    I’m having trouble picturing the way it will fall if it’s cut short. It looks so flowy and elegant.

    It looks beautiful this length, can’t imagine it short…I say it could be worn on the beach with some cute blinged out flip flops (maybe tall flip flops) to compensate for the length…don’t cut it….

    I think its lovely as is. I really don’t think it would look good short. But that is just my opinion. Maybe its because I couldn’t actually picture it short.

    However they’re some lovely short wedding dresses! Google it! 🙂

    unless you are set on a short dress i think its perfect the way it is for a beach wedding in jamaica! the lightweight fabric and the flow of the dress will look beautiful in pictures on the beach, especially if there is a little breeze.

    We honeymooned in jamaica in the middle of february – the weather was perfect! im sure it will be a tad warmer by the end of march but i think you can pull it off.

    I loooove this dress the way it is!  It looks very flowy and totally appropriate for a beach or more casual wedding.  I honestly can picture how it would hang if you cut it.

    Sorry, but no. I think it would end up looking like an ice dancing costume. It’s perfectly suitable for an informal destination wedding as-is, IMO.

    I really wouldn’t cut this gorgeous dress.  Leave it as is!

    You should look into a two in one dress, that has a detachable skirt. There are several out there now, that way you could have your long and short look.

    I’d say go for it! Cut it short! 

    I was going to go for the same thing! As long as you go to a good seemstress, it will be fine. I think it is highly problematic to have a long dress on the beach- it will be ruined and look horrible for the rest of the day.

    I think it will look okay shorter, but not too short.  I think it will fall like any other flowy below the knee length dress.  Maybe you can use some sort of photshop program to get an idea of the look.  I’d be worried about the hem being right.  Can you order it shorter in the first place?  If you can, I’d do that.

    I just can’t imagine that this dress will look as gorgeous if you shortened it. I think this would work perfectly as is for a casual beach wedding, but if you’re set on a short dress, I would start looking at wedding dresses that are already short.

    I agree with PP, I think this dress is already absolutely perfect for a beach wedding! I’d just get some nice sparkly sandals or even go barefoot 🙂 It’s a gorgeous dress!
