I bought an organza dress from DB (WG9859). I love it but my seamstress quoted me up to $100 to bustle. Because organza is so delicate, to bustle it will need many points and thread chains to make sure the organza bustles correctly and doesn’t droop. I am on a tight budget and already paid $650 for the dress. Does anyone know of some better alternatives to bustling or has anyone has experience bustling this dress. Thank you!

Unfortunately, I won’t be much help, but I just wanted to say that that dress is lovely.

if you didn’t want to bustle at all, you could always do a wrist loop with the train, like this:
if it wouldnt drive you nuts to be holding it all night (and if the train is long enough not to pick the rest of the dress up)

my FSIL did the wrist loop – it was very very pretty and elegant especially when she was dancing – but i think it would drive me crazy to be holding my train all night.
here are some pics of the wrist loops – i actually really love the way they look
Did you use a wrist loop? Pictures, please!

I agree. I think that the wrist loop would drive me crazy too. Also, although the top layer is organza, the bottom layer is a bit heavy so I would get a biscep workout all night! Not fun! I think I may have to bite the bullet and get a bustle. After all, you only get married once! Hopefully! Thanks ladies!
