Oh and the single french bustle plus the single over bustle made me look like I had a tail since they had to start it so high! I refuse to have a tail at my wedding!

I’m short and my dress has a train too. They did a 5-point french bustle on mine also.

Same here, I’m super short (4’11”!) with a cathedral train, but I think 3-5 point french bustles are so divine, and would look gorgeous with your gown.

That gown is stunning! I have a long train too (chapel) but I am a little taller. They are doing a snap bustle for mine so I wont lose any of the back detailing on my dress.

Just wanted to chime in with all of the french bustle comments!  I’m short as well, 5’1, and my dress also has a cathedral train and I plan on getting a french bustle.  I haven’t been fitted yet, so I’m not sure if I’ll have a 3 or 5 point bustle…

I totally second (or third or fourth) the french bustle. They can actually make the multiple points in order to get the look that you want, and so that it accentuates the border detail too!
