    I argee with your Mum, only the bride has a train. I actually think it’s a bit weird you would want your Maid/Matron of Honor to have one.

    I think it depends on how formal your ceremony is going to be. My sister got married in a very old, formal, traditional Catholic church. We (her bridesmaids) had small trains, and I think it looked really nice. As long as she has a simple bustle, I don’t think there’s any problem with it. If you are having a more informal ceremony though..I wouldn’t.

    I can’t imagine not being a bride and having a train.

    I also know that if I had a dress with a train as a bridesmaid, I would probably never wear that dress again.

    Just my two cents.

    @Kewii:  That is very true. I have never worn the dress again. I’ve considered shortening it..but haven’t gotten around to it. lol

    I don’t think there’s a rule where the bride is the only one who wears a train. Pippa’s dress from the Royal Wedding had a small train.  I think it’d be dramatic especially since she’s your Maid/Matron of Honor and only attendant!

    My MOH’s dress had a small train. Honestly, we didn’t even realize it until the dress was being altered so it was too late by then but it really didn’t matter to me anyway. The train on her dress was nowhere close to the train on my dress. Frankly, my Maid/Matron of Honor looked beyond gorgeous and her having an extra yard or so of fabric attached to her dress didn’t detract from mine at all. If you love the dress then go for it.

    If the wedding was all indoors, the train was small, and she was okay with it, fine. But it sounds like it’s a garden wedding, the train is too short to bustl. (so it will drag on the ground/get stepped on during the reception), and she can probably never wear it again unless she has it altered. Resounding no from me. Add a poll!

    My prom dress had a small train and it was beyond annoying. If you really want her to have one, I would make sure there’s a way to bustle it so people aren’t stepping on it all night.

    I could go either way about the train. I would leave it up to A, whether or not your Maid/Matron of Honor wants to own an evening dress with a train and B, how difficult it is to construct since your mom is making the dress.
