- Wedding: Petroleum Club of Houston
My wedding is about 1 year away, but I am the type of person who likes to be organized and prepared so I plan to order my dress no later than mid-May 2014. I have tried on about 25 dresses and have fallen in love with the Martina Liana #411 in ivory. It is just the right detail with a very soft and romatic skirt and it fits my body perfectly. I don’t, however, love the price of $3000.
So as I continued to shop, I tried on Essence of Australia (the sister line to Martina Liana) D1604. It is ideally the identical dress to the #411 but the price is only $1400. I can see how the price is less as the lace is not as detailed as the #411 and it does not have the swarovski crystals, but in doing so, I realized that I really do want the crystals.
Moving on, I found Qunicy by Soterro and Midgley for $1700. I have yet to try it on, but it does have the intricate beading and swarovski crystals so that leads me to my question: Why is the Martina Liana #411 so much more expensive than the Soterro and Midgley?? Is the quality better or am I just paying for the designer name?? I believe my heart is set on the Martina, but as the price is over my budget, I want to make sure that it is worth the price.
Thanks in advance!!
