- Wedding: December 2016
Hey everyone! Getting marrid NYE this year. Everything has been pretty smooth so far, and my favorite part by far has been finding my wedding dress. I fell in love with Hayley Paige Megan Gown (her sister wore this as a bridesmaid dress in HP wedding). What everyone failed to tell me was that this is an extremely difficult dress to bustle, and there really is no attractive way to do it. I hate it. To me, it completely compromises the look of the dress. The issue is that although the bustle is really only up for dancing, I could probably get over that part…but when it’s not bustled, there are 11 hooks that, to me stand out like a sore thumb, throughout the skirt. The seamstress then tried putting it the hooks at the waist, and sewing thread into the skirt for the loops. It’s all terrible. The only other option is an under bustle, which woudl require about 15 ribbons. The salon I got the dress at is fairly close with HP and they’ve sent her a note, but in the meantime I have been obsessively searching for other HP brides with a bustle. I haven’t been able to find ANY REAL BRIDES in the Megan gown. Even the Dani gown has a very similar bottom.
So this is my desperate plea / hope to find ANY Hayley Paige Megan brides out there!!! I am so close to just cutting the train, as much as I don’t want to, it is a better option to me than the bustles.
