Hello everyone…so I fell in love with the Allure C170, but I couldn’t find any shops that carried it anywhere even remotely local to me. One shop carried an “exact replica” by Marilee Madison…so I ordered it, but I can’t seem to find a picture, or even a bridal company at all, by the name of Marilee Madison…did I just waste $2,500.00 on a gown that doesn’t look like the one I wanted?? I found a dress by Madison (Richman Group) which has a similar top, but the skirt is not the same at all…please tell me this is not the dressI ordered?? Does anyone have a pic. or has anyone else heard of the Marilee Madison replica?? I have to wait another two months before it even comes in and I’m starting to panic…please help!!

Here’s a thread with some ladies talking about both dresses.

Thanks, I did see that one…I’m just wondering if anyone has more info on the Marilee Madison dress…I’m specifically looking for a picture, and a confirmation of the company that makes the dress 🙂 I can’t find “Marilee Madison” as any type of gown or manufacturer or shop…and I really would like to see a pic of the dress I bought, as I’m worried that it’s the wrong dress

Don’t worry! I tried on both gowns yesterday! I have a picture of it, it’s kind of blurry and I tried to upload it but it’s not working. I know, Madison 4418 is no where to be found online and I wonder if this is because it’s a replica of an Allure gown? Not sure.
Anyways, you will not be dissappointed. It will be exactly what you wanted 🙂
I will try to get a photo to you.

I bought a madison dress by Richman Group — 5505. We are getting married in an urban downtown location, at a beautiful restaurant with exposed stone and amazing decor – very trendy. I thought the 5505 was my dress, but I needed to try something different – so I tried on the Madison dress that you are wondering about (Madison 5515). And it is absolutely beautiful!! The only reason I did not choose it was because we are getting married at a restaurant – and the skirt was too big to move around in the restaurant.
Here is the link: http://www.richmangroup.com/madison-wedding-dress-collection.php
It is the first dress. Unfortunately the model is sitting down, which doesn’t help. But I can describe the dress — the top is exactly the same as the allure, but the skirt, in my personal opinion, is more beautiful than the Allure dress. It layers, and goes out at the waist- the material looks more like my dress, 5505. THe material is light and beautiful. Unfortunately I did not take any photos.
Hope that helps!

@Memmers82: Just to follow up on my post: It isn’t a marilee madison – it is just madison. When I tried on my madison dress, it had two tags – mori lee madison, and madison — and it is the madison. Designers seem to copy each other quite quickly and it becomes very confusing! Hope I can be of help to you! I think you made a fantastic purchase and I can’t wait to see photos!
