I'll agree, dresses with full and spread out trains can be beautiful but aren't every bride-to-be's cup of tea. The good news is, you can go formal without pulling that train around all day? So what are your choices if you like a high dress look but want to skip the train? If the dress you have your heart set on does have a train wear it bustled. In fact, some brides love the bustling effect (train tacked up and under like the one below) 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 like the one directly below made out of gorg fabric certainly makes up for having train and/or bustling going on .

Below: Ballet Length ball gowns (just above the ankles) show off pretty shoes and allow for easy movement .
