I just bought my dress, it is polyester and tulle and it is floor length. I really wanted a train but i got this dress cheap and it looks and fits nice. Could i take a really long tulle veil and convert it into a train? Just take the comb off and hook it on the dress with little eyelets? And have just a tulle train? Or do you think it would look weird to have the train just tulle? That is my best and cheapest option. (the whole wedding has to be done under $1000) Or would it look better to buy polyester and completly fabricate a train and put tulle over it? I can sew ok but i thought it would be easier to just buy a cathedral veil and take the comb off, hook on some eyelets on the dress and its done.

I’d also have to say I think the dress will prolly look better without the tulle train, do you have a pic?

I’m sorry, no I don’t think that will look right.

I dont have any pics yet, bought it from someone on CL and cant find any images of anything like it. I think i may have solved my problem though. A cathedral veil, thats 2 layers, so i can have it cover my face, and be behind me. I’ll post dress pics when i have the chance to take them.

I have to say, I agree that the tulle train idea might look a bit strange. But have you thought about wearing a chapel or cathedral length VEIL, instead of a train? I think that the look of a veil extending past the hem of the dress and trailing on the ground is so elegant and lovely. If you google “cathedral veil,” you can see lots of examples of this–and it gives the look of a train without actually having one.
Just a thought 🙂
