If you want more a flare in the skirt you can add a mermaid crinoline. Personally I wouldnt remove the train, I would keep it and get a ncice bustle

Oh, it’s just a beautiful dress!  I love the train, and agree with the idea of a mermaid crinoline.

1) I would definitely add some tulle or something at the bottom to make it more poofy

2) keep the train

3) Maybe add a plain sash, and a flower to one side?  And I also think a sweetheart neckling would look just fine on you. I have the same boob problem you do, and I <3 my sweetheart neckline!!!

I think the dress is beautiful just as it is.

I would leave the train and then bustle it for the reception. I can’t see the back so I’m not sure what to suggest, but cutting the train and having to move all that lace/beading would be really difficult (and probably really expensive).

As for the neckline, you might want to do a modified sweetheart (rather than full) to get a little dip in the middle, but it wouldn’t draw attention to the spacing between your breasts (which I cannot really tell that they are far apart).

I agree with PPs.  Keep the train!  It’s so gorgeous!  And just bustle it when you need to.  I also agree about the sweetheart neckline.  It’ll look awesome 🙂

Leave the train, bustle it for the reception.  I usually don’t like sashes, but I think if you added one (even for just the reception) similar to the Maggie Karena Royale sash, it could look really nice.  I don’t think it needs any poof, but if you like poof, I think you could add a crinoline.  Just make sure you won’t be too hot or uncomfortable with it outside.

I love it and wouldn’t change anything about the train or the fullness of the skirt–I think it looks perfect. I agree with KatNYC2011‘s suggestion of a modified sweetheart neckline–I think it would look great on you and I also think a slight dip in the neckline would complement the other gentle curves of the dress.
