To bustle or not to bustle?

Recommended Posts

I say get the bustle done...and then you can decide the day of how you feel. But you want to have the option, the worst would be getting there and realizing that its getting very dirty and stepped on tons and then NOT being able to bustle it!

I would get the bustle done. My dress is the same length roughly as yours and it cost me $39 for a bustle. You can leave it down for the ceremony and pics, but I would put it up after that for sure so you don't trip on it or have someone step on it.

I would say bustle only because you don't want while you are dancing someone stepping on it, or like on one episode of say yes to the dress when a BM stepped on the bride's dress and it ripped. You'll move around easier in it while its bustled and like the other ladies said it doesn't take long to do.

Your Dress is GORGEOUS!!! I would recommend having them put a bustle on it, It shouldnt cost too much and can help protect your dress later after the ceremony, plus you dont have to worry about people stepping on it or getting the train dirty :), The PLUS side is that if you do have them bustle it, you can decide at the wedding if you want it up or down :). I love my dress bustled!!! I went with a French bustle, because my dress has pick-ups, Its takes about 3 minutes to tie all 5 ribbons, and the back of the dress looks nice and shows off the pick-ups :).

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
