    I voted for #2! Although all are gorgeous. While some of the other dresses have things that need to be changed, or even things you can’t change, #2 seems to be everything you’re looking for! The only thing you’re hesitant about is that the sparkles don’t always show up in photos, which I think is a silly reason to not pick the dress. It’s gorgeous, unique, and comfortable!

    I personally love the first one on you! Plus it has some absolutely amazing detailing. I feel like the others don’t have quite as much sparkle and wow factor.

    #2 is absolutely stunning!  

    I have to say, I actually find the detailing on the first dress a bit much.  It’s actually distracting to me.  It takes away from you, which isn’t what you want on your day, but that’s just my opinion.

    I say 2. Here are my reasons:
    Dress 1: The beading is gorgeous and glamorous, and that is the main thing that makes this dress unique. However the shape/straplessness is very ‘in’ right now so that is quite common. This would be my runner-up dress.
    Dress 2: I feel this is definitely the most unique, I like that it has straps because it seems that like 80% of gowns are strapless, I actually love the big lace patterns and the pearls are so lovely and romantic. I find that small lace patterns are amazing close-up but get lost further away, and this dress shows up better in photos. I also love gauzy skirts and… well, the more I look at this the more I love it! The fact that it is the most comfy clinches it for me.
    Dress 3: I don’t tend to like dresses where there is a harsh transition from the fitted part of the dress to the skirt, to me it always looks like two dresses somehow got spliced together! Also you said it’s harder to walk in.
    Dress 4: Pretty, but fairly common right now, no need to go over budget for this one.
    Dress 5: Same as above.

    lovelyrain:  my second favorite is the Mori Lee 2801. My least favorite is the enzoani Jenny. Just doesn’t have the drama and bling that looks awesome on you!

    Number 2 is pretty and you look lovely in it but all the others are so similar to each other they blurred into one for me.

    If I were you I would keep looking if you want something unique and wow – don’t feel any of these fall into these categories!

    minimgonk:  I second that.  #2 is a gorgeous.  I will stand by that, but none of these are unique in the least.#2 breaks the mold the most from this grouping of dresses, but it’s hard to get “unique” with strapless mermaid gowns nowadays.  BUT get what you love.  I happen to love your second gown and I find it to be unique as far as the detailing goes.

    I’ve been exactly where you are now and all I can say is check out Aire Barcelona, Rosa Clara and Alma Novia (all the same complany so have a lot of crossover in terms of beading and things). They were the most unique dresses I could find. 

    Aire Barcelona:

    Alan (the love of my life in dress form lol! It wasn’t anywhere in my country though)

    Macba

    Mael

    Macao (very similar to mine, not much sparkle – pics of me in mine on a thread I started if you’re interested)

    Victoria (I tried this one on and it made my body look awesome!)

    ALSO, I tend to think the Casablanca brand has some gems hidden in it (so I was a bit biased in the poll lol) but I really like this one:

    2238

    Anyway, not saying any of these are ones you should get just trying to cover the variations within brands as much as possible. Happy hunting πŸ™‚

    When I saw the first one I thought ” well that can’t be topped”. So beautiful!!!  Such impressive design and beading!!!

    Then I saw the second dress and had to pick my jaw up off the ground. What a DIVINE creation!!!! Don’t you wear it perfectly.

    I felt the others all paled into insignificance after the first two and yet they are lovely dresses too. They just lack the wow factor that one and two have in spades.
