Train or no train?

Recommended Posts

Your dress isn't too formal for the beach. You're the bride and you get to decide what makes you feel wonderful! And that goes for deciding whether to have a train or not. I haven't worn mine yet, but I'm pretty sure that I won't care if it drags in the sand or else I will just bustle it!

I was also worried about a long train being too heavy and a PITA on the beach so I had it shortened to like a 1-2 foot long train and I really liked that. Was just enough to drag a little when I walked down the aisle and also to take some cute pictures from the back (i.e. flowers on the train, etc)

 

I personally am not a big fan of bustles, but it's totally up to you whether you like the look or not! Some dresses look more natural bustled than others.

Thanks for all the advice everyone :)

Sunbride - I love your dress and your pictures.. You look so beautiful.. And I think that length train will be perfect :) Is yours "sweep train" or shorter?? What material is your dress? I really love your dress :)

Can I ask you also what material is your husband's suit? It goes really well..

My dress is very plain and doesn't have a train and just recently I decided I wanted one....so I went shopping and ended up with a big puffy dress with a train that I now think is too big. So I'm stuck again. I think I will wear my original dress for the ceremony and reception because it's very light and sooo comfortable, and then wear the big heavy one for my TTD...at least I'll look like a bride in some of the pictures...

 

I understand what you mean about "not looking like a bride." I would recommend getting a short train and that way you will FEEL like a bride...you can always bustle it! In the end you have to be comfortable and I'm sure it will be beautiful either way! Good luck :)

I was worried about a train too but after thinking about it I realized that this is pretty much the 1 and only time I can get away with a long train. My dress is casablanca 1900 so the train is all lace and will get covered in sand but I am going for the more casual vibe so no big deal. If your still confused at least meet in the middle with a short train.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
