How would it look to have a simple/no train dress and a really long veil? theres a dress I was thinking about buying from them, but they had the train removed, and I love having something long/dramatic on back of wedding dresses. It could be nice to just remove the veil for reception and not have to worry about a bustle…hmm…
Any of you bee’s do something similar? Just trying to figure out how to give a dress some extra “wow”

I want to do this also, chop my train off and have a very long veil. I really dont like how the dress sits bustled!

@batamont: There should be some sort of proportion between the end of the dress and the end of the veil, also the width of the veil will also add an element that you would need to take into consideration.
This would be fine if you are having an indoors wedding/Church, if it is outdoors, you may run the risk of damaging your veil. I found the following comments on another website. May be useful to you.
Floor Length (72″) – A floor length veil is very elegant and formal. If your gown has no train and you want a long veil, this is a wonderful choice.
Chapel Length (90″) – Perfect if you are looking for a long veil to compliment a gown with a short train.

Hmm good points, I’m not sure exactly how long but Iwanted it to sort of flow like a short train…but we will be out side…
Chapel might work for me well as I’m 6’2 lol

I am thinking of doing the same thing! And I found a great “floor length” veil in the material I want (chiffon, like my dress). However, I am hesitant since I’ve never seen it on anyone before. I really like the look of a wedding dress with a train (it’s traditional but not practical for me) so I think the long veil will make up for the lack of one and then I can take it off and party! Let me know what you decide and post pics and I will do the same!

I think avoiding a train is awesome! Just read through the regrets thread and see ow many brides had problems with their bustle. And I generally don’t like te way that bustles look. And if you like a long dramatic back, I think a veil could be a good way to do this. Just be sure you get something that isn’t going to get caught going down the aisle.
