@techie:  

Thanks for posting the pics of that bride, techie. She looks stunning.

I’m so happy to see a bride wearing a chapel/cathedral length veil with the gown!

@AutumnLove:  

I agree that the Gotham bride definitely has extra crinoline under her gown. It looks completely different at the bottom to any other Gemma we’ve seen. The rosettes are so separated and defined. I’m definitely getting a crinoline – I want the bottom to be as big and poufy as possible.

@cherryblossomlove:  

Thank you for the link to the crionline! I’ve tried one in a bridal salon before and they said it was $250! This price is MUCH more reasonable. What are extenders??

@Vera Girl:  Question regarding the extra crinoline, bees: do you think that the crinoline is what’s making the rosettes more defined? By pushing them up/out or so you think it’s been steamed as well? The bridal boutique in Savannah where I’m ordering my gown offers a day of dressing assistant and I’m trying to decide if I’m going to spring for that (because this includes an additional steam the morning of) or spend the money to have their seamstress add crinoline underneath the skirt (They only charge $125 for this service and that includes the crinoline, so I like that idea better than wearing an extra piece/worrying about it moving or showing in pics)

hi ladies! i’m back from my wedding! 🙂 the gown was an absolute dream. it was a fluffy beaded ivory gown (so fluffy even that i would have to pick it up to walk!) and got a million compliments even without having to steam, add extra crinoline, etc. will be back to post the same day video and official pictures.

@shoegal_622:  Honestly, I’m not sure. That’s not a bad price for extra crinoline, especially since VW is asking for $300.

@k82612:  You look AMAZING!!! Hope you had a wonderful time!
