I got the Allure 2710 in Champagne/Blush. It’s a big ballgown for sure with a long train. I was torn between this and the sherbet Lazaro 3108 but my fiancee hated the sherbet color. I went in willing to pay whatever and was thrilled it was only $1,650.
I got the Allure 8862, a ballgown, for $1100.00 +$150 to have the dress shortened by the people that make it by 5″ since I need 5-8″ taken off and that will allow it to be porportionately shorter (I am only 5’2″). Oh and all of the material is organza. I would have never expected to get a ballgown …
I’m mixing parts of Galia Lahav’s Jasmine, Pearl, Megan, Lian and Suzanne. It’s a fit n flare look, extra full skirt. Going for a major train.
Reception dress is another fit n flare, but more slinky. It’s based on some Downton Abbey dresses. I’m adding Galia Lahav’s Patchouli pearl draping in back to tie both dresses together. Keeping the crinolines on for girly twirl fun. Keeping it to ballet length. Mostly to keep from being stepped on, but rocking my uber girly sparkly heels and peeks of the exquisite lace on the crinoline hems is up there. My great great grandmother made an amazing silk lace that my mom had dyed to a silvery gray as it was permanently stained. Then the silk and lace blue ruffle my grandma made for my mom’s something blue on her crinoline. Mom did a pop of color before it was even named.
Day after is a replica of Irene Adler’s white dress in some color, not sure yet there, need the samples first. Most likely is a pale blue. So it’s a knee length sheath. Nice enough to wear to church, but not excessively fluffy.
I was honestly unsure what style I was going to go for. I did LOVE the lace gowns and as luck would have it, I fell in love with the trumpet style. I don’t normally go to the figure hugging option, but I love this gown. The price was $1,900, but as I am only 4’11 I have to pay extra to have the dress shortened by the manufacturer.
My dress is the Allure Bridals 9051
Tried on close to 100 gowns before I found my dress my second runner up wad the allure 9002
