    LadyPeacockk:  Do you mean long all around or something like a train? I’d be more concerned on tripping on the dress and ripping it if it were overall too long.

    For all of my prom dresses in the past that did not have trains, I always kept the hem long in the back and then had the front hemmed appropriately but tapered to the back hem. That way it looked like a had a small romantic sweep train but still did not trip in the front. I’d say at the least you need to hem the front to make sure it doesn’t look messy depending on how long it is…

    i think it really only works with very flowy, light fabrics – like chiffon.

    LadyPeacockk:  I would be very cautious and practice walking a TON just to make absolute sure that you won’t trip on it walking normal, walking fast, walking with heels, going up stairs, and dancing. I’d be really nervous it would end up shredding the dress either from me being clutzy or other people stepping on it.

    It’s dangerous! You will be stepping all over it, all night, could fall or tear the dress! No no no!

    Ha!! My dress was a little long because I left my crinoline slip at home two hours away and didnt realize until the day of! I spent the day tripping on my dress, everyone stepped on it, even though there was only like an inch that draped to the floor. someone stepped on the back and ripped my bustle. At that point I didnt care who stepped on it, I danced, people spilled on my dress, even I dropped and entire glass of water on it. everyone commented on how romantic and soft it looked but I was miserable in it until I had a few drinks and sopped caring. DEFINITELY make sure you get a slip to keep from tripping but be prepared for dancing feet to step on it! 

     

    In all honesty though……despite tripping and being stepped on my dress just billowed and moved SO softly without the slip and with the extra fabric Length.

    It risks making you look like the dress is wearing you, instead of the other way around.

    LadyPeacockk:  you could take off your shoes (if you’re wearing heels) for some portraits- that will give you the look for a bit. then carry on with your reception wearing shoes.
