I got this dress too! I paid $750 + $200 to rush order it so it would arrive within 2 months. I live abroad so I wanted to have the first alteration when i come visit in June. Do you mind sharing how much you guys paid for it? Also, did they take a hollow to hem measurement? I have to get the bottom custom cut for some reason which she also charge me another fee for…

I love the dress on everyone!  I got the same dress and got the phone call today that it is in!!  I CAN’T wait to go pick it up on Monday!  I ordered the March 23rd, exactly one month from today, but I am worried because they don’t have any alteration appts open until June 7th which means I can’t pick up my dress until June 24th which is 2 days before my wedding!  Not going to work, especially since I want to take bridal portraits. Also, the sample dress I tried on didn’t have the flower and I didn’t even know about it until I came home and googled my dress.  I wonder if my dress will have it on there. And I have been pondering the sweetheart neckline and I think I am going to go for it. 

@washingtonbride…I paid $595 for mine and they didn’t charge me a rush fee because they told me it “is an quick delivery dress from the Allure”. 

@Roxy…LOOOOVE the belt…too bad I can’t pull that off.

P.S.  What does everyone plan on wearing for jewelry?  I was going to wear my Grandma’s pearl necklace, but it is 27 inches and, unfortunately, didn’t look right at all.

Also, what do you plan on wearing under the dress?  (Hope that isn’t too personal)  The consultant told me that I can’t wear a bra so I am wondering about the other unmentionables.  I don’t want to wear a spanx or anything like that because I am getting married outside, in Texas, in June.  It will be a tad on the warm side.  Plus, I can’t remember how see thru the dress is.

You all look so beautiful!  Rudebaga, what style petticoat skirt did you wear… a trumpet or a-line? Where did you purchase one?  I love the sweetheart neckline, it looks fabulous on you.  Roxygirl, it’s amazing how much that gorgeous belt takes that dress to a new level of glam!  To answer other questions, I think I’ll be wearing my great-great grandmother’s antique pearl and blue diamond necklace.  It’s very simple and it will only add to the dress. 

What shoes have you chosen?  Has anyone chosen a veil?  Congrats everyone!

tater668, the skirt I was wearing underneath the dress was a mermaid skirt..fitted through the waist and hip, flared out around the knees.  I was able to order it through the bridal shop I got my dress at.  It was $69.

You girls look great in this dress!  I was liking the christina wu 15417 but it was a little pricey and I wasn’t loving the top of the dress.  I like that this is fitted, but has a train still, still has the ruffles I like, but is a little more understated on top which seems to even out the bottom that is more funky/non traditional.  I love the sweatheart alterationa and LOVE that belt, that would be the perfect addition!  Plus the price seems really great too.  Roxygirl would you be selling the belt after your wedding?  I hope I can find this dress to try on!  How tall is everyone who tried on this dress?  I’m only 5’2″ and wanted a fitted waist that made me look taller but sometimes the mermaid fit makes people look short.  Is this considered mermaid?

p.s. the dress looks so much better on you guys than the model!

Everyone…this dress looks beautiful on you. I tried on this dress before but thought I like the other one better. But seeing this thread makes me want to go back and tried it on again.

@clody where did you buy yours? the one I went to want to charge rush order.

I bought this dress some time back already. . .

I’m so happy to see other brides wearing it 🙂

I truly love it. . . and I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day!

so here is a pic when I first tried it on a sample 1-2 sizes smaller:

I don’t think I’ll have a veil like the one in the picture. . .most probably it’ll be a birdcage veil or just a facinator. . .

regarding jewelry, I have not really decided what I’ll be wearing. . .

and btw, I’m just wearing a corset underneath, and the dress is ivory.

@cherimoya – I bought my dress at a bridal shop in Houston.  It took four weeks to get in.

I have a question for everyone…are you able to sit down in your dress???  I am not able to.  I think it is because of where the waist hits me.  Also, how is everyone wearing their hair?
