Torn Between Mermaid and Ball Gown/A-Line
When I would think about how I would look on my wedding day,
I always imagined a full and airy tulle skirt, not only because I think they
are romantic and special, but also because I have large hips and I thought a full
skirt would hide that. I went to Alfred Angelo to try on dresses, and although
I did love the full skirt of the A-line/ball gown, I was surprised to fall in
love with the mermaid silhouette.
Now I've been thinking, do you think it would be possible to get a mermaid
dress, and have a seamstress make a detachable tulle skirt?
My thought is to wear the tulle skirt for the ceremony and to take it off for
Has anyone ever done or seen anything like this? Also any idea where I could
get the tulle skirt made?
My dress budget isn't massive and I definitely don't want to get into a custom
order from one of the large bridal stores.
I am in the Orlando area if anyone knows of any specific places where I could
get a skirt made.
I attached photos of myself in two of the dresses that I liked the most.
Any input, advice, and guidance would be greatly appreciated!
