    @boombacha: Yikes! Call me a traditionalist, but I just couldn’t imagine doing that to this beautiful dress!  I’m thinking if you want to do something slightly out of the ordinary, maybe a black petticoat would be sufficient.  But I still vote for ivory petticoat and keep the dress just the way it is!

    I also say leave it as is, the dress is beautiful in its perfect simplicity, I would just let it shine!

    I love the idea of letting your personality shine through on your wedding day and adding black. I look at your pictures and I think it would just be absolutely fantastic. However, I know on your other post your Fiance didn’t want any color in your dress so it may not be the best choice.

    I am all for personalizing the dress though so if you choose to do the ivory I’d avoid cutting your dress, and go with option C. I LOVE the look of that dress.

    I’ve seen a lot of pictures on here of mermaids without a petticoat and I do prefer the look with one.

    I think a petticoat would be great with this dress, it could really add a bit of volume in the back and through the whole base of the dress, but I’d skip the slit, I worry it may change the sillouette of your dress!

    My dress has quite a bit of built in crinoline (It is Ines Di Santo – Susanna) and there is more crinolane in the back which I really love! πŸ™‚

    I could see doing something like what the bottom of the Rivini Dari looks like, but I honestly think your dress looks stunning as is!


    The Dari has a little, accordian-like, layer that extends beyond the hem at the bottom.  It’s really cute!

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I love Option A!  I would have never thought of that and without the pic I would have thought it was a terible idea.  But, after seeing the pic I really do love it!  Definately funky!  Not sure whether to go with ivory or black though.

    I would add a black petticoat. 

    Black doesn’t always look gothic, it depends on how you wear it and the overall theme of your wedding. My SO asked me last night if I’d ever thought about wearing black. I admitted that I do want to.

    The dress is mucho bueno. I like it!!! With the options I mean that black sash looks pretty Good on you as would me or others. But gun to my head I would say no black sash and I like option A. oF THE TOP 3 PICTURES i REALLY LOVE THE FIRST ONE AND HOW SUPER DRAMATIC IT IS. tHE third one is also a great choice and I keep having a hard time deciding between the two. Argh So many options lol:) I would go with the 3 third on the top right. I mean as much as I like the first one I cant wear it for my wedding, I tried on a mermaid/trumpet and didnt like how my bum was out there on display. I felt like a red thumb sticking out. So thats why even though I heart 1 I go with  numero tres!!!!! God Bless  sunshine!!!!!!!!
