I went for my final dress fitting this weekend.
I was a little worried because my 200+ wedding turned into an intimate under 50 person wedding. So I thought my dress would be too much.
Well after trying it on, I still love it as much as ever and feel that hopefully people won’t judge me too much for still wearing it.
The only thing I am not 100% on is the “bustle”. There is just a small button on the dress that I pin my dress on to. And then the girl said I have to buy saftey pins to pin the rest on. So I am thinking about calling them and asking if there is something else they could do. So any suggestions about that would be appreciated.

I’m afraid I don’t know much about bustles, but being told to safety-pin it doesn’t sound right to me…

gorgeous!!!! my BFF’s seamstress added ribbon (color coordinated) to the underneath od her dress so we just had to tie the two pieces of ribbon together to bustle it!

Don’t poke safety pin holes in your dress, ask for an alternative- firmly.

It looks great on you! Tell that girl she’s nuts if you’re going to spend hundreds if not thousands on a dress and then safety pin it like a hillbilly.

The dress is gorgeous, but have to admit I’m not a fan of the bustle. Can you do an under-bustle and fold up the train inside your dress? I just dont care for where the bustle starts on your dress, right at your butt. And yeah, no safety pins unless it’s an emergency!!!

You look so beautiful!!!! I’d give input on the bustle, but I know nothing about them. I love the dress though!!

You look gorgeous!!! I would ask a different seamstress to do a more secure bustle for you, if your salon won’t.

Thank you guys so much!!!!
So I just called my shop back and they said that I can come in and the seamstress will make the bustle the way I want it! I asked her about ribbons but she said it can only be done with buttons! I guess we will see when I go back in!
