WOW!  I’m sure your bustle is going to look gorgeous!  I only had 10 bustle points…and it was complicated enough for my bridesmaids.

I recommend (if your seamstress isn’t already doing it) that your seamstress keep all the bustle strings tied (loosely) until it is time to lift up your skirt and tighten all of them to create the bustle.  It made it SOOO much easier for my BM’s to bustle my gown because all the bustle points were already matched up with their corresponding hooks = NO guess work!  Also, I would definitely do a trial-run with 2 of your BM’s (in case one is not around at the time…)

Good luck and congrats on a beautiful bustle!

Wow, make sure your BMs know what they’re doing in advance. You don’t wanna spend the whole reception bustling. I’m sure the end result is gorgeous, though. πŸ™‚

omg! how will they find them all?! lol. make sure they learn how to do it. Maybe a few times…and time them? lol. I did my friend’s bustle at her wedding, but it wasn’t exactly rocket science–it was just a one tie bustle. that dress is really gorgeous!
