How long you dare to wear a train? The length of the train will force you to walk and waltz a little differently, but wearing it will have you feeling like the princess bride as the train gloriously swishes behind you. You need to consider whether the train will be a separate piece of fabric that is detachable or will it be the same piece of fabric just an extension of your wedding dress.If you choose a train of heavy fabric, the first thing a bride and her bridesmaids must do is to learn how to bustle the train efficiently and gracefully. If you don't want to bustle your train, then have a detachable train fixed to your wedding dress with buttons, hooks, loops or snaps.
It may have taken 100 years, but the short wedding dress style made famous by fashion icon Coco Chanel is back, and better than ever. After the ceremony, you can choose a short dress, or buy a detachable train wedding dress at the first - a convertible wedding dress long to short with or without the train.The definition of short can vary as offerings from just above the ankle, while the bridal gowns available from just above or just below the knee. Some styles are even cut mid-thigh.Wearing a knee- or ankle-length gown can make moving around that much easier. If you're planning on dancing the night away then something that won't catch around your feet could be a safer option. One undeniable bonus of wearing a short wedding dress is that you can wear it out - as in, wear it more than once and make the most of owning something so stunning! With the option of dressing it up with heels and up-dos or down with flats, loose curls and jackets, the shorter wedding dress can be a versatile wardrobe staple. Fashion houses around the world are offering their versions of the short wedding dress, with big names like Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta and Jim Hjelm all sending this style of gown down the runway.Just think about the short and sweet Chanel couture dress actress Keira Knightley wore for her wedding in May this year.
Finally, with or without train, it's up to you, but remember to choose at least one short style.
