    If you want to leave it, leave it. Or you could call the store and ask about having it lengthened at least a little to ease your mind. = )

    Just get a long cathedral veil and that will give extra length to the whole look.

    Another option is to get a cathedral length veil which might be cheaper than actually lengthening the train.  But think about this, the ceremony is probably 30 min max and then you bustle it.

    leave the train as is and get a cathedral length veil. they’re less than $100 on etsy.

    I would like to join the “Get a super glam long veil” camp. It’s the perfect way to have ALL the drama and none of the bustling 🙂

    Your dress is beautiful and it is so much more than just a train!  I vote for keeping it as is.


    I’ve also seen severl cathedral length veils that are unembellished until the bottom edge.  I think that might really work well for your situation.

    Hi Unixfairy, 

    Why don’t you go for a veil that’s slightly longer than your train?  That way you get the feel of a long train during the ceremony, but you don’t have this big thing in the way all night long?

    I’m also in the camp of the the dress as is and get a long train.  I think it would look beautiful with your dress!

    i think a long train might overpower the venue. your dress is stunning, and it doesn’t need a long train! it is GORGEOUS!

    I agree with the cathedral length veil idea. It’s a lovely dress as it is.

    I agree with the cathedral veil idea as well as it will give the illusion of a longer train. 🙂 Gorgeous dress by the way!

     A longer train would ruin the look of the dress. I’d go with your instinct and leave it as is; chalk another one up for the cathedral length veil instead.
