Amazing experience despite the pandemic!
I was worried that dress shopping during the pandemic wouldn't be the experience that I had envisioned however the staff at Sash & Bustle treated me like royalty and I had an AMAZING experience at their shop! The shop is well organized, adorably decorated and makes you feel like you are right at home - all precautions have been taken to ensure social distancing and safety. I was able to try many styles and dresses while staying within my budget. Veronica was attentive, listening to everything that I said and she made a point to ask how I felt in each dress. She knew exactly what I needed and was patient with me while I made my decision. They have a great assortment of Wtoo and Willowby dresses, which are hard to come by in Ontario. Although they do not do alterations in house, they were able to give lots of recommendations of seamstresses that their customers have used in the past. I am so happy that I said YES at Sash & Bustle - I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 25/07/2020
Sash & Bustle's reply:Thank you so much for all these kinda words! We had so much fun being a small part of your wedding dress shopping memories. We will hold them close to our hearts! It is so great to hear that you and your loved ones were having as much fun as Veronica was working with you!

😍 can’t wait to wear this dress
This was the best experience. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sash & Bustle. Brendan was amazing, and made me feel so comfortable during my appointment, all while having a blast! Brendan listening to everything that I was looking for, and also encouraged me to try on some dresses that I was unsure about -- which was great! I ended up picking the first dress I tried on :). When I came back to pick up my dress, it was the same wonderful experience, (just at a new beautiful location) I had the first time. I cannot wait until I get to wear this dress!!! Thank you to everyone at Sash & Bustle, and Brendan.Sent on 31/03/2021

Must stop shop in Toronto
I visited 6 bridal shops on my hunt because I had to see everything before I could decide. Sash and Bustle was by far the best experience and offered the greatest selection of dresses.Sent on 30/08/2021
I've been looking for something unique and comfortable and not many other shops offered that. The dresses at S+B were so much softer and more comfortable than other shops I visited while still within budget.
Sash & Bustle's reply:Hi Taylee! Thank you so much for stopping by S+B and for the lovely words! We're so happy to hear that you had a great experience with our team. Having a variety of gowns for every bride, is very important to us - so we're so glad you were able to find some good picks. We can't wait to have you back! xo

The store is in a very lovely newly renovated house and the change rooms are spacious (super important during Covid) and charming. The staff are very helpful and reply super fast to email. One unusual thing about this store is after I paid the deposit on the dress on the first trip they asked if I would like to tip them, but they said no pressure.
My dress came on time three and a half months later and I took my mom to pick it up. She has bad knees and when she made a comment about worrying how slow she would be going up the stairs, they put us on a first floor changeroom. They take pictures of you after you choose your dress and again after you pick it up, for social media. The dress came with a really sweet message from the store that will look lovely in pictures. All in all it was a great experience and the customer service was excellent.Sent on 16/07/2021

Team of Sash & Bustle
I studied Business Management at Conestoga College and Ryerson University. In addition to my extensive education, I invested 11 years in the hospitality industry, filling roles from entry level to management. After working with more than 75 brides to plan and execute their weddings, I earned that this overwhelming task is much more enjoyable when the people assisting you are friendly, realistic, and down to earth – and that’s the philosophy I bring to Sash & Bustle. While much of my work happens behind the scenes making the store's operations run seamlessly, I make it a priority to meet each and every bride. I'm like the Sash & Bustle momma bear, helping ensure that each stylist is supported in providing the one-on-one, attentive service we stand for. When I got married I wore one of my favourite Canadian designers Truvelle for my special day. My husband Dillon couldn’t hold his happy tears back.
My love of art and design began at a young age and eventually led me to study at Ryerson University’s School of Fashion. As a student, I was recognized with several awards. My designs were the People’s Choice Winner in the 2013 Toronto Art of Fashion competition and I even had a leather jacket design chosen to be produced by Danier. I bring my aesthetic gifts to creating a strong visual identity for Sash & Bustle. While managing the shopping experience and buying with my sister, I also oversee the store’s social media and creation of our visual advertisements. I recently became a Sash & Bustle bride myself when I married my high school sweetheart, Eric, wearing an incredible Carol Hannah gown.
What makes you love what you do at S&B?
Simply being around love. Hearing how couples meet, fall in love and make the decision to celebrate it gives me all the warm and fuzzies!
Who is your favourite designer in the S&B collection?
Ooo! Fav designer is pretty hard with our selection… but if I had to pick, I’d say Robert Bullock.
What S&B bridal gown would you rock to your wedding?
Okay… if I could… I would start out sleek and modern for the ceremony in RBB’s Rea, eat and look sweet in Truvelle’s Carrall and party hard in KWH’s Lottie! That’s more than one though…lol
How do you love to style and accessorize a bride?
I like to style and accessorize according to a bride’s personal style. A simple sparkle is never a bad choice and I am a huge sucker for florals.
What’s on your playlist right now?
RuPaul’s Super Model on repeat, anything Motown or funky, and a splash of 90’s throwbacks
Have any secret talents?
Secret talents are secret for a reason!
Favourite thing to do when you’re not killing it at S&B?
I love watching movies with my guy Steve and spending time on patios with my girls. Basically sitting a lot…
