    I love the bubble hem on that dress, it is so interesting.  I vote you keep it.

     

    PS, you look amazing in the dress.

    Out of curiosity why do you want to remove the bubble hem? Is there something about it you don’t like?

    I think that dress would look mighty strange without the original hem… big mistake! It’s lovely as it is!

    I think straight hems look very strange on dresses with that sort of diagonal gathering/pickups.  You look fabulous in your dress.  I vote that the bubble hem stays.

    I’ve not seen that type of dress with a straight hem so it’s hard for me to imagine. However, I do think that the bubble hem suits the dress better than what a straight hem would. It makes the fabric appear draped and it looks very pretty with the diagonal flow.

    I think it will look unfinished if you remove the b-hem… because of the style of the dress, I believe it “needs” the bubble hem.. Besides, it doesn´t really look like a bubble at all, it just gives it a softer end. So I would keep the bubble hem.

    I normally really don’t like bubble hems but this looks awesome – the material flows perfectly and you look amazing.  I vote keep it!

    If you don’t like how much it’s ballooning at the bottom, mention it to your seamstress, so she can steam it a bit flatter for you, before you get it back to wear for your wedding.
