7 Different Types of Wedding Dress Trains

A wedding train can add that extra something to your wedding dress. A wedding gown with a train is always super romantic - not for everyone but if you've always dreamed of a fairytale wedding gown then you need a train.

7 types of wedding trains

Here's a guide to the 7 different types of wedding dress trains you can have.

#1. Sweep/Brush Train

If you like the idea of a train but you want something that's not too formal then a sweep or brush train could be for you. It extends around one-and-a-half feet from the waist to the end of the dress.

#2. Court Train

The court wedding train is slightly longer than the sweep/brush, it runs approximately 3 feet behind the bride, and it can be worn at most ceremonies.

#3. Panel Wedding Train

Great for the indecisive bride, the panel train is just a panel of fabric, around a foot wide and can be as long or short as a court of chapel train. Usually it's detachable too.

#4. Watteau Wedding Train

Lovely and simple, a soft train that sits at the shoulder and falls to where the dress ends. Dresses with a watteau train.

#5. Chapel Train

The chapel wedding train is a very popular train, the chapel train is between three-and-a-half to four-and-a-half feet from the waist, it provides a happy medium for the bride beause of its simplicity. The chapel wedding train provides a statement of its own and it can be worn at a formal or informal ceremony.

#6. Cathedral Train

The cathedral wedding train is worn for more formal church weddings. The cathedral train extends six-and-a-half to seven-and-a-half from the waist and has a very dramatic effect. This train will require assistance at the wedding ceremony and reception.

#7. Monarch/Royal

A show-stopping train, the monarch, also called Royal Train, can be 12 feet or longer from the waist. Because of its length you will need page boys or flower girls to hold it when you walk – but that all adds to the drama!
