Well, I have no picture of me IN the dress.  But here’s a picture of the dress with an angry looking model.  🙂  http://www.venusbridal.com/bridals/venus-informals/VN6641-VN6651  When I was trying on dresses, the trains felt too…something?  Too much.  And this one was great because it has all the features of a dress that I like, without the train.  And, I think that made it significantly cheaper too.

Mine doesn’t have much train. I’m getting married on the beach, so I might even have it bustled the whole time, haven’t decided yet.

Mine came with a 4′ train, but I cut the whole thing off! The seamstress kept saying “are you sure? are you sure???” before she made the cut. The look on the other bride’s faces in the salon were as if I were clubbing a baby seal. However, I was certain I didn’t want a train.

We got married in a restaurant and our aisle was walking through our guests’s tables, so I didn’t feel the need to have a train following behind me. I also didn’t love the idea of a bussel hanging off my butt all night.

It turned out fantastic!

Well mine didn’t, but I was going for a Victorian look (to match my hat) and I just didn’t feel a train was appropriate for a 50 year old bride getting married for the third time!

Mine is tea length… So no train! My ankles are showing.

 

Of course you want to see it again… 😉 Three more inches will be removed during alterations, so it will be proper tea-length.

Mine (Maggie Sottero “Vernice”) had a “sweep” train (I think that’s the shortest you can get). I posted a few pics from different angles.

I don’t have a photo of it bustled, but it was an “underbustle,” which I didn’t even know about until the seamstress suggested it. Basically, they attach the buttons inside the dress and the train is folded under to create an even hem, giving the illusion that it doesn’t have a train. I loved it because my back-end is wide enough and I didn’t need any more volume, LOL!

I’m wearing a floor length gown with no train but I don’t have any pics of it because my guy is a snoop and I don’t want him to see it before the wedding!

I haven’t bought it yet and don’t have pictures of me in it to reflect the lack of train, but I went dress shopping telling the consultants I do not want a train.  I don’t really like how bustles look, I’m a klutz, and we’re having a very short ceremony and a long reception.  It seemed silly for me to have a train that I would probably fall over and would be hidden for 95% of the night.  No train!!!

I don’t have any pictures of the back of my dress, but it barely has a train. Since it’s beaded lace, I’m so worried that I’ll end up stepping on it and ripping it. So, I’m having a one point bustle made!

These are all so beautiful! I obviously don’t have a dress yet because I’m WAY far out from the wedding, but I don’t really want a train because I feel as if it would be… cumbersome to me, or something. I don’t know. Anyway, I think this dress from Mori Lee is gorgeous:

My dress has no train. It may be a tiny bit longer in the back, but when I get it hemmed it will definitely be one length.

I’m wearing the same dress as @noodlesploosh. My requirement for the dresses I tried on was that they could be modified to not have a train. I am very realistic about the fact that I’m not the most graceful in the world, and I didn’t want anything that could potentially trip me or get stepped on.
