When you try it on at the salon ask how they would bustle it. They probably have an easy bustle that could be added in alterations so one of your attendants hooks it up for the reception.

I think most people bustle their dress for their reception so they can move about without having to worry about people stepping on their train etc. I think most people have their bustle put in when they’re having their dress fitted? I’m not 100% sure though, cos my dress is tea length and I haven’t had to worry about any of that! 🙂

Check with the alterations and see what they can do. There are many bustles that don’t “poof it all up”.

The bustle really won’t “poof it all up” at all.  Just ask someone in the bridal salon to hold up the train as it would be bustled so that you can get a feel for what it would look like.  But with a short, lace train – you won’t have any bulk / poof at all!

You can probably do a very small, low bustle that wouldn’t take away from the sleekness of the dress. Look into it before you give it up; it’s lovely!

The bustle is usually what people do for this. My dress, however ended up not getting bustled for the Reception. It was going to be very pretty and simple.

Things were going so quickly, there was no time. So, my cathedral length train was out the entire night! I had no problems, except that hubby stepped on it a few times. None of the guests did though.

@sugar magnolia: A bustle does not have to add “poof” at all. It can lay very flat and just look like the train got shortened up to the length of the dress.

@sugar magnolia: Haha I can see why you’d want to steer clear of the bustles from the 1800s, but these are VERY different bustles. Mainly just a way to make a dress with a train because a dress without a train without cutting any fabric.

LOL your dress won’t be puffy with that train.

Most dresses get bustled if they have a train.
