I bought my dress a few months ago (DB WG3512) and finally went back into David’s Bridal today to pick out a slip. I ended up going with the ball gown slip, and now I’m really anxious about my decision! (This is what happens when I shop by myself, lol.)
First, does it look crazy big and poofy–too crazy? And second, will it be too much for my wedding? We’re having an intimate wedding of only 20 people–ceremony outdoors followed by dinner in a private room at a restaurant.
Here are two pictures of me in the dress and the big slip–it looks smaller in the second one because of the angle.
Thanks for your help, bees!

I think it looks great! I was expecting like scarlett o’hara poofy for some reason haha. I don’t think its too poofy at all. Looks beautiful on you 🙂

@asianbarbie: Okay! I don’t have any pictures with no slip at all (which might be nice, who knows?!) but here’s a pic with the smallest slip I tried on.

I feel like I look awfully squat in the smaller slip, which is odd, because I am nearly 6 feet tall with my wedding heels on!!

I like the smaller slip a lot.

@howsweetitis: DEFINITELY the bigger slip! It’s not like it’s a Scarlett O’Hara 6 hoop skirt, and even if it WAS, mine had 4 hoops, and we had 42 guests!
And it’s not like it’s silk and bedazzled and ultra formal. It looks so light and airy!

@BrandNewBride: Haha, thank you! This is what I need to hear–someone who had a small wedding with a big ole skirt! And it is very light and airy; the lace is made of cotton!
Thank you all for your feedback! This is so helpful! 🙂

Thanks, ladies, even those who aren’t fans! I feel WAY better now that I posted this. I’m totally fine with not everyone liking it–we all have different styles. I just needed to know that I wasn’t in crazy town!!

I actually really love the bigger slip, but it depends on what you’re more comfortable in!
