I vote Milana, I’m not really a fan of the Gatsby. There’s just something kind of off about it, to me. The Milana is really pretty though. Do you have any pics of you in the dresses?

Another “old world” style dress. La Sposa’s Frutal. I tried it on when I was looking. It’s GORGEOUS.

If you’re not sure, then it’s because you haven’t found your dress.

I was about 24 hours away from putting down a deposit on Maggie Sottero’s Belinda (after trying on over 50 dresses, making mood-boards, trying on the dress 3 times over 2 months) but, beautiful as it is, part of me felt that it just wasn’t right, that I was “settling” for the best dress I could find in my budget that fit my ideas for my dress. 

As a final check, I went to another store to try on a new dress, and that was when I found my dress – and it wasn’t even the dress I’d gone to the shop to try on in the first place! After finding my dress, I realised that it was the beading on the lace of Belinda that didn’t work for me, and I love the unbeaded lace in my dress (Blue by Enzoani Cheyenne), and I’m completely happy with my dress. 

If I were you (and to avoid the possibility of evil dress-regret) I’d go and try on some other dresses. I can recommend Blue by Enzoani – and they’re the same kind of price range as Maggie – but don’t feel limited. You don’t need to commit to a dress until Christmas/New Year, so don’t rush yourself.

Have you tried either of the dresses on?  I would love to see pics of them on you…

I have tried both on, and they are both beautiful.  I actually bought the Milana, but I also really liked the Gatsby. 

I ended up going with the Milana beacause I’m not a tall girl (5’3″) and I felt that the dropped waist on the Gatsby made me look shorter…

I think both dresses are beautiful, but definitely get pics! I’m wearing the gatsby and she’s so gorgeous, but the milana is as well – and everyone looks completely different in dresses. I’d love to see them on!

Wow the Gatsby just takes my breath away! Would you like it better with a little organza sleeve instead of the straps? That might balance your height if you’re concerned – or an organza wrap or something like that. Both dresses are gorgeous, but I think the Gatsby would be great for either of the locations you are considering; the only difference might be the kind of veil or hairpiece you choose.

Or….keep looking. I’m getting married around the same time you are, and I can so relate to your anxiety about price point/designers and trunk shows. Good luck!

well don’t let it get to you. But this is an important decision so don’t take it lightly or just settle. When you find the one, no matter what you think, you WILL know whether its the one or not. Quit stressing because that will not help the situation. Take a deep breathe, figure out what exactly you like and don’t like….Go and try on more dresses.

I tried a few on, and they were always just “okay” or “pretty”…I tried on the GATSBY and i was like WOW…But because I hadn’t been shopping a lot…I went around trying on more, and every single one I compared to the GATSBY and honestly, to me, nothing compared! So I knew she was the one…I went back to the store, tried her on again, and instantly started with the tears!

You will know, I promise! Give it time. ThaT feeling will come.

well its always good to get things off your chest.

i looked at both of those dresses, and they are pretty dresses. I just don’t care for the top of the dresses, but if i had to pick one it would definitley be the second on (W7406HC)…they both are very elegant. I just don’t get the vintage vibe from those. Humm…

But your decision, is the ultimate one. GOoD LUCK! keep us posted!
