Like every other element to a wedding dress, there are many different styles of trains. It’s the elongated back of the gown that makes the most impact when walking down the aisle—whether your train is short or sweeping back long behind you, it’s important to know the various types. We’ve got you covered!



Also known as a “brush,” this train extends just along the ground where the fabric hits the floor. A sweep train is subtle, yet romantic.  This length is good for a more casual wedding.


The court train extends about 35-45cm from the base of the ground where the fabric hits the floor.   This length is very elegant and looks fantastic on slimline gowns.  A court train can't be bustled, so care needs to be taken of it so that nobody stands on it.


One of the more popular train options, a chapel train extends about 1.5m from the waistline.  This train can be bustled for your reception.


This formal style extends 2-2.5m from the waistline and has a dramatic feel making it perfect for a traditional, formal or church wedding.  This train can be bustled for your reception.


Also known as “royal” train, this very formal style flows 3.5m or more from the waist.


The detachable train can be removed after the ceremony.  The train is normally attached around the waist as a belt, or at a single point on the back, or waistline of the gown.
