If you're a bride-to-be who tends to be a bit outside the box, this trend is for you! Today we're talking about unique trains!
Watteau (wat-toe) trains-- Originally, this style train attached specifically to the the shoulder area and draped just to the hem on the dress. Over the past few years this style has evolved slightly to a modified watteau; the modified version is usually very dramatic and can originate from the shoulder, back, or lower back. Often times this style train is detachable.
Panel trains-- Often confused with watteau trains, panel trains are unique from watteau's in that they are longer, and always originate from the natural waist. Panel trains are often added to destination dresses, or favored by brides who like very dramatic trains.
Monarch (royal) trains-- Much less common than the cathedral train, the monarch, or royal, train is by far the most dramatic train of them all. Monarch trains always extend 12+ feet from the waist. This style train is most commonly seen on ballgowns, but has been gaining steam with mermaid and trumpet style dresses. This look is great for the bride who truly wants to make a statement (and has wonderful bridesmaids who don't mind hauling that train around!).
Always remember, you're guests will be looking at the back of you dress for your entire ceremony. You might as well give them something interesting to look at! Even if you don't go with a super dramatic train, make sure you view your dress from behind to make sure you love it as much as the front!
We LOVE a unique train and are so excited for this new trend! Happy shopping!!
