Did you see Kate Middletons dress and train?

I think that girls don’t want to lug around a long heavy train for one hour then pin it up.  MOre than likely the trend is just to have a smaller train.  Also, you see a lot on instances where the veil extends out farther then the train, espeically ones extremely detaileed. But there are still tons of designers with long trains.

It seems like as receptions have gotten bigger and longer, trains have gotten shorter. It makes sense – in our parents’ day, everyone had dinner and danced for an hour. Now it’s an all night event. Who wants to carry around all that fabric?

I’ve tried on about 50+ dresses and only one had a big long train. I hated it, it was heavy and cumbersome. That’s probably why they make less and less of them.

my dress has a chapel length, but I didn’t want a train, so I had a French bustle done and that’s how I’m wearing it on Saturday!

I agree that smaller trains have become more popular. Most of the dresses I tried on had chapel length or even no train! I didn’t even see any with a cathedral. I actually ended up with a sweep train, which surprised me because I have always dreamed of this big long train. But I agree they are just too heavy and cumbersome.

I have a VERY long train and I love it!  It just sucks that I have to bustle it up right after the ceremony 🙁

I have a Semi-Cathedral (in between a Chapel and Cathedral) train, which is probably the same length (but different style) as aloisk57 above.  I have not seen a true Cathedral train in person in the past 10 years or so.  Most dresses now are Chapel length, and a lot of the ruffle dresses are closer to a Sweep train.
