I have purchased my wedding gown (yeah!) and it comes in July. I’m struggling with what to do about the train. This is not my first wedding AND I’m getting married in a small church (five steps to the aisle pretty much). I’m thinking of having no train at all since that way I won’t have to bustle it later. But will that look weird? Like some bizarre wedding prom dress?
The dress is Maggie Sottero Pamela. This is with it’s full train. I am also planning on re-selling the dress when I am done and am wondering if anyone would buy a dress with no train? I will be wearing a small birdcage veil. Besides my kick ass dress, the rest of our wedding is totally casual. 🙂 Thanks so much,

I think your dress has what I would call a shorter train already, though maybe that’s just me. 🙂 I can understand your reasons for being unsure about leaving the train the way it is, but I do think it’s beautiful like that. If it makes you more comfortable, I think it would be fine to hem the train and just have it one length all around, though the train makes it look more bridal. I think you should do what will make you feel comfortable and like a bride on your wedding day, that’s what matters! 🙂

I would just have it bustled during both ceremony and reception. It’ll keep it short so it doesn’t run the length of your aisle and it’ll be a little more casual than a full train. I don’t think it would take anything away from the dress or make it look like a weird prom dress:) If you are going to resell it I think you should keep the train so it gives the buying bride that option.

I like the train the way it is, especially for resale. It doesn’t look very long. I think it will make you feel more like a bride w/ the train even if it is your second wedding 🙂

I like it just the way it is. You could have it bustled if you wanted.

Your train isn’t very long, so if it were me, I would keep it, and then just buslte it after the ceremony. It will be easier to sell with the train.

Thanks everyone! I think I will leave it as is since I am planning on re-selling it.

Keep the train, the dress won’t drape the same without it!
