    I’ve heard polyester doesn’t dye. Go for the colored crini though!

    I love the idea as I am having a purple one made as well. But I honestly think that you already know what you want. Me personally I would go dark purple, one of my wedding colors and long enough to peek out.

    I am doing colored tulle under my dress, which is being altered to tea length.  My alterations girl said that unless I did at least 1/2 inch LONGER than the hem of my dress, it really wouldn’t show – even when I walked…. and that’s with tea length…. so with a longer dress I would go at least an inch longer.

    I also like the bold purple idea.  Fun!

    This is the petticoat I purchased from this bride…

    I had my dress fitting last night & it just didn’t work under my dress… so the seamstress took off the bottom layer of crinoline from this petticoat & attached it to the top layer of crinoline my dress has already built in. I tried it longer than the hem & then shorter… I decided on shorter. 

    Like you said you want it to be a splash of color… not too in your face.

    This was more lilac then I wanted, but when it was underneath my diamond white dress holy heck it was awesome.

    Here is my dress…

    And here are my shoes…
