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.

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
