Just wondering if anyone knows what the difference is between the enzoani and enzoani blue lines? I’ve been to try on more dresses today and many where enzoani or enzoani blue and I have to say I couldn’t really tell any difference in quality? I thought maybe they put more beading etc on enzoanis to make the price more but when I looked there are dresses with lots of beadwork etc or none in both lines.
Would be interested if anyone knows?

@wedding_2011: I’ve always loved Benjamin Roberts and Enzoani which comes under the Benjamin Roberts name. I knew I wanted a dress from this designer house and my dress is a Benjamin Roberts. When I rang Benjamin Roberts once to enquire about the availability of a Blue Enzoani dress I was told the Blue Enzoani range is aimed towards the American market and the quality of fabrics is better compared to Benjamin Roberts but I don’t know about between Blue and Enzoani. Sorry as that doesn’t really answer your question. 😉

Thanks, thats interesting to know. From what I remember benjamin roberts had a lace up internal corset and enzoani/ blues had hook up internal corsets and the fabrics prob where a little different. The benjamin roberts are still gorgeous though. I tried on the 2058A today.
Anyone know the difference between enzoanis and blues? really interested to know now.

Enzoani Blue is the less expensive line. A lot of designers do this, offer a more affordable line along with their main line (Monique Lhuillier Bliss, Romona Keveza Legends, Two By Aire Barcelona etc). They may use less luxurious fabrics, less beading, less elaborate construction etc on the second line. I tried two dresses by Rosa Clara once that looked exactly the same but were offered by two different names under the same umbrella. One was $2200, one was $5300. The expensive one somehow fit better. The difference is usually very subtle though.

Thanks, i know that the blus is the less expensive but from what i’ve seen from other designers as you say a difference can be seen in the fabrics and work needed to produce it but with these I can’t see what the difference is.

I got married in a Blue by Enzoani dress, and saw a good few Enzoanis in the flesh (although never actually tried one on) and I’m stumped as to how they make the Blues so much cheaper. I think it must be extremely clever things, like subtly different laces or slightly less fabric – less folds, fewer underskirts, things you wouldn’t necessarily notice.
I could see it more in the new collection – Denmark in the Blue collection is clearly a slightly less intricate version of Enzoani Farlow. It gives the same overall effect, but if you put them side by side you could tell which was cheaper. In the 2010 I struggled to tell.
I can vouch for the quality of the construction and detail in the Blue by Enzoani dresses, though, so if Enzoani is out of your budget, then go for Blue without a second thought. I think Blue by Enzoani, and Benjamin Roberts, are an absolute gem in their price range – they are punching well above their weight in quality and design, IMO.

Great information for me. I bought an Enzoani gown at a sample sale. I was so confused when I looked for my dress online to see if others have worn the same dress, but now I see why I can’t find one photo. It ORIGINALLY costs $3,100. I guess that’s not in the price range of your average American bride. I got it for much cheaper than that!

I spent $1700 on my Blue by Enzonai, and I absolutely loved it. It might have had cheaper materials, but I couldn’t tell and I was only wearing it for one day, so it didn’t matter to me in the end.

It’s beautiful! 🙂
I feel even better knowing I bought an Enzoani at a Enzoani Blue price.
