For all those who did, or will, get married on the beach... how long was your dress? The dress I bought has a small train and I am debating whether to cut it off and have my dress all floor length, or to keep it and have it bustled or a hoop to hold it. Opinions/suggestions?

I have purchased a pair of wedge shoes to wear walking down the aisle on the beach to help with the length of my dress not drag.  I do have a small train behind me that will 'drag' on the beach/sand, but oh well :)

 

I would see a seamstress and ask for their recommendations.

I am getting married on the beach and my dress is floor length with a WEE bit dragging at the back. Wouldn't call it a train, but it will drag a bit. My seamstress said it looked really pretty like that, and I agree. I'll be barefoot for the ceremony. But I also have flip flops for walking around, not that they'll do much for the dragging. It's not a bad fabric to wash, so it shouldn't be a problem to clean afterward.

Thanks for the tips... it's pretty so I really don't want to chop it off but wasn't sure how it'd manage in the sand. Glad to know others have a little dragging behind them as well! I'll ask the seamstress at my fitting but I think I'm going to keep it :)

I think the type of material is very important for the train.  Organza would be best - it doesn't pick up sand as much, and if it does get wet and sandy, you can just brush it off once it dries.  Something like satin would be a pain in the butt - think how much water it would soak up, and the sand would really stick.  I'm not sure what to think of lace, I guess it would depend.  Something to think about.
