Yes I was in clackamas. Small world! I live in Albany though. Where are you located and where are you getting married? I'm getting married I'm Turks and Caicos in November. I'd love to see a picture of the dress on you! I didn't want you much of a poof bc we are boating back to a private island to get married and just didn't think it would work. It's such a timeless dress!
I'll also be doing coral in my bouquet and shoes. DIY coral glitter shoes!
Thanks for all the open opinions! It's nice to have the honesty!!!
I'm in Portland. Since my Fi and I are both transplants we decided to have a DW in Puerto Morelos, MX.
I thought the added poof gave for a more dramatic and Mexican Senorita feel (which I love). The pic is with a mermaid slip underneath which has 3 added layers of crinolin which was a bit much. Since I'm 5'10", I'm letting my shoe height dictate how much crinoline I add, if any, to avoid the added cost of hemming. I'm in my bare feet in this pic and can only wear an .5" heel with the full 3 layer crinoline slip. I can wear 3" heel if I forgo the slip altoghether.
I can't wait to see yout DIY coral shoes.
