Do i need a crinoline/hoop type thing?

Recommended Posts

Advice please ladies!


I´ve bought a gorgeous wedding dress, when i tried it on in the shop i was standing on one of those round boxes, the dress looked great, made me feel really slim, hid my hips etc. then when i tried it on at home, obviously without the big round box thing, it looked nowhere near as good. i think this must be because either they had really slimming mirrors at the shop (illegal surely?!?!) or the round thing i was stood on is essential to the way the dress looks, in which case, how can i get around that? Will i not look like a bit of a plonker if i have some sort of petticoat under a chiffon dress?


Here is a picture of the size zero photobucketed model wearing it.

What do you think? (Apart from me losing half my body weight?)

I'm not sure how crinoline would look under a chiffon dress. When I think crinoline, I think itchy, rough tutu material which you would be able to see the pattern of through the dress...KWIM? When you tried it on in the store on the box/platform thing, how long was the dress? Was it long and hang off and then when you tried it on at home it pooled on the floor? Maybe it needs to be hemmed?


Good grief I hope these darn bridal stores don't have trick mirrors! BangHead.gif

ah, that's one of the things i was thinking, when i tried it on in the shop she had me in these killer stilettos, so maybe my posture was better..... It does need taking up a wee bit, i'm a bit of a short-arse (as my dad tells me!)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
