Customize Your Wedding Look At NYB&G Charlotte
While purchasing two separate wedding gowns is an option for numerous brides, others prefer to focus on a dress that can have multiple looks. New York Bride & Groom of Charlotte has the wedding dresses and accessories you love at affordable prices to suit every budget. Detachable sleeves and detachable trains allow brides to maximize their wedding attire. Discover which bridal train style best suits your needs below:
What Are Common Train Styles, and Why Should You Choose Them?
Sweep: Around six inches longer than the rest of the skirt, a sweep train is a subtle way to add an accent to a wedding gown’s skirt. This style is a great choice for brides getting married outdoors and looks fabulous on trumpet or mermaid-style gowns.
Chapel: A chapel train is between 12 and 18 inches long and is the most common choice for brides. It adds just enough drama to an A-line gown without being too fussy. A chapel train looks beautiful in a ballroom.
Cathedral: At 22 or more inches long, cathedral trains are totally formal and great for a black-tie wedding at a dramatic venue. They look beautiful on ball gowns and A-line dresses, or as a Watteau train extending from a column gown.
Royal or Monarch: The longest of the trains, this option extends a yard or more on the floor (and often requires the assistance of flower girls to get around). You’ll recognize a monarch train from the likes of Kate Middleton (whose train clocked in at nine feet) and Princess Diana (who had a train that was a whopping 25 feet in length).

Eddy K, style SKY166: Beading and lace unite to deliver a sophisticated fit-n-flare wedding dress. V-Neck and spaghetti straps create a stunning bodice full of detail. This Eddy K wedding gown hails from the Sky Collection and is complete with a detachable train. Available colors: Ivory/Ivory or Ivory/Champagne/Nude. Available in multiple sizes.
Which Train Suits Your Style & Venue?
It can be easy to fall in love with a wedding dress style for multiple reasons. The type of train you decide to go with can have a huge impact on your comfort level and your movement. Thankfully, longer trains commonly have a bustle option. However, completely detachable wedding dress trains are highly sought after. They allow the bride to have a more formal silhouette during the ceremony and a separate look for the reception. Get more bang for your buck with detachable options at Charlotte’s favorite bridal salon. Discover more below:
“The train plays such a powerful role, both at the ceremony and at the reception. It can completely transform your bridal look,” says Morilee designer Madeline Gardner, and we can’t help but agree with her.
We all remember that jaw-dropping moment when, on her wedding day in 2011, Kate Middleton stepped out of her Rolls-Royce in Westminster Abbey and, for the first time, the world saw her Alexander McQueen dress which, of course, was absolutely breathtaking. But we would argue that her 9-feet cathedral train was crucial to the entire look—it basically elevated the gown to a royal level. Discover more, compliments of In Style
Eddy K, style SEK1191: This soft Mikado wedding dress creates an elegant, streamlined wedding dress silhouette. Sleek and understated, this gown is belted for extra definition. Complete with illusion netting and a plunging neckline, the detachable train delivers multiple looks. Available colors: Diamond White/Skin. Available in numerous sizes.
Get Down The Aisle & Down On The Dance Floor
Bustle options were at one time the main way to transform a wedding dress. However, they can create a heavy and cumbersome addition to your reception. Many brides even have to ask for help going to the bathroom in order to deal with all of the fabric. If you are not comfortable with this idea, detachable wedding trains can help. Discover more about bustle options below and consider how they may impact your silhouette and your freedom:
If your dress doesn’t have a detachable train, you’ll want to bustle it (gather the fabric at the back of your dress and secure it with buttons or hooks) after the ceremony, so you can move around freely at the reception. As with every element, there are different options to choose from.
This style of bustle is made by raising and securing pieces of the outside of the train to the waistline of the gown.
This simple bustle requires the least amount of buttons (sometimes just one) and matching eyelets to create a little lift to your gown’s train.
This unique bustle is created by tying a series of numbered or coordinated ribbons underneath the gown’s train. On the outside, it looks like an understated fold.
This type is ideal for a gown that already has a series of pickups or tufts on the train. A seamstress can easily create more tufts to blend and shorten the train to floor length. Discover more, compliments of The Knot
