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.

I think its beautiful as it is! The train does not look very long to begin with! I would definitely leave it!  🙂

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