@unixfairy:  Are you renting or buying your crinolin? I’m looking to buy a crinolin and my dress has almost the exact silhouette as yours (Maggie Sottero- Jenna). If your buying/ have already bought it, can you let me know from where/ what brand ect?

 

BTW- *LOVE* trumpet/ drop waist with a full skirt. You look fantastic!!!

Exactly the look I am going for! Ugh I just hope it doesnt make my dress too short (custom hem when I ordered.)

I am but one, anonymous opinion on WB, but I have to admit: I like the gown best on you AS IS, without the dramatic trumpet effect. You are a gorgeous woman with a gorgeous silhouette, but the first look is far more slimming and refined/elegant looking.

Best of luck! You will make a beautiful bride, regardless.

@unixfairy: I have a question for you, UnixFairy. When you bought your dress, did the shop tell you that hemming your dress would be impossible or did you find out only after it arrived? I ask because whenever I asked the consultants how a tulle/lace dress would be hemmed, they made it seem like it woudn’t be a problem. In the back of my mind, though, I had my doubts. I ultimately chose a lace and organza dress that can be hemmed fairly easily, but I thought I’d ask for the other short bees who may have purchased lace/tulle dresses.

@unixfairy I LOVE your dress with the petticoat. My dress has a similar dropped waist shape and I hope I can acheive the same effect (and avoid difficult hemming)!

I wore a crinoline with mine and it definitely changed the look.
