Oooh… great question!  I’m in the same boat but hadn’t yet thought to ask about this!

If it’s dry….what’s the problem? If the grass is wet, obviously your dress’ll get soaked. Let’s face it, the bottom of your dress WILL get dirty! And your veil, if it’s longer than your dress, will either drag or float behind you, depending on the weather.

I say don’t worry about it, cuz you’ll never wear it again and likely it won’t get crazy filthy enough that it can’t be edited a little in photos, made unnoticeable, or attention detracted from it.

Don’t wear heels. It’s just not practical on grass no matter the length of the dress… I’ve had quite a few outdoor weddings with trains… it usually isn’t much different.

lace and tulle will pick up leaves, twigs, and other things… but you can pick them out after 🙂

your dress will be fine. i just wore a long dress with a train to a gala that was outdoors.  beside people steping on it, it was no problem catching on the grass or getting super dirty or anything like that.  your veil will probably catch a bit on the grass, so make sure that thing is super secure on your head and you’ll be fine.

I have seen a couple aisle runners go down in the grass, I would not recommend them unless it’s a thick mat material!!

What about train attendants? We have 3 flower girls right now and we may have 2 of them (7 & 8) who would be perfect to help cary it down the way? Is that possible?
