I’m assuming you mean a train.  If you’re the bride and like the look, I don’t see why not.  It might be a little annoying to risk being stepped on all night, but I’d do it for a good friend.

If you’re the bride or the bride approves, no reason why not.  That dress is gorgeous, too!

I don’t see why not — it’s definitely more suited for a black tie occassion though, but if your wedding is fancy enough…

@Cheekyduck:  As long as youe ok with it, I don’t see why not. However, if your wedding dress has a train, then it will be very annoying if they have to pick up their own train as well as yours. My poor bridesmaids took turns carrying my train around for photos because I couldn’t bend over it to pick it up.

I could personally only see that dress in a really high class wedding. But its your wedding, and if you’re okay with it then I dont see why they couldnt wear them.

@Cheekyduck:  If it’s a custom made dress and you only like the lace aspect, then get them to make the dress without the train. Problem solved 🙂

That dress is so pretty!  I think it’s totally up to you and if they agree on it, do it!

Haha this thread is way more tame than I thought it would be!

To get back on track, yes, BMs can have small trains. My dress in a previous wedding did, and it was gorgeous.
