Sash + Bustle Dress Review

Sash and Bustle was the only store I went to for my wedding dress shopping. They were so warm and welcoming, so accommodating and so helpful! They made the whole process such a breeze that I was able to find my dress during my one appointment! I did the luxe experience and it was just such a lovely setup. The bubbly and snacks made it a comfortable and enjoyable setting and experience and the private room made me feel so special. Shout out to Stevie for helping me find my dream dress and for being such a wonderful stylist! Thank you to the whole team for the wonderful experience me, my family, and friends were able to have thanks to you!

Great experience wedding dress shopping!

I had a great experience at Sash + Bustle back in January when I was dress shopping. Even though I didn't end up buying my dress there, the process was smooth, efficient, and fun. They have a great variety of options and Stevie made us feel at ease, listening to our feedback and getting us additional options that matched the style I was looking for. The place is very cool and I would definitely recommend you stop by if you are looking for a wedding dress!

Boutique experience

This was the first of two bridal shops I visited and the one I bought my dress at. The employees were professional and the experience felt carefully crafted. I actually came back twice more within the same week (I had to make a decision quickly) and they were able to slot me in! I even came back later to try on shoes.
I never had a "cry because this is my dress" moment, but I am very happy with my purchase. We tried a new dress during my last visit and with a clever suggestion from the staff we added a beautiful skirt, which gave me both vibes I wanted.
I had no issues with pickup of the dress and everything came in on time. We handled the alterations ourselves, but S&B offered a set of suggested vendors.

Beautiful Dress, Veil and Hairpiece 🤍

I had a very unique experience purchasing my dress… I bought my Karen Willis Holmes dress through an Instagram live sale with Sash and Bustle during COVID. They taught me how to measure myself and confirmed with me over the phone that I had done it properly. When I picked up the dress, it was perfect. I did need slight alterations and Sash and Bustle gave me some contacts. I eventually returned to an in-store appointment to get a veil and a hair piece. The gentlemen who helped me was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. I did happen to go to a couple other boutiques and Kleinfeld to try on some dresses to get that “experience” and most were rude and strict with time limits and number of dresses you could try on. My experience at Sash and Bustle may not have been your typical way of getting a wedding dress but it all worked out perfectly!

Best wedding shoes!

I bought my wedding shoes at Sash and Bustle. It was a great experience from start to finish! They did not rush us all even though we were buying shoes and looking for accessories, and not a dress. We felt like true VIPS. I got so many compliments on my shoes and they matched my look perfectly. Could not more highly recommend this store.

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.

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.

Lovely experience

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.

Disappointing

I was very excited to have my first bridal experience with sash and bustle. Sadly it wasn’t a good experience. We sat down with our sales rep and discussed budget/dresses etc. Then went to pick out dresses. We were kindly reminded of our budget and what was in our budget when looking around. Once we picked the dresses we began trying on. I didn’t have that WOW moment until I tried this one dress on. I cried, my mom cried. It was the perfect moment. I was then told it was almost 2,000 over budget. I was crushed! It really put a damper on the experience. I think the sales rep need to listen to their brides more and adhere to their budgets.

😍 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.

Vanessa Dineen
Co-owner

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.

Andrea Dineen
Andrea Dineen
Co-owner

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?
    I love the collaborative aspect of it. Working together with the bride to find what works for them and hopefully their dream dress! Forewarning- if there's crying when the bride says yes, I'll cry too.

  • WHEN YOU'RE NOT KILLING IT AT S+B WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
    When I’m not at S+B, I’m either thrifting or cooking. I love to try new recipes and make fun cocktails. I also love to thrift vintage housewares and share them with others through my little shop.
