It’s Sash + Bustle’s mission to give brides a fun and enjoyable experience. Here are some useful tips about your appointment.
Yes! We operate by appointment only and have a dedicated stylist working with each bride. We are an intimate boutique and are unable to accommodate walk-ins.

We find it most comfortable to order your gown 10 months prior to your wedding day. The bridal gowns are made to order and take 4-6 months to produce. When factoring in alteration time it can take up to 6-8 months to have your gown in-hand and fitting perfectly for the big day. That said, we do accommodate rush requests whenever possible. Please let us know if you have a tight timeline before your wedding and we’ll guide you to collections that we can order quickly. Rush fees may apply.
We absolutely do! We have recently expanded our Off The Rack collection to help brides on tight timelines or with limited budgets find their dream dress.
We order the dress in as close to your size as possible, but in most cases a wedding gown will need alterations to give you the perfect, tailored fit.
We do not offer in-house alteration services. We are happy to provide a list of expert seamstresses in the GTA that do excellent work. We have also been working on a national and international list of recommended seamstresses for all of you out of town brides-to-be!
Sash + Bustle’s sample gowns range from size 6 to 24. We do our best to buy average sizing to be able to fit as many women as possible. Many of the designers offer sizing up to size 24– 30, but not all of them.
Our gowns start at $1,800 and top out at $8,500. On average the Sash + Bustle bridal gowns range between $2,500 and $3,500.
We recommend flesh-toned undergarments. For the bottoms: seamless thongs, fullbacks or shapewear - whatever your preference. For the top: that is also your call, most dresses have built in support so you can feel free to go without a bra, if prefer a little more support we recommend a flesh-toned strapless bra.
A Trunk Show is a special event when our boutique features a specific designer’s entire or latest collection for a limited time. Often the designer attends in person, and sometimes lucky brides can be eligible for discounts! To visit a Trunk Show, please browse our events page to see all of the upcoming Trunk Shows. Also see our blog for everything you need to know about a Trunk Show.
Due to the boutique being a heritage building it is not entirely wheelchair accessible. Please call the boutique for any accessibility requests.
There are 2 on-site parking spots available at S+B. There are also numerous paid parking sites in the area, including a Green P at the north-east corner of Berkeley St and Richmond St.
Yes! During your transaction you have the optional ability to add a tip. If you have enjoyed the service from your stylist and wish to gift them a tip - go for it! If not, a happy bride who found their dream gown is all the thanks we need!

Appointments are free at S+B but we have recently implemented a cancellation fee of $50 + HST. Due to the increased demand for Bridal Appointments, this fee allows us to more easily schedule brides from our growing waitlist - ensuring that as many brides as possible can have the S+B experience! A cancellation fee of $50 will be charged if you cancel within 48 hours of your appointment time or do not show up to your appointment.
