Semi-Formal Wedding Dresses
Trains are optional. If one is used, a length of 1 to 2 feet (half a meter) is often used. Sleeves may be short or long. The waltz length train is from the hem dress. As a rule, the bride’s veil is shoulder to fingertip.
Informal Wedding Dresses
These dresses usually resemble cocktail attire, these are usually hemmed from the knee down to mid-calf. Lace trim or heading may be used. Beaded chiffon, shantung, satin and fabric may be used. Veils are usually not worn with informal dresses. Flowers or other hair accessories are worn instead.
