What is the symbolism of a train on a wedding dress?

What is a brush train on a wedding dress?

Can a train be removed from a wedding dress?

The dress is too much; can I remove the train? Absolutely. The dress can be made the same length all around in most cases, sometime very easily and sometimes with a lot more work. Sometimes just taking out the extra layers of crinoline can help get the desired fullness.

How do you walk in a wedding dress on a train?

If your dress is super-full or designed with a train, try not to walk or step backwards (again, you’ll risk ripping the fabric). Instead, reach behind you and delicately lift the back of your skirt with your hand, or enlist the help of an attendant.
