@mrsmartintobe:  Your dress is so pretty! I have a similar one from Alfred Angelo but I’m not sure how I’m bustling it yet so I’m just giving your post a bump to see what other bees did! Also, from other threads it seems like it’s easier to just have a bra sewn in. I bought a strapless bra but they just never seem to fit right so hopefully it won’t be a problem for my seamstress to just sew in some cups!

I’m really curious too about alterations and pics afterwards. I definitely want to add buttons that have a little bling. The sales consultant said you can buy them at Joanns and the seamstress will add it and ill definitely need a bustle for the reception. Our 110 feet lchurch aisle will definitely need the train!!!

Just want to say that I love this dress!!  It was too much tulle for me, but I have such dress envy over it! <3

@mrsmartintobe:  When I tried it on I was engulfed in tulle (I’m only 5’3).  I really wanted to like it on me, but, at the end of the day I knew I’d feel like I’d be knocking peopl and objects over on my wedding day.

 

Gorgeous dress!  It looks beautiful on you!  I tried on a similar dress and asked about a bustle.  The alterations lady suggested a ballroom bustle — maybe something to look into for you also?

@mrsmartintobe:  I am had cups sewn into my gown for two reasons 1) I don’t have big boobies lol 2) I didn’t want any bulges

you can get either regular bra cups sewn in, gel cups (EXTREAME PUSH UP!! lol) or you can have the seamstress sew in pieces of fabric that you feed your bra through to prevent the bra from showing in the back and keep everything in place. I was helping at an alterations appt the other day and the bride had a very similar tulle skirt on her gown. Our seamstress was showing her a few different bustles she could choose from (I was curious to see because I’m Cinderella 216 and hadn’t really seen many tulle bustles yet haha) she could do a pick up with buttons, or the tulle gets layered underneath kind of giving it a fluffy princess cloud look. I don’t even know how to describe it, but it was GORGEOUS!! there were 6 spots all together that would get tied together with ribbon under the skirt. lol the seamstress said she would use 6 different colours so whoever was tying it for her knew which ribbon tied where. did you decide what kind of bustle you’re going to go with?

I think mine was called a European bustle (Not French) and basically it just hid the train and made the back look like a regular floor length gown.  I hated pickups or the idea of a ‘tail’ of bustle at my butt, so this worked perfectly and kept the lines of the dress beautifully in tact. good luck! post pics of what you choose!
