Hey girl, okay so I looked through and saw some pictures of both dresses you tried on because you sound a lot like myself and I feel like you should stick with your gut and wear the mermaid dress. I also tried on some dresses that looked just like the allure, i may have even tried on that exact dress and i loved them all, so pretty and flowy and SAFE. when i tried on the mermaid i had no idea if i would like it and i loved it, i felt sexy and definetly like it fit the beach scene a little more. it was hard for me to take off those princessy dresses because they really are beautiful but i did get a different feeling with the mermaid that made me choose it. I think the mermaid is a little more unique and unexpected and its important to feel sexy & beautiful on your wedding day. I know if i showed people pictures of me in dresses like the allure they would all be like "wow i love it" because whats not to love really ? but the mermaid added more character and like a previous post stated, that day there is only going to be ONE dress in the room and noone is going to be thinking about why you didnt wear a princess dress when you are rocking the mermaid and it looks damn good!!!! I had to go back to the store and try on my mermaid one more time because i kept remembering how "pretty" i looked & felt in some others & then when i put it on again i just knew it was my dress. sorry for the long rant but i feel like i know how you feel lol. go try them both on again and tell us what you decide!!!!

I wasn't sure about it at first but my FMIL told me it looked amazing on me and after trying it on a 2nd time I was sold. Bought the dress on the spot and took it home with me. I posted it several pages ago.. But over the weekend my FI's step-mom and dad wanted to see my dress, so I showed them a picture.. I think they said it was pretty, but I can't even remember, all I can remember is they asked why I didn't go with the Allure 8862 when I showed them the pictures of both.
I have the dress at home so I'm wondering if trying it on for my mom and my bridesmaids will make me feel better.. but I'm so torn now and feel like I may have made the wrong decision. (
