I was going to say the same, I thought I saw the same episode, I loved that she was still able to have a train! =) Best of Luck to you in your search! Congrats! And Im a Dec. 18th 2011 Bride, and ordered my dress in late July so its NEVER too early, plus it can take up to 6-8 months to get your dress in!

I’m not in a wheelchair, but I was thinking sheath dress too.  That story is so amazing!!  I love the idea of the train on the back of the chair.  Heres a link to a youtube video of a bride and grooms first dance, where the bride is in a wheelchair.  It’s so beautiful!  Made me tear up a little.  The dip at the end is my favorite!

I saw that episode of SYTTD and she looked very elegant going down the aisle with the train that was attached to her wheelchair..

Definitely a sheath dress, for it won’t be so bulky. I love that short dress in the Offbeat Bride piece! 

Saja makes dresses that lack the poof you might want to avoid. The dresses, however do not have trains (I don’t like trains or poof, hence I was drawn to Saja.)

@amariem25:  I saw that episode too.  I loved the chair train.  A cathedral veil is also a great way to rock the train (if that’s your thing) in your chair.

I can imagine an empire waisted dress with poufy light fabric would look really glorious sitting down…I think it would flow beautifully around the front of your chair and show off your figure without bunching or rising up out of your lap like a lower waisted full skirt might.

This dress that I nearly got for myself was is what I was seeing:

I have a friend who is in a wheelchair and she got a mirmaid style so that she had the flairy ballgown look she wanted w/o all the fabric under her and in her lap. It looked stunning! She even wore a cathedral length veil because she had always wanted a train but since she obviously couldn’t do that she had a “head train” as she jokingly called it. I wish I had pictures of her on my computer. She looked amazing!

This was actually her dress
