So I bought my dress and don’t get me wrong I love my dress. However I have been seeing some wedding photos and I keep thinking ” I want a train”. I didn’t want a big train but now that I bought a dress with no train I want a little one.
Maybe I am just having a case of the second thoughts. I had two dresses picked out I picked the one that looked better on me but for some reason I still think about the other dress. It has beautiful beading and a little bit of a train. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.

I didn’t want a train, but couldn’t find anything I liked without one, so I got a sweep train. While not a regret, since I didn’t have a better option, I wish I would NOT have had one. It was just a pain. FH and I took a short walk together after we finished our pictures, and BMs were at the reception site, so I couldn’t bustle until we got to the reception. PITA!

One of my friend’s had the same issue. She LOVED her dress, but it didn’t have a train. Instead of buying a new dress, she got a cathedral length veil.
She told me it was the perfect solution to her problem because it gave her the same look as a train walking down the aisle, but she didn’t have to worry about bustling it or dealing with it at the reception.
Maybe a long veil is something you can look into?

I had a very small train (I think its called a sweeping train) but I only had it down before the ceremony and then during the ceremony. Right after I had it bustled because we were going to be walking all over the place for pictures and I didnt want to have to worry about it. I do regret not getting a good picture of the back of my dress with the train spread out (except the one from my ceremony) but its not that big of a deal because I loved my dress in general!

I didn’t want a huge train…. it just feels like I cant move with all that fabric… so I went with a chapel which seems long to me even! I think if you are uncomfortable with a long train, its more important to have what you will be comfortable in all night — as oppose to getting something for just pictures. The suggestion about a long veil is a good one!
