Here is my dress. I loved it when I got it but the more I look at it, the more mermaidish I want it. It’s sort of mermaid but I don’t like how it lays at the bottom. I am hoping they can add some tulle under it. We shall see. I am also having a heart shaped neck line added and a beaded floral strap.

You can get a mermaid shaped crinoline that would help add some poof and from the picture its hard to see the neckline but i think you look great in that dress!!!

I think your dress is beautiful!
There are actual mermaid crinoline slips you can buy to wear under it that might give it more of the look you want. Ask your bridal shop if they have one you can try on under it.

Your dress is breathtaking 🙂 You look amazing! I’m sorry to hear that you are unhappy with it right now and hope after alterations and an extra crinoline that it comes out how you want it…

It’s so beautiful!!! I’m biased because I got a mermaid myself. 🙂 That train is so unexpected because the front is so sleek…wow!
But like others said, extra crenoline should get you the effect you’re looking for. Something like this: http://www.advantagebridal.com/slfitmesl3la.html

This is a stunning dress, a mermaid crinoline will help as the other ladies have suggested. Congrats though it looks beautiful on you 🙂

Hi dress twin!! I know exactly what you mean I am wearing a crinoline with this dress (It does so much for the shape). I found a hoop slip that I LOVED online and can no long find it, but I’m not sure if a mermaid or fit and flare style will give me the look I’m going for.
I’d love to see your final alterations!! There’s another bride on WB wearIng 2083 and had a GoRgEoUs sweetheart neckline modification.
~Smooches and blessings!!
ETA-I picked up my dress yesterday and they didn’t tell that they have a mermaid crinoline
I’ll follow up….excited!!

I tried this one on too! It’s an Alfred Angelo, right? It looks beautiful on you. Sometimes I wonder why so many dresses just didn’t feel like “the one” when I tried them on, even though they were so gorgeous.

So I went and bout my veil yesterday. I went to David’s Bridal and had to take my dress with me. They put me in a private room and wouldn’t let me come out in my dress because it was another designer. Let me just say…..THIS DRESS IS SUPER HOTT!!! I was sweating terribly. Ew. I can’t imagine how hot it is going to be in the SUMMER with a mermaid crinoline. AAHHHHH. Anywho… I bought the chapel length veil and may even do a birdcage for the reception. DIY of course.
