What's the difference between 'pulling' and 'dragging'?

Both involve the effort needed to move something or someone from one position to another. The moving of that thing or person is usually thought of as pulling, which may include sliding, moving on wheels, or towing with a vehicle, for example.



"dragging" us usually thought of as moving a thing or person in the same way, but the difference is that in dragging, there is resistance because whatever is being moved is on the ground, isn't usually easily moved, and that makes moving it more difficult.

So does for grooms, the bottom hem of their dresses will drag or pull along the floor behind them, please?

I think you mean brides. Their dresses might "drag" along the floor if they are long. She moves forward but her dress drags along behind her.

However, if she has a long train, she might have some help.
