I’m torn on having a train or not. At first I was all for the train but after seeing so many sans-train gowns, I’m rethinking it. I know it’s supposed to depend on how formal your wedding is, but it seems everyone’s just doing what they like nowadays anyway (which is GREAT)! But I’m wondering about how many of your dresses do have trains, if so, which one?

I was totally obsessed with the idea of a train. I figured it was the only day in my life I’d get to wear one. In the end, my bustle ripped out–twice, we managed to fix it once–and I ended up carrying my dress all night. It was fine, but it also kind of bugged me. In the end, I wonder if I would have been just as happy with a beautiful no-train dress (since my dress came with other drama too…)

well my dress is short, so no, it doesn’t have a train. personally, if i had a long dress, i might want a little train. i think they’re pretty.

Our ceremony is outdoors and I didn’t want a train out of fear of dragging leaves, grass clippings and creepy-crawly creatures along wherever I went! Also I have to get on and off of a trolley before the ceremony and the less I have to worry about ripping/tearing, the better off I know I will be. I would do a train if I were having a church wedding though, definitely.

Outdoor wedding, and for what (my mom) is paying, I don’t like the idea of dragging it around in the dirt and grass.
And I’m just not that kind of girl. The idea of a wedding veil freaks me out. Birdcage with fabulous hat, yes! Anything that is reminiscent of the blushing virgin being given away…need not apply.

When I was younger I pictured having a train, but now that I’m actually getting married I avoided one completely in planning the design. Sure they look and feel elegant, regal, and romantic, and I am planning a floor length dress, but as I’m getting married on the beach and additionally intend to dance my butt off, a train seemed a bit much (more than just impractical!). Plus, I saw images of dresses that had an opening up the back with another full skirt level exposed beneath which I completely fell in love with!

I didn’t want a train, but I ended up getting a sweep. Finding a dress was so difficult, that once I finally found one that met most of my criteria the train didn’t seem like a big deal. Plus, I figure I’ll bustle it after the first half hour anyway 😉

At first I really wanted a train, but the more I considered it, and then when we decided to move our reception to an outdoors venue, I think I will be going with a small sweep train. I will be wearing a long veil though 🙂 I love the whispy way it looks!

I absolutely did not want a train. 1) outdoor wedding = dirty disgusting train 2) I don’t like bustles (sorry bustle lovin’ ladies!) 3) it’s way too formal for what we’re having. I totally get the love of the dramatic look though! They are pretty.

Hailll yeah my dress has a train! When else am I going to be able to wear a dress with a train?! Plus I love bustles 🙂 PS I totally had to google all the train names to see what each one was – I voted for chapel.
