The term 'train' refers to the long piece of material that extends along the ground behind the Bride and trails behind her.


A train is a completely optional element to a Wedding dress. Some gowns do not feature a train at all, whilst those that do can sometimes be altered to remove one if that is your preference. Alternatively, a skilled seamtress may be able to incorporate a train into a gown of your choosing, though, if you are planning on going down this route, we would strongly advise that you confirm this up front.


A train itself will vary in length and it is entirely down to the Bride's preference as to what she chooses. As a general rule of thumb, the longer the train, the more dramatic it's appearance though the less practical it is for the wearer. With this in mind, the remainder of this article outlines the three most popular trains available. 


Puddle or sweep train


The puddle, or sweep, train is quite short in length, and falls very close to where the skirt touches the floor.


As a short train, it is the most practical of those outlined in this article. During the day, and particularly on an evening, this length of train will give little for the Bride to worry about and will rarely get in the way even when the serious celebrating begins.


Occasionally, some dress designers will make detachable trains of this length - such a train will complement a column dress profile perfectly.
