    honestly, if it were me…i’d take the gamble.  the general shape of the sposa is sooooooooo similar to the allure.  it is a risk though, because they are different designers.  just because the shape/silhouette is exactly the same doesn’t mean they will fit the same.  i settled for a gown in my first wedding though, and i’m determined not to do it again.

    good luck on your decision.

    i prefer the “Allure” as the material looks nicer and they are very similar dresses so I would go for the one with the nicest material!

    my dress is tulle on the bottom and i never ever thought i would go for tulle but it looked better on me…. if you can try on the Allure, it may help make your mind up.

    I would not buy it online as you don’t know how it’s going to fit / sit on you – i guess it depends on their return policy?

    In summary, I prefer Allure 🙂 good luck!!

    What is the return policy if the dress does not fit properly?

    Have you found/talked with a seamstress that could make alterations if necessary? Show a good seamstress your pics and get her opinion.  They have an eye for things.

    Could you do a day trip to a town with a bridal salon that does have the dress for you to try on?

    I personally like the 2nd one better. Not because it’s the “safe” choice. But because it looks better. It’s elegant, and just enough to make you say “WOW” Whereas, the top one — just looks like too much to me!

    Best of luck!

    @happybunny: it doesn’t matter if you wore it for Prom, i bet no-one will be thinking about that – no-one will make the connection I promise…. Tulle has more of a wedding feel… I think the satin may look too shiny but it’s up to you… i would really think about it especially if there is a no-return policy…….

    god luck!!
