Baby Got Bustle!

by Jenny Bryde 25. August 2015 00:36


Who knew that throughout time there's been an affinity for large derrieres?  The love of a large booty spans back centuries in the form of the bustle which is often a part of today's wedding dresses.  

You have a beautiful dress that trails delicately down the aisle as you prepare to say your vows, but when you want to get your dance on at the reception, something needs to be done with that monster.  

Through a complex series of ties, buttons, hooks, and loops (and a willing participant to be your bustle buddy), you'll be able to pin up the back of your dress so that it doesn't get trashed.  Below are a few great resources for bustle how to's.  I suggest that those who have a bustle print off or book mark a set of directions and have them handy in their wedding tool kits ready to go for when it's time to get the party started!

If you're confused on which type of bustle you have, ask your bridal salon or seamstress.  They can give you a push in the right direction!

Your dress, veil, rings, and shoes are major stakeholders in your wedding ensemble, but don't stop there.  Statement bracelets are a big thing now, and it appears that the bigger the better!  If you want to stick with something delicate and reserved, that's fine, but many brides are turning to a bold look for their wrists.  Here are some of my favorites that I've found:
