I was hoping you girls could tell me what type of petticoat I should get for this dress. The whole petticoat thing just confuses me. My best friend is getting married 2 weeks before me, and we thought maybe we could share a petticoat? She will be wearing an aline dress.
I’m at a loss for what type of undergarments I should be wearing. We will be getting married this summer, outside. I get overheated super easy and turn bright pink… Yeahhh that would look great in photos! I’m assuming I cant wear a strapless bra, and get to experience those petal stickers? Or is there another option?
Also, should I be concerned about petticoats possibly making my dress shorter? Does it matter at all?

It depends on how the dress fits you and the shape you want. Your best bet is a mermaid crinoline which will provide more bounce towards the bottom of the dress. You could also try an A-line crinoline that would make it flare out a bit higher up.
Yes crinoline/petticoat will make the dress bit shorter so you would have to try it on with the dress to see how much of a difference it makes

I would think you’d want a mermaid for that dress, if you have one at all. Definitely not A-Line, because I think that’d ruin the great lines that dress has around the hips.

@vcabbyw: Pretty much ditto what bells said, it does depend on the shape you want.
Lovely dress btw
