Are you putting crinoline under your wedding dress?

I tried on my Maggie Sotero dress yesterday, and they told me that I needed to add a layer of crinoline so that it didn't look too flat on the bottom (PIB).  But of course, it costs extra to attach to the dress and after the fact, I felt like I may have been suckered into getting it ... or maybe it does need it.  But I've been second guessing myself alot lately. Any thoughts?

Well, you can buy a fairly inexpensive crinoline slip, so I would not pay to have crinoline added to the dress.  Plus, it was hot on my wedding day and I took that crinoline slip off immediately after the ceremony.  I was SO much cooler without it on.

i'm wearing one....and i'm thinking that i'm going to take it off after the ceremony too, like Dana did...it is f-ing hot....even in an air-conditioned store!  They are only $50 at Davids, but i'm sure you can find one on eBay or something for cheap....a girl i work with bought one and never used it...so she sold it to me for $20....

Honestly I dont think your dress needs it!  I have a Maggie dress too (Victoriana) and I dont plan on wearing one...even though my dress is supposed to be very full at the bottom, I like it better without it.

Thanks ladies, I just called the shop and put a hold on attaching the crinoline to the dress, I have an appointment to try it on again, without it.  Cross my fingers.

I am going to wear a colored hot pink slip! I think having a full dress is important.

I could/should have a crinoline slip but I like my dress better without it and I don't want my dress to be too princessy and I agree with the fact that it's about 100 degree difference without it on! I couldn't wait to get that thing off! But you shouldn't have to pay extra for them to add it to the dress if you do want it just buy a slip.... and then you can save some money and opt to take it off later if you change your mind.

in the infamous words of whitney houston... "aaw hell to the nawww"


it's already august when i'm wearing the "big" dress - and adding the crinoline  -shooot - i'd probably sweat enough to go down to a different weight class if i was a wrestler in high school...  my dress doesnt need it and i dont like the full princes look on me...


um, so to answer to your pregunta - no i will most certainly not be wearing crinoline underneath my dress. =)
