I am totally clueless, but you’re a vision. You look amazing in your dress!

to me the length of your dress looks right with the crinoline. It would look very elegant with (lace?) closed toe shoes. My dress for example was just a tad too long and it got stepped on severel times; plus, fear of tripping was always in the back of my mind every time I was dancing. You look beautiful, elegant and bridal.

I really like your dress.  the lace up back is beautiful. 

I think the length of you dress looks good with the crinoline and agree with mandM, if it’s too long there’s a chance of tripping.  I hurt my foot two days before my wedding and changed from small heels to no heels and there was a bit of walking that had to worked out cause I kept tripping over my dress at first.

You look gorgeous! That dress is so flattering on you! And I agree with you on the crinoline, it really adds to the look. If you want the dress to be longer, I’m wondering if there’s extra fabric in the hem that could be let out a 1/2 inch? And steaming would help relax the fabric a bit, probably not a whole 1/2 inch, to give you a little more length.

Beautiful dress!! I like the crinoline as well… what shoes are you wearing, could you go with a lower heel?

is the length different from the 1st to 2nd pictures? It looks longer in the 1st one. Personally, I like the length more when it’s RIGHT at the floor (1st picture), but that is personal preference! πŸ™‚

you look gorgeous in it! Love the back πŸ™‚

I like the first length as well. Is it possible for the seamstress to cut some of the “pouffiness” out of the crinoline so that you will have some volume but maintain some of the length in the first pic as well?

Your dress is stunning! I prefer the first length as well.

Now I’m having dress envy for your dress, haha!

I like the length with the crinoline.  I don’t think it’s too short.  You don’t want it to be too long, you’ll be tripping over it all day long.

Is that Alfred Angelo #1148?  On paper that was my dream dress, but it just didn’t work on me the way I thought it would.  You look beautiful in it though!

I prefer both the look and length of the dress with the crinoline. In the first picture, it looks like it’s dragging on the floor a little, and I’d be worried about spending all night tripping over the dress. And it looks much better with the fuller skirt. Regardless of what you choose, though, you look beautiful!

I like it with the crinoline too.  It isn’t too short and make sure that there isn’t any dress in the way when you walk!
