Bridal Train Many brides wonder about the different types of wedding trains and their lengths. We have put together a list that will hopefully clear up your questions! Pictures coming soon!


- SWEEP - This is a shortest type of train. It gently sweeps the floor and is normally only a few inches longer than the gown itself, about 8" to 12" in length.

- COURT - This type of train extends about 3 feet (about 1 yard) from the waist.

- CHAPEL - This tpe of train extends approximately 4 feet (about 1 1/3 yards) from the waist.

- SEMI-CATHEDRAL - This type of train extends approximately 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 feet from the waist.

- CATHEDRAL - This train extends approximately 9 feet (3 yards) from the waist.
