I love hearing that you are making the Allure 8919 your own. I am doing the same.

I love everything about the dress, but I’m having straps made from some of the extra fabric from the hem line (when it’s shortened).

Hope you still love your dress!

I too purchased 8919 and had (have) some nervous regret.  Im considering asking if they can adjust the bow in the back so its a traditional horizontal bow.  Did you explore this as well?  Is it even an option?

Im also struggling with veil options. I think a plain cathedral length would be best so as not to hide the detail in the back.  No clue still though. : (

 I added a belt as well.  Def. helps.  Do you have pics of your adjustments?

@mdbee23 already knows, but I’m a 8919 too! I finally have a pic of it with the belt I actually ordered, so I thought I should post.

I’m the opposite — I have zero dress regret and can’t help but jump up and down in it every time I try it on. I definitely feel the more beautiful than I ever have. I love it.

I’m taking the bow off completely, though. I might make a headpiece out of the crystal detail on the back, or add it to the veil. I’m also adding crystals to the buttons down the back as they had done with other Allure dresses I’d tried on.

@7monthbride:  that’s a great idea of what to do with the bow! I think the bolero looks fantastic.

@7monthbride:  Is this the white?  I am hesitant to order it in white before seeing it (the salon only has ivory.)  I love the ivory but have been searching for a picture of the white before I place my final order!
