- Wedding: May 2014
Hey bees! Help a girl out.
I am having an Orthodox Jewish wedding, which means I want sleeves and a high neckline on my dress. I bought this sample dress for a song on Etsy because it had many of the elements I was looking for – I love the ruching, the big full skirt, and the wide sash/corset style of the bodice. It’s made of a beautiful ivory silk shantung (much more ivory than it appears in these pics). The only thing I am on the fence about is the frills. At first I was adamant that they had to go (reminded me of piping on a cake), but now I’m second guessing myself. My future SIL likes them and she generally has fabulous taste in clothes.
It is a tiered (or “gypsy”) style skirt, so even if I took the frills off, there would be a seam between the sections. So what do you think? Frills on? Frills totally off? Frills off but replace with some other kind of trim?
