So I wrote another post asking about two different dresses. Maggie’s – Belinda
Discontinued – found a sample for sell, last one, really liked it blah blah…
so the story continues! And I need your help! and opinions! and When you decide please let me know why you chose your choice! 🙂
Okay guys! I decided not to get that Belinda, and not the Kendra either! The Belinda had been in the store acctually for a decent amount of time and was too many sizes (10 sizes larger) larger to alter without affecting the look of the dress. I did however find one online in smaller size, but I’m worried it will still be too big to alter (4 sizes larger) without affecting the shape, line, and look of the dress. I don’t want it to be obvious. Plus it is now competing with another dress! So I need opinions!!!!
I will be posting pictures of myself in the Allure dresses later this evening! I want the most figure flattering dress. I am finding myself leaning toward 8865 because I felt it made me look a little slimmer/ complimented my body more.
What do you guys think?
Take a chance on the Belinda (buy offline – heavier alterations – chane that something may be wrong with it)
Or go with one of the Allure gowns I am also in love with!
REMEMBER – I’m getting married at Disneyland – Out of horse drawn carriage! 🙂

I chose Belinda because it’s a softer, more gentle flow.. I don’t like the stark dropped waist of the last Allure and I’m not a fan of the heavy embroidery on the first allure.

8868 looks almost identical to the Belinda
So either of those you can’t go wrong with if you truly like the shape/make of it.
The 8865 looks a bit heavier, and the detail on the skirt is abit distracting.

I think the skirt on 8865 is gorgeous! I also like the banded waist and the embroidery on the bodice better than the other Allure.

I like the Belinda and the last Allure much better than the middle dress. With all the detail on the top, I prefer a cleaner looking, simpler bottom.

Remember that the belinda dress would have to be altered down 4 sizes!

I think I’m taking Belinda off the table unless I can find one online close to my size. Everyone says it’s really not advised to alter a dress up or down more than 2 sizes, if you do you can lose the lines, look, or ruin the dress, and that’s too much stress for me. I have one more appt. at another bridal boutique, so we will see how that goes! 🙂
But I would still like votes/ and opinions on the two Allure gowns, and why!
This is a picture of me in the 8865

That dress definatley looks way better on you than the model! It would be perfect for a Disney fairytale wedding.

I think the 8865 looks fantastic on you! Very fairytale-esque!
