Crinolin or Hoop Skirt??

Recommended Posts

My dress is a form fitting, dropped waist, with the option for either a full or flowing skirt. I like the skirt to be slightly full, but not too big - somewhere in the middle!!


I have tried both a crinolin and hoop skirt and can't decide.

The crinolin gives a better shape, but is soooo heavy and I'm worried about overheating under all those layers. I loved the built-in AC of the hoop skirt, but it gave a slight 'tulip' shape to the dress. And I seemed to trip over it a little while walking.


The dress is a Maggie Sottero - Rhianna Royale:

Any advice?

I am having a crinoline under my dress. Although it is heavier, I am not too worried about over heating, since I found the evenings to cool down compared to the days, and that will be when I am going to be dancing and probably getting warm.


If you prefer the look of the crinoline and you keep tripping on the hoop skirt, I would go with the crinoline.

I luv the dress! Personally, I'm also thinking about how I'm going to travel with my wedding gown. I actually read a suggestion that was buying an extra seat on the plane for your dress! How do you pack a hoop skirt? It can be flattened, right? If so, I'd probably opt for the hoop skirt, and just practice walking in it.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
