Wedding dress trains add a touch of elegance to any beautiful wedding dress. Determining which train style will look best with your gown can be challenging as there are many styles to choose from. Of course, you want to make sure your train compliments the style of your dress beautifully. Some other details to take into consideration when choosing your train include the location of your wedding and the wedding style. Will your wedding be traditional, extravagant, or simple? The style of your train should compliment your gown as well as the style of your wedding day. We love these gorgeous examples of some of the most popular styles of trains from Alexandra Grecco, Tara Lauren, Julie Vino, Morilee, and Moonlight Bridal.
The sweep train is a great choice for an outdoor or casual wedding, or for indoor brides who want a more simple look. This is the shortest style of wedding dress train and brushes about six inches along the floor. If you choose a sweep train, a bustle is not necessary for your bridal look.
The Watteau train is ideal for destination or outdoor weddings. The train attaches to the top of the dress at the shoulders or upper-back and gives the gown a more dramatic look. Like the Sweep train, this is another hassle-free option as the bride can remove the train after the ceremony for the reception.
The Chapel train is the most popular style of trains for brides. It is a fabulous choice for brides who do not want an extremely dramatic look but still want to make a statement. The Chapel train extends about five feet from the waist.
The Cathedral train is ideal for the bride who wants all eyes on her at an indoor, formal wedding. This style of train is beautiful, but keep in mind that it measures about six or seven feet behind the waist and will require some assistance. Your bridesmaids can help with keeping the train in order during pictures and the ceremony and bustling.
