My wedding is THIS SATURDAY!! It looks like there is going to be minimal snow. We are taking our photos before the ceremony and I’m afraid that if my train is down it might get muddy or dirty!
So should I bustle the trian up for photos and let it down for the ceremony and only a few pictures with Fiance and me after the ceremony? If I do that however, I won’t get that beautiful bridal shot with the train and hte bridal party…
Here’s some pics of my dress:

I shoudl also mention that all of our photos will be outside, however it’s at a pioneer village and there are boardwalks all around the village.

Don’t bustle it, but have your bridesmaids carry it between pictures, rather than letting it drag.

couldn’t you unbustle it for the pics with your bridal party? Or do that pic first?
I love your dress so much!

I didn’t bustle mine and just carried it around when we were outside and there was dirt. It was fine!

I can’t really take it up and put it down too much as the mustle has like 36 snaps and hooks, lol. I think my bridesmaids would hate me if I made them put it up and then take it down a number of times.
Did you of you use a white sheet or anything under your dress? I’m just worried it’s going to be really wet on the ground.

Take a sheet/tarp for the ground and then tuck it under your train. Then your dress wont get dirty/wet and you can have the train down! Just make sure some one carries your train while you pick up your skirt.

Don’t bustle it – have your BM’s/DH carry the train while you’re walking.
The last wedding I was in the photographer had a sheet to spread out if it was particularly dirty (something you could think of bringing), and they’ll probably be easily able to photoshop out any small bits of dirt that get on it anways. It’s a BEAUTIFUL dress and if I were you I would want pictures showing the full train!

@asscherlover: Agreed! don’t bustle it.. it’s too gorgeous to do that but do make sure your Bridesmaid or Best Man carry it! 🙂

I don’t really have much advice regarding the “to b. or not to b.” debate. However, I wanted to tell you that I think your dress is absolutely stunning. I especially love how it looks bustled and with the lace coverup. Would you mind sharing the style of either?
PS: Happy wedding! I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous in all the photos no matter what you decide.

wow I LOVE your dress. so pretty. and I love the lace overlay you have on top of it too. So pretty! I say leave the bustle down and just be careful and have your bridesmaids carry it 🙂
But if you got some afterwards with it down it would still be nice!
