If your wedding dress even has the smallest train it may be worth having a bustle added to it. Dance floors are crowded and you don’t want anyone stepping on it, which could tear your skirt or cause you to trip and fall.
Talk to your seamstress about your bustle options and then at your final fitting have one of your bridesmaids come with you to learn how to bustle your dress.
Do not ask your mom to tie your bustle even if she offers it. Mom is probably in a formal dress and it won’t be so easy for her to get on her knees to tie or button the inside of your skirt.
Remember to add safety pins to your wedding day emergency kit in case your bustle rips. You can use the safety pins to pin the bustle back together.
