What is a Wedding Gown Train?

Bridal Dress Singapore
A wedding gown train is the extension of your gown that adds a touch of formality and elegance to the overall look of your dress. Trains are a common part of gowns that are meant to be used for formal gatherings or events. Back in the day, the length of wedding gown trains are symbols of social statuses. The longer the train, the higher your social status was. Consequently, in the modern age, trains are an integral part of wedding gowns.

Wedding gown trains may extend for up to nine feet from your waist and can be detachable too, depending on your preferences. At Z Wedding bridal shop, we have incorporated trains into our wedding and evening gowns seamlessly to create gorgeous gowns for our beautiful brides.
