Every brides loves a trail on their dream wedding dress. However, it’s not as simple as opting a 10 metre long train because although it looks incredible, you have to base your judgement on many other factors! There are 6 essential questions you need to ask yourself before the say ‘yes’ to a train.
1. Where Will Your Wedding be Held?
The wedding venue can totally affect your dress choosing decision process. Is it held outdoors, by the beach or in a specific venue? Are there any other hazardous factors to take into consideration (eg. gravel road)? If you are having an outdoor wedding, a train doesn’t work that well because grass stains and sand can be very hard to get off your beautiful fabric.
2. Are You Going to Be the Dancing Queen?
If you love dancing and you’re thinking of getting a long dance session at your reception, you might not want to have a long train. Fortunately for all you dancing brides out there, there is another option- getting a detachable train, or two gowns for your big day!
3. What’s the Dress Code?
Great news to bride who are having a formal wedding! Trains compliment well with a luxurious soiree complete with banquets, drinks and romantic slow dancing. If you’re having a more lively wedding, with cocktail reception and a party, wearing a long train is not the wisest choice.
4. How the Wedding Photos Will be Taken?
Where will you take your wedding pictures? If you are planning on an extravagant backdrop of jungle trekking, desert adventuring and walking though concrete after concrete to the perfect city for your wedding picture, a train can be an arduous task. So although it is possible, a lot of help is needed for the day.
5. What’s the Duration of The Wedding Like?
Traditional wedding can take longer with them starting early in the morning and finishing well into the next day. Having to carry around kilos of exquisite fabric can be very exhausting. Although disheartening news, you can consider a waterfall hemline to lighten the load, or, once again, think about a detachable train.
6. Do You Have Enough Bridesmaids?
A train can be real heavy, and you would need to get your bridesmaids help to carry a train. If you have only one or no bridesmaid, then you should reconsider the option of getting a wedding train!
Simple enough tips, right? La Bride hopes every bride out there can get over their train worries with these simple questions in place. Happy wedding and more trains! (with due consideration!)
