    Can your seamstress put in a multi-layer bustle (that won’t pull the dress off you with all the weight!)?

    Still no pics…

    But would it be possible to order the dress with a shorter train?  I know some designers will do this for custom orders.  9 feet seems like a lot of material to deal with, even if you bustle it well.  Keep in mind all that material is still there and you’re the one who has to carry it all night long.  Also, I’ve found that Pronovias dresses are heavier than many other lines for some reason.

    Could you have the seamstress shorten it?

    I searched for the dress and I LOVE the long train!!! You love the dress, you only get married once, and you would get the WOW factor with the long train!

     I think that the french bustle would love amazing and totally fit your reception (and you would only have to carry around the extra fabric for a couple hours at the reception) so I TOTALLY think that it is worth it!!!!! I say go for it!

    And…please don’t let other people discourage you from getting your dream dress! To what you feel is right!

    If you love the dress get it. Then you can always adjust the train on it. Good luck and let us know what you decide!

    If you love the dress go for it! I am getting married at a park in Lake Tahoe and I have a cathedral length train! I fell in love with the dress and basically said who cares if it is really long. I only get one chance to wear the dress of my dreams and I am going for it.

    Get your seamstress to alter the train to make it shorter!

    Its awesome – just have a seamstress bustle it for you – American or French would both look great! Its perfect for a church wedding 🙂
