Many brides choose to Bustle their wedding gown after the wedding ceremony to move freely in the reception, dance and dine without the dress getting ruined. Bustling is picking the train of a wedding dress off the floor and securing it to the dress so that it does not drag along dirty floors.

The bride should wear her wedding dress and shoes before the ceremony to be able to design a bustle to an appropriate length. Paint a small fabric hook with white nail polish so that it blends in when sewed to the wedding dress. Pick the center of the dress’ train with fingers and sew the painted fabric hook to the dress with woven beaded cord to render strength to the hook. Let the bride try on the dress. Ask one of the bridesmaids to practice picking up the train and attaching it to the fabric hook. Make any necessary adjustments.
