Just wondering – when did you (or will you) bustle your dress – right after the ceremony and before pictures or after pictures? I have a very long and fabulous royal train on my dress, and I don’t know if should bustle it before or after my outside family pictures. Thoughts/suggestions? If I don’t bustle it until after the pictures, have any of you had success with putting a white sheet under the train to keep it clean?

I bustled mine right after the family pictures, but I’m not sure if that’s the “proper” time or not. It probably doesn’t matter either way.

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
We’re doing our formal shots before the ceremony, so I hope we’ll bustle up right after the ceremony!

We did photos before the wedding and I bustled my dress, because I was worried about getting stuff in the train and hem (dirt, grass, etc). However, in looking at the photos, I wish I had taken more with the train down, just so I had more pics of it.

I didn’t bustle mine until after all of our pictures were taken (bustled right before our entrance into the reception). I like that we got a lot of pictures with my train laid out. However, my train was also super light, so if you have a big, heavy train or a complicated bustle, you might want to do it before all of the pictures just for convenience’s sake.
