I picked Karena Royale, but I’m biased, my dress!  I did have it altered to a sweetheart neckline and it looked great.  I did the ivory over light gold and switched the ribbon and lace to ivory (vs. gold).  I’d send you a pic, but I don’t think/know how to attach pictures in PMs.  You can send me your email if you want a picture.

The Karena Royale is so elegant and gorgeous, I really, really love it, so that’s my pick!

I like the Melissa Brooch, the bottom and top all flows beautifully. What dress can you imagine walking down the aisle in and looking at pictures of yourself in forever?

I vote Melissa Brooch hands down!  The others are beautiful but the Melissa Brooch is absolutely gorgeous, and looks amazing on YOU!

Im just going to say it to get it out there but, have you noticed the number of Melissa Brooch and Jenna dresses out there?!?

I am a MAGGIE SOTTERO DIE HARD FAN, but she has SO MANY other beautiful dresses to pick from!

Melissa Brooch is way to SIMPLE in my opinion, I mean its beautiful but there are plenty out there like it! Maggie makes some awesome modern/clean but DRAMATIC dresses! Check out Sottero and Midgley too! Its the “Couture” line!

The Jenna dress, I’ve just seen it way too much and I am really getthing over those Fin/Flaps, looks like the the scrubbers in the car wash you drive through! WOW I SOUND LIKE MY FI!!

AGAIN! JUST MY OPINION!Dont mean to be rude or offend anyone  who already own any of these dresses!

You only get to get married once! Pick the dress of your dreams!!! BLESSINGS!

Karena Royale. It’s classic and beautiful. I’m also a lace fan, so I guess I’m biased.

I find Melissa Brooch makes people look a little long in the torso and a little short in the leg. Jovi doesn’t do anything for me, and I think it will date quickly, but you might not mind that.

I’m also biased towards the Karena Royale since it was mine too!  It would be an easy alteration to a sweetheart, but would you also remove the scalloped edge on the top or do a sweeheart with the scallops?  I had mine altered to a more fitted sillouette (more of a mermaid) and was very pleased.

I’m am like you, gadfly271, I love lace! So of course, I’m going with Karena Royale! I like Melissa Brooch but I feel like there is too many out there just like it or almost like it. Then again that might be said about the Karena Royale but I am biased. I don’t care for dresses like Jenna. I don’t like the overall look of it, I’m more classic personally. It does fit very well on the torso but I think the skirt is so far below you hips that it could make a tall person look short.

I have a Maggie as well! I just ordered mine last week. Good luck deciding!

I vote for the KR, but I am biased bc it was my dress 🙂  It is such a beautiful dress!  I had mine altered into a slight sweetheart-I wanted it to be a deeper sweetheart but I have a scar right where it dips down so I couldn’t go to far…My seamstress took the scalloped edge off, modified the neckline and sewed it back on and it turned out great!  Here’s what mine looked like modified-

I’d say go with the Jenna.  I purchased a Maggie Sottero – Lucianna 🙂
