L&B Brides

What our lovely Lace & Bustle Brides have to say about us!

There are not enough words to express my love for Lace & Bustle! From the first call I made to schedule my appointment, to when I walked in the door, to when I walked out the door with my dress my experience was nothing short of perfect! I tried on dresses all over the Bay Area; San Francisco, San Jose, Sonoma, Walnut Creek and at competitors in Lafayette and nothing even came close to the experience Lace & Bustle provides each and every Bride. I probably tried on 30 dresses before I came to Lace & Bustle. I was greeted with Champagne, cupcakes and a hug! I never felt rushed or pressured. Victoria and her mother are incredibly nice and they go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and beautiful. I would recommend Lace & Bustle a million times to every bride I know. They treat you like family and even send you home with gorgeous gift bags, water bottles, personalized hangers, etc. I am beyond excited to get married in September in my gorgeous gown and I have Lace & Bustle to thank for that. They will always be an amazing memory of my wedding and I cannot wait to share my big day with them!

I heard about Lace and Bustle through a friend of a friend, and I’m so glad I found it! I went wedding dress shopping in San Francisco and other places in the Bay Area, and
it felt rushed and I felt a little pressured to make a commitment. I love the Lace and Bustle store and the people. The store itself is gorgeous - classic, timeless, elegant. It doesn’t feel overwhelming with rows and rows of dresses. You can tell that each gown was carefully selected to be a part of collection. The vintage chairs were a perfect touch for friends and family to relax on. What’s even more amazing is that they offer water, tea, and champagne!! Victoria the owner and her mom Lilian were so friendly and attentive. It felt like I was at home, and they made the experience of dress shopping, which in the past had been stressful, such wonderful experience. I actually went to the Lace and Bustle three times, though I found my dress, a Ramona Keveza beauty with lace and tulle, on my first visit. Each time I went Victoria was so helpful. I wasn’t ready to commit yet, and she made the shopping experience very pleasant, and gave me my space. She walked me through how I could transform my dress - with a belt, a veil, and added rhinestone buttons - to make it truly mine. Today, I said Yes to the Dress!! So happy that I bought a special dress for my big day at such a special shop. Thank you Lace and Bustle. Can’t wait for the final gown!

To find the perfect wedding dress, I had visited 8 bridal shops in the Bay Area. I researched a lot of shops and saw that this was a relatively new one, with a perfect Yelp rating—after visiting, I definitely understood why! I worked with Aurora (alongside with Victoria who is the owner and Victoria’s mom) and had an absolutely wonderful experience. I went to shop with my mom and sister and the ladies at Lace & Bustle made us feel like we were shopping with family! Furthermore, Victoria really goes above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect. The store is beautifully laid out and not too overwhelming, but with the perfect selection of beautiful dresses, veils, and accessories. I was able to walk around and touch the dresses and pick out what I wanted to try. As someone that needs a larger size, this wasn’t always the case at other stores and I was so happy I could try everything that caught my eye. I tried on about 10 gowns here—all the dresses were gorgeous (and Victoria has amazing taste and it’s very apparent that she has carefully hand-selected and loves each gown). I received a lot of honest feedback on what was working and what didn’t and I was able to try on accessories to go with each dress. They had encouraged me to mull over the purchase for a week invited me to a trunk show for the designer whose dress I really liked so that I could save 10%. I returned a week later to say “Yes” to the dress! After I ordered the dress, I was told the dress would take about 3 months to be made and shipped to the store and I received it on time and it was almost perfect and needed very little alteration. Victoria actually met me at the tailor (with a gift!) for the alterations and helped make sure that the dress would be perfect for the big day in September. L&B—thank you so much for everything! I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a wedding gown in the Bay Area!

Wow! Lace and Bustle is a total gem. I am from Redding CA and I had been searching for my perfect dress. I went all over and tried on many dresses to many to count. As I progressed in my search I started to narrow down the specific designer I felt I liked. I would then search for any boutique that had that designers line. That is how I found Lace and Bustle in Lafayette CA. When I arrived the first time I was alone as it was none of my friends or family could make it. But that was fine because Victoria (owner) and her mother made me feel like family. I will never forget the sweet little shop and the warmest of welcome hugs all around. So there I picked my dress a gorgeous Kelly Faetanini “Maci” I loved that it had so much detail and yet there were a few minor changes the rep for Kelly’s design happen to be in the shop the following week. We decided on the changes and measured me. I was measuring between a size 2 and 4 my bodice measured closer to the 2 so we together decided on that for size. Within a few months I was able to go back and try on my dress! Perfection! No joke! The dress fit like a glove bodice to hem perfection! I can remember the tailor coming to see the fit and exclaiming - “this was made for you” and indeed it was. I am over the moon with my choice and I could of never had such a great experience without Lace and Bustle. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have total confidence I found the perfect dress and now I can’t wait to walk down that aisle in a few short months.
