I always think the bustling of the gown is a great and funny occasion at weddings. Actually, and although I never mind, I find myself bustling the gown more often than really makes sense. (I am not a “pro”). Many bustles are complicated to figure out, and I have a good feeling that it always seems much easier when your seamstress is showing you with her deft fingers how to do it. So I suggest you bring to your fittings someone who the seamstress can really teach to bustle the gown. And then maybe you two can practice again, when you are alone, and it is not your wedding day. Because it always seems like it’s awfully hard, on the wedding day, for the bride to stand still and be bustled … Much less to do it several times if the bustling comes undone.
