    If it is an outdoor wedding then I do think that you should cut off train, and I dont think it would ruin it at all, but to be on the safe side you might want to ask about this first and then make your decision. Good luck!

    I looove long trains and have a very long train myself. I think they are gorgeous regardless of the ceremony space so I vote no.

    I’m a huge fan of trains so it’s hard for me to say cut it off but if you don’t want a train you could just bustle it? Do you plan to sell it afterwards… it may be easier to sell it with the train still there.

    I agree with your mom that it would ruin the flow of the dress to cut it off completely, but I do think you could have it shortened into a sweep train that might be more manageable.

    Gosh, I just love this train so much that it’s hard for me to tell you anything about cutting off the train! I think it will look fine with the train cut off, but it’s just too beautiful!

    I love long dramatic trains for when you are walking down the aisle. I had a long train and yes, it is heavy. Once you bustle it the weight of it was hilarious to me, I would turn and then 5 seconds later wooosh there came my bustle weight. I had a second wedding dress for the reception though, a sheath gown that I chopped the train off of. That allowed me to have a light dress that I could dance freely in.

    I think your mom is right, it would ruin the flow of the dress. I think it’s absolutely beautiful. You’re gonna rock it!
