So I'm really bad at planning ahead so pretty much my whole wedding as just been thrown together in the past month or so. The wedding's on November 2. I'm ordering a beautiful ballgown with a full skirt from Azazie, and I'm super excited, but it's arriving sometime between October 18 and 23, which I realize is very last minute. It's being custom made to my measurements, so I expect very little necessary alterations (probably just the shoulder straps being adjusted if anything), but one thing I didn't think about was the bustle. I'm not thrilled with the idea of a bustle, but I also know that the skirt is HUGE and, having worn huge ballgowns before, I know it'll get in the way. How long do bustles normally take to add? If I don't add a bustle, is there another way to deal with the train? I won't be wearing it the entire reception, I am getting a second dress for when I eventually get too uncomfortable in the gown. (Nothing too fancy, something I could wear another time if I wanted.) I also don't dance and won't be having a dance floor so I'm not worried about that either. Should I just go without the bustle and save myself the headache?
