I went in for my first fitting and my dress was HUGE. It looks good in pictures but way too big in person. I decided to take out one of the crinolines (there are still two). And removed the belt because it didnt match. Now I love it in person and it still looks big. Even bigger with the bustle. But does it look too deflated in pictures? I can put the crinoline back. So crinoline or no? Belt or no belt? I need advice!! I am a pretty small person and don’t want the dress to overtake me but I feel like I’m changing it too much. The first picture is with the crinoline and belt

@Septbride2013: I think it looks beautiful without the crinoline, still has volume but not hugely so. 🙂 Also I actually love it more without the belt! Great choices on alterations!!

I love your dress! I think it looks perfect without the crinoline, still has an amazing amount of body to it 🙂

@Septbride2013: what a beautiful dress!
It looks MUCH better in the 2nd picture with only 2 layers of crinoline.
It still looks gorgeous and elegantly dramatic.
I also agree with you in removing the sash. If you do want a sash perhaps add a shiny satin with more of a sheen to lift the look.

I like it with the crinoline and the belt, although a different belt might be better (mabye something with rhinestones or a closer match to your dress color?).

@Septbride2013: I agree with @lisaelanna: also would it be possible to leave the crinoline for the ceremony and pictures then take it off for the reception that way the bulk of your pics will have your dress nice and big and then for your have the comfort of a lighter/less poofy dress.

I like them both- I will be wearing a ballgown as well with a huge petticoat underneath, but I really wanted a dramatic feel to my dress.
If you don’t mind me asking, what is the designer/style number of your dress?

@Septbride2013: maybe you can add a a little bit of sparkle as a belt. in addition, i assume the lace pattern is a bit different from the sample Lazaro i found on web. But the dress is def gorgeous 🙂 i liked the both.

I tried this ddress on too – it’s beautiful! I agree with some of the others – less poofy looks better and without the belt is better. I think a very thin sparkly sash would be beautiful and would still show off the gorgeous lace bodice. Beautiful dress!

Are you interested in selling the dress? I really love this dress but I am on a budget.
