Should I get the train of my dress cut??

Recommended Posts

Just like Amy, I cut most of the train off my dress as well. The train was way to long for me and it made my dress so much heavier! I am so glad that I did that. Hope that helped wink.gif

Wow your dress is gorgeous! I wouldn't change a thing...but that me. My dress has only a slight train but yours is soo nice and flowy I think that would be perfect for the beach and like the other ladies mentioned you can bustle it as well! I don't know if I would feel right cutting it off sad.gif LOL Good Luck on your decision!

What are you leaning towards? I think if you like the train and don't want it because it's not "beachy" I'd say keep it...but if you're uncomfortable with the train in general, cut it off.

You're going to be the one wearing it and looking at pictures forever so make sure you're happy. I think it'll look great either way!

Your dress will look beautiful whatever you decide to do.

 

I'm in the same situation with my dress, and the seamstress recommended cutting off the heavier layer underneath, i don't know if yours has more than one layer of fabric, and leaving the thinner train. I haven't fully decided yet, but i think i'll probably end up chopping the whole thing.

I really liked the final results of Amy's dress above!

Thanks - I was really happy with it too. In the end I have a bunch of wedding dress fabric saved that I hope to do a christening gown with!

I have a long train also. I didnt see any detail with yours. So I would go ahead a maybe cut some off but not all of it. However with that being said I am keeping my train but only the overlay. Im cutting the thick fabric underneith and keeping the lace/beading for a train. It will make my dress that much more lighter :) Its your choice and what ever will make you feel best on your big day

Thank you ladies for your opinions and Amy for the pictures!! That gives me a better idea and now I don't feel so sad if I cut if off ... I think I'll try it on again with a seamstress to she can give me her opinion. The dress doesn't have any detail on the train, so it won't too bad if i remove a little.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
