So ive been trying SO many dresses on, Must be over 30 by now. I was originally going for ball-gowns but my mum asked me to try mermaid and i actually love it. So i tried a few that i have really loved (Mori Lee 5108) but ever since i saw dresses by allure couture i cant get them out of my head.
The problem is allure couture dresses arent exactly in my budget. My mum keeps saying she wants to help and that if i love a £2000 dress then we will work it out, but i havent lived with her since i was 17 and everything was messy (and still is with her new husband) and i know that shes really not in any position to do that, so i would like to find dresses like these that are more affordable, so that she doesnt need to contribute.
To put it in perspective my two potential dresses are Mori Lee 5108 £800 and Mori Lee 1667 (£1000). Though I am prepared to stretch a little further.
So Bees, my question is can anyone suggest any other dresses with these sorts of features:
I know this is a big ask because they get expensive with beading but i thought id ask!
Here are the ever tempting allure dresses (im too scared to try them on incase i fall in love with them):
C241 (dont know how much this one is)
and C208 (£1500)

Mori Lee 1922 and 1907 could be dresses to look into. I’m not sure of the prices but as you already know Mori Lee can run cheaper than Allure. Good luck in your search!

- Wedding: August 2014 - South Bonson Pier & Community Centre
I was in love with the same Mori Lee (5108, $800) but my Mom vetoed it because of all the tulle. I ended up falling in love with an Allure (8966, $1300). No pics, but I hope that helps!

Definitly look into Mori Lee’s collection, very good prices! My madeline gardner will cost me just over $3300 because of all the crystals top to bottom, then I found Mori Lee 1922 for just over $1500 and have fallen in love with it! Not sure if I should make the switch. (made a thread about it too) argh! good luck!

@Rachael1287: Hi Rachel, I see your from London, have you been to Miss Bush in Ripley, Surrey? They are hugely popular and have a great range of dresses and prices and I’m sure they could help you find a particular style.

@Rachael1287: Have you thought about contacting Jasmines bridal to get a quote on having the dress made? Thry seem to do really beautiful work and many bees have had dresses made form them! Just a thought if you really love the dress and its out of your price range!

@weddingbound: I think if i fall in love with the allure when i try it ill probably end up doing that. I think my mum is very against the idea though, and to be honest id be worried that the dress might not fit the same/hold in the same?
@StarLight0789: I cant find the 1922 anywhere! Argh!
@British_Bride: I just checked their website and by the looks of it they are brands that will probably be too expensive 🙁 But thanks!

what about allure 8952?? I tried it on, it was about $1500 here. In the photos of the model the skirt look assymetrical, but it isn’t. Here’s me in it
There’s also a dress by Wtoo.. i think it’s called Hera that looks very similar, although I have no idea of the price
