Oops, your link takes me back to this post! I had to copy/paste your link text into my browser. Just FYI 🙂

Exactly which one of the dresses is it? The page shows around 12 different dresses which are variations on the same style.

Also, why do you want to shorten the train? Are you worried it’ll look too formal?

I shortened a friend’s wedding dress last week, including the train, as she didn’t want to be tripped up by it. Having said that, it was a really simple dress bought off the peg from Debenhams, with a tiny puddle train, and no underskirt.

I’d say it’s up to you and your seamstress. Personally I’m looking forward to swicshing around in a train for the day (My dress is Begonia by Marylise, You can see the train on p14 of this pdf http://onossocasamento.pt/files/Marylise_2007_web.pdf). But if you’re worried about tripping over or dragging extra weight or it’s just not your style, then go for getting it shortened. With the proviso that you should check that your seamstress/alterations person knows what they’re doing and is happy to shorten it for you.

My dress isn’t in yet but I’m going to have the train shortened or removed completely. I just don’t like the way bustles look! Remind your family that trains are only visible for a short amount of the night before they get buttoned to your butt!
