    I wanted my wedding dress to be (traditional) formal looking - lacy and beaded! But, also wanted it to have a beach feel. All the beach wedding gowns I tried on were either too plain or too casual. (We planned a beach ceremony, and a formal reception at the resort pool deck. The guys would be wearing tuxedos.) So, to the horror of the seamstress who altered my gown, I had the lining of the train removed, leaving only the lace overlay. It was exactly what I wanted. It really did make the whole dress! Sometimes you have to dare to be different.

            That's really pretty, great idea!  I also like the idea that it's lighter weight.

                great idea!! I wore a Maggie gown that has just the lace part for the train and it looked so beautiful in the sand.

                    fantastic idea! I'm not a fan of a train, but I really like that :)
