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.

According to the information about the Royal Wedding Dresses exhibition at the website of the Royal Court of Sweden, crown princess Victoria's train was 4,6 metres long, and princess Madeleine's train 4 metres long.
