All Aboard! Custom and Detachable Trains by Lauren Elaine Bridal

No comments



A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event. And a once-in-a-lifetime event deserves a once-in-a-lifetime gown.  So it’s no wonder that trains are the most requested and customized wedding gown feature by our brides.

Historically, trains were added to wedding gowns as a show of wealth and status. The longer and more extravagant the train, the more prominent the bride (and bride’s family.)  In Elizabethan times, wealthy brides and royalty even incorporated jewels and woven gold thread into their trains – sometimes making their gowns too heavy for a walk down the aisle.

This historic trend continues today…because in reality, it’s the one event in a girl’s life where a cathedral (or any length!) train just feels right. Whether it’s one foot or ten, a train offers the extra pomp and circumstance worthy of that ‘I do’ moment. And to ensure the perfect modern train length and fullness for any venue or taste, Lauren Elaine wedding dresses offer fully customizable trains.

Most popular, our tulle mermaids offer fully detachable trains, customizable in length up to 12ft.  These beauties can also incorporate lace petals and sparkling details (check out our “Epiphany” style with crystal lace and horsehair petals!)

More of a ball gown bride? Create your ultimate royal moment with a detachable train like our “Serendipity” style. Our mermaid trains attach at the thigh line, while our ball gowns attach at the waist – each option adding extra fullness and drama to preference.  And when your walk down the aisle is sealed with a kiss, each option easily removes for a twirl-worthy, reception-appropriate frock.
