I am doing it as well as getting a bustle.  I want to do my first dance using the wrist loop.  I’ll have pics after June 9th.  🙂

I love the look, it’s so romantic – makes me think of Cinderella holding her dress.

Unfortunately my train was too short – if I held it up I’d be showing half the back of my legs too Laughing

I did collect some pics though as this was an option I considered before I found my dress (I really don’t like bustles). I’ll dig them out in a few days if you can wait that long (currently at work then going away for the weekend).

I had a bustle put on my dress…I personally am not a fan of the wrist loop…it just makes me think of the train hanging loop….but my SIL did not have a bustle done and just used her hanging tag for the train all night…but about half way through got sick of holding it up and just endeding up dragging her train around all night…but you’d get a pretty good left arm workout… 🙂

I have to say, I can’t really see a problem with just walking round with a train…I mean, it’s the most impractical item you’ll ever own, so why try an make it more practical?

It’s surely all about the look, and the look involves a train. It’s not like you have to keep the train nice for the next time you wear it!?! (And if we’re going to be brutally honest, how many people actually end up wearing their mother’s gown, so who are we kidding about treasuring it for the next generation?)

I’ll most likely be going with a loop for dancing, but I can see myself swishing around the rest of the time with it all following me. It’s one day to be restricted in m movements, I think I can live with that  – we suffer to be beautiful!!!

Sorry it took a while to get back to you – I couldn’t find all my old wedding files.

It turns out that I didn’t actually save many of wrist loops as they were quite hard to find!

This was my favourite as holding it that way really shows off the layers of the dress.

This was a girl from my NZ wedding forum. Her train was really long and she had a bustle at the back for later, but got a wrist loop option too so she could carry it while mingling earlier in the night.

This is rather hard to see but I think it shows that the groom is holding the loop while they dance. Very romantic but you’d have to teach him how! (In fact it looks like he’s only got it with the tip of one finger… or maybe it’s just bustled. I’m not sure but I saved the picture with that idea in mind.)

This option is quite different, but would require a more separate train in quite a light fabric.

Even if you don’t think you’ll use it, I would definitely recommend getting a bustle and / or wrist loop added just in case. By the time 11pm rolls around and you’re starting to get tired, the last thing you’re going to want to do is keep an eye on your train to make sure you and your guests aren’t tripping over it. You’ll be having too much fun to worry about stuff like that!
