Hemming this dress is absolutely possible and an experienced seamstress will be able to do the train just fine – the shaping of a hem on this dress is super straightforward. The issue is in the finishing of the final hem. Whoever does it will need to remove excess sequins and re-secure (sew) all the ends of the sequin lines down so you don’t molt down the aisle.

I would call ahead and ask them how much it would be to hem a sequin gown, they should be honest with you, but you are looking at easily over $100.
