    I love that silhouette on you. It looks amazing! I think many of your worries may be solved with the hem. Once it falls more naturally and isn’t getting bunched up on the floor, it will look incredible.

    If you want to alter it, it shouldn’t be too much to remove layers of crinolin, but if you want to start shaping it into more fit n’ flare style, it could get pricy.

    I am having this done to my a-line gown. I have 4 layers of crinoline and it’s entirely too much. I’m having at least 2 layers removed and the skirt pulled in a bit. I’m using a local independent seamstress and she’s charging me $80 for that work plus a handful of other small things. So it’s doable! If it’s possible, I would definitely recommend using a local seamstress as opposed to the one at the shop where you got your dress.

    I think part of the issue is the bubble at the bottom from the hem being too long, so it will look better hemmed. But I also think if you don’t like the poof it would be fine.

    It’s a matter of opinion, what you like. Have you tried trying on a similar silhouette with less poof? Maybe comparing yourself in a dress w/out poof will help you visualize this. I think it is beautiful how it is and it looks very “bridal”. I think if you take away the poof it will look less bridal.

    @bythebook:  Haha Ella86 is doing a great job saying what I want to say (she got a lot of beef from me about her own dress regret)!  You look FANTASTIC in your dress and I wouldn’t try to de pouf it! It’s seriously stunning.  Def wait on that hem, and keep us posted on how you feel after it!
