Hey Bees! Ok so I decided on the casablanca 1992. I love this dress and have already purchased it. However, the dress has always seemed a little plain in the skirt to me, and so I am considering having it altered to have the lace lifted and give it a ‘peek a boo’ affect. PS. I will most likely be wearing cowgirl boots with this dress as my bridesmaids are wearing Coral Lace dresses with cowgirl boots, we are getting married outside at a really nice Golf Club, so I don’t want to go ‘too country’ but love the look of cowgirl boots 🙂

also, the second picture is with a full petticoat, so I would have a fuller one in option 1 on my wedding day too 🙂

A “little lift” as in an antebellum-style pick-up in the front (like this but lower)? I just need some help visualizing it.
If so, then I say go ahead! it’s your day, your dress, and your look. It won’t be unflattering, offensive or garish, so most people are likely responding based on personal style preferences.
A possible option would be to have the seamstress put a mini, single-pickup bustle in the front where you’d like the lift (buttons, snaps, or ties). That way, you can lift it or let it out as you please!

I agree with what @MlleFabuleux said. That is a PERFECT compromise! (I can’t spell tonight) ..
FWIW, I like it with the lift and the peek-a-boo (I can’t vote, my work PC hates the bee)

@LiveLoveLaugh2012: love the dress on you as is 🙂 Maybe if you had a picture of what you want the peekaboo will look like, it might help with visualisation

I don’t think your dress is plain at all, less is more though! You can still wear your cowgirl boots with your dress.

Sorry for the confusion. The peekaboo, would be as shown in pic #1… I just want it lifted and gathered at one side and then the tulle will show under neather the dress…
