If you don’t want to have a train, I would probably buy a dress without a train, instead of just bustling it up for the entire wedding.  I had an outdoor wedding on a patio and had the train down for the ceremony and then bustled it for after the ceremony.  I also bustled it for our first look since we walked around in the grass and dirt.

I actually left my dress bustled for the whole wedding because I liked how it looked better

Plus then we didn’t have to fool with it later 🙂

I loved not having to think about it the whole time

Plus the dress had prettier dimensions with the bustling!

Ive attached pictures for you too!

My dress bustling was included in the price of the dress — the alterations were not.  I needed my dress hemmed a little because I’m wearing kitten heels, so the whole thing was $100.  This is in Utah

I paid $100 for a bustle, hemming and taking out.

I am fully aware I got an amazing deal =)

I had mine unbustled for the ceremony, but I had a very short train. Then immediately after the ceremony my SIL and mom just came out of nowhere and bustled my dress while I was standing there hugging people and talking to people. Then I had it bustled all during pictures and all through the reception. It worked perfectly! Here are some pictures:

I would leave it down for the ceremony and bustle it afterward.  Mine has 7 buttons and was $70.  In ATL, that seems to be the going rate for bustles.  I’ve bustled a lot of wedding dresses (always a bridesmaid…), they were never so complicated that it was a big deal.  My second fitting is on the 18th, so I guess I’ll know then if mine is a major production.

We had a smaller outdoor wedding too, and I kept mine bustled all day. I had a few people tell me I should leave it undone for the ceremony because I paid for the train, but I really, really liked how the dress looked bustled, so that’s what I went with. No regrets here!
