Wedding Dress Bustle

Wedding Dress Bustle

I'm getting married in Oct. and my mom and I have done most of the alternations to my dress- and so far they love fabulous! My question is about bustling. ANy one have any tips about how to correctly bustle a wedding dress?
Picture of the dress: http://www.davidsbridal.com/bridal_g...8&prodgroup=10

The train has almost the same embroidery as the bottom front part of the dress but just more of it. I want the embroidery to be the centerpiece of the bustle wan to bustle the dress so it looks like a triangle in the back- therefore framing the embroidery. Any suggestions on how that would be done the best?

Should I put two matching buttons in the back of the dress (where I want the top of the bustle to be) and two loops just above the embroidery to hook to the buttons?

Hope this wasn't to confusing... I think I confused myself..

I don't have any idea, but I just wanted to say that the dress is gorgeous!

Thank you! I fell in love w/ the dress but it was really out of my price range. But Ebay saved the day!! only $72.00!!!!

They do usually just place buttons at the waistline and then pull the skirt up. Maybe you can find a book at the library with instructions?? Good luck!

This book has great pictures on how actually to do the bustle both under and over styles. Most libraries have it if you don't want to buy it.
