i wanted pink shoes for the wedding…however, i have given up hope that i will ever find a pair that i like(flats – no heel at all!, closed toe and adorable) so i’ve decided that maybe i can get the color under my dress by dying my crinoline. i have read some how-to’s on it, and i just wanted to know, is it fairly easy?? anyone have experience doing it and thought it wasn’t worth the effort? just curious on the opinions.
also, i’m not sure if my dress would look right with colored crinoline…here’s a picture of it. i just feel like i need some color

From what I’ve heard it’s pretty simple… might be hard to color match (maybe do more than once)
here are a couple flat “pinks” I found from a place I like to order from
1st is “fuschia” and 2nd is “coral” they’re a bit limited on sizes but their both under 15 bucks…

You’re dress is super pretty… I don’t know if you need it! but it’s your personal opinion and your wedding so do what you want!
Maybe you could use some pink jewelry or even make flats? Maybe even sandals?

I am all for coloured crinoline! I am hoping to dye mine as well 🙂

Just do a search on wedding bee. There are plenty of how to’s and from my understanding very simple to do.

Here are some super cute ones from Zappos, not the cheapest but they have free shipping and they’ll look lovely.http://www.zappos.com/me-too-lilium-fuchsia-satin I think your dress is too elegant for the dyed crinoline (haha that sounds funny, how can something be too elegant?). I chose to skip the crinoline and do just the small fuchsia heels and I’m so excited.

I think a dyed crinoline would look great under your gown!!!
I was going to dye mine, but I decided it wouldn’t work for my gown.

thanks everyone for the opinions. today i had my first fitting and we asked the lady if i dyed it and didn’t like it if i would be able to get a new one quick…she told me i was being silly! lol and to wear pink shoes. and surprisingly my mom loved the idea…which most of the time she doesn’t! still deciding
@Lauren10.8.11: and i’m definitely thinking of having someone on etsy make me a bracelet that has some pink in it, just for some color :O)
