While I haven’t seen either on you and they are BOTH beautiful… the Adorae sticks out more to me 🙂 I bought a Maggie dress too! I love it.

PS – My dress came in Cathedral length and when it does they usually call it “Royale”… The dress I bought by her was Vogue. The catherdral length was called “Vogue Royale” Hope this helps!

The are both very similar. Mine is Adorae, It hugs the curves a little more and the fabric is gorgeous!!! it too has a decent train on it.  I was in love the moment I put it on….here’s a pic! You could probably get away with wearing one to the ceremony and one to the reception if you really wanted to!

(I’m standing on a platform in the pic of the back, so the train looks shorter than what it really is)

Go take pictures of yourself in both dresses and see what you think. If you are really stuck, wear em both. I did try on Adorae…I don’t think the train is super long but I don’t want a train at all and it had enough that they were going to order it with no train for me if I went with it.

@jeye7161:  Aww thanks! I love her 🙂 You’re right though, it doesn’t flare out like that at the bottom – i have a mermaid slip on underneath.  I like it WAYYYY better with the slip than without! I feel it gives it more of the poofy, bridal look.

 I know that some dresses you have the option to extend the train….i am a train person too (love it when they are really long) but this one is so perfect that I didn’t think to ask if they could extend it….they would probably just hem up the front and fade it into the back, so i dont know that they would be touching the train at all.

@jeye7167: Laughing at some shops you have to ask for them, which I think is silly.  I actually bought my mermaid crinoline at a different store than my dress, because the shop didn’t carry the mermaid style. (the top of it, from the waist to the knees, is all spandex, so it holds everything in haha, and the bottom is all the poofy-ness)

Son of a, everytime I see the Adorae I get dress envy which I don’t get a ton, grr. 

My question is, is this dress able to be ordered in a non-corset back, more than likely buttons instead?  It doesn’t give you the option on the site like other Maggie dresses do.  Point being is if I couldn’t do that, than I wouldn’t want it which would be a GOOD thing:)

I’m stuck between the SAME two dresses, how ironic. I have pictures of myself in Adorae, but not Brianna… hope these are helpful! 🙂

 

Oh & also, I’m adding my own touches to Adorae if I do end up buying it. I’m wearing a mermaid type petticoat to make it poof out more, then I’m bustle-ing one side of it, for some reason, this made this dress pop out to me. I REALLY like Brianna, but I think I’m stuck on this one…

@jeye7161:  I was actually torn between these two dresses too!   I ended up going with the Brianna though.  I loved the material and glamour of Adorae, but I felt that the rouching going all the way down and practically wrapping around my ankles was way too much for my petite frame…which may be a problem for you too since you are 5’1″.  I also felt that the Brianna really pulled in my waist and gave me much more of an hourglass shape.  I went back and forth for a really long time b/w the two so I can understand how torn you must be.  Here are a few pics to hopefully help you out!
