- Wedding: September 2013
With so many beautitful brides choosing more fitted and dare I say, sexy styled gowns, I was tempted to stray from my dream look.
I was very girly girl growing up. I loved my ruffles socks (still do, matter of fact!), and often would play dress up in my mothers old dresses.
I have had the chance to wear evening dresses, never missed a chance. My friends jokingly call me elle woods. So it was no question that I would be wearing a ballgown on my wedding day.
I tried on many styles, to appease the persons in my wedding party. But when I tried on this “marshmallow bottom” so my sister coined. I couldn’t help but feel that it was it…
Sure there was things I wanted to change about the gown, but the feeling was there. I could commit to this dress.
So, off we went I waited and in a very short time my dress arrived. I tried it on, and it was just as I remembered. It had the feeling. But what it lacked were totally fixable. I wanted a large 1860’s ballgown with delicate 1950s sheer 3/4 sleeves. The only thing it lacked was the sheer sleeves and though it had the length for a big ballgown, it lacked the “stuff”.
One weddingbee classified fixed that problem. I cant thank my fellow bee enough… she has helped my complete on very important part of my wedding day look. And happy day, the crinoline arrived, its perfect for my need and makes me feel just how i wish on my wedding day.
Here it is, in its pouffy splendor!
I have tried it on with my dress, it compliments it perfectly! Currently my gown is having the sleeves added. I’ll upload and before crinoline and after once the dress returns from the dress shop. =)
