Hey Guys so I bought my dress a while back and it just came in. I haven’t been able to try it on yet but I have an appointment for next Friday. All the pictures I have seen have a really long train and I really love the way it looks but I am getting married at a summer camp and I am worried about dragging all that tulle through the grass and stuff. Also I am pretty much a master of dance but I am worried about it getting trampled on the dance floor… Do you think this can be bustled? Or should I buy a dancing dress?

Is there some reason you think it couldn’t be bustled? Like, is it an unusual fabric or something?

Hahah I have no idea about bustling but I love that you’re a master of dance!

Well it is tulle fabric and I feel like that would be one of the harder fabrics to bustle… And it’s natural waist and I just haven’t even seen any other natural waist ballgowns bustled without it being a thicker fabric…. I did some googling but I couldn’t get a definite answer.

If you get ribbon bustles, I think it should work just fine! Ask your seamstress for sure though! I work at a bridal salon and have never seen anyone have issues with bustles. But the snaps and hooks are NOT sturdy. you need several ribbons to keep it in place.

the bottom of my dress was a really soft delicate tule and I had mime bustled slightly (once at the reception). In saying that it came undone later in the night but by then I didn’t care anyway. I think dresses look better when they aren’t bustled and yours will be one of those. I think the important thing if you chose not too, try not to think about and worry about it too much. People WILL step on it, but you only plan on wearing it once I assume so it doesn’t really matter.

I don’t know if it can or not but if it can’t they have some clips that will pick it up. I plan on wearing heels and want to change into flats later and I am going to buy some. I am looking online for them and don’t know what they are called. The bridal store I went had them. I will have to ask them what they are but I am sure if you go in they would know what you are talking about,

You can bustle anything. Pretty sure even chaps could be bustled.

I tried on a dress with a tulle train and natural waist and the consultant told me that it could be bustled!

I work in a bridal shop that has a seamstress and I am telling you that is probably one of the easiest skirts to bustle. There are no ruffles, pleats, or lace to get in the way (all can still be bustled just harder). So no worries you might not get the traditional one-point bustle but they can do it I see dresses like yours bustled every other day.

Anything can be bustled if you find the right seamstress! Go get yourself bustled and show off them dancin skills! You have a beautiful dress too 🙂

Do you have any good reference pictures you could share for bustled tulle gowns? I haven’t been able to find many pictures of brides who’ve already worn my gown, but those that have seem to have opted to not bustle it – I even found a conversation of one bride saying that she didn’t like how it looked bustled and opted to have the train removed when the gown was hemmed. The dress (Hayley Paige 6412) admittedly has a lot of beading around the hips, so that makes it more complicated. I haven’t taken it in to get altered yet, but have been wondering about what options the seamstress could give me, or if I should be wary of what the final outcome will look like.

- Wedding: June 2015 - Mackinac Island, Michigan
Not sure if you have found a solution yet or not, but I also have the Allure 2716 and I had thought about the possibility of bustling my dress as well, since my wedding will be held outdoors. Not sure if I will or not…BUT…while searching for ideas a while ago on Pinterest, I came across a gallery and this bride is also wearing the 2716 and she has it bustled. Hopefully this helps! 🙂
