You look gorgeous!

i’m not sure whether you’d loose some of the shape at the bottom of the dress if you removed the train? x

My dress doesn’t look anything like yours but i’m getting rid of my train. I hate pick-ups and would rather it be one length all around. My train isn’t long enough anyway so it won’t be missed.

I just did it the one time, on an undercover mission.  The train coupler had caught my dress, and the train was approaching 50 mph.  I had to cut the train off my dress and dive roll down the embankment.  Thank goodness I haven’t had to go undercover as a woman since.  That train incident was actually one of the less challenging things about pulling off the mission.

I wish I had because then so many ppl wouldn’t have stepped on it! Go for it!

I’d leave it. That train is gorgeous and I think it would ruin the silhouette if you chopped it off instead of bustling it.

I think you should keep it! Once it is hemmed to your height it won’t feel as big and overwhelming. I was a bride who never wanted a train too, until the dress I picked had one. I realized then it really does at something to the dress that will ‘wow’ everyone!
