    I don’t really like trains on dresses usually, but I voted to keep it long. Your dress looks better on you than on the model, and the train looks great!

    What do YOU think?  I love the drama of it long. It’s beautiful. However, I chose to have mine hemmed short so that I didn’t have to bustle it.

    I honestly think the layered effect would look strange if you shortened it too much. What I would probably request is a bustle inputted and to make the last layer only a little shorter in the back but so it still has that beautiful layering effect. Not sure if I made sense then lol!

    Definitely keep it long! It looks gorgeous on you, and the shorter length looks bizarre to me!

    That dress looks a million times better on you than it does the model. As I was slowly scrolling down (and hadn’t yet realized that you had posted a second picture) I was thinking that the dress definitely wasn’t one I would ever put on. Then I saw you in it and was like wow! That dress is gorgeous!


    ETA: Long for sure!
