    Do you like the look of it bustled? I ask because you may have to bustle it during your  photos on on the beach. You may be able to show the train during the ceremony if the area is clean and dry though!

    @monicaking77:  I think your dress is lovely as it is and I don’t think you should alter the train. Sand isn’t as dirty as people think; it tends to all just fall out and not leave many stains (as long as the sand was dry, not wet). And if it does stain there is a great bustle that you can use to hide it. You should look up Mrs. Nachos’ bustle. I used it and it’s great! Your dress is similar to hers too.

    Edit: I just went and found the link to her bustle post for you: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/08/25/ballroom-bustle-train-flip-how-to/?comment-page=1#comments

    Sand probably won’t make it dirty… it won’t stain, and should just shake off once dry.  I love the lines of the dress, and I would leave it as is personally.  I love the drama of a train on the beach.
