The sweep train is a great choice for an outdoor or casual wedding or for indoor brides who want a simpler look. This is the shortest of the wedding dress trains and brushes about six inches along the floor. Plus, if you opt for a sweep train, you don’t have to worry about a bustle either!

The Watteau train would be ideal for a destination or outdoor wedding. This train attaches to the top of the dress at the shoulders or upper-back and gives gowns a more dramatic look. This is another hassle-free train as the bride can remove it after the ceremony for the reception.
