Generally speaking, ball gown wedding dresses is more formal than wedding dresses with other silhouettes. However, some brides want to stand out the more about the formality of their wedding ceremonies. Then they may resort to appropriate trains to achieve a more formal look. Sweep train and chapel train somewhat add the elegant touch for the wedding dress but may not be so successful in standing out the formality, which may be only suitable for some wedding ceremonies in small churches. Monarch train is sacred and formal enough but not very convenient. For a solemn cathedral wedding ceremony, ball gown wedding dress with cathedral train will be top choices.
Cathedral train reaches about 6.5 to 7.5 feet, which is more solemn than sweep or chapel train but more convenient than a royal train. Such a long train will make the ball gown wedding dress more sacred and formal, which is just perfect for a cathedral wedding. Of cause, you can decorate the cathedral train with some fashionable embellishments to add eye-catching appeal for the ball gown wedding dress. Elegance, formality, and fashion can be shown at the same time.
