Bustling your Wedding Dress!?!

I went for my first fitting today, and the Seamstress mentioned "Bustling the Train" after the Ceremony. She was surprised to find out that I hadn't thought about the idea until she said something.

~What does everyone think? Have you or planning on bustling your train after the wedding?~~

I am having an indoor casino wedding, so going outside would be a minimum to taking pictures on the dock or possibly in the parking lot next to my car. I am staying in the casino the night before and of the wedding.

Please help!!!!

Thank you

  • Bustling is suggested so through out the night people are not stepping on your train, as well as making it easier to move around in as well as dance.

    I would suggest you get it done. The type you get should work with your style of dress and your seamstress can show you several.

  • I would absolutely get a bustle. You can also get a wrist strap, but they are a hassle and get in the way of hugging people. Without a bustle, your dress is more likely to get stepped on, will get dirtier and possibly torn.

  • I too would recommend a bustle... you don't want to be dragging that train around all night.

    Also, it just depends on the dress for which bustle you choose.  The seamstress can usually give you an idea of what the American and French look like.  Some dresses look better with the French, others the American.

  • Bustling will be a must for me. I don't want people stepping on (and possibly ripping) my beautiful dress. If your dress is simple enough, sometimes it only takes a one point bustle. If the dress is full or more intricate it might take more points. 

    Ask your seamstress what she recommends in terms of French or American. If you can give us a picture of the back of your dress (even if it is a vendor picture) we might be able to tell you which will work best.

  • Of course I bustled my dress.  It's not about going outside, it's about being able to walk around without people stepping on your long ass dress :-)

    I prefer American bustles.

    My dress had a 13 point French bustle and I loved it.

  • As a bride and BM, I prefer French bustles.  Once they are tied, there isn't much else to do to it.  The American ones can come undone if the hook and eyes become unhooked and will need to be rehooked.  I had to use a butterknife on a friend's dress to try and permanently close the hooks and eyes from her American bustle.

  • Your seamstress can really show you different styles and how it will hang.  You could probably just do a one point bustle with that dress but you might like the "french" bustle better. 

    Here is a link that shows all sorts of different bustles, so you can get an idea of what the seamstress might be talking about when she uses different words for different styles.

  • 100, bustle it. There's a reason modern clothing doesn't have trains. They're annoying, trip you, get stepped on, get stained, and make going to the bathroom without a support group an impossibility. That being said, I looove how they look, and couldn't help but to get a monster train. If I hadn't gotten a french bustle, I might have died of frustration at my reception.

    I bustled my dress. It saved my from having people not being able to step on it. Also, by bustling the train and dress hem will not get as dirty.
