@LilDrAnya:  I would contact someone on etsy who makes dresses and see if they will make one for you. Or a local seamstress.

My wedding dress for the first wedding had a detachable train. My Future Mother-In-Law made it. It attached to the dress with hook and eyes. the eyes were on the dress, camouflaged under a satin bow. The bow lifted yp, the train was attached, and then the bow was brought down over the edge of the train.

I made my train detachable. This was my dress (the back, with train):

so the seamstress just made that whole section come on and off with snap on button type things. worked great! I took it off for the reception.

That’s really lovely. I love the flowing look.

@LilDrAnya:

If you find a dress you love that doesn’t come with that option I suggest you talk to a seamstress and show her a picture to see if she could make it one.  I wouldn’t buy it before you talk to a seamstress or are willing to deal with not having a detachable train.  I have no idea how much it would cost.  You might look into getting a dress without a train and have one added to it.

Normally they are made with buttons and/or snaps.  I could see some maybe adding a few simple cross stiches that aren’t noticable and easy to take out.  I’ve never heard of any one using the cross stich method and I don’t think I’d be okay with that method.  The problem with taking out cross stiches on your wedding day is if you ruin it there is no going back.
