i agree with the canary yellow as to not blend in 🙂

Are you wearing colored shoes? I’d dye the crinoline the opposing color. This really sounds cute!

I would go with the yellow, but that is because yellow is my favorite color!

I’ve seen yellow with yellow shoes and it looked awesome! You should check out the offbeatbride.com and see if you can find some pictures of people who’ve done the colored crinoline thing to get some examples. Also, if you are looking for yellow and have a tea length dress I think unique-vintage.com sells some, but it does sound like you already have your crinoline…..

I vote green – I dont think it will blend into the background, but will look really nice in pictures. The green will stand out from your dress more and then the green in the background will just make the green crinoline more vivid for your pictures.

Have you looked at any other companies for a dye closer to canary (if you go with yellow)? Otherwise, I think the key to a brighter/darker yellow would just be to soak the crinoline in the dye for a longer period of time (you can always take it out and let it dry and then re-soak if it’s too light to get the right color). The other way to get a brighter/darker yellow would be to use more dye and less water to make the mixture. 

And if you try the yellow and it really doesnt come out a dark enough yellow, you could always use the green dye right over it without a problem.

Yes definetly yellow, I too had my wedding green and yellow, I also added orange and loved how it looked. I weared pearl jewelry with a green flower, yellow heels and a custom headpiece and bouquet with all 3 colors. Everybody told me they loved all the little splashes of color I wore.

I would do yellow. It’s subtle but still fun. Also, if you don’t like how the color comes out with the RIT, just dye it again until it gets darker. For that matter, if you don’t like the yellow, you can dye green over it! YELLOW!

I vote yellow as well, but have you concidered doing a yellow-green? vibrant yellow-green crinoline?  that might transition nicely between all your canary yellow and green.. esp. since it’s just for the crinoline.

 

great colors!!!
