Talking about bridal trains, after you find The One, there’s still one detail to cross off your list: How to wear it?

How do you get down the aisle?
It doesn’t matter if your train is long or short, make sure the wedding planner help you fluff it before you begin to walk down the aisle. Walk slowly, pause before you reach the very last row of seats, giving them time to readjust the train. Then start your walk toward the altar and ask your maid of honor to arrange your train before you stand to read your vows.

How do you dance in a dress with a train?
It might sound difficult to try to dance on the dance floor and tie up or fasten the train, and maybe your caught in the middle because you love the look of a train but you still want to dance with your loved ones, so here comes versatility and the good news is that you don’t have to sacrifice your wedding dress dreams, you can have a dramatic train that is completely detachable for when you’re ready to party. If you haven’t opted for one that’s removable, it could be a great option and you can have a whole new look!
Here are some options

Pins are available in different sizes and designs, you can pin the train up the moment you want to dance. The only drawback is that the wedding dress can be slightly damaged if you wear a wedding dress with fragile fabric such as silk.

You could place a loop at the bottom of the train. Wind it around your wrist or finger for more freedom of movement.

Maybe you choose to have a button in the middle of the train and a loop on the train. This way you can roll up and secure the tow. When the button and thread are transparent or in the same color as the dress you can barely see it’s there.

If your dress is made from a fragile fabric then choose strong magnets. Place the magnets on the inside of your wedding dress and on the tow to bring up the train and make sure the magnets are in the right place. You won’t even notice them. Make sure you practice dancing with your dress on so you know the magnets work well enough to hold your train up.

Hold it up and together

Try to wrap up the train and holding it together when you go dancing to find out if this is a convenient way for you.

In addition, it is useful to practice dancing in your wedding dress. If you take dance lessons, it is useful to perform the dress with a practice dress or your wedding dress.

Plan B: purchase a different dress for the party.

Pro tip: One solution with outdoor weddings (dirt, mud and grass comes to my mind) is to have an aisle runner that you can walk down or have your maid of honor follow behind you and actually carry your train.
