i have what i consider a small train, and recently i saw a photo online of a bride w a train my length who was dancing w the train just flowing around her. in another photo she was using a loop on the train to hold up the skirt. my train has a loop in it but i thought it was for hanging the dress. do you think her bustle broke before these photos or she just didnt get a bustle? anyone out there NOT bustling their dress? after seeing those photos i am reconsidering bc it just looked pretty being flowy on the dance floor.

I am totally afraid I (or somebody else) will step on it if I don’t bustle it. I also totally love the way the back of the dress looks with the train bustled. My dress laces, and so that provides most of the detail in the back – the skirt is fairly plain. I was actually convinced I might want the train removed – until I was how really gorgeous it looks bustled up.
My irrational foot fear probably comes from my sister’s wedding – she had a chapel train, and not only did she get her heel caught once in the underskirts of the dress (while walking down the aisle with my dad at the very beginning of the ceremony) and once in the train (while fussing around for photos), but her husband stepped on the train at least once. He denies it, but we believe it was the print of his shoe…

I’m not bustling my dress. It’s got three layers of silk tulle and a chapel train. I looked at bustling it, and it just didn’t look right. So, I had hidden loops put in at each layer and will be connecting the loops together and holding it by looping it through my right middle finger. And given that my dress it really flowy, it’s quite a beautiful effect!

My sister had a small train to her dress , and had all the strings put in for bustling , but ended up not bothering with it. She didn’t want to spend the time away from her guests and party. I havn’t decided either way on my.
