Should I get the train of my dress cut??
Posted 09 August 2009 - 11:25 PM
I am in the dilema if I should alter my dress and cut the train. I was looking for a more simple dress more appropriate for the beach, but when I saw this one and tried it on, I fell in love with it! it didn't need any altarations at all! It is size 4 and it fits perfectly.
The only problem is that the train is a bit too long. The dress feels pretty light though, but now I think I would look silly wearing this fancy dress at the beach...so I need some opinions on weather to cut the train or not
Here is the link: the picture doesn't really show how long it is, but it's all I got

I wanted to cut my whole train off as well, but they showed me why it'll kill the whole look of my dress, due to the detail on the back. So I would definitely check with an experienced seamstress to make sure it will still work with yours.

I say if you love the dress the way it is, then keep it! It's your day and you are only going to do this once. I think your dress is absolutely GORGEOUS the way it is!
Just know that whatever you decide to do, you will be stunning!

I debated the same thing.
This was the bustle the seamstress offered on my first fitting
On the actual day - with the train removed completely
Removing the train was the right decision for me.
I might add that this alteration WAS NOT CHEAP!!!!!! Removing the train cost over $200. Bustling was going to cost $50... At the end of the day DH said "Amarillis, you have been known to spend more than than that on a bottle of wine, and you are skimping on your wedding dress?!?" Immeadiately after, I called the seamstress and told her to cut it off!!
