Bustle, loop or nothing??
Hello lovely ladies,
My wedding is 2.5 weeks away (arrrgggghhhhhh) and my seamstresses told me very early on that my dress couldn't be bustled because it has a few layers of incredibly detailed lace which apparently won't bustle up, but they also said a loop wouldn't work because it'll have to go on the top layer (which is a fairly long train) and you'd be able to see it. I sort of just accepted this, but at my penultimate fitting last week I suddenly realised how bloody annoying it could be having heavy train to carry over my arm all night (which is what they're saying I'll have to do). I have really liked the work they've done, and I do rate them as seamstresses, but the friends I've mentioned this to have all said that they aren't sure they're right about this.
Have any of you had a similar situation, and what did you decide?
It's really playing on my mind because I'm due to have the final fitting and collect the dress next wednesday, so I need to let them know ASAP if want them to try some type of bustling or loop.
In case it helps, this is the dress...but the train is slightly longer on me because I'm only 5'2".
Huge thanks in advance for your advice!
