I can’t lie…I agree with you that this dress is THE dress.  Your first dress was very pretty, but pales in comparison to this beauty!  Love the color and the fabulous shape it gives you!  Congratulations on getting your dream gown!!

I love it. It’s just gorgeous! And it’s so much more unique than your original dress choice. 🙂 I hope I can end up in a similar situation and eventulaly find my own perfect dress… how did you get them to let you exchange dresses? Did they have a return policy that allowed for that or did they make an exception for you? I’ve already emailed the store where I bought my dress, which I know is a bit impersonal and maybe they would have given me a different answer in person, but even when I offered to exchange my dress at a loss (it’s a store that sells dresses off the rack only) they said they wouldn’t be able to take any exchanges. Sigh. :

So, so pretty. I just love this dress (saw it in the other thread). I don’t have any suggestions for the crinoline, but surely there’s some kind of no VPL-type seamless style? Otherwise I would consider getting a seamstress to add in additional layers of tulle/netting straight onto the dress (so you won’t have to deal with an additional layer right up to your midsection).

Adore the new dress on you – and the colour is fantastic. YAY!

@smv22114:  I think if you’re at all handy with a sewing machine (or even needle and thread) you could easily buy some tulle/netting and do it yourself. Just sew it layer by layer from under the bit where the flowers cascade into tulle. You could even get an existing crinoline and just cut it off at the tulle section, and sew that one. Or – like you suggested – maybe replacing the top part with a Spanx-like slip instead.
