    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!!!!

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. :o(

      Oh no... My post didn't come through... :o( I hate when that happens.

      I wanted to say thank you ladies!! you are all soo very AMAZING!!! I appreciate your kind words and sharing your experiences with me. I honestly don't know what I would do without all of you!!

      I have made my decision to stick with the dress I bought. I really don't want to buy two dresses and have to worry with selling one, so I just need to go with my gut! :o) When I tried on the mermaid I remember saying how much I LOVED the mermaid, I felt sexy and bridal and it was unique and different which was soo me!.. I get to keep the flowy poof that I originally loved about the Allure without having the abundance amount of poof. My mom also reminded me that even though I loved the Allure, I just stood there saying I love the top but the bottom is too puffy. One thing Alex requested was no crazy poof. The only complaint I had about the mermaid was the flower above the breast but I plan to have it removed and affixed to a pin for my hair.

      Here are some non-fuzzy images from my camera. (Or at least not as fuzzy as my phone)

          +1... the fuzzy photo didn't do this dress or you any justice (way to hold out on us).  Great choice! you've got fantastic curves and I'm feeling a bit jealous.  I can't believe you were considering hiding them.

             lol... Sorry Ladies!.. I totally forgot my future little sis took pictures with my camera as well..  Thanks Tova, I think you just brought a little wet spot to my eyes!  I don't have fantastic curves but this dress makes it look that way now that I see it. Whoo hoo.. <--- that's always a major plus!!

              Finally my turn! This is me and MY fuzzy phone camera pic in my Allure 8815. I never thought I could have romantic feelings toward a dress lol. We are taking the hips quite a bit and lots of hemming to take from the bottom and sides.
