Many of you have seen my pink gown journey on here. Wavering, tweaking, subtracting. My wedding is June 30th this year.
I’ve decided not to order from Dressilyme. Too many unknowns and I worry about the quality. THe gowns bees have purchased here are lovely, I just don’t have time to wait and see how it goes.
I had purchased a blush lined lace Impressions mermaid cut gown. The gown is currently being altered and fitted to my body. I will attach the image of it.
I’m decideing between the organza skirt that is attached to it and the sash (vera). Is it too heavy?
Make the skirt a light pink tulle and use the sash photo I have attached.
Lastly – the option of taking off the bottom of the lace gown and adding a mermaid flair like this photo with either the tulle or organza.
I need help deciding.
or this sash and a tulle skirt?
this is the last option – changing the bottom and you decide on the materials: (organza and vera sash or new sash above and blush tulle skirt) with lace leftover edging.

I voted to keep it like you have. I really like the organza flowing from the sash. It makes a statement and it’s very unique. People are going to remember your gown!

I would get rid of the organza and leave the sash on. I also like the other sash you posted.

Are you planning to have the skirt go all the way around or only part way (as pictured)? That would affect my vote. If you are going to add the skirt all the way around then I like the organza. If the skirt will only go part way around then I think the organza is too heavy and I would try the tulle, or add only the sash. I like both sashes btw.

Thanks girls and interestingly so far its a tied 33% for all options! We’re all undecisive! LOL.
Thanks Ms. Fenway 🙂 Mrs. Cheetos – I felt naked without something on the gown that added a romantic flair.
@LittleRiver, the skirt is a half skirt only to go from the hip bones and around to the back. So no sash at all if I do the skirt? The seamstress also suggested that the organza may be too heavy for the 1/2 way around and she had made the tulle skirt.
Glad you like both sashes. The one I posted I was going to have made to feature two of those flowers, not one. The other is the Vera and it has zero sparkle but matched the organza to a t. I could switch out the ball inthe middle of the flower to be a crystal.

I like the second sash and the idea of a mermaid skirt. I’m finding your description a bit confusing, but I want to say make the skirt a light pink tulle.

I like the second sash that you posted but I don’t think I would change your dress for your skirt to be pink. I like your gown with the second sash.
Also while I love the mermaid skirt, this seems like a very hard look to pull off. Have you tried on any dresses in this style to see how they would look on you.

Sorry so confusing. Phd in Counseling and I cannot formulate words to describe my gown wishes! Thanks for pointing that out greendream.
I wish for the gown to be pink and notes of romance in the look of tulle or organza (both would be in pink). I just am having trouble deciding between the two fabrics. Thanks for looking at the post and thinking about it and giving opinions everyone. We’ve all looked so much that sometimes when its our gown its hard to look at it objectively. Perhaps I am making it too complicated!? Nothing else before this gown has stumped me.
@roxy, I definitely look great (if I do say so myself) in mermaid cut gowns. What’s hard to pull off as you said, may be the large “bell-effect” this particular one has in the sottero photo! I asked the seamstress, if we do it, for the bottom to be only two layers certainly passing on the extra crinoline underneath. Its very youthful and bouncy-and while I can be both, I wouldn’t — even when I was 22, be all about that bell!
