Everything You Need to Know About Your Wedding Dress's Train
Sweep: Around 6-12 inches longer than the rest of the skirt, a sweep train is a subtle way to add an accent to a wedding gown’s skirt. This style is a great choice for brides getting married outdoors and looks fabulous on trumpet or mermaid-style gowns. (The Mary Gown in our Amoretto Collection).
Chapel: A chapel train is between 12 and 18 inches long and is the most common choice for brides. It adds just enough drama to an A-line gown without being too fussy. A chapel train looks beautiful in a ballroom. (The Jupiter Gown in our Pure Goddess Collection).
Cathedral: At 22 or more inches long, cathedral trains are totally formal and great for a black-tie wedding at a dramatic venue. They look beautiful on ball gowns and A-line dresses, or as a Watteau train extending from a column gown. (The Hesta Gown in our Pure Goddess Collection).
Royal or Monarch: The longest of the trains, this option extends a yard or more on the floor (and often requires the assistance of flower girls and bridesmaids to move around). You’ll recognize a monarch train from real life royals. Kate Middleton's train was nine feet. Princess Diana's train was 25 feet in length! (The Ariane Gown in our Amore Mio Collection).
