    kellyk7:  I like the second dress better.  For some reason the first dress looks to me a bit like a nightie (night gown) that you wear to bed.  Love the back of the second dress.

    If thats what you like you should definitely try to see if you can find the Mori Lee 5262 I recommended. We just got in the store I work at and OMG its uhmazing, and it’s a true sheath style two layers one charmeuse, one lace – super light weight ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am in love with that allure dress..  It’s so similar to the styles I loved when I was trying on dresses.  The maggie is lovely too – I almost chose a very similar dress to that as well.

    I think that the Maggie has a beautiful back, but I agree that the front is not as flattering.  I know that I have seen an Allure with a nearly identical back, though I can’t recall which one at the moment.  I would definitely suggest looking at least once more.  I would also agree that you should try on Sawyer if you can.  I tried it on and thought it was gorgeous, but it showed more skin than I personally was comfortable with.

    I like both of them but the first one made me go WOW!!! I think that in white it will look absolutely stunning. Only thing is: if you’re not in love, keep looking and no, you don’t need to have THAT moment like on “say yes to the dress” where you are crying and hearing angels singing! You just need to like it enough that you don’t actually want to take it off immediately or when the consultant asks you to. And enough to want to go back and try it on again and again ๐Ÿ™‚ If neither of these make you feel beautiful and amazing, keep looking, it’s worth it ๐Ÿ™‚

    My wedding is in March 2015 and I just recently placed my order. They can get the gown to you fast and if you’re really running out of time you can grab a sample one you’ve fallen in love with, get it drycleaned and take it to your seamstress to get it to fit. I’ve seen many girls grab a dress 6 or 8 sizes too big at the last minute and their seamstresses working wonders within a couple of weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck with your dress ๐Ÿ™‚

    kellyk7:  FYI ~ Because of your post, I am now the proud new owner of the Melanie. LOL

    I saw you in that dress, my heart jumped and I purchased it today! LOL 

    If that helps you in any way decide… go with that one. It is a show stopper and looks AMAZING on you.

    They are both beautiful but different. The Allure one I also tried on and loved it but was out of my price range.  It’s a little sexier than the Maggie on you.

     Have you tried Allure 9068?  It is gorgeous with a lace back.  I tried it on and thought it was my dream dress.  I actually went with a Maggie Sottero that I found for 1/2 the price on EBAY and I LOVE it!

    I like the Allure but I may be biased because I am wearing the Casablanca 1975 which is somewhat similiar.

    I like the 1st one better, it fits you better, not sure the Melanie will give you enough support for the girls. If yiu will be dancing, you don’t want to worry about that. but, I love the back. But, the front is what most pix will show and the 1st dress is more flattering for your upper body, your waist looks thin, and train is gorgeous. just take your time and try them on again and again, just to make sure!
