What way are you guys putting up train.? Are you putting a little button or something on back where you tie up/put up the train on the outer side of the dress or are you putting it up inside the dress like a bustle effect?

Outside I think!

Mine had a button on the outside (just under my bum :compress ) but I also had it pinned with 2 safety pins from underneath because with the beading on the dress there was quite a lot of weight on one little button so the lady in the shop suggested supporting it with the pins.

Mine went up like a bustle, I loved it! But yeah, like the other girls have said, I would definitly recommend bringing some very large safety pins/nappy pins! My bustle was held up with a few big poppers and the bustle was too heavy for the poppers so it was constantly falling down-very annoying O:| Even if you're getting a loop or a button to hold yours up, I'd bring a few pins anyway-just in case!

Sorry to sound thick but do most dresses have a loop and button on them anyway? I never thought to check mine. My train isn't too long anyway so hopefully won't bother me too much. I guess I can pin it up if there's no loop and button.

Mine had nothing! The seamstress who was doing the alterations to mine did the bustle for me.

Thanks, I know I'll need alterations done anyway so I'll ask then if there isn't already something there.

My train was quite long so they added ribbons underneath so it could be tied up. It worked great it stayed up all night
