My dress had an itty bitty train that I don’t think you could even call a train.

I am still gushing over a dress I found online at Nordstroms that has no train at all. Love it. It’s still on my “could be the one” dress, but I won’t be able to try it on until after I return from deployment.

If you love the dress, that’s all that matters. Rue La La is having a Swarovski sale this very moment. You can join (for free of course) and shop your little heart away for bling at bargain basement prices: http://www.ruelala.com

My dress came with a fairly long train and I knew from the start that I wanted nothing to do with it. I hate the idea of anything trailing behind me and having people step all over it. I also hate the idea of a bustle because I don’t like the feeling of extra fabric hanging off my butt or at my ankles all night.

During my first alteration appointment I asked the seamstress to cut it off.  She kept saying “are you sure?” “you’re not going to change your mind later”? I said “absolutely not!! I want it GONE!” So she got down on her knees and cut it off! You should have seen the horror in her and the other brides in the shop’s face! But I was soo happy!! I could finally move around in my dress without getting caught up or stepping on it.

I wore a long train-less dress for our 2nd ceremony – we had a blessing in Ireland two weeks after our wedding.  It was much less formal than our wedding but I really loved the dress – it would have been easy to accessorize to make it more formal – I like your idea of the long veil and other accessories to ‘jazz’ it up!

Mine is tafetta and sweeps the floor, much like the hemline of AnamCara’s dress above, with no train. Our wedding is informal and I’m a klutz: two factors that led to my choice to forego the train. My veil is a simple elbow-length, but I think a cathedral veil is a great way to add drama to a floor-length gown. I have no photos yet, but will post after my 7/31 wedding.

So sorry to hear that your lace jacket is totally not like you expected – the one in the pic is very beautiful. Am afraid I don’t have any suggestions but I hope you’ll find something to your liking! Good luck!

Floor length.  No train.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It is exactly what I wanted.

No train here, either.  I knew from the beginning that I did not want one.  I found “THE” dress but it had a train so the alterations lady cut it off entirely for me.  Here’s a picture…

NOTE: It was really windy when we had our pictures taken so the dress was blowing in the wind.  It did not sitck out like that in back normally.  🙂

October, perhaps you could show the photo to a local seamstress and have her make you a better jacket?  Then you could go out to pick the lace yourself, etc.  I’ll bet she could make something gorgeous, just like you saw in the photo.
