A wrist loop will get in the way during the reception (especially if you plan on dancing all night) and by the sounds of it would put a strain on your wrist and arm.  I think your best bet would be to try and have it bustled.

If your train is too heavy to bustle, its definitely too heavy to have on your wrist all night!  I think you should look at other alterations places and get another opinion.  My dress weighed 20lbs and had 12 points for a french bustle and it still got bustled!  I would definitely go with the bustle, it may be a bit of extra weight on your back and shoulders, but to me thats better than carrying on my wrist all night.

I have a silk satin dress that’s pretty heavy too (lots of material on the train), but my seamstress easily put in a 10-point French bustle.  Can you post a picture of your train so we can get a better idea?

I don’t think that your material is necessarily too heavy to bustle.  I think it’s more along the lines of she can put in a bustle but it may be too difficult to gather for someone who’s not experienced with them. 

My dress is also very heavy matieral and there better be a bustle on it because I’m not trying to pump up one of my pecks and have one breast larger than the other LMAO. 

Wedding dresses are heavy in general.
