What is a bustle?
A bustle is a way to gather the train of the gown off the floor. We offer several styles of bustles and these will be based on the style of your gown and length of the train. Typically, the gown is bustled after the ceremony and before the reception.
Can you cut the train off of a wedding gown, the store where I purchased it said they could only do a bustle?
Yes, we are able to cut the train. Most bridal shops decline this type of alteration and would rather have you pay for the bustle. We will pin your gown completely around the entire dress and make recommendations regarding the length based on the style of your gown.
