I think it’s beautiful and elegant. I am not a fan of “poofy” dresses. The bride makes the dress bridal, not the dress makes the bride a bride. 

Since you still have to try your dress on, does anyone have crinoline you could try to see the difference? Honestly, I do not feel that you need it but you may want to see what this will look like.

Are you wearing a veil? or just a hair piece?

Hopefully the dress is a bit long for you so that you can play with the volume. I think crinoline is always fun! But you won’t really be able to know until the dress come in and you can see how it falls.

There’s nothing wrong with the dress though, if it’s your style. Simple sheath dresses are still bridal!

I would worry that crinoline would ruin the silhouette of the dress. Then again, I’m not a fan of the stuff anyways.

I think adding a belt and a veil will make the dress look “bridal” enough. It’s very pretty! I’m using the same Etsy seller for my MOH’s dress. 🙂

I don’t think a crinoline would look bad, but I’m not sure if it will look how you want. You could do a very thin one and just keep your dress from getting twisted and wrapped around your legs, and I think that would give it just enough fullness.

I bought a really cheap crinoline off ebay to test it out on my sheath dress. I posted both ways on a post here and most ppl voted yes to the crinoline but I cant decide. I feel like I lose the uniqieness with the crinoline but I also like it. Lol. Anyways maybe try ordering a cheap one just to try out. Mine cost 10 bucks but it took 6 weeks to get here.

Ask your Fiance if he likes puffy skirts. My DH hated pouffy dresses– which made this particular decision really easy for me!

Just make sure the fabric of your dress is thick enough so that the crinoline doesn’t poke through and show. 

I went through the exact same thing- I was worried my dress was too simple and not bridal enough. Two items helped me love my dress again- chapel length veil for added drama and a tulle overskirt. 

A long veil will instantly make you feel more bridal. You could even have a lace trim on your veil- that would look beautiful with your dress. 

The tulle overskirt would provide the fullness you want and you could even remove it for the reception for a different look!

Peaceoutboyscout:  Im not sure how to paste the link in here?? Ive posted it below for you to see. I have decided to wear my dress without the crinoline. With the crinoline, it looks beautiful but like many other dresses.

Peaceoutboyscout:  I think your dress would look great with a beaded belt of some sort and your veil. I like the simplicity of your dress with the ruched top. Good luck! It will look great!
