IMO, the material of the dress looks better without being pushed out by a trumpet petticoat.  Lace’s natural drape is part of its beauty.  Such a gorgeous gown!  Congrats!

 I agree with jjmomma, I think it looks great without the petticoat!

Did you try it on with one at any point?

Yes, definitely try one on.  And try to find one that has the least amount of “poof”.  See what that looks like.  I think the dress is beautiful as is, but I would want to see it with a crinoline just to see if added anything. Or took away.

I say yes, or at least try one on.

I personally prefer the shape that a mermaid petticoat/hoop gives. It emphasizes the curvaceous cut of the dress, and therey emphasizing and flattering the curves of the bride wearing the dress.

Hmmm can we see a picture with the petticoat? I like it as is, but would need to see it with a petticoat to make an informed decision! Dress is GORGEOUS on you btw!

Maybe not a full-fledged crinolines, but your seamstress could add a couple layers of tulle. It definitely needs a little more umph.

If you decide to go with one, I would not go with a real poofy one. Maybe just a slight flare to it.

I debating about this with my own dress. I think trumpet slips are really cute and trendy, but I think the dress also looses some if its elegance. I love it when the fabric pools on the floor and looks all drapey 🙂

It looks great so i would need to see what a petticoat would do to it to make it better.

GAH so pretty!!! This is my ideal dress.

 

No, I don’t think you need one.  And for the sake of comfort, I wouldn’t.

I love a defined trumpet shape so I would explore a slip, crinoline, or some tulle.
