Hmmm… the picture is all messed up in the link that you provided for some reason.  do you have a picture of you in the dress.  Lots of us had dress jitters and made it through 🙂

If the beading on the top of the dress bothers you that much, I think that it’s great that the shop is willing to take it off free of charge…

I can’t help with the train decision, but having the beading removed seems like a simple choice.  I would hate to have something on my dress that bothered me THAT much, it would be all that I would obsess over…

If it’s in your budget to do so, it might be the best idea to go with option #1 and choose a new dress. Try to negotiate the ‘restocking’ fee down to 15% or 10%. There seem to be too many things you don’t like about your dress. But as DG pointed out – lots of bees have had major dress jitters and everything worked out fine.

Oh, I am totally freaking out.  But my dress is custom sized and on the higher side of 5K, not to mention my wedding is next Sunday, so I just have to suck it up cause there isn’t any turning back now!

I just keep reminding myself that I chose it for a reason and that no matter what I had picked, I would be doubting it until the last minute because that is who I am.

I say take option 1 if it will ease your stress.  But be prepared that you might regret your second choice just as much.

I wonder what a detachable train would even look like?

What if you could get a cathedral length veil? Then you would have that train effect, without having to alter the dress. I think the idea of taking the beading off is a good one, if you like the fit, the details are changable!

I don’t know how a detachable train would look, but if it looks nice, I say go for it! I think some people just second guess their decisions, I have a friend like that. Anything she gets, she is going to second guess it. Take pictures when you go back, I bet you look beautiful in it!

I was thinking the same as mskalinin, a cathedral veil might be the ticket!
