Which slip?

At David’s bridal I was given a smaller slip to try on dresses. When I chose my dress I thought I would probably want a larger slip since it is a ballgown after all. I bought a larger slip and now I need some opinions. My son loves it with the larger slip but my mom said she doesn’t and isn’t sure...

I bought a larger slip and now I need some opinions. My son loves it with the larger slip but my mom said she doesn’t and isn’t sure why. My moh said both look good but she prefers the smaller slip as well. What do you all think? My dress still needs taken in by 4 sizes and I have lots of dress that’s dragging at the bottom that will need altered as well. Also, please don’t mind my awful carpet - I make a mess of it refinishing our furniture or my “Wedding diy corner” in the background.

    Ahhhh! I was looking on there at veils. I was mega dubious as some are so cheap but great reviews. Please let me know when it comes what it's like!

    I personally like the smaller one better! I like the more pronounced pleats.

    I tried this dress on and it's one of my front-runners! You look amazing in it! I prefer the less full skirt but both look great.

    I'm team smaller slip. Daughter had an A-line ballgown dress (with a lot of attached crinoline). She tried it on at the salon with a giant slip. Initially, she was sure she wanted one for the wedding. However, she ultimately decided to skip the big slip and just stick with the poof the crinoline provided because she felt like her skirt would stick out so much that guests and H would have trouble standing close to her. Even without the big slip, during pictures she kept having to adjust her skirt so H and others could stand close to her. Smiley winking

    The fuller one is prettier

    I love the smaller one, it makes the pleats lay so delicately. It's so elegant!

    Personally, I like picture #1! The bigger slip is just more dramatic, but in a good way! I love it. Smiley smile I feel like #2 could be perfect, maybe if it had some lace underlay? I'd have to see it to know, but I just had a vision.

    Smaller one suits the dress more I think. You look so pretty in both though!

    This is my dress too!!! I am planning on wearing it as is without any additional slip under it. I never really thought about putting one under it honestly, but it does add a little something extra to it! I think it depends on what you feel best in and when your wedding is. I’m getting married in Georgia, in July, so I don’t want extra material adding additional heat! Congratulations! It looks stunning on you! I’m sure you love it just as much as I do!!!
