So today I finally had one of those SYTTD-type moments. No tears, but this was the first dress that gave me the chills when I saw myself in the mirror! I’ve been to 5 salons so far, and everything before and after this one was just “nice”, and yet I’m still not 100% sure I should go for it… It’s also $350 over my 100% maximum budget, so that doesn’t help!
What do you bees think, yea or nay? This is the Allure 9000:
By the way, to any brides in MA – I SO recommend Precious Memories in Malden! It’s a huge store, the consultants are awesome and completely non-pushy, and they let you take pictures! Sharon, my consultant, was even kind enough to hold my phone so that I could have a skype videochat with my mom.

This one was one of my top contenders!!
ETA: Hey fellow VT bee, I didn’t see your name! I purchased my dress at a shop near home instead of up here (boston has super inflated prices)- PM me if you want. I ordered my dress at a shop in Delaware (near my childhood home) but they are going to ship it to me, and they had THE BEST PRICES. It’s way cheaper even having them ship it, and they’re authentic dealers, etc. etc. Let me know if you want to know more, it’s the only way I afforded my dream dress. I had resigned myself to finding another dress until they quoted me a price!! Knocked me off my rocker!!)

You look beautiful! When I bought my dress I got chills too. No tears, but extremely giddy and chills down my back. I HAD to SYTTD!

This is so stunning for you! I think there are a few similar Mori Lee dresses. Check out Mori Lee 1960, it’s quite similar.

@cranraspberry: That dress is so beautiful on you! I did a quick search and found this dress, which I’m guessing is cheaper than the Allure. I know it’s not identical, but hope this helps!

I’m usually not a big lace fan but WOW! The neckline and fit is PERFECT on you! I know it’s over budget but I don’t think you’ll be able to top that!
