    Unless you’re having a very funky, off-beat wedding, I don’t think they’re very appropriate.  I was at a wedding where the bride dyed her crinoline, but they also wore aviators, converse, and the bride and two bridesmaids had purple streaks in their hair.  It fit her personality, so I thought it was fun.  Otherwise, I wouldn’t be a huge fan of it.

    To me it really depends on the dress, can we see what yours looks like?

    As long as it matches your colour scheme, I think it looks neat.

    I love them I can’t wait to wear one. I love how they add a splash of colour to the dress.

    I LOVE colored crinolin/petticoats.  My colors are red and orange with some yellows and tans thrown in (Fall colors obviously) but my shoes are teal blue (for my something blue) and I plan to dye my crinolin a teal blue as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had one and I loved it and so did everyone else who saw it!  We had a formalish nautical wedding of navy gold and white but I wore an ivory dress with a navy blue crinoline and I loooooved how it added a bit of flair & fun to my simple yet elegant bridal look.


    i don’t think they are tacky at all! just another way for you to personalize your look!

    My friend did this for her wedding and it looked AWESOME!  As long as you’re not having a super duper traidtional wedding, I think it’s great.

    Here are pix from her: http://offbeatbride.com/2009/09/wyoming-backyard-wedding

    I’m not normally a fan but I think it depends on the dress and the colors. 

    The PP above with the blue I think is really cute!  The dark blue looks really nice with the white.  But I’ve also seen some that for whatever reason (either dress, or color) I just didn’t like. So definitely depends on the dress!

    For instance, I just wouldn’t like it with an all lace dress.  Maybe it’s something with the romantic feel of the lace versus like a bright pink color, for instance, that just throws me off.

    We just had our wedding and pink was in our colors, not to mention my favorite color so I dyed mine and then we dyed husbands socks to match! :o). I also did my shoes with Swarovski rhinestones :oD

    I love them! I had one for my wedding and I thought it looked very classy. The reality is, no one will really see it, but it definitely pops in pictures.
