Hello ladies! Please vote and help me pick between these 2 beautiful gowns. The Maggie Gown-Marianne is 2 sizes too big, the allure is in my size. I’m getting married in a church 🙂 Maggie Sottero-Marianne top, Allure Romance 2709 bottom.

Futuremrs15love: gosh they’re both beautiful! but i i had to pick one it would be the MS. I love the lacing on the bottom of the skirt as opposed to the top, middle of the skirt, it drags my eye to the full bottom as opposed to stopping in the middle of the skirt as thats where the visual interest ends. Are you going in that color for that one?

I hate the pointy cups on the Marianne but I see you tucked them in. Would you get it altered to be more like the bust on the Allure?

IzzyBear: I agree! I don’t like the pointy swetheart on the Marianne either so I would definitely alter it to look like the bust on the Allure 🙂

Futuremrs15love: well that makes it so much harder lol. I voted for the Allure before I saw that you tucked in the top of the Maggie. Do you have any pics where you’re facing foward? Did either one give you more of a “feeling” like it was the one? They both look so good on you!

I voted for the Allure, although the Maggie is beautiful!
I voted for it, cos I felt that it looks better without cutting you off just above the knees, and the Allure has a smoother finish with it.

Futuremrs15love: That was a tough one! They both look beautiful…but I voted for the Maggie, I live everything about it on you. Please let us know what you decide.

Futuremrs15love: Thats a tough call, they’re very similar and both look SO beautiful!! I voted for the MS because of the lace on the bottom. If it had cleaner lines like the Allure (dont care for the seam at the knees) it would be a 10/10. I love the Allure too, but dont care for the “bare bottom” of the skirt lol. I really dont think you can go wrong though, you look fantastic in both!

Futuremrs15love: I would definitely say the Marianne. Of course, I’m a little biased.

I voted for the Maggie. I like the lace on it and the design of the lace at the bottom!

The Allure took my breath away. I’m biased, though, because it’s pretty much exactly what I’m looking for (but with straps). I like how the Allure bottom almost blends into the floor because it has the raw tulle edge look, instead of the Maggie which has all the intense lace at the bottom. I don’t like trumpet style dresses where there’s a distinct line for the bottom skirt part (like the Maggie has), because I feel like it cuts the bridge up and looks strange. And the Maggie is too sparkly for me, I prefer the all-lace look of the Allure. Again, I’m biased, but I hands-down love the Allure!

I think the first one is a lot more dreamy!

Agree that the 2nd one drags my eye down. I prefer the detail on the MS. Both look great on you though.

The Allure is very similar to the dress that I am considering getting (Allure 2555). I LOVE how it fades to just tulle at the bottom. I like the Maggie too except where the skirt starts I don’t like how you can see the seam
