Your train doesn’t look quite long enough for a wrist loop. I’m worried if you raise up your hand, the loop would bring up the dress in the back too much. Have you looked into a bustle? The lace looks delicate but since there’s no lining in that area, it could be light enough to bustle. Similar to:

Agree your train doesn’t look long enough to wear it on the wrist. You can do a simple bustle with a button at calf-length, and a small white ribbon loop sewn to the train. 

Also, I read on the bee that a wrist loop should only be done if you’re going to dance a waltz. Seems a little stiff, but it makes perfect sense, why make the alteration if you’re not prepared to show it off?

Your train doesn’t look long enough for a wrist loop.  My train was five metres long and I had a wrist loop because I didn’t like the look of a bustle

You know, l think l would just let it be. It is not a huge train and looks light . I don’t like any bustles really so l’m biased .

Maybe it’s just  the pic but the bottom of the skirt looks unlined ( like a mini dress under a long overdress) which would mean a wrist loop, which l’d normally prefer, would leave you kind of exposed at the back. Hopefully l’m seeing it wrong and it is properly lined .

I’d just pick it up and carry it , that always looks kind of glamorous to me!
