@Elfi35601:  If it’s uncomfortable have it tailored shorter or get it bustled.

I would say you made the right choice, 100% for sure! This board is site of reassurance. I designed my dress without a train for the very same reason. Unfortunately that dress didn’t work out and I was forced to buy a dress yesterday with just 1 week till my wedding. This dress has a huge train which wasn’t what I was picturing and I had to post pictures on here just to get reassurance that I didn’t make a quick, horrible decision because I was desperate for a dress. Bees are the best!

Oh also, I used to work in bridal. You can totally french bustle your dress and leave it bustled your entire wedding. It will be the same length as the front once bustled. It will give it a little more volume in the back of the dress, but will look very similar to the front “tucked” layers of your dress. You may just love it. Ask the seamstress to pin it to show you what it would look like and then make your decision! 🙂

just food for thought…. your wedding is the one day you can wear a big dress with a long train. do you think you will be the kind of person to regret not having one later? if so i too suggest getting a pretty bustle then you can decide if you want it up the whole time or down during the ceremony and up for the reception.

I like that idea of at least seeing what you think of the bustle.  If you like it, then you’ll have the option of wearing it down, but you don’t have to.  I actually really liked the way my dress looked bustled.  But if you still think it would be uncomfortable & heavy, there’s nothing wrong with taking it off.  It’s your dress & your day and no one but you will know the difference ;).

I planned to shorten mine (it’s similar to yours in length and weight), however my seamstress and sister both told me that I shouldn’t. As a PP said, it is the only time we will ever wear a dress with a train. My seamstress is adding a bustle instead in case I really don’t want it on the day. And, a week out from the wedding, I’m glad they talked me out of it!
