It’s a beautiful dress. I wouldn’t give it any more volume.

Did you have the shoes on you’ll be wearing with it? It’s pretty normal to lift a long dress when walking or stepping up n the pedestal, but it shouldn’t be so long that you’re tripping on it. Was the fitting done with the extra crinoline on in the first place?

I love, love, love your dress

I’d say try it with the slip and see if it’s easier to manage. I don’t think it would hurt the look to add a little extra poof. It’s a gorgeous dress!!!

I think the only way you’ll know for sure is to try on a crinoline with it.  See which way you like it best.

@MissAndie:  Ok, I did the same thing (BM’s are in CA, I’m in NC) and Fiance was working the day I went in for the fitting.  Of course, then I went to go put it on at home, and it didn’t fit right, and I’m freaking out because this is already my second dress.  It’s probably not the dress, it’s just you feeling the pressure of getting everything perfect for your big day.  Call your seamstress and go back if you have to.  That’s what I did, and I felt so much better about everything afterwards.  Just to be sure, I’m having her come to my venue to dress me that day.  You look gorgeous in that dress!

Try it with the shoes you’ll be wearing that day. If you still have trouble walking then have it hemmed again. You have a month which is plenty of time (hemming is super easy) I had mine shortened like 2 weeks before the wedding and everything was fine. Even with it at the right length you’ll have to pick up the dress on stairs etc. so don’t worry about that. Just make sure you can walk around ok! : )

Can you try a small hoop instead so that you get the volume, but the fabric is kept away from your legs?
