The Dabra dress is beautiful-it is more of a drop waist which looks beautiful. The last dress is more ball gown. Be sure that that is the style which suits you before you buy it. I really don’t see much difference between two and three for all the hassle to try to sell it

@shutterbug68:  I am 5’2” as well and I bought a similar dress (lace up top, tulle on bottom, drop waist) in “super short” as well – I was worried it would look totally different when it came in but it’s great!  PM me if you’d like pictures.

The third dress looks almost identical to the one you currently have.  I would not change it for the 3rd.  However, the Enzoani Dabra is gorgeous.  If you were going to switch dresses, go for that one.

@shutterbug68:  Oh wow! You are the first person I have found that has ordered the same dress as me! I’m only 5’1″ and loved the fact that they could order this in my size. It’s a Stella York 5756 if you wanted to google it. It’s a stunning dress but don’t worry about having doubts. I think it’s quite natural. I bought mine after visiting the second shop and then spent the whole time worrying that I was a bit hasty and worried I should have looked around. It’s really great to see it on someone else though. The shop I went to only had it in a size that six times bigger than my actual size so I took a complete gamble. I’ve stopped worrying about it now as I know it’s beautiful and just can’t wait for it to come back in my size so I can try it on again! I loved the beading, so pretty. Mine’s due in hopefully in next 6 weeks. I’ll post some pics when I go for fitting.

@shutterbug68:  I love your dress!  I wouldn’t trade it for either #1 or #3, personally.

I tried on an Enzoani and thought it was beautiful, but it was a lot of dress for ME and I’m 5’7″.  Those trains are no joke, you know?  I think you made the right decision, and you will wear your dress beautifully as opposed to a beautiful dress wearing YOU.

@shutterbug68:  Just add a petticoat under your dress.  Not the ones with a hoop because your dress doesn’t need that kind of lift.

@shutterbug68:  It must be pretty exclusive as I have really struggled to find it on real brides! I think it’s quite a new design! I was so happy when I saw your pics, made me remember how pretty it looks. The model shots always make the dresses look different. The shop I bought mine in wouldn’t let me take a pic until after I put the money down either!! But as it was far too big and too long on me so I deleted them through fear of having dress regret. I know it will look completely different when it’s in my size. I was the same in the shop, I was walking around with a big smile on my face. I didn’t want to take it off either! Just remember how you felt at that moment and remember you wouldn’t have bought if you didn’t feel that way about it at the time!! I’m wearing a small hoop skirt with a bit more tulle underneath just to make it little fuller in the skirt and to keep it off my legs! I’m just like you I normally share any doubt with my FI and find it really hard not to have his opinion on such a big decision!! I’m sure both our FI’s will love our dress choice 🙂 I really can’t wait to go back and try it on again! I hope I’ve helped put your mind at rest a bit…

The first gown is to absolute die for!!! You look perfect! They’re all pretty gowns though, you could pull any of them off! I vote number one though!
