Your best option would be to have the extra tulle added to the inside of the gown. You could have your seamstress use a basting stitch instead of a regular stitch. That way it would be easier for you to remove after the wedding. Using elastic for the waist/hip/bum band may cause the crinoline to ride up and show above the line of your gown. The drawstring option may work; however, I would be worried about it slipping off of your hips, if you plan to dance and/or move around a lot. A drawstring typically needs something to hold it up; ie., your hips because it will loosen with wear.

EDIT: I just thought of something. Your seamstress may be able to attach snaps and/or hooks to the inside of your dress and/or crinoline to hold the crinoline in place. That would make it even easier to remove and you would be able to remove it and dye it, if that is what you want to do.

you could have the tulle added to your dress,  and if you want a pop of colour……just use that colour tulle.
