The dress was exhibited and the information was that the train was 5 metres long. However there were problems with it: the 867 (!) glass paillettes in the form of daisies, made by Maison Hurel in Paris and embroidered on the train by Maison Linette in 's-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc) made the train so heavy that the Princess was pulled backwards. A cotton undergarment was added to strenghten the dress and train, to distribute the weight better. Six handles were attached, so that the bridesmaids had a better 'grip' on the heavy veil, with their silk gloves.
