In Search of the Perf Gown? The Right Fabric Makes All the Difference

Dawn Strong

Looking beautiful on your Big Day begins and ends with the right gown, and if you dream of sailing down the aisle like a total princess, trust us on this one - it's the fabric that can truly make all of the difference. Whether its ultra-soft Mikado, stunning tulle or romantic lace, the genius designers at Allure Bridals have you covered with gowns that will ensure you're the center of attention. Oh, and the unique accessories? We're jumping on the translucent capes bandwagon, like yesterday. Every bride wants that wow-factor, so choosing a gown that is crafted with fabrics that make the grade is really important. The Spring 2018 Allure Bridals Collection happens to have stunning, high-quality fabrics down to an absolute science, so you can breathe easy with a dress that feels soft against your skin, flows with the music, doesn't make you sweat (!) and isn't constricting during that after party at your fave restaurant. (All good things, you guys.) Even more important, Allure Bridals is known for their insane craftsmanship (i.e., your gown will last AND look beautiful) and they merge their aforementioned high-quality fabrics with luxe detailing, so you don't have to give up your dreams of sparkle or jeweled sequins. Some of our faves? Style 9508 with its beautiful English Net and unique geometric pattern, the vintage-inspired Style 9525 with its flowy chiffon skirt and Style 9506, because we can never, ever get enough of illusion sleeves on a lace sheath. Allure Bridals' classic approach to bridal gowns has always been one of our faves, and we love how you can always count on them to deliver the high-crafted goodness. Their Spring 2018 Collection is everything you'd expect with incredibly feminine silhouettes and demure designs that you'll love. We adore the clean lines of Style 9514 (hey there, silky Mikado) and the beach-ready Style 3105 is a chiffon masterpiece. Need proof? Check out this beautiful shoot from the talents of  Heather Waraksa, Gabrielle Hurwitz and Pear Tree Flowers to become next level obsessed, and then head to Allure Bridals' website to find a retailer near you, because you're going to want to own an Allure Bridals' dress.
