I was thinking I might add straps to my dress, what do you think out there? Also do you think address like this could be made into just floorlength rather than keeping the train? I am only 5’3 and the wedding is outside so I just wasn’t sure about keeping the long train.
other than those two things, I really love my dress! It is not what I thought I was going to want but the second I put it on I just knew it was right.

I think cutting the train off should look ok, I’m not sure what kind of straps you would add though, maybe thin blingy/beaded straps would look good, or even cap sleeves with leftover fabric from the train being removed. I think anything else might look awkward.

This was my wedding dress, only in white. It looks absolutely beautiful on you! I did add straps since I new I was goignt o dance a lot, they were really thin, plain white, thick straps. They ended up giving me a rash becuase of the wait of the dress, but it went away in a day or two. I was glad I opted for straps in the end.
I would not recommend cutting the train since the ruffles are not straight across but they dip in the back….it might turn out looking a little awkward. I ended up doing a traditional bustle (not the french bustle). The seamstress put on three pearl buttons that intergrated perfectly with the dress.
Hope this helps!

Yes to the straps. Any straps but I think some sheer ones would look amazing.

Keep it the same I think.

I’m always a huge advocate for adding straps! Then you won’t be worrying about pulling the dress up the whole night. If you want the train for the ceremony, you could just bustle the dress.

@Billierye: yay that was my dress as well!! I went steapless and was fine…I say leave as is. I danced the night away and nothing fell out 😉

I like it as-is! But I think the train removal wouldn’t be too hard!
