I went wedding dress shopping yesterday and fell in love with an Allure lace mermaid dress with a sweerheart neckline. They wouldn’t let me take photos in it and there wasn’t a style number on the dress so I’m not sure which one it was but it’s really similar to this one:
I’m having an outdoor ceremony in late July, am I insane for wanting this dress? I went with my sister and niece, and will go back and show my mom. My sister really liked it too but she’s just concerned because its nothing at all like want I thought was wanted (a simple, lace sheath like the allure 8800). I tried on a more simple dress that I also liked but I LOVED the other one.
It was the first dress I tried on and I kept coming back to it and when they put the marching veil on it just felt perfect. I don’t have to buy my dress for a couple more months so I can keep looking, but is it just foolish to keep searching when I already love a dress?

@Tphan: That is a beautiful dress! If you love it, I think it’s definitely the one and you should get it! 🙂

@Tphan: that’s such a beautiful dress!!! FI and I are doing a destination wedding on a beach in Thailand and it’ll be hot, but I’m still going to wear a lace mermaid with a semi-cathedral length train. You’re only going to be a bride once so follow your heart! 🙂

I am doing a lace mermaid in an outdoor garden wedding on a tropical island. I think lace is casual enough and the mermaid fit makes it fanciful. A perfect combination for an outdoor ceremony.

I think brides usually with their favorite dress and don’t try to tone it down for the ceremony, at least from what I’m seeing. I’ve been trying to find a really casual dress for the beach and the boutiques keep bringing me standard wedding dresses and showing me what other people with outdoor/beach weddings are doing and it seems the same as an indoor wedding. If you found what makes you feel special go with it!!

@Tphan: I’ll be an Allure 9018 bride in October! And we’re also having an outdoor ceremony with lots of pictures throughout the golf course (we’re getting married at a country club), so I’ll be trudging my dress along concrete, grass, dirt, possibly sand, you name it. I’m not particularly concerned, the bottom of all wedding dresses end up dirty by nights end anyway… It’s such a gorgeous dress, I say go for it!!! 🙂

@Tphan: If you love it then you should get it. Allure dresses are one of my favourite designers.
