Personally, I’d remove the split front and just have a single layer skirt.  The peacock detailing speaks for itself!  It is gorgeous though!  Can’t wait to see what you have made!

First, I love the original color the way it is, it’s different. Second, I actually like the split front. It keeps withe the theme of it being “Peacock”. As for the mesh vs. lace, I’m torn on this. I like the look of mesh over satin, it gives it a very bourdouir feel, BUT the lace would give it a slight more victorian feel. It will take some experimenting! Maybe get this photo into photoshop and start superimposing different ideas so you can get a better feel. 🙂 LOVE THE DRESS!

Have you totally given up on your original dress? Or will this “new” dress replace the ceremony and reception idea!

One more thing! If you do lace, or even if you don’t, what about a lace overhang at the bottom? I love the look of that!!!

Yes, even if you took the split away and did that skirt with the lace over hang. LOVE IT! Great pic to interpret what I was thinking, haha!

@Corilee13: GOTCHA! Sorry for prying! But I totally understand your needing to SIT at some point LOL! Might have to get you Segway or Motorized scooter! Just really love the unique’ness of your Original Gown! I personally would change it to ALL one fabric. Like a PP suggested the splitting of the gown and the two different material, im not a fan of.

As much as I love love love peacock feathers…I see the placement possibly being annoying and itchy after a while! or would hugging guests, dancing, etc possibly damage the gown/feathers? Maybe opt for a smaller fanning of feathers or maybe have them placed at just the bodice or back of the gown? within the train somehow? idk if that makes any sense! Again, I love the dress from an artistic stand point, but I dont know if I could imagine going to a wedding and seeing a bride wear something like this at her reception. Again I dont mean any offense, just my honest opinion.

And Jeans??? Dear God no!!

I think something flowy would be awesome….like a slight ruching…almost coming out of where the feathers are.  Does that even make sense?? 🙂

No one I know that got married when I did 5 years ago (first marriage) had ever done a second dress either. I did on the first marriage because my wedding dress was like 20 pounds of tulle for the skirt and I couldn’t sit. So my reception dress was short and white. No worries on the tangent, youre allowed 🙂 Even now, I suggested a second dress for fun, and people are giving me a hard time, so just do what you want in that regard! 

Also, what if you did a short version of the peacock?!?!
