Okay, so I tired on around 40 dresses in 2 days. I selected a gown today with just my mother there, because she loved it. I really like it but I’m not 100% sold on in yet. Please help me know if it’s the one!
My dress: Allure Courture C822
My previous favorites:
Mori Lee 1922
Maggie Sottero- Raquelle

While I love the train of the Allure Couture, I think the Mori Lee is the most flattering on you, OP.
It might have something to do with the lighting though in the first picture. The dress looks quite stark against your complexion.
You will KNOW if it’s the one — it’s a gut feeling. I didn’t get emotional over my dress, but I felt like it’s ME and I was beaming. So, you should find a dress you’d be beaming from ear to ear about!!

I can’t understand how people can prefer the Mori Lee when there are no photos of it taken from the front. It does look nice from the side, but In My Humble Opinion it looks like a level below the Allure, which just looks a higher quality all round (with a price tag to match, I bet!)
And compared to the front photos you have of the other dresses, seriously the one you bought makes you look 1-2 sizes smaller. It’s much more flattering.

I’m guessing that the Allure sample is very slightly too small for you, so if you got it one size up, 100% yes you got the right dress. I’ve never seen that Allure before, it’s gorgeous.

Th Mori Lee looks lovely – I like the train – but it’s impossible to say whether it’s the better choice when we can’t see a front-on view of you in the dress. I think the Allure, in the right size/fit, is beautiful on you and definitely more flattering than the last dress.

Yes, the Allure! The detailing is so elegant and classy, it looks great on you!
I didn’t have that teary-eyed “OMG this is my dress!” moment either- I had lots of regrets about my choice- but as the alterations and accessories fell into place I felt much more excited about the whole thing!

Thank you all so much for your help! I’m feeling better about my pick. I’m planning on having crinoline added to make the fit more of a mermaid/fit-n-flare. Hopefully, that will give me a more similar look that the other two gowns I liked have.
