This is my dress. I have no idea what kind of bustle to get for it! I had no idea I’d even need one until I figured out that I wouldn’t really want to sit in that long of a dress (I’m not having dancing at my wedding, lol). Can you help me by linking me pictures of pretty bustles that you feel would work well for this dress? The dress is chiffon and has a lot of gorgeous 3D flower details/embroidery scattered on it. My wedding is going to be an outdoor wedding, in a gorgeous redwood grove. 🙂 And it has an enchanted forest sort of theme (think Nordrassil — http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/2143/nordrassil.jpg) — magical foresty, not so much mystical/faerie. I wouldn’t be averse to something whimsical and pretty, but still very flowy and light and ethereal.
(I have no idea if any of this is even possible with a dress. 😉
I’ve looked at some and I do like the look of some French bustles but my fiance is unsure about poofyness. As am I. And I am unsure of how they would look on the dress. But I am rather lost/overwhelmed by all the options out there. I am aware that French bustles would make it so I don’t have to hide a lot of the details of the dress… but I didn’t buy a dress with a bustle already in the design (I tried and mostly liked the AA Tiana dress) because that look slightly bugged me. But I Googled and found one of you girls’ dress bustle and I liked it… http://pics.gallery.weddingbee.com/2045.P1040714.JPG.resize
If it is important, I’m kinda short (5’3″) and small.
In addition, I’m having another set of photos taken a few days after the ceremony — does anyone have any advice for how to make sure my dress doesn’t get really wrinkled up? Or is there just no way to prevent it for when the train is let out again for pictures? If so, does anyone have any ideas for how I can quickly (and cheaply) get things smoothed out again? 🙂
Thanks so much for all your help!
