    @nanikoa:  Sorry I can’t help you… my dress IS a 2-in-1 so, problem solved.

    Can you seek out a few more opinions? See what others say.  If they all say it’s a bad idea, then perhaps they have a point – but if others say it’s possible and can come up with a good plan (that is clear), then perhaps it is possible!?

    @nanikoa:  A bride on here did. She made her skirt convertible AND changed the top from halter to strapless. I cant remember what thread she posted in but I think it was a recent one.

    @nanikoa:  honestly, it might be cheaper to buy a cute shorter dress vs the alterations to your dress.

    Unless there’s some details on the bottom of the dress that would be missing if you removed it, I don’t see the problem. I do think it’d be a lot of hassle and cost a lot for alterations. It’d probably be more cost effective to get a reception dress.

    @nanikoa:  I think this dress would be WAAAAY too sexy if it were tea-length or knee length.

    I would keep it long. Unless your reception is in a cave or something, I’m sure your skirt will be fine!

    I turned my dress into a 2-in-1 but I didn’t have to cut off any layers. I had a slim fitting trumpet style gown that I had a tulle ball gown layer made for it. I don’t think you can cut off layers and have your dress look right.

    I wouldn’t chop it and it seems as if you are still unsure. Don’t do it unless you know this is exactly what you want. There is not turning but once those scissors hit the tulle!
