Should I get the train of my dress cut??

Recommended Posts

Hi

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 nothuh.gif

 

Here is the link: the picture doesn't really show how long it is, but it's all I got sad.gif

Judging by the picture, I think it'll look great without a train.

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 had mine cut to a sweep train and I was so happy I did. It made the dress very light and didn't look out of place on the beach at all. I think a sweep train would work for your dress as well.

I think a sweep train would be nice if you don't want a full train. Another option could be not to cut the train and just wear the dress bustled the whole time.

My train wasn't extra long but I don't think a train makes a dress look out of place on a beach. I am goig to give the same advice that I give to just about everyone - Do what you want! There are no rules.

I am in the same dilemma as you. I thought that my dress would be too fancy for a beach wedding as well. I opted not for taking the train off and I am just bustling it all night. I was afraid if I actually took the scissors to it that I would hate it and there is no going back.

 

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!

 

Good luck!

My dress had a train... about 3ish feet off the back.

 

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!!
