So you’re engaged and over that first wave of excitement! Now’s the time to sit down and start thinking about your actual wedding. Choosing your wedding dress is one of the most exciting, emotional, and frustrating parts of planning your wedding. There are just so many options. Deciding whether to have a train or not have a train is a big decision so to help, we’ve compiled a variety of our favorite dresses from our brides over the years. Some have trains, some do not, some are short and some are long. Hopefully, this will help some of you narrow down your endless search for the perfect wedding dress.
Something about this gorgeous lace has us totally transported back to the day our lovely bride, Nicole ( a different Nc, first put it on. The transparency and delicate lace train creates such an air of romance and allows the train to be a bit larger without overwhelming Nicole’s smaller frame.
If you still want the length, but don’t necessarily want the train, take a look at our bride, Sarah, and her gorgeous gown. It reaches the floor but not include a train. If you’re getting married somewhere outside, the no-train option may be for you as it will be very difficult to keep your train clean when walking through the dirt or grass.
Maybe you want something a little different or spunky. Our bride, Molly, shows us that brides can absolutely wear a 2-piece wedding dress. This fun ensemble should be reserved for those brides that want to break away from tradition!
For brides that want to keep a little tradition but don’t necessarily want a full-length gown, this lace midi gown worn by our bride, Sara, is the perfect mix of elegant, formal and semi casual.
Our bride, Megan, is seen here in a satin long-sleeved mini dress and she is totally rocking it! This wedding was fairly intimate and the bride and groom actually surprised their guests with a secret ceremony! We think this gown was the perfect choice for such a special, out-of-the box wedding.
The World’s Longest Train
Have you guys ever seen the world’s longest train? Back in 2017, a bride walked down the aisle with 1.85 miles of train behind her, breaking the previous record of .74 miles. 15 volunteers spent 2 months stitching this together, which also included pieces of the train from the previous record. It was unveiled in Caudry, France, which couldn’t be more perfect seeing as their are known for their production of beautiful lace. And don’t worry about waste, after being photographed, this train was cut into pieces, sold, and all the money was donated to charities.
