I’m getting married in three weeks and yesterday I picked up my dress from alterations after a bustle was added. I’m not in love with the way the bustle looks but understand it’s supposed to be functional and most don’t love them. But what I’m upset about is the button choice they used. My dress is super simple satin fit and flare and they put these five big plastic buttons on the back of it to hold the bustle. I’m so worried this will look horrible and cheap when the dress is not bustled as I walk down the aisle. The alterations place assured me this was standard… I’m not sure what I was expecting, perhaps something in a satin that matched the dress?
See button pictures below and well as the back of my full un-bustled dress for reference. Has anyone else had experiences with buttons like this for an over bustle? Any better ideas for buttons? Or am I over thinking something no one will notice?
