Bustling your wedding dress will protect it from getting dirty and damaged after your ceremony. It also allows you to dance the night away without tripping over your train. You don’t want to haul around a huge lace train all night and have people step on it.

This presents an elegant “ballroom” look for full gowns and long trains. Average $100
