Anyone having/had a long train on their dress? I am! post your pictures!
For those of you that are already married– How did everything work out that day? Any rips? Did you bustle before the cereomony? Any special photo ops to get?
What should we know? I’m trying to think about how not get it dirty as we take picture etc.

I wanted a looong train and that is what I got. It is cathedral length and was the longest train on any dress in the store. My dress is Loretta (Sottero and Midgley).

My maggie gown hada chapel train and I loooved it! I had 0 issues with it…it was easy to bustle and no rips! I only wish my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t complain about having to carry it so much;) Where’s pippa middleton when you need her?!

A long train is dreamy, especially as you’re walking rown the aisle. However, I’m opting for a removable train, that way, when it’s time for me to do some dancing, I can boogie to my heart’s content. 🙂

Here’s my photog’s blog of our wedding – the slideshow has several nice pics showing off the train.
No rips but lots of dirt/grass stains from outside pics. That caused some serious panic as we did pre-ceremony pics and all I could think was everyones’ going to see my long beautiful train covered in dirt! Note to other brides – get the tide pen! mulitple ones! they did a great job getting most of it out. I know the pro pics will just have it Photoshopped out, but I don’t think anyone noticed at the ceremony either.
My Maid/Matron of Honor also complained about the long train. We bustled before we went in for the 1st dance. The first and most important button broke. Always.have.safety.pins. They saved the day.
I wanted a few pictures on the gorgeous staircase at our venue, and I did get them. You can see one about 2/3 through the slideshow.
It was a bit of a pain, but I loved the train and the great pics I’m going to have make it worth it 🙂

Mine is a chapel train, which is more than long enough for me 🙂

I felt like mine was forever long (cathedral length), but there’s definitely MUCH longer out there. I didn’t have issues with it at all, and only bustled for the reception 🙂

I LOVE long trains. I only ended up with a chapel train as that is what the dress I fell for had, but I think long trains are beautiful!

My train is extremely long on my dress for some reason. Its pretty, but long. I will bustle for some pre ceremony pics with my girls and some family.. Just none with Fiance.. He doenst want to see me before 🙂 And then maybe some with the train out right before we go in to start the ceremony. I just cant imagine walking around all morning trying to mke sure everything is set and ready etc with that huge train out. It will be a pain in the butt and I know it. So away it will go.

I didn’t think I wanted a long train, but loved it.
It’s now a little dirty underneath the skirt but that’s it. I didn’t bustle it until before I started dancing. I took the veil off though before the meal which was after the above last picture, as it was a bit windy and I kept having to keep messing with it, plus it had got caught under my feet and my shoes had ripped a hole in it 🙁

I had a chapel length train and I LOVED wearing it!! I bustled it right before the reception, and had to have it rebustled probably 3 times that night (it kept coming undone, but I didn’t really mind). I also got a little “stuck” leaving the church because the lace got caught on a door frame, but my husband was very patient and helpful (and we got a funny pic out of it too!) It rained…A TON…on my wedding day, so getting into the car with it was a bit amusing, as well. But all in all, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way…it was too much fun having a train despite the little annoyances. And you all have BEAUTIFUL dresses (and really pretty ceremony shots)!!!
