A couple of months until the wedding, but I’ve got my bustle ready. I love my train so I’m wondering if it’ll be possible to actually not bustle, and just call the money spent on it a loss  I’m sure it’s not realistic because someone is bound to step on that long train. Another bee has the same dress as mine and her bustle is is so beautiful and different. It’s amazing how different the look can be with a different style bustle.

Mine was a simple one point bustle. It had a small loop that I hooked over my lowest button, but I forgot to take into account the fact that my husband and I are much bigger dancers than most couples, and my boogying the night away was going to be tough on that bustle. It made it through our first dance, father daughter dance, and about two songs in before that button popped off somehere during me jumping up and down for “Shout!”. I didn’t really care though. I just danced with my train in my hand for the rest of the night. So if you are a strong dancer, make sure to take that into account when choosing your bustle style. 

Begining of the boogie-ing:

LAs-623

Oppa is Gangnam style (I also kicked off my shoes right after our after-ceremony pictures and danced the night away barefoot):

LAs-670

bridetobeinCLE:  My dress in general was so heavy. Someone took a random photo of me just after dinner and there are red marks on my skin where the straps were! But I loved the dress and the train so much 🙂 My seamstress was magic! She has lots of experience working on “difficult” dresses the lady at the dress shop told me. And she really did a lovely job!

Later in the evening, when the dancing got underway, I changed into the David’s Bridal Swiss Dots chiffon dress. It was the best decision I made – getting a second dress.

This has been super helpful, commenting to follow.  I’m going in for my first alterations appointment tonight!!!!  I’m not sure what type of bustle to go with for my dress, but from looking at everyone’s gorgeous dresses, it seems like a 3 point might be a nice way to go.

I am sharing mine because I had such a hard time deciding how I wanted it!

First the train

On this next one the dress is a little all over the place (at the end of the night!) but it still gives an idea how it floated over the ground
