Hi ladies.. I’m thinking of purchasing the Enzoani Francesca-A, but wanted to get some help before I drag my mom out to another store. Anyone know any deadringers for it? I got the price quoted at around $2700 (which isn’t really out of my budget) but if I could find a dress similar for cheaper I would. It needs to have just the right amount of beading and all-over lace. I need your help! I’m calling the A-Team in for this one. 🙂

The make beautiful dresses. Look at Maggie Sottero’s “Genevieve” its new from Spring. It is a beautiful, rich gown. Similar material and line you posted here. And it seems everyone is attaching some sort of sash or belt. The shoulder piece is detachable. To see and try this in person is different than on line.
Also, the Watters and Wtoo gowns have a similar look to the Enzoani gowns. I’d go to a store that carries these lines as well and look, and try on!

Have you looked at their lower priced line, Blue by Enzoani? The quality is AMAZING for the price, and they have several similar gowns. I did a quick scan, and spotted these styles that look similar: Davis, Dillon, Champagne, Cambridge, and Casablanca. I think their dresses average around 1500-1800.
Also, the brand Casablanca has a LOT of similar dresses with lace and beading. I would definitely check them out too because they are very affordable.

I checked out Blue by Enzoani online and some are similar.. but I’m not sure how similar they would look in person, that’s all. Thanks! I’ll have to do another look through them. 🙂
edit – I really think Champagne and Cambridge are the closest..they’re missing a little ruching and the drapeyness of the front pleats, but they really ARE pretty close.

@ohkkrista: Having seen the Blue by Enzoani ‘Casablanca’ in person as I considered trying it on I’d say it’s the closest to the Francesca as it has ruching and the lace at the bottom of the dress seems to look very similar too. I’d say the lace on the ‘Cambridge’ is further away to the Francesca than the Casablanca.
