I finally (finally!) decided on a dress, an Ines di Santo ballgown/a-line and it comes with a hoop skirt. I am getting married on a hilltop vineyard outdoors, and I am unsure of whether or not I should remove the hoop skirt? I’ve never worn one before, and I’m worried it will be hard to walk/dance/sit. But I read somewhere that it actually makes things easier so the fabric doesn’t get stuck in between the legs when walking. Is it possible to have the hoops made a bit more narrow, so I will still get the structured look, without quite so much, princessy poof? Any tips will be appreciated!

@NikNik: Can you post two pics–one with and one without?
And you need to add a poll.

I had a hoop skirt and it honestly made it much easier to walk around…there was a little technique to sitting down but as long as you practice a couple times you’ll get it down.
What I liked about the hoop is that it allowed some more air to circulate around my legs and it also kept the material off my legs so I wasn’t tripping all the time.
I had more of an a-line too, and the hoop gave me a more ballgown-y look.

@NikNik: Have the hoop removed and get one of the smaller ones off eBay (or just a crinoline)

Incredible silhouette on you! Keep it as-is! You’ll look so glamorous in your vineyard pics!

@NikNik: Lovely detail!! Try on a crinoline and compare.
