    My wedding is going to be pretty informal, and conventionally, I should probably be wearing a soft, flowy, trainless dress… however, the dress I fell in love with is a sparkly, trumpet silhouette, with a train, lol. Oh well! When I tried it on, I knew it was the one, so that’s the one I’m gonna wear!

    im torn on the idea of trains.  on the one hand when else do you ever get to wear a dress with a train?  but then again wouldnt it get dirty being dragged around?

    The really great thing about being the bride is that you can be as dressed up as you want to be even if the event itself isn’t all that formal. You are afterall, the BRIDE, so people expect you to be a gussied up. Don’t worry about the formality of the affair, just worry about finding a dress that makes you feel pretty and makes you happy!

    I’m not wearing a train to my informal wedding, but not because it’s informal, just because I don’t like trains!

    If you like it and it is part of the ‘bridal experience’ for you, keep it!

    The only hesitation I would have is if you’re getting married on a beach or something where the train might make it difficult to walk.

    It is totally up to you! Seriously, I’ve been to weddings where it was informal and the bride was completely decked out in lace, train, and veil. Other formal weddings the bride’s attire was much more low key and everything in between. Wear what makes you happy!

    I added extra length to my dress to make it just short of a train that doesn’t need the page boys… It’s a cathedral train and I love it!
