I am dying my crinoline blue to match my shoes. No one knows about this except you ladies and one of my gf who will be dying it with me. It will be a surprise.

Red! http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/second-fitting-win

 

I would have loved to have dyed all the crinoline but mine too is attached, and my seamstress strongly advised against dying anyway – a little humidity and/or rain and it’d be running (although I’ve heard of lots of ladies dying, like a few previous posters here, but I have to trust my seamstress!). So our final alternative option was to add a swath of red lace all the way around. I can’t WAIT to see it.

Do you have photos of your lace addition yet?

oh, that’s fun!

I originally found this pic online

and fell in love with the pink/orange ombre. It’s from an Etsy seller (Ouma is the name of the shop) but looking at the price points from her other items, I have a feeling it will be pretty far outside my budget. All her dresses are custom, and this pic is actually from her instagram feed, there’s not a listing for a similar dress on Etsy. So I went to try on dresses and really liked the Mori Lee 4708. The sales girl said that the alterations people could add the colored tulle on to the bottom section of my dress so I could still get the pop of color that I fell in love with.  I haven’t ordered yet (thinking about going the “once worn” route, I’ve seen a few posts online selling this dress) but that is my plan and I’m super excited!
