Hi there! I’m Enzoani bride as well (Casablanca) and I am going with a french bustle.  It sits very nicely up ‘under’ the dress 🙂

@MrsWright:  No problem!  I’m doing a french bustle on my dress but it looks different with an assymetrical lines and bubble hem.  My only concern is that it might be harder/more time consuming to bustle.  But all dresses are one way or another I feel like 🙂

My dress is the Sottero and Midgley Tracey. It has a similar silhouette and fit. I am going to do a traditional 13 point bustle. There is a photo on the boards here of another brides 13 point bustle in the Tracey and it is stunning! The dress is gorgeous, good luck!

I had a fit & flare but I don’t like the look of bustled dresses so I had a simple under-tuck for my dress.  That’s not the formal word but basically the train was folded under inside my dress and buttoned inside.

@MrsWright:  Hi! Not sure if you already mae your mind up on a bustle BUT I am also a Dakota bride. I have had a nightmarish experience with my bustle lady. The lady I first went to placed large white satin buttons on the back (my dress is ivory) and it was going to be 3 point “american bustle”. I hated it. It looked not very pretty in my opinion. I never went back to her and found a second seamstress. She showed me options but I loved the french bustle.

The train has ALOT ALOT ALOT of material. She is able to do 4 ribbons underneatch the dress.  I am going in on Friday and trying it on. I’ll take pictures!
