So since being on the boards, I’ve noticed quite a few ladies asking what kind of bustle to get for their dress and that they had to pay for it along with their alterations. I was chatting with my Mum the other day about my dress (since she paid for it and will be paying for alterations) and mentioned about having to choose and pay for a bustle to be put in. She flipped a bird. We were shown by the saleswoman at the bridal store HOW the dress can be/would be/should be (not sure which) bustled. My mum claims she saw the buttons for the bustle, but I have no clue because I was obviously in the dress and the woman didn’t pin the train at all. Mum claims she’s gonna go bat shit crazy if she has to pay for a bustle to be put in… and will even take the dress to a different seamstress.
So ladies, is it really THAT normal to have to choose and pay for a bustle to be put in? Or are there some that already come with one?
BTW: This isn’t a rant, vent or anything of the kind against my Mum… I was quite entertained by the whole ordeal. I don’t care where or whom alters my dress, as long as it’s done properly, so this is just a curious-type post.
