yes its so hard. the seamstress said she can make the train smaller the dress alfred angelo 2379 . the seamstress and mother in law both said it looks amazing with the train..im really not sure ..i love the front of the dress and i feel confident with it i just feel when i turn around and see the train that it may be over the top:/ i am having a sash made and wearing some blue heels with some bling on them..

When else are you ever going to have the opportunity to wear a dress with a train? :wink: Go with it.

I think your dress looks beautiful with the train in the photo! It's good with the bustling that you have the option to wear the train during the ceremony and for photos then maybe bustle it up if you feel it's too much for the reception?

Really you have the best of both worlds with a train that can be hooked up later.

your dress is stunning, if you dont want the train then just have your dressmaker remove it :)

Oh goodness, I just clicked your images and felt a sense of deja vu! Maree Baker is doing my alterations also and I had my bridesmaids take photos of me in those same directions!

I'm 5'4" and my train is about the same length as yours, I turn around when it's fully out and think gosh that's a lot of train! I'm having it so I can hook it up as a bustle so I can have it out during the ceremony and photos, and then up it's going to go! I couldn't imagine spending the entire day with it out. Having the bustle gives you the option to change your mind at the last minute; when you're in the dress and dolled up you might have a moment of clarity and know which way you want to go. Completely removing the train removes that option.

I agree. You can keep the dress bustled up all day (and night) if you don't want a train. But if it is cut off, you can't change your mind later on.

thanks ladies. i think i need to try it on again and see .... if i had it with a train i would keep it busseled the whole time.. my only concern is that when it is up does it make your bottom look big? my other option is to have the train reduced in size so it isnt that big but still is a small train... just have to have a think about it i guess.:) thanks for your suggestions

hmm. i am seriously considering having the train reduced in size. i guess it dosn't matter what i do i still feel a bit lost sometimes but i guess thats because i have never worn a dress like this before and never will again...:) also i wanted to get a sash to wear does anyone have any suggestions of where is a good lace to purchase them online or brisbane area. i am going to book another appointment with Maree soon so that we can make this decision.

Get the dressmaker to make the sash when she does your alterations.
