I am new to the board and excited to join! I got engaged December 2012 and have been slowly planning my March 2014 wedding. Anyways, after months of dress searching, I finally put a deposit down on a dress. It is the Allure 9053 and it is nice, but just not sure if it’s “the one”. It is not what I initially wanted (which was a lace mermaid for my outside ceremony) but I do like it. I am planning on loosing at least 10-15lbs so my curves are in the right place, but I’m still unsure. Let me know what you guys think….

I think it’s beutiful and looks great on you! If it makes you feel better, I never put on a dress and had that “moment” or said it’s “the one”. I love my dress and don’t ever think about there being another one that could have been better.

It think it looks great on you! – but it’s hard to tell you what you want or how you feel about it. It’s not always about how it looks on you but how it makes you feel. 🙂

I think you look beautiful in the dress. The great thing about a simple dress is you can accessorize however you want. You can do a lace trimmed veil, if you wanted a little lace.

Thanks guys! I called the bridal shop and they have already placed my order, so I guess this is my dress. And you are right…I think once I loose a few pounds and accessorize I will be satisfied. Besides, I’m very picky and indecisive so I’m sure I will just find something wrong with the next dress lol. Just wanted to hear from others and make sure the dress didn’t look horrible or anything
Anyways, thanks again for your opinions!

I think it’s a beautiful dress, and will be much better once it’s fitted to you. Also, some Spanx or similar will work wonders!

I think it looks good now, but once you have it steamed so the pleating/folds of the skirt sit properly it will look fantastic!

@peonyinparis: Thank you! I’m hoping to loose enough weight so that I won’t need the spanx, but if not I will definitely have one ready to wear lol
