Do you have a side shot? If it’s not too long or in your way you really don’t need to bustle it

Gorgeous dress!  (From the back at least!)  Love the low V in the back.  My dress has that too. 🙂

I definitely don’t think it’s a good idea to go without a bustle.  Your dress is likely to get stepped on or torn, or (worse) you or your new husband could trip on it.  There are ways to do a nice bustle on an asymmetrical dress.   I think there’s at least one pic on this thread:


And check this out (bees call it the “Nacho bustle” after the bride who showed how to do it):

YOU wont trip on it but your guests WILL step on it if you don’t. I think a french bustle might look really pretty on that dress but in the end it is what you see when you go to the tailor. I thought I wanted one style but once I saw it I realized another was 10000% what I needed!

I’m wondering if it needs a double bustle…had no idea about that until I had my alt appointment and they bustled the underskirt of tulle & satin, and then did a separate bustle for the overskirt. This is super-interesting since it’s asymmetrical. Can’t wait for your update 🙂
