Q: I want to wear a wedding dress with a train. Do I have to choose a ball gown or is there another option?

A: Ball gowns with trains are a classic, but you certainly have other choices. Opt for a slim column with either a Watteau (which attaches to the shoulders) or a detachable train or look for a modified A-line dress with a chapel-length style trailing behind.
