WEDDING DRESS TRAINS

How have you been my lovely people! Good? Amazing?
My weekend was great, It’s was friend’s wedding! Its was a beautiful wedding I must say!

I have been doing my research about wedding gown and now I can talk a little bit about the trains.
Trends have come and gone, if you remember Princess Diana’s gown. So what does one need to know?
According to the wedding encyclopedia, a wedding dress train is the portion of the gown’s skirt that extends behind the dress, trailing along the ground behind the wearer. (Wedding Encyclopedia)
When shopping for my gown I came across these simple explanations that helped me remember which train is which.

1. COURT TRAIN
To remember this type of train, think of a court room. The aisles are very short.

2. CATHEDRAL TRAIN
Again, think of a cathedral building (All saints cathedral if you live in Nairobi). The aisle is very long and in my opinion perfect for the bridal procession.

3. CHAPEL TRAIN
A chapel is smaller than a cathedral meaning the chapel train is shorter than the cathedral train.

4. BLUSH SWEEP TRAIN
Ok, this one is not the size of a brush! I remember it by how it remains part of the dress; it appears to sort of brush the bride’s shoes.

5. WATTEAU TRAIN
This one is the easiest to remember. Think Super Hero! Superman for example. This train attaches from the shoulders.

BI Harusi Tip:
The length of your train is dependent on the theme of your wedding. To ensure that it does not come in the way of enjoying yourself, make sure the height of your dress is taken with the shoes you intend to wear, so you can try it out.

I hope these tips will help you pick the prefect train for your perfect day. Do you have any more tips? I would love to hear from you.

Love,

Joy
