Saja Wedding Bridal Collection

Everyone once in a while a collection comes along that makes you gasp – it is rare to find a line where every dress speaks to you. Typically we will have a few favourites from each designer, but with Saja Wedding, we fell hopelessly in love with every dress!
Charming, dreamy and romantic are just some of the adjectives one could use to describe this incredible (and AFFORDABLE) collection by Yoo Lee. Perfect for garden and destination weddings in particular, every dress is less than $1500.00 Canadian, perfect for any recessionista or bride who wants a beautiful gown, but not with a huge price tag.
Sash & Bustle is proud to be the exclusive retailer for the Saja Wedding bridal collection in Toronto (and for now, all of Canada)! We will receive the entire sample collection in early December. Watch this space for the arrivals announcement so that you can book your appointment to view this gorgeous new approach to bridal.

Sneak Peak at the Shop

The amazingly talented photographer Rebecca Wood came by the shop last week to take some photographs which we can use on our website and promotional materials. She was kind enough to send over a few teaser pics which we just adore. Have a peak into our little corner of the world….isn’t it lovely? Thanks Rebecca, and also Carla at Faces By Carla for a wonderful shoot! And to Kristin Peres at Cake or Death for the custom cake she made to match the shop!

Stephanie James Couture in the House!

The Audry Dress below:

We are absolutely thrilled that our Stephanie James Couture gowns have arrived from California! The Stephanie James collection rocks a 50’s vibe with these amazing dresses that provide a wide range of options for the indie bride. Want a coloured petticoat under your Audry dress? Choose from 42 shades (aqua is our fave!) Want a custom died ribbon on the famous Josephine dress? How about green or black?

These dresses are exquisite, and Sash & Bustle is the first boutique in Canada, and exclusive boutique in Toronto to offer the collection. We have samples of the Audry, Mrs. Kennedy, Josephine and Nadine dresses, and the Dahlia will be here soon!

Want to try the gowns on in person? Please email us to make an appointment: hello at

Bridesmaids: Mixing Styles and Shades

Coren Moore recently posted some images on their blog featuring a wedding with bridesmaids sheathed in varying shades of blue – everything from the palest blue to tiffany blue to bright turquoise. The effect is amazing – and we love the variety that selecting differing dress styles and shades creates, not to mention allowing each bridesmaid to select a dress that really suits their figure!

Referring to the above photo, here’s the rundown of styles/colors, from left to right: “Rose” (Tiffany Blue), “Jillian” (Sky Blue), “Ashley” (Tiffany), “Nolan” (Light Blue), “Sarah Jessica” (Robin’s Egg), “Ashley” (Sky), “Courtney” (Light).

The Rose dress above is one of our favourites!
