Hiii everyone! So we recently had to cancel our original wedding plans due to COVID and have decided to a do a mini wedding instead. Our new venue looks like an adult candy land and I wanted to change up my look. I already purchased my gown last year and won’t be able to return it but I am thinking of dyeing the bottom pink to kinda go with the theme. I’m not a traditional bride to begin with so I don’t truly feel like brides need to wear all white nor will I have a veil. Just looking to have some fun and enjoy the day. What do you think? The first picture is what I’m thinking of doing and the 2nd is my actual dress. Dyeing Bottom of Wedding Dress 1

    I think this is super risky and I’ve read that the dyes don’t ‘take’ to certain types of material very well. It could end up being splotchy. I’d go for cotton candy hair accessories and shoes to save the stress! Or bite the bullet and buy the ombré dress instead and try sell off your white one?

    Take it to professionals to due. Not all modern fabrics can take dye. Natural fibers are easy, they soak it up, like a sponge, like cotton balls, and when most liquid is squeezed out, dye changes are then rinsed in a stableizing solution. But polymer fabrics start as liquid plastic, which is chemically dyed while hot, then cooled and run through a machine still very warm that squeezes it like a thousand little toothpaste tubes of thread! hat cool and harden. Some are mixed with natural fibers, loke poly-cotton. Most luxe fabrics are either silks and cottons, very high price, or the imitation polymers, what most of us with gowns under $5000 have. Laces may be natural or poly, often a different thing from what they are attached to.
    Without a sample of your fabric to experiment on, you have no idea if individual threads can absorb dye, or just be coated with it and rub off or rinse off when worn. Like trying to dye clear fishing line. It could be there is some rayon or dyeable fabric. But who knows.

    I have also heard that some fabrics don’t take dyes. What about a color over skirt?
