Anyone ever chop their wedding dress at the knees for the a later reception? As in 6 months later? We were married in November out of town and have a reception coming up in June. I am deciding between altering the original dress drastically, or just having the train removed. I never liked the train dragging around or bustled, but it came with the dress. I'm pretty accident prone, so the shorter the better!
I really like this dress, and am lucky to get to wear it twice.
We're not a very formal crowd...
But I don't love how the bustle looks like I'm pooping a triangle:
I'm bold and would love to chop it into a cocktail dress, but don't want to miss having a long dress at the "formal" reception.
Any one reading this ever re-purposed their dress into a shorter one?
