    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?!
