    Mine is not Maggie, its Impression Bridal, but its a similar style in that it is fitted and has the wavy bottom. I absolutely love those wavy bottoms and think it would work so perfectly for a beach wedding! It has less bling the one you have on, but only because I knew I did not any bling under my arms! Too much chance for a rash loL! I personally love love love the second one on you. I think its absolutely gorgeous! But obviously you have to love it! I think sometimes we try on so many dresses and its easy to get confused! My first time out I was very confused by then end. I'd go back and try on the ones you liked again with a clear head and see if you get that feeling with any of them! Can't wait to hear what you decide on!

    Oh.okay Iimpression have some sexy dresses..I am going to do just that go back with a clear head for a second go around. Will keep you guys posted

      tyrebride2b2013 - I tried on about 20 dresses and went to 3 shops.  The one I picked felt FABULOUS on but I didn't think it was the one because it was strapless and I didn't want strapless because I have broad shoulders and I kinda think I look like a Quarterback without straps...  My daughter picked out the dress so I tried it on anyway.  I had my daughter taking photos of me in the same pose with every dress I tried on.  I wanted to be sure I looked as good in the pictures as I thought I did in the mirror.  Anyway, turns out that I liked the way this dress looked in the pics and I knew it felt so great on so I went back to the shop the next weekend and tried on my favorite 2.  That one dress that my daughter picked out just felt so right and looked so suitable for my laid back beach wedding yet I still looked and felt like a bride.

       

      I also waited to the last minute because I wanted to lose weight too but I got down to 6 months before and knew I had to do it.  Apparently they can alter the dresses down 4 sizes, which would be about 40 pounds.  So if you plan on losing between 0 - 40 pounds, you're safe to order your dress now. 

       

      And if I had to pick one of your dresses.... I would say #3 from the ones Evknowsitall's post earlier on this page is my favourite one.

       

      I got a call my dress is in.  I get to try it on tomorrow!  YAY!

        Thank you so much CDNbridejoanne, I am trying to lose atleast 30 lbs so that's great. I am trying to decide on my dress by the end of the month so fingers crossed.  I am going to take the advice from here and go back and try on faves with a complete dress look.  Thanks for letting me know your favorite too.  Good luck on your fitting tomorrow.Keep us posted!

              I found my dress! It's Allure 8966. I don't have any pictures of me in it - I couldn't try it on because the sample was too small.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was it and cried without even having put it on (which is huge for me as I'm not a cryer). The problem now is do I order the dress without ever having tried it on? One of my friends did it and couldn't be happier.  If I don't end up liking it I won't have time to order a new dress. Help!!   http://www.allurebri...lquC-YVdE.gmail
