I haven’t bought my dress yet but I tried on two yesterday that I really liked – neither have a train.

And here are two more that I’ll be trying on this Saturday

I go back tomorrow for my final fitting. I had the train chopped off my dress–I like the lines of the dress better that way. I’ll try to get a picture tomorrow!

Minde did not have a train…and I loved it! No need to worry about busteling or anything!!

I had my train chopped off and I love it.  The dress still looks amazing, but it is soooo much lighter and I love that I won’t have to fight with a bustle all night (I have never seen one last through the night).   Sorry, I don’t have pics, but trust me, it’s awesome 🙂

My dress had a huge train that I didn’t care for.  I had it permanently bustled because having it completely removed was going to cost $100.  I’m really glad I got it permanently bustled because otherwise if I just had a bustle it wouldn’t have lasted…it was getting constantly stepped on!

Ooh…LOVE that second dress! So sweet. Are those J.Crews?

My dress has no train either. It comes with optional 18″ train and I decided to order it without. I’m getting married at a merry-go-round and I kept joking that I want to be able to climb on a carousel horse in my wedding dress (OK…maybe it’s NOT a joke). Also, I really don’t want to have to take wardrobe assistants with me to the bathroom to pee.

When I envisioned my uncoordinated self in that venue dragging a train behind me, I saw the potential for all sorts of stepping-on and tripping-over accidents. As it is, I have enough to worry about staying properly laced into my corset and not falling over in ‘sensible’ (but still unfamiliarly high) heels.

Sometimes I feel a bit wistful for the drama of a train, but I think I’ll be much happier not having to deal with one all evening. I decided to wear a traditional veil to ‘bride up’ my informal gown a bit. Good luck with your choice! Seems you can’t go wrong with any of the above.

Mine has a very slight train, but it is being bustled underneath because there’s a lot of cool detailing on the bottom half of the skirt. So,it will look like it has a bubble hem.

Here’s (not super-flattering) photo from my fitting today. I am so much happier having the train off.

Anyone know how I change the size of a photo file?

@danadelphia  I am trying to contain my excitement but those are ARIAs right?  I have been looking for someone who has tried them on, what did you think?!   I love their dresses, and I love the fact that you can get one and add your own embellishments.  Did you try the shantung, or the taffeta?

Thanks!
