I always said if I did strapless I would do a sweetheart neckline because I think it looks so much better. With that being said, every dress I tried on that was just strapless, every time they told me that it would be no problem at all to take a strapless and turn it into a sweetheart. I even ask one lady if almost all strapless dresses can be made into a sweetheart neckline and she said yes. Personally though, I LOVE the Mikaella dress so much. It is gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚ Try Maggie Sottero for the corset back. Most of her dresses have the corset back and I am going to go and see if I can find one similar to the Mikaella you like. They are both gorgeous dresses though!! ๐Ÿ™‚

My dress isn’t in yet, should be here any day now, and it’s kind of “scalloped” so it dips slightly.  And actually it’s an Allure gown too!  Style no. 8593.  I also was looking for a sweetheart, but found that this was much more flattering for me.  I would say to try more styles, I think both dresses are very nice, but the second one is much more striking for me.

PS. We are so alike! I was thinking that as I was reading your post. I hate taffeta too! And I love sweethearts & corset backs! ๐Ÿ™‚

You need a fresh approach. Stop thinking about those two and start browsing each and every possible gown…. you’ll find yours.

I had been agonizing over a similar choice for many months, then I started doing some “free” browsing, not selecting the “perfect gown” in my head before browsing… and there it was, I found theone and only. Which, btw, does NOT look like any of the two gowns I was agonizing over

Good luck!!!

second dress made me gasp, BUT i think you could fake the look by modifying the david’s bridal strapless dress and adding a flower and a sweetheart neckline…  but i agree maybe you need a fresh approach and to start all over again…

I freakin LOVE the second dress.  I think it’d be perfect as is.  I can’t see the back but the front is amazing.  I’m not sure if that helps at all!  I hope you can figure it out soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I love, love, love the second dress.

With that said, I got engaged six months before my wedding. I then bought another dress in June/July for my September wedding. Worst case scenario, you can buy the rush shipping for the dress.

I also got my dress altered in one week before the wedding. Yes, they weren’t as significant as yours will be but you have time!

Would alterations make the dress the one you love? If so, buy the dress!

If not, then keep looking. No sense in buying a dress that you don’t love. Keep looking and you will find it. Don’t stress over the timeline, you will be fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are looking for this dress (Mikaella #1406) and would consider unworn and unaltered by not technically *new*, please either reply to me here or email me at [email protected] – one of my best friends just canceled her wedding and my wife and I are trying to find a new home for her wedding dress. It’s a Mikaella #1406, size 12, never worn and not altered, in the bag. My friend was planning on getting this altered to fit her (sz 6) but called things off before getting there. I can answer any questions you might have.

Many thanks,
Jeremy Smith
