Hi All, I am a 40-ish first time bride. Don’t want a train of any significance (sweep ok), love lace/vintage feel. Church wedding, small luncheon reception.
Thoughts on this Allure dress (M476)? Don’t know if I can get it in time (looking for a “replacement” dress for an early mistake dress purchase).
If you don’t like, please suggest any and all alternatives (esp. any that might be quick to order).
Thanks a ton!!!

@WindyCityWendy: I love it! For a 40 something bride, or even me (23!) 😉 That lace is beautiful. I don’t know about the reliability of these sites, but you can get them rush cut… which might help you ! http://www.ebridalsuperstore.com/Dresses/bridalgowns/M476ame.asp

I love this dress. I’m wearing Maggie Sottero Bernadette which is a lot like it. Allure C155 is a lot like this, and David’s bridal has a keyhole lace dress thst is more of a column style dress. I forgot the number for it.
DB also recently released a full lace back dress that is more of an a-line. DB is your best bet for quick order.

i think it looks great and it would go perfect however you would want to wear it , alot of girls use lace and is fine so age doesnt really matter…it’s fine.

It’s gorgeous! And very age-appropriate, though i love it and I’m only 22..I think it’s the sort of dress that can cross age groups for sure! Beautiful.

I think it would look lovely on a bride such as yourself… but also I’d like to add that if I saw that dress I might just punch someone and take it, it’s so pretty. Exactly the type I wanted…

I was 37 when I married and wore a dress very much like this one. It was a Jim Hjelm. I loved it because it was a classic for any age. Would you be willing to buy a used dress if you are crunched on time? You might want to check some of the used dress sites like preownedweddingdresses.com for this dress or something similar. Good luck!
