Wedding Gown Bustle Glossary

When selecting your wedding gown, brides pay close attention to the length of the train.  But when it comes to dancing the night away at the reception, how do you plan to bustle all that delicate fabric?  Below are four options for "picking up" that gorgeous wedding gown train.

Pick-Up Bustle:
The simplest bustle style that typically requires one button or eyelet to create a slight lift

American Bustle:
This bustle is created by raising and securing the train to the waistline of the gown

French Bustle:
This underneath-style bustle is created by typing a series of ribbons underneath the gown's train to create a fold

Tufted Bustle:
This bustle is ideal for gowns with pick-ups as the bustle is designed to blend the train within those pick-ups.

Until next time...WEDologize!
