been envisioning! With her help it was easy to say YES to my dress by the end of the appointment! :)

I had a great experience at The Bustle! The associate working with us was fabulous - she was able to find dresses and add detail to find exactly the dress I was looking for. Easily the best dress shopping experience I had

Today we had an excellent day at The Bustle with our fabulous sales rep Jordan. From the moment we arrived with the chalkboard out front to welcome us, we were well cared for and enjoyed every minute! And we said ‘yes’ to a dress that brought tears to our eyes!

Amanda was amazing to work with! She was not only attentive but very thoughtful in the gowns she pulled for me to try on. I appreciated that she pulled a few gowns that were different from the styles I have tried on before. My vision for what I saw myself wearing on my wedding day totally changed. I would recommend that anyone who is looking for a personal and caring experience in wedding gown shopping should visit the Bustle. Their staff are incredibly knowledgable and caring about making the whole experience enjoyable.

I said yes to the dress! I had an AMAZING experience purchasing my dress here. The entire experience was very personalized and relaxed. From my name outside to the champagne and pre picked dresses, it was out of this world. I was very nervous and stressed out before my appointment but that quickly went away with Jordans help. Jordan really understood what I was looking for and was extremely accommodating. Getting the chance to pick dresses in the look book prior to the appointment was a big help too! The entire experience was very private and special :)

I had an amazing experience at the Bustle! Jordan was so helpful in narrowing down what I liked and didn't like and making suggestions. It was my first time trying on wedding dresses so I really didn't think I'd walk out with one, but I loved every dress I tried and ended up saying yes to the dress! I had a party of 9 other girls with me and they got to have champagne, play music, and eat mini-cupcakes, so the Bustle made the whole day a great experience!

I had the most wonderful experience at The Bustle! Peyton was an AMAZING help and made me feel comfortable the entire time. We never felt rushed and she was so supportive of me, even though we had just met. Amazing people and beautiful dresses!

I walked into The Bustle hoping I’d find a dress. Not only did I walk out with my dream gown, I also walked away with an immense feeling of gratitude for an unforgettable experience that Leilani and her team provided for me. Throughout the duration of my entire appointment, the attention to detail, the knowledgeable advice and the completely personalized process won me over and opened my eyes to an experience I didn’t know I was craving! Thank you to everyone at The Bustle!

We had a lovely experience and even found THE ONE at this adorable boutique! The setup is amazing where you have an intimate experience with only you, your family, friends and your stylist. Our stylist, Jordie, was amazing and I 100% recommend stopping by to try on the gorgeous gowns they have at this amazing place.

Brook was so great! she listened to everything I asked for. She was concise of my budget and gave valuable advice. I would definitely refer people to her and bustle.

Brook was amazing! She was extremely attentive and patient and made my wedding dress shopping truly enjoyable. From the second we came into the shop, Brook was inviting and catered to not only myself, but offered champagne to my family as they were waiting on my wardrobe changes. I went to several shops within a two-day trip to LA and San Diego, and the experience at The Bustle was hands down the best experience. Extremely happy that I said yes to the dress at The Bustle!

I had a lovely experience at The Bustle this morning at my appointment with Paytin to find my wedding dress! I was amazed that every dress she pulled for me was exactly what I was looking for. They were all beautiful and I appreciate the time she spend with my Aunt and I. I am looking forward to attending my second appointment with Paytin, this time with my mom, to hopefully choose “the one” out of the top 3 dresses I love the most! Thank you for the great customer service, beautiful wedding gown options, and your patience and understanding knowing I could not pick the dress without my mom.

I had the most magical experience with Jordan. I had picked out dresses before getting there and she made sure to pull all my favorites. But she pulled a dress that was no where on my radar, not a style I was planning on liking. She must have known because it was the first dress she put me in and it was the one. She let me try on almost a dozen more before putting me back into my favorite. She dressed me up, gave me a bouquet to hold and I knew it was the dress I was going to get married in. I didn’t catch the names of the other 2 ladies that came to help but they all were just so genuine and sweet. It never felt like a sales pitch, I’m confident that had I not found the right dress they would have been just as sweet and accommodating to me and my guests. I can’t thank Jordan enough for making this day so special for me and my family and my mother in law. The whole day was magical and I’m so happy I came to the Bustle first. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Oh where to begin. I have to say, walking up to a cute little wedding boutique and seeing your name welcoming you as the "bride to be" has to be one of the sweetest gestures. The adorable little half door allows you to see into the boutique, the ladies at the front desk and all of the dresses along the walls. They have a simple and elegant seating area where two glasses of champagne were waiting for my friend Shannon and I upon arrival. Leilani and your new employee that was training (sorry i didn't grab her name!) were an absolute delight to work with. She asked me many questions about my big day, really getting a feel for my venue and my personality. I was blown away with the variety of dresses that she was able to pull for me that fit my general style and budget and even more importantly I really appreciated that she let me speak my mind before anyone else spoke theirs. She and the trainee worked really well together, helping each other and you could tell that they both cared to be there. When Leilani saw the look on my face when I found a dress I loved, she quickly found many accessories to show me what else I could do with my look. After going to many other appointments around San Diego, this appointment stood out to me with how they made me feel. Everything from the ambience down to the friendliness - it was everything I was hoping it would be. Thanks again to the two ladies that made that day so memorable, I can't wait to come back and say yes to the dress with my 'I do' crew.

