anothernewbee16 : It’s hard to tell in the picture but the bottom is sort of ombre into the matching ivory color as the top. But I could choose the same color if I wanted to since it’s being made.
I though of selling it but there a few listed for sale so I doubt it’d go for much if anything. And the skirt is part of a dress that is $2500 and I hate the top.

Omggg please don’t change your original skirt! It is so gorgeous on you! The tulle skirt and original bodice also look great, but I just love how unique the first skirt is and don’t think the tulle skirt is as special, sorry.

Kir474 : Gotta say that I love the look of the top of dress #1 with the bottom of dress #2 (though I wouldn’t combine blush with the off-white). You look amazing in both dresses…at this point it’s just personal preference for me as I tend to gravitate toward the more romantic style skirts than the super textured ones. But seriously…you look amazing in both 🙂

gwenchilada : Thge sample in the original picture is different thatn this…my current one. It just hangs wrong and doesn;t sway like the sample….

I think the skirt of your dress #1 is amazing and fun! Do you have any more pics of your dress now that it has come in? It’s hard to tell much from just the one photo. Also, did you try trying it on with a veil or whatever bridal accessories you’re doing? I had some intervening dress doubt, but once I had my dress on with a veil I just felt like a bride and was good to go.
Also, I wonder if the lack of “sway” you’re talking about is just because it’s a new dress and needs to hang out/loosen up out of the bag a bit.

I see what you mean @Kir474 about how the dress hangs. Maybe wear it around the house a few times to loosen it up? Or have you asked the seamstress if they have any suggestions on getting the dress to sway better?

Kir474 : Overall that second dress is way better!!!! I feel like there is too much going on in your first dress idk….

Kir474 : Have you thought about simply adding a petticoat or skirt underneath your dress? The additional structure might help your dress hang in a more uniform fashion, and make the details in the dress more defined.

Kir474 : I totally get why you want to change the skirt. Skirt #2 is so flattering and looks like it flows so nicely. I think it’s a lovely combination if the colors match – but for that price you could get an entire dress, it’s worth looking for one that’s similar to those two pieces together.

It looks better than I thought it would though I don’t like the two-colour look. Does it have to be a blush skirt?
And it does NOT need a belt , expecially not a sparkly one. Frankly OP I’m no help , as I love the unique style of the original dress and I believe your alterations are a bit of a ‘ordininaryfication’
You looked stunning in the original. Good in the hybrid too, I have to say !

I think the hybrid is beautiful but without the blush. If it was all white, that would be perfection!

Don’t combine the two. The fabrics are too different and it won’t look good. You might think about selling yours on preownedweddingdresses.com and rush ordering a new one. 5 months is long enough. Cutting it close, but doable.
