    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

      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 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.
