I need some advice – I bought this dress at a sample sale, and surprisingly, it fits me perfectly! I am deciding whether or not to add a bustle – I’ve attached pictures for you guys to see the back of the dress. The last picture is of me (doesn’t show the whole back unfortunately)
I’m changing into a reception dress 1/4 of the way into the reception.
Thoughts? If you think I need a bustle, what type of bustle do you recommend?
Thanks everyone in advance! 🙂

If you’re changing into a reception dress I would say there is no need for a bustle. You won’t be trying to dance or anything in this dress right?

If you are going to be wearing the dress for any of the reception I would suggest a bustle. Otherwise, you are going to have to worry about people stepping on your dress and possibly ripping it. If you want to wear a reception dress, maybe you should change into it at the start of the reception to avoid having to bustle at all?

I’m confused, it looks like the top picture is bustled, while the bottom two aren’t… I would say yes, bustle it, if you are going to wear it for your first dance (if you’re having one). If you’re just going to walk in, eat, cut the cake, etc. but won’t really be moving around a lot until you change into the other dress, then you probably don’t need to bustle.

It depends at what point in the reception you plan on changing dresses. A friend of mine didn’t bustle hers at all for the entire reception so if you’re looking to save some major cash – don’t bustle! If you do, definitely a French bustle!

Its definitely beautiful with the bustel in the back. If you are planning on not wearing it long though, I dont know that the cost of putting in a bustle would be worth it. Are you doing your first dance in it? If so I would do the bustle so you or your DH doesnt trip over it!
