I had an A-line dress with about a 3 foot train… I had no issues going by myself.  I simply hiked up my dress and looped my skirt and train over my arm to ensure it stayed out of harms way 🙂  Good luck!

ugh – i am worried about the same thing!  My dress isn’t too big – similar to yours:  A-line but a train.

You should be ok!  Mine was also A-line with a train and I went by myself.  Like nvybaby said – just hike it up and loop the train over your arm.  I did have to have my Maid/Matron of Honor adjust my crinoline underneath after, but that’s not really a big deal

I was going to ditto the backwards thing. It’s what my photographer said. honestly, mom helped me the first time–held up my train for me, but once the reception hit, I just crammed myself into the handicap bathroom and lifed it all up over my shoulder. I only had a short train and my bustle wasn’t huge either.

I felt like I was the only person thinking about something like this!!! It is one of my main worries for the day! Sounds like it will be possible to do the whole bathroom thing on my own though which is nice haha

This is the one thing that made me NOT want to wear a full length dress. I love and adore all my friends, but not enough to let them in the bathroom with me.

You know, I was worried about this, too.  I hadn’t heard that backwards technique, but it sounds like that would work out.  I was actually really surprised that I didn’t have to go the entire day once I put the dress on!  I think maybe my body just knew it would be too difficult!  Ha!

I also ditto the backwards thing. I got that advice from my SIL. I luckily didn’t have to use the bathroom the ENTIRE night which is unusual for me.

Those are really good tips on the link there. It sounds like I’ll be okay with a short train and modified A-line.

I was wondering about this, I think we you go dress shopping you should get to try all this stuff out, sitting, dancing, trying to get into a bathroom stall…it sounds funny but seriously, wouldn’t that be a great test drive for the big day?

Luckily, I seem to have a huge bladder, so maybe I can pee before I put on my dress and that be it. I wouldn’t mind my friends helping, it’s just that I don’t want to risk messing up my dress!

This is why I’m so glad I’m a short dress bride!

My dress was huuuuuuge and my bridal salon actually gave me a little lesson in using the bathroom. LOL… seriously, at my last fitting, she pulled me aside and was like, your dress is so big, I suggest this: and she mentioned going backwards. So basically, instead of going into the stall and turning around, go straight in. You would pee facing the back of the toilet. I guess this is so the bulk of your dress is behind you. If your dress is so huge that you really do need help, peeing this way will give you a little privacy, because your bridesmaid/mom can just hold the back of your dress up in the air. 

If your dress isn’t that big, I’d just recommend going into a larger stall and making sure to hold everything up! Don’t forget about any little strings or sashes or anything else hanging off your dress! 🙂
