I love how my dress looks when it’s bustled and I feel kind of silly with a train (especially in the mountains, which are already covered in snow!) so I have decided to have my dress bustled for the entire wedding.
Anyone else either not having a train or bustling their dress right away? Feel free to share pics!

I ordered mine without a train! I’m personally not a fan of the way bustles look, and really have no desire to have a train for 15 minutes and then have to bustle my pretty dress for the next several hours. Trains don’t particularly appeal to me in the first place, and it’s just so much easier this way. I don’t have a picture of my trainless version yet.
ETA: your dress looks really nice bustled. Mine is a full A-line, and I think bustling it would ruin the look of the back.

@Taeyers: I couldn’t order mine without, but if I could I would have. Thank you!! I’m also not usually a fan of bustles either so I was pretty nervous about how mine would look

My venue’s coordinator tried to bustle my 10-ft long train before the formal pictures! (I respectfully told her there was NO WAY I would be doing that)
Apparently, a LOT of brides would prefer to keep their trains bustles for the whole shebang!

I had my train cut off!!!! Best decision ever. I didn’t have to worry about it all night! I’m not a huge fan of the look of long trains. And I didn’t want to take time to bustle it. And the train has had to be re-buestled at almost every wedding I’ been to where the bride has a train.
I think your dress looks great bustled and it will be so much easier not to have to worry about a train! Go for it!!!
Here are some guests photos of my dress:

@orchidaloha: I never wanted a train because they always just seemed to me like a LOT of extra fabric to worry about, plus I don’t usually like the look of bustled trains.
Heres my trainless dress:

@orchidaloha: Just noticed the pic of your train bustled & it looks great! I would totally wear it like that if I were you 🙂

I actually wanted a long train but didn’t realize until my dress came in that it only had a mini train – what I referred to as more of a “puddle” haha. It turned out fine though because even the little bit of train I had got in the way, very dirty and stepped on! If you prefer your gown without the train, go ahead and keep it bustled the whole time 🙂 Anyway, here’s a guest photo of my puddle! (And long veil that should not have been bunched up)

@orchidaloha: I was quite adamant in not having a train, my dressmaker just added a little ‘oomph’ instead 🙂

I wish I hadn’t had a train. I bussled and the stich ripped out right away. Walked around with this train all night!

I didn’t have a train! I’m pretty low-fuss, our wedding was outside, and I just didn’t want to deal with a heavy bustled dress.
(Excuse my stupid face here!)

I won’t have a train either. I haven’t picked my dress yet, but I know I don’t want a train. Our wedding will be very small with a small informal ceremony and reception. As much as I love the look of a train, I think it’s too formal for our wedding.

I don’t like bustles or trains, my dress has a train, but I’ll be having it removed and the whole thing cut into ballgown length instead!
