    I bustled my dress during photos (which we did beforehand) and then again immediately after the ceremony.  Looking back, I wish I had unbustled it for photos, but we were walking a distance and I was worried about the train getting dirty (we took photos on a lawn).  In the end, for me, it didn’t really matter because my bustle broke when I sat down to sign the marriage license.  I tried to safety pin it, but it was pretty much a lost cause.  I just slung it over my arm for most of the night.  Classy, right?

    I will definitely be bustling mine just before the reception after photos. It just wouldn’t be feasible to have it down during the reception, it’s a 6 foot train! Smile We are going to take some nightime photos after the reception by the walls of waterfalls and I will leave it up so it doesn’t get all wet!

    I plan to bustle mine right before the reception.  I don’t want to risk anyone stepping on it. 🙂

    I did the bustle right before the reception because i’ll have to walk around a lot (at least from table to table). If you’re going to dance, most likely you need the dress to be bustled before then as well.

    RIGHT before I walked in the door. Darling Husband was poking around my booty trying to hook it up. Ahhhh freedom!

    I wonder if I have to bustle my dress. I’m so clueless when it comes to that. I just can’t imagine doing anything to change the dress. 🙁

    It’s a chapel train, but I’m not sure exactly how chapel. When I tried it on, it seemed like it had no train, but maybe that’s cause I was entirely too tall for it.

    My train isn’t particularly long, so I’m thinking before dancing.

    Is it a bad idea not to bustle? I’m getting way too paranoid about this before I’m even at that step. :/
