So after trying on only 4 dresses, I fell in love with the Lazaro 3207. I just love the dress but at my mother’s urging I tried on a few more (actually 3 more) at a different store just to be sure the Lazaro was the one. So during that second forced try-on, they had a Martina Liana that I thought was beautiful but very different from the Lazaro that I love. So I came home to ponder and make a decision and it looked like it would be the Lazaro. Well a few days later I jump online because curiosity got the best of me about Martina Liana and I looked up her collection and FELL IN LOVE with one of her Fall 2014 dresses. But no one has the sample yet and I really would like to try it on. Not sure if I should just go with the Lazaro or wait to try on the Martina Liana which may or may not come into the boutique in October or November…Help!!

@jeneric_wedding: They’re both absolutely gorgeous, but I LOVE the Lazaro!

Love the Martina Liana!! The seams on the front of the Lazaro would bother me. The fabric around them looks all wrinkly.
Bias alert – 😉 – I’m a Martina Liana bride – I tried on several dresses and just loved the fit and feel of them. The fabric, cut, and workmanship were exceptional.

+1 I’m also a Martina bride and the quality of their dresses are amazing
OP, try to see if any trunk shows are coming to your area and you can try on the new line before it’s offered in salons

I love the cut of the ML much more. Plus, I’ve tried on her gowns and the fabric is amazing and very high quality. I didn’t end up buying a ML, but I’d wait around. The Lazaro isn’t going anywhere, and you have plenty of time.

You’re absolutely right! The Lazaro isn’t going anywhere…I’m going to wait. Thanks!

I only tried on one ML but it was enough to make me doubt my Lazaro and look up her new 2014 collection.

@jeneric_wedding: Both really pretty gowns, but I like the ML dress better and would totally wait. If your wedding is next August – you have a bit of time. I am a ML bride, but tried on and love Lazaro as well. Just something about the pic above – when you move the dress wrinkles and doesn’t look as flattering in the skirt – but the top of the Lazaro is beautiful. ML beadwork though – is AMAZING, and from what I can tell there is a bit of beading on the top of this dress. I’m sure it will be stunning! Let us know what you end up with!

So after attending the ML trunk show in Houston, I am officially a Martina Liana bride!!! Her dresses are so beautiful and the cut and fit was perfect. I ended up trying on about 7 of her dresses but ultimately nothing compared to that 511. The beadwork was extraordinary, intricate and exquisite! I love it so much. I also bought one of the ML slender belts that just made the beading pop beautifully and gave the dress something more. Thank you so much for your help ladies! Waiting was the right decision. Once I saw the dress in person, that poor Lazaro never stood a chance. Pics to follow!
