Wedding Dress Train Tips and Tricks

If your wedding dress has a train, there are a few tips you should keep in mind.  A train takes a little extra upkeep, but it’s a beauty, not a burden.

How long do you dare to wear your wedding dress train?  It may take some upkeep, but wearing a train is work the work.  Consider a detachable train so your walking and dancing aren’t hampered.

Oh yeah, you’re going to need an assistant.  From draping your train over the back of your chair when you take a seat, to offering a much needed sprucing during photo shoots, there’s a lot to do.  Designate someone to be “on train duty” to help provide your train’s necessary care.  Usually, this is a full time job, so your maid of honor might be the perfect one for the job.

If the train detaches from your dress, simply hang them separately.  Keep your dress in a  dry cleaning bag, safe and sound.

When storing a dress with an attached train, to maintain a wrinkle free train, you’d need to hang it higher than what your normal closet will allow.  So, unless you’re particularly clever, you may get a few wrinkles.  You can always loosely roll the bottom, which will provide a little relief.
