Photo: LirettePhotography/Though dresses with full and spread out trains are gorgeous in their own right, they aren't for everyone. The good news is, you can go formal without pulling that train around all day? So what are your options if you like a real formal look? If the dress you have your heart set on has a train wear it bustled. In fact, some brides love the bustling effect (train tacked up and under) and prefer to keep that French 'Gigi' look going the whole day rather than letting it flow. Another option is any formal to-the-floor dress, a full bell skirt without a train like the allover Chantilly lace above, a particularly beautiful choice.
Above: Formal length silk dupioni and Chantilly lace A-line has plenty of back interest and drama without bustling or train . . .
Above is a side view of a bustled gown a la 1960s with a bell skirt. Go ahead and show off the beautiful effect of bustling all day long if you want . . .

Here's the perfect example of a bride who opted for a long and flowing cathedral-style veil to act as a train . . . .

I´m one of those whom dresses with long train aren´t meant for. I think it will overwhelm me. I actually adore wedding dresses without trains. In fact, I went for a short dress for my wedding dress.
love all of these, cant decide! :) Happy Monday hun xx
Perfect timing - my newly engaged friend is looking for a gown that is just floor length. Lovely picks!
