    I dont understand the lingo for the lengths of the train and have tried to google search but they all tell me different names for the same lengths. Does anyone know or have a web link to the exact name for each length. I like the chapel length it shows and not the cathedral length because that would be too much for me but im after something in between both of them please. Thank you :)

    Sweep: A small swish of a train that trails about six inches on the floor. This style (sometimes also called a "brush" train) is a good choice for outdoor brides who want a touch of glamour without too much fabric dragging on the ground, or indoor brides who prefer something more simple and low-key.

    Chapel: A train that extends 12 to 18 inches along the floor and is slightly longer than the sweep. This is the most common style — it's great for brides who want a more serious train without a lot of fuss. The overall look is elegant without being too heavy.

    Cathedral: This train extends 22 or more inches along the floor and gives the dress a much more formal look. Cathedral-style gowns usually have a removable train or bustling option.

    Semi-Cathedral: A train that is halfway between chapel and cathedral length.

    Royal or Monarch: A train that extends a yard or more on the floor. It's the most dramatic option and often requires assistance from a flower girl. Princess Diana wore a 25-foot train, while Kate Middleton's train was just under nine-feet long.

    Maybe wait till you have seen the dress you want, I had a idea of what I wanted but when I tried the one I bought on it is totally different. Have told H2B it is green with pink spots and lots of meringue and underskirts haha! Not sure if he believes me though!

    I knew very little about train lengths and just tried lots of dresses with different lengths on until I decided which I was most comfortable with.
