Wedding Dress Trains

The most memorable wedding dresses are often those with stunning trains… We all remember Kate Middleton’s dress, largely because of the spectacular long train she wore on her wedding day.

The Duchess of Cambridge followed a tradition upheld by her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, whose wedding dress train was the longest in royal wedding history at almost eight metres long!

Wedding Dress Trains

Wedding dress trains work well with many styles of dress, from sumptuous wedding dresses with full skirts, to something altogether more understated and slender with soft elegant lines… Train lengths can also vary considerably from the shorter ‘sweep‘ to full-blown ‘cathedral’ styles.

What transforms a wedding dress is not just the style of train but how you move in your dress. The length of the train will force you to turn, walk and dance a little differently, but wearing it will make you feel like a princess bride as your train gloriously swishes behind you.

It is, however, important that you control and master your train, rather than let it control you and your movements!

One great tip is to wear your dress a couple of times at home in the days before your wedding to familiarise yourself with it. Try to practise walking, turning and even walking up and down steps, just to see how it moves and how it hampers or alters your movements.

When you sit down try to follow the lines of the skirt and bring your train around to the left or right. Don’t worry, it’s much easier than it looks, especially with a little practise!

Remember that your bridesmaids are also there to help you, so enlist their help when you want to sit down or when you want your train beautifully arranged for your walk up the aisle – and for your wedding photos too!

If you choose to wear a veil, make sure it compliments the train, always opt for a light tulle to avoid hampering you as you move in your dress.
