    I bustled my dress and it fell out every time someone brushed against me, or I brushed against something. Dress was huge and heavy though. You could do either, but do you want to be carrying it by the wrist loop?

    Would be helpful to see a picture of it caught up with a wrist loop.

    I think bustles are more practical. Once my dress was bustled I didn’t have to think about it and could dance the night away. A wrist loop probably would have been annoying. Your bustle looks nice and light and simple so I’d do that.

    I had both.  The wrist loop was useful when we were taking photos to pick the train up and carry it across grass or whatever, but it got heavy quickly and my wrist didn’t like it all that much after a while.  I was glad to bustle the dress (and ditch the veil!) once our reception started.  Your bustle looks great and also pretty secure – my train wasn’t quite as big as yours but the single point held it really well all night.

    You can do both. Bustle is more practical for a long reception.

    I vote bustle because I danced all night at my wedding. The wrist loop would have been too cumbersome.

    I had both. And I was glad I did because the damn bustle kept coming undone all night long.

    A friend of mine had a smaller train than you and opted for the wrist loop.  She hated it.  She said it was very heavy after a short time and every time she tried to hug somone she pulled the back of her dress up.  When it came time to picking my dress, she kept telling me to go for the bustle.
