To bustle or not to bustle?

Recommended Posts

So I got my dress and my wedding is about two months away. Yesterday, someone asked me if I was going to bustle the dress...

Am I gonna what? So now my question is, should I bustle this dress? How much does that cost? How long will it take? Any advice? Thanks!

uhmmm, I dont think the train is too long, and a bustle might just make it look frumpy. ask them to pin it so you can get an idea on what it looks like

ooh I love your dress!

 

My train is going to be about the length of yours and I'm going to make sure I can bustle it. I don't want to worry about dragging it around all night. Just ask the dress shop or your seamstress to show you what it will look like bustled so you can get an idea. As long as it's altered to have the option of bustling it, you can decide at any time to bustle or not!

Love your dress! I def think you should get a bustle.. Its always an option. but you def. do not want your dress dragging, or people stepping on it. I would do it. Its pretty simple to have done!

 

Good Luck!

My daughter has this exact dress for her wedding next week and we can bustle it. They did a great job and it is gorgeous. We have to button up the under layer first and then the lace layer. We did have a layer of the netting taken out too. Makes it weigh less.

thanks for the input. I tried my dress on again in my apt. and kept catching it everywhere and I am definitely not the most graceful person, so I would at least like to have the option of adding a bustle. Good to know that its not too complicated!

I'd say bustle..but make sure your maid is with you at your fitting so they get shown how to do it!

 

Mine couldn't make ANY of my fittings, and so on the day, she didn't know how to put it up, and it basically just got tied up by our photographer who tried her best god love her, she saved me soo many times on the day!

If you want to be able to move freely without someone holding your train the whole night -get a bussle! Buttt..then again.. I got my train stepped on and it ripped the bussle out 3 different times throughout my reception sad.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
