If you want to dance then yes.  Either you or a guest may be tripping over a train.

Even with a small train I would do a bustle. It cost $25 to get mine done and then I didn’t have to worry about it all night.

My wedding dress has a long dramatic train and I’m not doing a bustle what I’m doing instead is having a wrist loop instead

 I really didn’t want to bustle but my seamstress convinced me to do a super simple one.  It was just one button and it was great because I could put it up or take it down throughout the night.  I also had a loop which I used when walking around to take pictures before the ceremony but I wouldn’t have wanted to use that while dancing.  Even with the bustle there were people stepping on my dress (and it was just a simple a-line) so I’d imagine even if you have a short train people will accidently step on it on the dance floor.

I hate the way my dress looked bustled (tiny train) but my seamstress convinced me to add one so people wouldn’t trip on it all night. I decided to let her do it, and figured I just wouldn’t use it unless I had to.

My brand new husband stepped on my hem ten minutes after the ceremony ended and left a 10″ tear 😑 

Needless to say, I used the bustle for the rest of the night.
