After looking at a few dress shops in Denver (hour + away), I found/bought an amazing dress at a shop around the corner from my house. I wanted to buy a used gown, but I didn’t fall in love with any I tried on. I bought my dress from a locally owned shop in town (Encore Bridal), so that makes me happy. It was $744 w/o tax. I’m petite and it looked fantastic on me (5’0 35″-28″-35″)
I have some pictures of me in the dress, but they don’t look that great because the dress is too big on me, and you can’t see the detail of the lace. I may post those later when I upload them to my computer.
Anybody else have this dress?!?

Hi, my Allure 2302 in ivory is arriving in the next month or so – I tried the gold/ivory in store so am hoping i’ll love the ivory just as much. Was just perfect for me, it had enough detail to be interesting but not too much going on so I got swamped in it. Fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately no pics yet, have to wait until it arrives:) How are you planning to do your hair/accessorize?

@ msdolooney: I think I’m going to wear my hair down, something like Katie Holmes hair.
I’ll probably do fake diamond/pearl earrings and necklace, or some fun green earrings/necklace (my color). What about you?

@ms. rice crispy treat:
Not only are we dress twins but colour too – my flower girl/boy are in sage green as is the groom and my bridesmaids are in a blackberry colour. Am looking at sage pearl drop earrings, a vintage brooch and my hair like this or a ribbon wrapped double headband & brooch in the hair.
