I didn’t bustle my dress but did have a wrist loop (that I didn’t use). I ran barefoot through a field and Darling Husband and my Dad twirled me aeound the dancefloor. A few grass stains but nothing out of the ordinary. The cleaner (a national one in the UK) said they’d rarely seen a dress so clean! I didn’t personally find it a problem  🙂

I also had a small train in a light fabric (tulle) and I didn’t bother to bustle it. It didn’t get ruined and I was able to dance fine, and dry cleaning took care of the stains from our outdoor ceremony and photos.

Could you have a seamstress cut off the train? If it’s a more casual wedding, it would still look like a wedding dress!

I think the wrist loop would work the best with this type of fabric like the previous Bees did.

I’d talk to the seamstress who is doing your alterations.  I didn’t really care about a train and TBH because the samples were so long I had no idea my dress even had one until my dress came in!  I was worried a bustle would look odd since the my dress has a really light, flowy tulle.


(Not me)

But we played around with different bustle types until we found the one I liked the best.  Though I agree with a PP, this looks like a good candidate for a wrist loop.
