I mean… no, the dress doesn’t really match the same look and feel as everyone else but hey, you’re the bride! You are supposed to stand out! If it’s the dress you love, you can make it work.

I’m dark haired but very pale and I went with diamond white. It looked white in pictures but was warmer than stark white and suited my skin tone much better. Stark white doesn’t look as good on pale ladies, IMO. I do think you need to look for another satin Allure dress in Ivory so you can see the color though. I’m sure a bridal salon somewhere in your area has one, just to see the fabric so you can make an informed decision.

As for your third question, I agree that I don’t think either the veil or the flower crown match the dress. Why not do a really whimsical hair flower? Not this one specifically, but something with a similar feel.

I think something like that would be cute enough to go with your boho look but if it’s got a bit of feather and crystal, glam enough to match the dress.

P.S. I was an Allure bride too!

Removing the bling will depend on how it is attached. Satin will show any imperfections, so you may ruin the dress if the beading is embroidered straight onto the fabric. Some designers are willing to make alterations to designs. I know Casablanca does but I’m not sure about Allure. Its worth seeing if they are willing to.

I think a flower and a birdcage would be cute with that dress and be a better middle ground between your dress and the boho feel of everything else.

I wore Allure 8771
