The tulle will rip so easily if someone steps on it – I’d bustle it for that reason. Not only because you probably don’t want it ripped, but I can’t imagine how bad I’d feel if I, as a guest, accidently stepped on the bride’s dress and ripped it.

Beautiful Dress. Such a lovely long train, it would be a shame to crumple it up into layers at the back. In my opinion a bustle will ruin the look of your flowy and light looking dress.

sarahmazing89: My dress had a tulle skirt and a massive train and I bustled the hell out of that mofo. I was still getting caught on everything and getting trodden on bustled, but at least I wasn’t having to carry it!
I don’t know what my bustle’s called? It wasn’t French, I think it was something like a 12-point bustle – there were buttons on my dress and loops on the train to hook over.

sarahmazing89: Love your dress!!!!!! 🙂 I would definitely bustle it though as PP said to keep everyone from stepping or tripping on your dress. I did not have mine bustled for most of our pictures and people were tripping all over me, haha, I was afraid it would rip. The bottom of my dress was tulle as well, they did a 12/13 point bustle (i dont remember.. lol) Here is what mine looked like.

sarahmazing89: Get a bustle put in, worst case scenario you don’t use it.

I just had my first alterations appointment on Saturday, and I had definitely decided that I wanted a bustle so I wouldn’t be dragging my train at the reception! My seamstress showed me a 2 point bustle, which worked really well with all the beading and sown in lace details on my satin dress. The bustle will look something like this (not me in the pic!):
Not sure if something like this would work on tulle.

Love the dress! Getting it bustled will make it easy to dance without getting stepped on throughout the night.

sarahmazing89: I would definitely go with a bustle! Here’s a link to the different types of bustles you can get done: http://www.projectwedding.com/ideas/57220/bustles-for-your-gown
Once you go in for your fitting, your seamstress will be able to recommend one and be able to pin it so you can see how it will look.
Here’s my dress before bustling:
I don’t have a good photo of my bustle unfortunately, but you can see it from the side. I had a 7 point over bustle done.

Get it bustled…… I’ve worn more gowns I want to even remember and the train ALWAYS gets in the way and you spend all night getting stepped on. I learned my lesson. Now I get every dress bustled or I chop the train off. My wedding dress had a 12 point bustle and it looked great. The skirt was also tulle and it held up great.

My daughter’s dress was trampled on so many times and then finally ripped beyond repair. She lugged the train around for a few hours and then finally said “f this” and let it go.
on google images….
and then here’s a WB post from a couple of years ago.
Bustle for a Tulle Dress

beacause I havent seen a picture of an over bustle posted for you…this is an option as well and personal the one I like… they can do with as many points as you’d like it can be bustles with one button down the center or many like this picture all the way across …. I dont have a picture of my self but I will prob do one or three buttons havent decided … but I think your dress would look fantastic with this with its fluffy tulle

sarahmazing89: I would definitely bustle it. It’s going to be a hassle otherwise. I bustled mine and people STILL stepped all over it.

chronicwhimsy: Beat ya! I’ve got a 16 point bustle coming. I feel like I need to buy something extra for my BM’s. I’ve already apologized like 6 times to them! 😉
