    Well, to answer the easy question, I don’t think it’s too late to change (if you want to, not saying that you should).

    As to your dress, I think it’s beautiful, but the train is throwing me off.  As I was scrolling down I was like “pretty… pretty.. pretty… HOLY COW THAT’S A LOT OF TRAIN!” lol.  If it were me I would just cut the train off and make the back of the skirt like the front, or maybe leave a little sweep train.  But that’s such an easy alteration, and the dress is really beautiful and fun everywhere else.  So my honest opinion is if it were me, I would keep it but get the train under control πŸ™‚

    I think your dress is gorgeous.  I think you look beautiful in it.  I guess my advice would be to consider what mood you want your wedding to be– if you want to be a more traditional bride or not.

    I love that dress on you, but I think you could definitely lose a bit of the train.  That would tone it down a little.

    Gorgeous dress!  I would just cut down the train a bit to tone it down if you are concerned there is too much happening with the tulle.

    I would also just cut the train down a little, but that is completely do-able. The beaded bodice is gorgeous. If you feel beautiful in it, that’s what truly matters, even if it sounds cliche. If you don’t feel confident, you won’t look confident. It’s a pretty dress, but if you don’t feel 100% about it, maybe you should go with something else.

    i think it looks really pretty from the  top. But im not a fan of the bottom. and no its not too late. just make sure that wherever you get the dress from that the dress can arrive to you on time.

    I really like the top too, but I’m not a fan of the bottom. Maybe it’s because of the train being too long or maybe because the veil is exactly the same. I feel like that top with a satin or non-toile bottom would be perfect, however I dont’ know if you can return your dress. However, you’re beautiful and have a great shape so no matter what you wear you’ll look great! Good luck!

    Its a beautiful and unique dress but I agree with the others. The train and veil combo is too much. Maybe the alteration team can give you some tips on how to cut down on the train or figure out a way to make it work! Definately needs some tweeking though I think! Good luck on your big day!

    i think the dress looks great on you! Laughing

    I can see what you mean about it being a lot of dress though, it may be too late to find another dress.  Like everyone else said, I would get a handle on that train, but also, what if you tried on a shorter veil?  maybe the combo of the two is making it a little overwhelming as well.

    You look great!  If you are uncomfortable with the “poof” (and it seems that you are) just get it altered, no big deal!

    I think it’s beautiful.  I do agree with the earlier posts about the train though.  You can definately have some of the “poof” taken out of the dress to make you more comfortable.  good luck!
