    I purchased the Martina Liana 423! I’m glad to see more bees are trying it on! It is gorgeous in person, but I did have the same concerns about photography. HOWEVER. The lighting in my venue will not be as harsh as the lighting in the model pics and I think the photographer will know how to make the detail and sparkle stand out!

    I think the Martina Liana is gorgeous!  I think the detail is much prettier than the Maggie.  If you can afford it, I say go for it.  It is beautiful.

    I personally like the Maggie Sottero better because it breaks up all the lace. If I were choosing between the 2, that’s what I would go with!

    And obviously, I AM biased, but I don’t love the way the lace fades out on the Maggie and I think you can kind of see why the ML is more expensive. The detail of the lace and it all being one continuous piece is something that stands out more to me.

    I am also a Martina bride (style 377) so I’m pretty biased haha. And if I remember correctly the MS Emma has visible seams running down the front, which I personally hate. I wouldn’t worry about the sparkle not showing in pictures. There are tons of bees who have the Augusta Jones Jessie and the Maggie Lorie which both have the sparkle like the Martina and I’ve never seen anyone complain that the dress didn’t look good in the pro photos.

    To me, it sounds like you favor the Martina…so I say go for it!

    Completely unbiased from a married bee – I prefer the Emma. Both are gorgeous but I love the overlay and the detailing of the Emma.

    I think the Emma gown is so much more interesting and eyecatching.  I love it in the gold color.  

    I’m sure the Martina gown is beautiful… but it looks like the same type gown I see on most every bride these days.
