Unfortunately I can’t chime in on the train removal question but I did want to show you this article on Bustles for Your Gown.  The low bustles (One Point Under or French) might be the ticket for you because they bustle low so they don’t add bulk to your booty area  Laughing.   Just wanted to chime in with that on the off chance that it might help you get the dress you like better and not have to pass on it.  

Hope it helps!  Also bumping this thread to see if anyone can chime in with train-removal experiences as well.

Best,

My Future Sister-In-Law did this to her dress. She actually loved the dress but hated the train so she had it taken off. Their wedding isn’t for a few more weeks (10/16) so I haven’t seen it on her yet without the train but I got to see the dress. On the hanger it looks nice and you can’t even tell. I’m not sure how much the alterations cost and I don’t want to come right out and ask her, but I know she went to someone her mom knew instead of the bridal salon where she bought it. She was told and heard from many friends that they often mess up the alterations and the quality of work is better from someone who isn’t working for a big store. Good Luck

I want to do this to my dress to – I didn’t appreciate the pressure this one saleslady at the bridal salon was putting on me (you only get to wear a train once in your life – I told her I was fine with never, thanks) but she went on to say it might affect how the dress “drapes” and since it drapes perfectly now, I was worried. I really don’t like the look of the bustle. I checked out the article and the underbustle didn’t seem so bad. I just really don’t want it. Looking forward to seeing how yours goes.
