    Idk if this helps, but I bought my dress used from someone who had an outdoor wedding on a cliff (it looked muddy/rocky). She took pictures with her dress laid out but it looks like (from the wedding album she send me) they carried the train everywhere they could.  The underside (from a picture late in her album where she is showing her reception shoes) got quite stained, but it never showed through the top of the dress, if that makes sense. She had is professionally cleaned and preserved, and I thoroughly examined it when I got it. I think I found maybe three small barely visible stains? Absolutely none when the dress is laid out all pretty. And the girls with me when I was trying it on could not see any of the stains unless they really had their faces in the dress. Here is a pic of the train, on me, when I’m trying on the dress. You can see there are no stains visible

    My godsister got married in a white ballgown without a huge train, but with a huge amount of fabric on the ground. By the time the ceremony and pictures were done, she had visible dirt on the botton 2 inches of her dress. Did I care or really even notice that much? Nope. It only became apparent when she lifted the front of her dress to walk up some stairs. She is reselling her dress, so I’m assuming the stains disappeared.
