knc2014:  If you look under the skirt of the dress, there’s a lil strap in there that’s wristlet size and that works to hold the train up. I’m just using that. Try it out. I might be able to post pics later, but it’s something like Bella’s dress in twilight Only the Dakota strap is under the dress.

ledercarolyn:  I had to see a great seamstress in NYC for other alterations and she helped me to realize that the wristlet idea just doesn’t work for a dress with such a long train and so many layers like the Dakota. She put in a 5 point bustle, all w buttons and double loops (so if someone steps on it and breaks a loop, there’s always a backup loop AND then there’s 4 other points also holding up the material). It looks great and really distributes all that train well. I’ll post pics when I can.

just got married in the Enzoani dakota – RK bridal did the alterations – i only had a 3 point butsle and 2 loops it just didnt hold and wasnt high enough i realized the day of the wedding unfortunately and spent (wasted)  a portion of my night w/ my girls pinning it in the bathroom and breaking many safety pins and then just holding it up the rest of the night – the bottom is shredded and everyone’s heels kept getting stuck in it… ALSO they did not tell me you have to take the WHOLE dress off to go to the bathroom if i would have known these things i would have never even spent the $3k+++ on the dress and alterations UGH
