Hi Allure 8815 brides (past and present)! I am totally beyond in love with this dress but two things are preventing me from buying and I am hoping you all could help me out.
1. Past brides who wore this dress–is it hard to dance in? Me and FH are big dancers and I am nervous that the mermaid style will prohibit me from “getting down” 🙂
2. I really would like to get a white dress, but the store only had Ivory to try on. But, I have heard that the white version of the dress has more bronze beading instead of silver like the Ivory. I really wanted my colors to be on the cooler side (think baby blue BM dresses and blue orchids) and I don’t think the bronze would go well with those colors. Does anyone have a clear closeups of their dress in white and ivory that you could share?
I really appreciate it!!! Thanks a bunch!
BTW–this is my first post on WeddingBee 🙂

So I’m delayed in responding but I just came across this post! I’m an Allure 8815 bride and ordered by dress in the white/silver. I sent you a PM.
1. I keep in touch with another Allure 8815 bride that I met here on WB and she never complained about the fit of the dress restricting her (moving or dancing). Her wedding recently passed and I watched a video clip of her first dance and man does this dress look stunning, especially when being twirled around the dance floor! Even though it is considered mermaid style it isn’t a TRUE mermaid so you have a little more room to move around and be comfortable.
2. Allure only carries this sample dress in color ivory and according to my bridal salon Allure does not have a loaner program so I was unable to see it in the white/silver. I have a somewhat olive skin tone so the ivory color against my skin was ok but not exactly what I was envisioning. I did as much website stalking as I could and was able to get in touch with three brides who ordered it in the white/silver and asked them to send me pictures. The crystals/beading does give off more of a warm tone (especially in different lighting) but it’s still gorgeous. If you need pics let me know!
