    I found a dress I like but it has a long train - they said I can either get it shortened or have no train at all - and now I have no idea. I can't really see the dress with both options obviously and I'm having a hard time visualizing it.
    I don't really get the point of trains and think I'd be okay without one, but I want to look like a bride and can't decide if having at least a short train makes it a wedding dress..
    Did you girls have trains on your dress? If so, did it drag up sand as you walk on the beach??
    I think I'm leaning toward no train or a very short one, but I don't know...
    None of my friends have had a beach wedding so they don't know either - please help :)

      I thought I'd try to post a link to the dress with train and maybe that'll help :)
      One last question - my friend says this is too formal for the beach - I didn't think it was that formal so I could use another opinion :)

        My dress has no train and now I kind of wish it had a train, just a little one.

          I think the dress will look beautiful either way though I know that doesn't help much. My dress has quite the train but for a Vegas wedding I'm not worried about sand. If the train gives you a more bridal feel, go for a small one.

          As far is it being "not beachy" or too formal...If you love the dress and feel amazing in it, buy it! I think it's a gorgeous dress! I have seen some "formal" gowns in BDW girls photos and I think the contrast gives the photos a really cool look.

            My dress has tool at the bottom I am going to cut all the dress material out so my train is only tool so it will be really light and I will only have a small bustle. I have to say I like the train.

              I went no train. I saved a lot of money as the dress was cheaper, plus I feel like I will be dragging beach sand around the place with a train. It is really what you feel more comfortable with, but for me, I decided it would be a hassle.

                After much debate, I am having my train cut off so that the entire dress is the same length the whole way around.

                  I didn't want a train at first (due to being on beach with my dress on..aka sand fleas) but once I put my dress on with the train I decided to keep it. I feel its part of being a bride (in my eyes). I just had them do a bustle so I could put it up for dancing and such.

                    So Ladies,

                    I am a self proclaimed photowhore - and love seeing pics, I have been away for a while but am back and will be here steady until our wedding day which is coming up very quickly,

                    I went for my first fitting and here are some of the pics, the downside of this is that at the first fitting I found out that my dress was WAY too big, and over four inches needs to be taken in all around. :S scary....

                    The other decision that had to be made was what to do with the train, bustle it - or cut it off....

                    Well... my first fitting was on the eleventh of November, and my second was on December 6, sadly I do not have any photos of the second fitting - but did decide to CHOP off the train... I just don`t love it, nor do I foresee fluffing the train and tossing it in the sand for my beach wedding.

                    I thought I`d share, as I am in a fantastic mood this afternoon.

                    xoxo A.
