…on the dancefloor.
We’d love to do a swing dancing number for our first dance and I don’t think a reception dress is in our budget.. and I’m not too optimistic about mobility even after bustling my dress.
I have my eye on Casablanca 2043:
Looking at the way it is layered, I was wondering if it might be at all possible for a seamstress to convert, say, the bottom two layers into a tearaway skirt? I don’t think I’ll mind if it looks uneven – as long as I can move (and possibly be flipped… YIKES) without going completely arse up! Plus, being a sentimental sod, I can still enjoy the special opportunity of wearing my wedding dress all day/night.
What do you think?

@ksus07: yes it is possible, and sounds very fun to see

With the tiered skirt it could be possible and still blend nicely as a whole dress without the obvious “this skirt detaches here” line. Depending on the seamstresses at the bridal salon, who are mostly experienced in fitting dresses and not really altering them too much, you might want to get the opinion of an independent dress maker.

Great title, I think it’s possible if that’s what you really want. Can’t wait to see pics!!!

I think you need to post a video of that when it happens. 🙂 I think seamstresses can do just about almost anything, so probably yeah.

Do it. I thought about doing that for my dress, except that I LOVE gowns and being glamorous, so I kept the whole thing the whole time. It was great for twirling on the dance floor!

@drlolaz: Yeah I’m still slightly undecided but would hope I could reattach the torn skirt at any point of the night if I wanted to go back to being all glammed up again, haha!

This idea sounds amazing! I would definitely go and talk to a seamstress and see what she says… a great seamstress can work wonders!
