    I personally dislike that Allure gown. It is wayyy over the top IMO. I do LOVE that blush color it comes in though!

    I love the Gemma gown. I dont think that the 2 really compare.

    @chicbride14:  i like the gemma but i would have an issue with how popular it is. for that reason alone i wouldn’t get it, although it is a stunning gown. i love the idea of the allure ballgown, but i think there’s too much texture and would prefer it with a satin skirt.

    i really love the other ballgown you posted. i would pair it with a sparkly belt to give it a little more zing – this one gets my vote!

    although the lace gown looks amazing on you, its definitely a mature gown, so i wouldn’t chose that one if i were you (just my opinion)

    you have really great taste! let us know what you end up choosing 🙂

    @chicbride14:  I love you in that first gown you have on! I agree with the PP about the lace gown.

    That ballgown is INSANE!

    The texture, the beading, the SIZE! I LOVE it!

    LOOK, really LOOK, at your photos.  The ones you saw on websites and the ones of yourself.  You are really all over the bridal gown map. 

    You need to first work on shape/silhouette before soaking up comments on beading, flowers, etc.  Don’t put cart before horse.  You look kinda tiny to me.  Have you tried on any sheaths? 

    Also, you didn’t mention venue.  Where’s the location?

    I LoVE the Allure! IMO (and remember, ladies, this is just one opinion) Ive never quite understood why the Gemma is so popular. But, that’s why there are so many different styles of bridal gowns. 

    I have an Allure. Not couture, but still…
