How are you going to walk/dance around without it being bustled?? I ancipate people stepping all over it throughout the night if you don’t bustle it.

If you don’t want a back bustle you could always have it gathered at your wrist and tied there.  I agree that it is more likely to get damaged if it isn’t bustled.

If you plan on doing anything besides sitting, you need to have it bustled.

People will be stepping all over it if you don’t. :/

Lace trains aren’t destroyed by bustles. They’re actually easier to bustle because they’re so light, so one button is all it should need. What will destroy it is everyone stepping on it.

I would definitely do a bustle to avoid damage to the dress by dragging it around and having people step on the train. I have never heard anything positive about the wrist strap from brides who have tried it. I think a bustle is the least amount of hassle to allow you to dance and enjoy your evening!

My cousin didn’t bustle her train during the reception, and even though it wasn’t super long, it still got stepped on a lot.  Could hear her scream from the other end of the hall because she would almost trip and fall.  IMO, always better to bustle.

If you care about it being damaged you definately need to bustle it. And not use a wrist thingy. A real, hard-core, durable, bustle.
