    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…)

    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. Embarassed

    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.
