    That dress looks AMAZING on you!! I really like how that bustle compliments your dress. I wasn't a big fan of the french bustle but my dress looked best with that bustle over the rest and I loved it after that.

    I have to say though, I had eight bustles put into mine and it was sooo difficult for my mom and friends to remember how to tie everything up properly the day of the wedding. I think we got most of them tied, but it looked nothing like it did at the bridal shop. Either way, it doesn't really matter, no one noticed. So, go with what you want but your dress really does look beautiful with that bustle.

      I love your dress it is gorgeous, and I like the bustle too, but if you are not in love with it, then have her change it!

        Thank you ladies so much! I feel so much better now about the bustle. The other option which the sales lady showed me was one point under with tiers but I understand what the seamstress and all of you mentioned is that if I don't do french it will cover up all of the beautiful beadwork which I would prefer to showcase. Also, they would have to add hooks to the outside of my dress which was why I said to try the French instead.

        She is putting 12 ties under it. She said she would color code them and to always tie right to left and middle one last. I am hoping it is not that difficult! I can wait to see it in 2 weeks at my final fitting!
