I bustled my dress right after the ceremony. Display it during the ceremony. Have your photographer take plenty of pictures of it. Then bustle it for the reception. Trying to dance with a cathedral train is just going to be a huge pain in the ass.

Maybe you could do a wrist loop instead of a bustle?

My bustle still allowed a little flow of a train, you don’t have to bustle it all the way, it’s not that hard to dance with a little train behind you sweeping the floor, just as long as the dress is not too long in the front! As it happens my dress was a little too long in the front causing me to step on it during dancing and occasionally “getting stuck” in the fabric but the back of the dress was no problem.

This is how mine was for dancing:

I bustled my dress right at the beginning of reception. My train was way too long and heavy and my husband would’ve tripped on it at least once during our first dance if I hadn’t tied it up.

Bustled. It was still long but less in the way.
