Your original dress is so beautiful, I really hope you end up choosing that one. It really doesn’t look too mermaid-y, I think it looks more A-line. I don’t think you will have too much trouble dancing in it. You look gorgeous in it!

i agree, it doesnt look very mermaid-y so it seems like it wouldn’t be hard to walk in…

I wouldn’t have ever really called the beaded dress a “mermaid” style, but if that is how you feel in it (thighs smashed together) then thats something you have to consider.  Is there a reason you have to wear such a tight slip in that dress?  My dress is supposed to have a crinoline and I just said no, i wasn’t going to wear one.

Sounds to me that even though you like the way you look in the one you own, you really are starting to talk yourself out of it… you need to be comfortable with what you choose.  i still think the one you have is the best one on you.. but it’s your decision, and you HAVE to love the dress you get.

If you don’t like the slip crinoline, there really isn’t a reason that a good seamtress can’t provide tulle support attached to the bottom of the dress. If you aren’t looking for crazy fullness, just a little structure. Have you looked at slim a-line slips? I am wearing one of those, I found that it wasn’t as hot or restrictive.

Hi,

I still think the beaded lacy one that you bought looks gorgeous on you, like the earlier posts said.  (I should have posted previously-but agreed with so many of them, that I didn’t think you needed another comment of the same, lol)  I saw the original and the more zipped up photo too, I personally don’t think you need to add a crinoline under the beautiful gown that you bought-make yourself comfortable for your wedding!  BTW- the other gown is nice too, but I REALLY think YOU rock the dress you bought!  (My daughter wore a slim dress, and decided that she didn’t like/need something under it, and it looked just fine without-which I think is your case too! 🙂

I’d go back and dance around and even sit down to make sure it’s comfortable and you can do it! Don’t talk yourself out of a beautiful dress, but at the end of the day you have to feel amazing in it.

it HAS to be YOUR choice, silly! Both are very flattering on you, so it doesn’t matter which one you pick!

I love, love, love the beaded one! 🙂 If you need someone to take it off your hands… I can do that for you. 😉 I like my dress… but that one is gorgeous!

It is your choice, though! You have to feel comfortable.

Ohhh…don’t ditch your beaded dress! Wear a different crinoline or no crinoline — it looked fine without. It’s not super-mermaidy. I’d desribe it as a “slim a-line.” So pretty and original!

Haha…if you don’t wear it, sell it on weddingbee. I’ll bet you’d have lots of takers here!
