The National Bridal Sale Event is going on at Bella Bridal Gallery, and we can’t wait to help all of our brides! July 20th – 27th is the time of year when brides can come in and shop our designer wedding dresses for a fraction of the original price. Select samples are priced up to 70% off! This is a great way to save money, but still get the quality, designer wedding dress of your dreams. Below, you’ll find some common questions and answers about the event.


Most of the wedding dress samples in our store are bridal sizes 10 and 12, however we offer select plus-size samples for sale up to size 24. During the National Bridal Sale Event, there is something for everyone. At Bella Bridal, we are proud to offer in-house expert alterations. If you fall in love with a dress that does not fit perfectly, do not worry. Our seamstresses are skilled in taking in dresses many sizes, and letting them out where needed.


Most of the wedding dress samples are the traditional ivory color, but we also have a lot of samples for sale in champagne and blush. There are not many stark white dress samples for sale in our store, however we find that ivory tends to be universally flattering, and the most popular color choice among brides.

Shopping for wedding gowns can be overwhelming at times, but knowing the right information can help make the process easier. The biggest problems “brides to be” run in to is what shape fits them the best and looks the best.  We’re here to give some pointers that should help brides find their perfect fit.



A-line gowns are perfect for brides who have a slender shape and are looking to accentuate their curves. This fit is flattering on all brides and is perfect for brides looking to show off their figure while having that look of a ballgown.

Fit and Flare


A Fit and Flare gown is perfect for a bride with curves who is looking to show them off. This is a great fit for taller brides because it lengthens their figure.



A Sheath dress is perfect for a bride looking for comfort and style. This is a perfect style for a beach wedding or destination wedding because it’s light and comfortable.

Ball Gown


Every bride wants to feel like a princess and a ball gown is the perfect style. Ball gowns can be worn by brides with any figure or stature.  Whether you’re petite or tall or if you are curvy or slender this style will fit any bride.

There are so many different styles of wedding gowns out there, and there is a fit and style for every bride to be! These are just a few styles that are great for any bride.


When you buy a wedding dress now, some are surprised to learn that the bustle is not built in to the dress. The reason why is because the hem of the dress has to be done at the same time and until you come in for your fittings, there is no way to know the height to hem your dress. There are so many variety’s of bustles offered and during your fittings, these options will be offered to you.



Why do I need to bustle my dress?

Bustling your wedding dress keeps it up and out of the way once your ceremony is over and you want to mingle with your guest and have fun!

Do I bustle my own dress?

When bustling your dress you will need another helping hand! During your alterations the seamstress will build your bustle according to your hem length. It is very difficult to add a bustle yourself to a wedding gown because you run the risk of tearing it or causing damage to the dress. It is better if the bustle is added in when your dress is hemmed by a professional seamstress.

What types of Bustles are offered?

The French Bustle: This is a common bustle used for Ball Gowns or dresses with a very short train. This is an under bustle used to show off the intricate detailing of a dress. Color coded ribbons under the skirt are used to give the bustle it’s effect.


The Traditional Bustle: A traditional bustle is used when the bride does not want a full effect in the back of the dress. A traditional train is a little softer and pins on top of the dress instead of under. This is done by using clear buttons along the back of the dress to pin the train up. This keeps it out of the way when dancing and walking around.




Have you heard news? White and ivory are out, rich champagnes and blush tones are in!

Choosing a muted, yet colorful shade can add a unique feel to your wedding. We saw Jessica Biel do it in 2012 when she married Justin Timberlake in a gorgeous pink wedding dress, and the trend has lived on since then! Muted pinks, champagnes, mochas, and even blues look gorgeous in wedding gowns.

These days, almost every designer offers a wide variety of color selections. Our favorite designers are Martina Liana, Essense of Australia, and Sophia Tolli. They all offer a beautiful range of different colors. cayla_stevie_alt1-530x845


These soft, blushy, neutral colors are absolutely gorgeous on anyone! Traditional White can be harsh on the skin tone, while these warmer colors can really compliment it.



Textured Skirts, and champagne beading are huge this season! Changing the color of your dress or the tone of your beading or lace can make all the difference if you are looking for that unique touch to your special day.
