Did You Know? - Trains in modern (20th and 21st century) bridal wear have their own terminology:
- Cathedral train - also known as a monarch train, this can measure up to eight feet (2.4 metres). A royal cathedral train is considered the longest, most formal train, measuring up to ten feet (3 metres) or more.
- Chapel train - a medium length train up to five feet (1.1 to 1.5 metres) long
- Court train - in bridal terminology, a court train is a narrow train extending 1 metre behind.
- Sweep train - a short train that does not necessarily reach the floor. It is so called because it might just sweep the ground
- Watteau train - a modern version of the pleated backs (called 'Watteau pleats') seen in 18th century sack-back gowns.
