I’ve always had this image of a beautiful one shoulder dress with huge ruffles on the bottom as THE dress. I found an amazing dress by San Patrick (mimmicked by Allure Bridal) and knew I had to try it on. After arriving at the store my consultant picked out a dozen dresses for me to try on just so I could get a feel for what I liked and didn’t like. She saved my one shoulder for the end. But before we got there I fell in love with the Pronovias Marta dress (see photo), we accessorized it and I stayed in it for a good 20 minutes before going to the next dress. When we arrived at my dream dress they only had a size 6 so I put it on and we got it to almost zip but couldn’t get it all the way. It was the only sample they had in the store and wouldn’t be getting any other sizes until later in the week. I tried it on and was in love, it was perfect but I had to go back and try the Marta dress on. I wound up walking out the store with a deposit on the Marta dress and 2 hours later started thinking about my dream dress. I know everyone has second thoughts but I’m really torn between the 2. I have 24 hours to decide the store said (I couldn’t take a photo of the other dress since I hadn’t paid for it) and the dress I purchased is a final sale, no returns, no exchanges.

I wish I could see the other dress… can you see if they can extend the 24 hours you have to decide till the other sample size comes in? If you tell them you’ll definitly be buying one of them they might be OK with it… they still get their money either way…

It’s hard to say without actually seeing you in the other dress, but I do love the one you are wearing in your post!

It would be nice to see you in the other dress, but the Marta is absolutely GORGEOUS on you!!! I love the detailing on the skirt and the little beaded belt. You look stunning in it!

Thank you everyone – after another sleepless night I’ve ordered the 2nd dress.
Thanks again and I really appreciate it.

I love the Marta but San Patrick makes beautiful dresses, of course. Wear both maybe? One reception and one wedding?

The Allure dress was my runner up as well!!! I loved the way the skirt swayed and that it looked very intricate without a hefty pricetag. I ultimately went with a different dress because it made me feel more bridal than the Allure. However, out of the Allure and the Marta, I prefer the Allure and thing it porbably looks amazing on you, (judging by your figure in the Marta). So my vote goes to the Allure.
