Train or no train?

Recommended Posts

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 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.

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 :)

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
