Hey everyone, I just needed opinions please. I can’t decide if I should bustle my dress for the reception or not. It has a bit of a train so I need to at least use the wrist strap to hold it up, but I’m not sure if that is a good idea or not. The fabric is kind of intricate so I’m not sure if a bustle would look right. Here are a couple of pictures of my dress (sorry they’re so big!):

Ask a seamstress to show you what the bustle would look like. I had a bustle that was perfect until someone stepped on it and it broke…after that my dress was SO ANNOYING. It will be in your way.

@MattandKristin: Definitely bustle! You will not want your beautiful dress dragging and getting all nasty.

Definitely bustle the dress! I had mine bustled and I still found people were stepping on it sometimes, so I can’t imagine what they would have done if I had been walking around with a train. It’s also much easier to move and dance with the dress after it’s bustled :).

I vote no bustle, I like the look of the wrist strap (as long as it actually is a wrist-strap and not just a strap that looks like the ones on the insides of new shirts that are used for hanging). I don’t plan on bustling my dress (pieces of tulle, 30’s style, very very hard to bustle), I don’t really like the look of bustles it looks like bubbled fabric on peoples’ butts, I’ve never really seen one I liked, but that’s just my opinion.

I say bustle. Do you really want people stepping on it on the dance floor?!
