I have the allure 2701!
All of these dresses are gorgeous and you all look lovely. I haven’t tried on dresses yet but would love a ballgown. My wedding is in August. How hot are they!?, and is it difficult to get around any? How about using the bathroom!? lol
My dress! It is actually a two piece believe it or not. Watters/Nori. I love how i could choose where the waist fell, as I am short torsoed and had a hard time finding the right hight waist. And it’s Soo light and comfortable! I didn’t get to try any “underpuff” on with it but but you can see how it would look in the model pic at bottom 🙂
Here’s my gown 🙂 It’s my dream dress. Sorry it’s not a clearer photo… you get the idea though! It’s an off shoulder vintage. Corset Back. Satin with tulle and organza overlay. Has fine glass beading all over the back and bodice and beading on the skirt too. Loooooong train, it’s a cathedral 🙂 No petticoat required, the skirt is very full. I found this by chance at a charity shop oneday, I paid a cool $50 for it. Saw an almost identical gown for $5000 while out with my mom. I scored! Cant wait for my big day <3
stephncollins: I think we are dress twins! Is that a Casablanca?
I love the beading! I had cap sleeves added to mine because I feel uncomfortable in strapless. I get to wear mine in 41 days!
My skirt doesn’t look very fluffy in this pic. I’m still deciding if I want to wear any kind of slip underneath to make it bigger.
The first picture is unedited, but the second and third I brightened or messed with contrast to show the detail since the lighting wasn’t great. This was just the sample size, so it will fit better later!
I tried on a few dresses and my group decided that ballgowns looked best. Here are a few I tried on. Please excuse my weird expressions, my group was randomly taking shots while I was talking 🙂
Dress # 3
Dress #4 (excuse the floppy cap sleeves)
Dresses #1 & 2 were both no’s but I loved parts of them. The glitter in the skirt of dress #2 was amazing ( I think it’s the Alfred Angelo Cinderella 205)
I love dresses 3 & 4, especially the back on dress 4!
Not sure which one I will pick yet, or if I will keep looking.
My dress is mermaid but this group made me so happy! You all look beautiful! There something so whimiscal about a ballgown that I love!
