I can’t help with pictures, but I had them put a bustle in (one where they make it look like there is no train, the small train that the dress had has just been tucked under and secured) and I plan to keep it bustled for the ceremony and reception. I knew from the get-go that I didn’t want a train. Even a “sweep” train was too much for me.

I don’t have any pics of the after yet, but I removed the train from my dress and it looks great!

Yes!  I removed the train from my dress.  It was way too long and too much to fuss with to walk/dance in.  Took it to a tailor and they did all my alterations, including the train removal.  I’m very pleased!

Here are before & after pics:

Giving this a little bump to help other brides that are thinking about removing their train-

I removed the train from my Maggie Sottero Milana, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made- the dress is so much lighter and easier to move in. My seamstress is a magician and even though it’s not quite finished (will post pictures when it’s done), you can’t even tell that it’s been altered.

One warning though, it wasn’t inexpensive- the total cost of my alterations was about 1/2 the price of my dress! However, my dress was less than my original budget, and it was worth the price to make it perfect.
