I think you’re right, that last layer is just a little shorter. I think it looks great, though! Keep in mind that 99% of the time your guests will be seeing the dress in motion (as you walk down the aisle) and you’ll get a more flowy effect that way.

I love it and thinks it looks amazing on you!

However if you feel like you want it to be more flowly can you add a crinoline underneath do make the bottom go out a little more.

I see what you mean about the bottom. It kind of looks like they just cut it off in mid-flow. Do you think that they can add a layer over the shortened one to add the flowy-ness back?

I still love the way the dress fits on you though.

I love the dress and you look beautiful in it, but…I totally do see what you are saying about the skirt being less ‘flowy’ after the alterations. If I hadn’t seen the first pic I never would have thought about it.  I’m sure they can do something if you want to go back to the original look…maybe adding another layer underneath? It seriously still looks great though.

I agree. It looks like rather than shortening that last layer from the top, they cut off the ruffly flowy part on the bottom. I still think it looks beautiful though. I agree with Roxy that you could add a crinolin to get a bit more poof on the bottom. JeniRae is right too, you’re pretty much going to be in constant motion so know one is going to notice. I think no matter what, you’re going to be the only one who sees a problem with the bottom hem!

Another thought, could they bring the next tier of fabric down a couple inches? It seems like the top 2 layers are a bit longer than the bottom two, so maybe they could bring those down to cover the bottom?

Again, I think it’s totally gorgeous and you look stunning!

I suggest getting an estimate and then see if that price is worth it. It looks gorgeous on you though

Not to be a party pooper, but I see what you’re saying. Is there anyway you could have them hem it up differently so it’s more flared?

Well, I looked at the photos before reading what you wrote about the bottom of the dress and all I noticed was “wow, beautiful dress and it looks great on her”.

I see what you are saying…but the picture is taken at a different angle.  It the first one you can see it more from the side and u can see some of the train in the fitted pictures it looks a little tight in there and you can see the front only!  I think that the dress looks awesome on you!  You could pay to have another layer added in…is it neccesary in my opinon no.  I think that everyone seeing you walking and the dress moving are never goingto notice!

Post-Alterations Pics 1 and 2 look slightly different from the bottom hem perspective. Was the 2nd pic taken with the dress bustled up?

Just had a 2nd thought looking at the pics again the layer 2nd from bottom….could they bring that up a little to give the apperance of more symetrical layers?  I dont think it would need alot but would make a difference
