I took my dress to the seamstress today, and she told me that a bustle will cost me $90! WHAT!?!? Along with other alterations…ugh. I am not much of a dancer so other than the first dance, I’m not sure I’ll really dance much…but I’m scared of it being stepped on or getting dirty (the bottom layer by the floor is lace). So…what do you think? My train isn’t super long…

my Future Sister-In-Law had a bustle but for her first dance she just held the train in her hand, i actually think she had like a ribbon that she could put around her wrist. it was really pretty, especially in pictures. but then she bustled for dancing. I have a bustle and ill need it..but ill be on the dancefloor all night.

I had a bustle, but it totally ripped out by the end of the night.
I wish I’d just gone without a train at all!

My train was pretty long, so I definitely needed a bustle. If your train hangs on the ground at all, I’d recommend getting one. Besides dancing, I had to walk around a lot and greet everyone at the reception. My train would have been stepped on a lot if it wasn’t bustled!
Do you know what kind of bustle she was going to do? Some are more expensive than others. Maybe you could ask for something simple?

I definately need to do a bustle but have no idea what kind. My dress has a cathedral train.

I had a very small train (sweep train) and needed a bustle…but even with a bustle my dress got stepped on and it ripped by the end of the night!
