    Think how you will feel 10-20 years from now looking back on your photos. I find the bubble hem totally trendy and will be “out” just like puffy sleeves were 10+ years ago.

    i agree with your seamstress.  some styles you can date right down to the year…bubble hems might not be that trendy, but trendy enough that if a stranger was to look at your photos in 15 years, s/he’d be able to say, “ah, she must’ve gotten marred about 15 years ago.”  (i’m pretty sure that swirly/raw edge fabric on the VW white gowns that other designers are doing now too are going to be the same way.)

    Normally I am not a fan of bubble hems but have actually seen a bubble hem on a VERY similar dress and thought it looked fantastic! It sort of matches the rouching at the hips and really made the dress look complete instead of just a straight-across cut-off at the bottom.

    I also wanted to add some advice, take or leave: with that dress a sash + chunky necklace may be overkill. That dress makes quite a statement that I don’t think you need anything more than some nice earrings (studs or chandelier) and a tennis bracelet. Just my $.02

    I would!!  I’m actually deciding between 2 dresses now and one of the weighing factor is the bubblehem (YES, it’s the Adorae)…i think it makes it so much more elegant!

    After seeing your dress, I think it would look stunning with a bubble hem!! It would fit very nicely with the style.

    Not to thread jack, but here’s my bubble hem dress, Maggie Sottero Dallas Marie. I think if you did something similar (a very delicate bubble hem), it would look phenomenal!

    I was never a fan of bubble hems until I tried on adorae.  My Mom is normally a huge bubblehem hater and didn’t even notice it!  Anyway, it has a similar shape/style to adorae, so I think a similar bubble hem would look great on that dress.

    I’ve loved bubble hems ever since I had a bubble-hemmed sundress as a little girl in the 80’s.

    @Khumble – Sounds nice. I still (personally) think you don’t need any necklace or sash with all the rouching, bubble hem,sweetheart neckline, veil or hair thingy, earrings, etc. But I’m sure you will look smashing!

    I think it looks great when the skirt is silk or satin without trim. 

    Like this Pnina I tracked down the other day for something else…

    I’m sorry but bubble hems make me think of teeny bopper too short party dresses.
