@ARA17:  Um…I think you had better decide NOW if your wedding really is in April…not sure you will have either by then.

Have you considered getting your gown made by a local designer instead? It sounds like short of finding a pre-owned or sample gown, custom-made could be a good alternative for you.

@ARA17:  Why not go for custom or get the Enzoa and get some of it changed up to how you want?

@gelaine22:  It isn’t very helpful of OP to write a post asking our opinion on dresses without any pictures either. The response I wrote at the time was the most helpful one I could give. And the truth is if she wants either dress by April she’s probably screwed now anyway. 

ETA: Just saw OP’s update…so her wedding is in August but still she better choose soon. Also, OP…pictures of all dresses you are asking opinions about would help us.

Have you tried that store vows from the TLC show? I don’t know if you live near there (I think it’s in Boston) but they carry a lot of designer samples at discount prices. If not, is there a store like that near you?

You don’t want to be unhappy with your dress so don’t settle on something that you don’t love. I do believe it’s possible to find what you are looking for with your very big budget…maybe you have to keep looking or go to a store with designers you haven’t looked at yet?

Good luck!

I would encourage you not to “settle”–you have a decent budget to work with and I’m hoping you can find something you love. Sample stores are good . . . another option may be looking at once-worn dresses that brides are selling online. That would open up some couture options that you couldn’t otherwise afford. Good luck!

Have you tried either of these dresses on?  It can make a big difference once you actually put the dress on.  They may be able to help you find other dresses with a similar silhouette.  I compromised to get my dream dress at the right price.  It will be special, because you wear it for your wedding.
