I purchased a Galina Signature SV415 dress and I love it! Only thing is I am 5’2″ and my wedding is going to be in June and the skirt is pretty heavy. I am thinking about getting it altered to have no train, or a very little train. I have even considered making it ballerina length (Just at the ankles slightly above the floor) like Allure 8803 http://www.brides.com/wedding-dresses-style/allurebridals-8803-2000000001108868 so I don’t have to worry about bustling it.

I think the bottom half of the dress is so beautiful and what makes this dress stand out. My opinion on what to do is to alter it with no train and leaving length.
Dress is beautiful on you, btw.

I would cry if you cut off the train. I love it! Atleast have a small train

I had a 70-80 Degree (F) October wedding in Texas, and just added a bustle to my ball gown in my outdoor wedding.
If you prefer to not have a train, I would say just get rid of the train part instead of the ballerina style (though it may turn out cute at that length, just might not be as proportionate). A small train might be a good idea, too. Either way, I think the dress is very pretty!

I think the train is gorgeous! My vote is to leave it as is and just bustle it after the ceremony.

🙁 aw, dont cut the dress too short-lol so pretty and the skirt makes the dress. here is a bustle dlook to help shorten the train, pics are not that great. it was a two button bustle from davids, actually looks super cute on-and is a lot less expensive than chopping it. I was considering the bustle even for the ceremony bc I like it so much.

Id on’t know about hte ballerina length… it works on the allure because the dress ia a natural waist. I’m not sure how it would look with a dropped waist…

For those who are curious here is what my dress ended up looking like after alterations. I do not have my official wedding pictures but I had to share!
