    @Shekema07:

    while I do think the Karena Royale looks great on you, couldn’t hurt to try the one you adore, otherwise you may end up kicking yourself that you had the chance and didnt take it. who knows it might just prove to you that Karena is the ONE!

    Good Luck!

    I voted to keep it, mainly because I think it’s a beautiful dress!  How much hassle will the selling be?  Can your budget handle the loss you will take on the Maggie?  If you think it can, then try on the other dress.  If it will be a stretch, keep the gorgeous dress you have!

    It’s hard to say.  The dress you already have looks so beautiful on you, but if you keep thinking about the other dress, then you should probably try it.  Otherwise you’re going to keep thinking about what if.  You don’t want to end up wondering what if.

    There are three main differences between the dresses, all of which could be done to your dress through alterations. If it’s just one feature in particular that you prefer, it might be very easy to give your dress the same feel as the Enzoani.

    One difference is that the Enzoani is fuller in the skirt, which could easily be achieved by adding a crinoline to your dress. Another difference is the jewelled detail under the bust of the Enzoani, which could be done through alterations or simply by swapping your sash for a beaded one.

    The third (and possibly most noticeable) difference is that the lace doesn’t come all the way to the bottom. You could possibly get the lace cut away near the bottom and add a layer of tulle. The alterations might be expensive but it could still be a lot cheaper than buying a second dress. Plus it would be unique!

    I had bought and began to alter my Reem Acra when I fell in love with an Enzoani, but now when I look at the two, I still love the Reem, but the Enzoani became less and less appealing every time I looked at it.  Maybe just try it on for shits & giggles though.  And welcome to Chicago, baby -the greatest city on Earth!

    i think you should just try the dress because you might regret not giving it a chance. I mean who knows maybe you wont like the way it looks on you. so ya…just keep this for for now and try on the other one so you atleast know what it looks like on you

    @Shekema07: I am an Enzoani Cheyenne bride and all I can say is.. shes amazing!! BUT I think you look absolutely STUNNING in the KR! I was obsessed with alot of gowns online and none lived up to my expectations in real life, except for Cheyenne. I say try her on… If you love her that much more, it might be worth it to get her, but you may find her and realize she wasn’t what you expected. Here are pictures of me in the Cheyenne sample:
