So I think maybe I found the dress....

This is what I'm thinking. The only thing is I would like to get it altered to have colors underneath (photoshopped what it would look like), and I'm not sure if I would be able to find someone willing to do so or if perhaps I'm better off getting something custom made.

Thoughts/suggestions? Anyone know anybody who might be able to work with this?

    The dress is beautiful, but I am not quite sure about the colors either. Is there a significance with these colors?

    The dress looks great how it is, IMO. Is the colors something t o do with the theme or something you've always wanted?

    Our wedding is going to be rainbow themed. I'm a super colorful person and it pretty much fits my personality. I've seen a few other dresses that have rainbow color alterations (like the one below) but they don't have vertical ruffles like the dress I'm thinking about getting, so I'm not sure how complex it would be.

    The other thoughts I had were maybe getting rainbow trim on the ruffles.

    Your best bet is talking to a seamstress to see if it is even a possibility. It looks like the one you posted is colored tulle placed under a plain tulle skirt. It seems like quite a lot of work. Maybe you can incorporate rainbow in your shoes somehow? Or accessories?

    Ask the shop to talk to their seamstress and see what she suggests.

    I haven't bought the dress yet. This was only my second time dress shopping and I wanted to give myself some time before making any decisions. So far though - I really like this dress.

    These are good suggestions though. The next time I do a fitting I will ask their seamstress.

    Someone on here had a blue petticoat that popped out of the bottom of the dress. Maybe having layered petticoats of different colors would be easier? It would be pretty hot with all those layers though.

    Could you add a rainbow sash with a long tail down the back? I like the boldness of the colors in the picture you posted better than the photoshopped version. it pops way more against the white of the dress.

    Yeah, if I were to get it altered I would want the colors more bold. I'm just worried that the fabric the dress is made of won't show the colors through that well (pic shown below).

    So my options would be to

    -get the dress custom made in different fabric. I haven't contacted them yet but Wedding Dress Fantasy (http://www.weddingdressfantasy.com/) seems like a possible option.

    -get the dress as is and just get a rainbow veil or sash/shoes

    -get the dress and then get rainbow trim (similar to second picture below) on the edges of the ruffles, which might be an easier alteration to do than getting colored fabric

    Humm, what about a rhinestone sash that is all different colors? I'm sure you can find someone on etsy to make one for you. Or you can buy a plain sash and bedazzle your own.

    I'm also contemplating something like this. Sash could work - I'm just worried it won't go well with the details that go into the skirt.

    Love your dress! IMHO I think that the colors in between would ruin it, however, you could add the rainbow colors underneath to extend out of the dress, like this:

    @MrsBtobe - great idea & photo!

    Merisenda - Oh I love the way the rainbow tulle petticoats look (under the dress). That way it shows a pop of color when you glide around in your lovely white dress.

    I like adding the color through shoes,bouquet,jewelry etc. You could incorporate it through the BMs?
