My dress has a pretty small train, but I’m kind of worried that since we’re getting married outside in a forest that it will be sweeping up woodland creatures as I walk and trapping them in my skirt. The train is also super dirty from the dress’ last owner, and I’m thinking if I lop it off then I won’t have to worry about getting the dirt out, but hemming dresses is probably harder than washing them. I would make FI do it for me, but I think I want to keep my dress a secret. This is my dress, btw.
Has anyone worn a train-bearing dress at your outdoor wedding? How did it work out for you?

I’m not married yet but you could have an aisle runner, just throwing it out as a suggestion. 🙂

i second the aisle runner idea, and you could always bustle the dress if you are concerned, the dress is gorgeous by the way 🙂

@MabelleBliss: hi i had a fairly big train on my dress. the ceremony was indoors but our entire reception party was outdoors overlooking the sea. i carryed the train some of the time and just let it drag most of the time. i found no issue with bugs but my shoes and dress were very dirty afterwords. hope this helps and enjoy it it will be amazing

I had a train on my dress on our outdoor wedding. Most of the event was on paved ground outside and we did some pictures on the front lawn. For our glamour shots of the wedding, I bustled the dress so it wouldn’t get too sandy and dusty before the ceremony.

“sweeping up woodland creatures as I walk and trapping them in my skirt”
OMG, that is too funny!
I know this material (I happen to own the T3185 gown) and good thing is that it probably will not snag on much. It’s a pretty sturdy material! I think you could even wash the bottom yourself in your bathtub if you wanted to spruce it up before the wedding.
I also know the sweep train you speak of! Do you have any bustles at all? What do you plan to do with the train for the after wedding stuff?
I’d either just let it run on the ground or bustle it while outdoors.
Couple of bustled photos of your gown:

I will be wearing a gown with a cathedral length train for an outdoor wedding. I’m thinking I’ll just leave it bustled the whole time. It’s on paver stones outside, but I’ll let out the train for a few photos, not for the ceremony. That’s probably sounds funny to some – hide a cathedral length train for most of the wedding!
