    I say, if you can get the train, get it. I remember from your other post that you were kinda bummed about how “less bridal” it felt to you. I think a train would still work wonders in your venue and you would feel all of the bride you are! Plus, the simplicity and elegance of the train on that dress is so pretty. I can tell you, a train doesn’t necessarily add that much weight. My 9 ft train didn’t feel any more or less heavy than some dresses I tried on. And the amount of fabric that is on the train for that dress isn’t so substantial that it will change the weight dramatically, or even noticably.

    So, my opinion? Get the train.

    And By The Way, you don’t look like a sausage. You still look stunning.

    I voted for the train because it sounds like that is what you want and, hey, when else do you get to wear a dress with a train?!  But I don’t think the dress needs a train.  Are you planning to wear a veil?  That might give you the “bridal” look you are after.

    I have that dress with the train, I think it’s better without because you don’t have to bustle it (but I’m biased cause I hate bustles) and it will be easier to deal with in general, and it just looks a little better

    it couldn’t hurt to TRY to exchange it, but if you can’t then just remember all the reasons you didn’t want the train in the first place!  and btw, thats suuuuchhhh a pretty birdcage veil look and will be perfect for your beach dock wedding!

    Personally I love trains (I just love the drama of it). But it sounds like you really loved your dress when you first got it and I think it looks beautiful on you without the train. But if you do choose to get the train you just have to think of whether or not you really want it. From what it sounds like you have more reasons to not have a train then to have one.

    If you still feel the dress is too plain, you can dress it up with jewelry, headpiece and shoes?
