    There’s a size 8 on the DB dress you like on recycled bride:


    A size 6


    If you don’t want to buy another dress, I voted for the remove the satin underlay and leave the lace. My dress was taffeta, we also had an outdoor wedding and that worked for me. For the record I think the dress you have looks great on you!

    If you like the A-line shape and you don’t want the train down at all I say just chop it off! By The Way I think the dress is beatiful the way it is and you look great in it but I don’t see the point in lugging around the train if you’re never going to let it down.

    If you aren’t going to wear your train at all except for bridal portrait I would have the pictures done way ahead of time and then have it chopped for the actual wedding. No sense in having it if you don’t like it:)

    @sienna76: If you purchased the size 8, it could most likely be altered to fit you. But I understand the reluctance to buy without knowing the dress will fit.

    If you don’t like the train, chop it.  Don’t go halfway and chop just the underlayer- the lace will get caught on every little thing on the ground unless you bustle it all day, and if you’re going to bustle it all day anyway, what’s the point?

    I would get rid of the train if you are sure you don’t want it. There is no point carrying it around with you in a bustle just for pictures later IMO

    Keep your dress – it’s so pretty! I say just chop the train off.
