I was hoping to go for a more sleeker look. I am thinking of cutting the train off of my dress. We are having a small intimate wedding (38 people invited). Ceremony and Reception in same room (see pic down below). This is not our first marriages for both of us. I am doing a birdcage veil with a flower feather fascinator – so no long veil for me. I would feel really uncomfortable in a traditinal veil. now the train is kind of making me feel uncomfortable. What do you think? Would the dress look good without the train? This would save me from having to pay for bustling and probably just swapping that charge out for cutting entire train off. I have lost a few lbs now since these pictures were taken.

You look gorgeous!
i’m not sure whether you’d loose some of the shape at the bottom of the dress if you removed the train? x

My dress doesn’t look anything like yours but i’m getting rid of my train. I hate pick-ups and would rather it be one length all around. My train isn’t long enough anyway so it won’t be missed.

I just did it the one time, on an undercover mission. The train coupler had caught my dress, and the train was approaching 50 mph. I had to cut the train off my dress and dive roll down the embankment. Thank goodness I haven’t had to go undercover as a woman since. That train incident was actually one of the less challenging things about pulling off the mission.

I wish I had because then so many ppl wouldn’t have stepped on it! Go for it!

I’d leave it. That train is gorgeous and I think it would ruin the silhouette if you chopped it off instead of bustling it.

I think you should keep it! Once it is hemmed to your height it won’t feel as big and overwhelming. I was a bride who never wanted a train too, until the dress I picked had one. I realized then it really does at something to the dress that will ‘wow’ everyone!