I had the best experience at the Bustle! Paytin was such a joy to work with. She made my sisters, my mom and I feel at home and made dress shopping such a fun experience! I found my dream dress and Paytin helped me find the perfect accessories to complete the look! I can’t wait to wear my dress on my wedding day! Thank you Bustle for helping me say yes to my dress!

I had such a great time during my appt, my stylist Leilani (and the trainee) we’re both fantastic. I loved that I was able to express my opinion freely and it was welcomed with a smile. They both worked hard to get every dress option available to me and I appreciated their sweet compliments.

It was one of the best dress shopping experiences I've had yet. She really took the time to understand what I was looking for and picked out great dresses for me to try on.

Loved it! Paytin was so lovely. And so prepared - your online pick which styles you want and tell us why is amazing. I’ve tried on LITERALLY 6x and no one else has had that or been nearly as professional or dialed in. The chalkboard sign outside was also so sweet and made me feel really special. Even if I don’t end up getting my dress here I’m making sure I send everyone I know to look for theirs here!

This boutique has an incredible selection of dresses! I really want to say a big thank you to Paytin who helped me find my dress! Her customer service was exceptional. Not only is she friendly and patient, but she’s also a genuinely kind person. She really went that extra mile to accommodate my needs and I’m very grateful for all her help. If you’re looking for a boutique with a great selection, but also want to feel like the staff genuinely care - this is the boutique you need to visit.

Mariah was more than I could have imagined in a consultant. She was funny, fast, helpful and made sure I remembered it was about me- not the other opinions in the room. She also pulled dresses she thought I’d like based in the reactions I was giving. She was patient, and thanks to her nails, she sped thru buttons like I’ve never seen. She was magnificent.

Mariah was so helpful in helping me pick my dream dress! I came in twice since I couldn't decide the first time in. Mariah helped to style and accessorize my dress to make sure it was definitely the right one. My friends and family who came with me also had an amazing experience and the rooms were very comfortable. Thanks Mariah for helping me find the perfect dress!!

This was my first time trying on dresses and Mariah was amazing! She was so sweet and made me feel comfortable. Customer service is huge to me and if I didn't find my dress at my next appointment this day, I would be back. But I will definitely recommend The Bustle to anyone I know looking for a wedding dress!

The experience we had was amazing!!! I loved that we had the entire suite section to ourselves when selecting my dress. The sign outside showing our appointment made all the more special. I felt so at ease and relaxed while trying on each dress! The best wedding dress shopping out there!

I had the best experience at The Bustle in Del Mar. Robyn was wonderful and really knew how to showcase dresses I already loved and styles I had yet to realize I loved. I came with my mom and sister and it was the perfect girls day. In the end I said yes to the dress! I'd recommend everyone check out The Bustle when looking for their special dress!

The Bustle was my first bridal dress appointment. I found looking for dresses online overwhelming so I've honestly been putting this part of wedding planning off. Robyn was amazing! She took her time and showed me a variety of styles so that I could narrow down two that I liked. She was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Overall it was a great experience and I'm excited to come back to try on my top two dresses!

Leilani is amazing!! So patient and helpful. She gave me time to make the best choice and I felt no pressure. She had a real eye for the style I was looking for and made sure I was 100% satisfied, I would highly recommend her to all new brides, she’s a gem. I had been to another boutique as well after our first visit and it wasn’t even comparable when it came to the quality of service I got thru the Bustle.

My experience was amazing! My stylist was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She knew exactly what I was looking for and was so sweet and patient. She helped me into the dresses and was extremely attentive. The suite was private, elegant and so comfortable. I was so nervous when I got there because I'm overweight and was terrified I would not find a dress that looked good on me. However, my stylist didn't make me feel overweight, she made me feel comfortable and special, like a bride should feel. From the moment you get there the experience is amazing. The sign outside the door welcoming me with my name on it, was so special and heartwarming. The suite was so beautifully set-up, the champagne and the treats were cute, the suite is clean and beautiful. What a special experience, I will never forget it. Unfortunately, I did not find the dress I was looking for, but I highly recommend The Bustle, and I know many brides will find their dream dress here. The experience is exactly what every bride is looking for. Thank you for making it memorable.
