ALLURE 8766 -with ruffled skirt?!

Hi Ladies,


I am new to PW. I'm SERIOUSLY considering ordering my wedding dress the ALLURE 8766 from Dressilyme based on the feed-back I have seen from other dresses ordered from them.


However, I am a bit hesitant as I think I remember reading some posts that they are not so efficient on the Organza material and the mermaid styles. Both elements that really make this dress rock.


Please advise

BTW did anyone order a mermaid style dress or one with ruffles made from Organza satin? Would appreciate any pictures you can send my way.

My dress isn't a mermaid but it has some sort of ruffles. You can't really tell from the pictures, but they are really nice.

Wow Melo that dress is beautiful!!  I have no idea how they do with mermaid styles, I just received my dress and its was great but it was just a simple A Line.  I think searchin through all the posts here though I have run across a mermaid style (don't remember 100% though).

MellowJello: I think the ruffles are organza and I didn't order samples first. It is indeed soft and flowing. I thought it would look more "hard" (don't know the englisch word for it, but I meen not soft :)) because I also heared they don't do ruffles very well. But they came out very nice!


I didn't order samples btw, just went with good faith :)

Thanks, I'm thinking about ordering the fabric swatches first though to have a bit more peace of mind -taffeta and organza...however, they said that the ruffles is organza satin-so I'm guessing that is different from just the organza they have on their website. Think I'll call them to be absolutely certain... It's only $5.32 per swatch but is the shipping that's killing me lol which is like $25.78.

Maybe you can ask them, what the difference betweet the normal organza and the organza satin? 


And $30 for a little peace of mind is not that expensive ;)

Lol true. I emailed them and they said that they don't offer organza satin samples at this time...bummer..however that it is thicker than organza... So I'm thinking of braving it like you and take the plunge.

I just checked their site, the organza they used for my dress is really organza and no organza satin. Well, take the plunge worked for me, go for it! :)

I had to wait about 4 days for my payment to go to "paid", but that was over a holiday.  When it finally changed to paid I received my dress about 3 weeks later.  They were amazingly fast.  I got it 3 weeks before my wish date.   Let us know how yours turns out.
