I like the beading on the middle one, the best. I’m not that big into lace, plus I love that color. But that’s just my personal taste.

Don’t buy the dress just because its a good deal, don’t feel obligated and especially bc you are feeling rushed! You should buy the dress because you actually love the dress and you without a doubt can picture yourself walking down the aisle in this dress. Never rush into something bc  you will end up regretting it if you continue looking at dresses after you have purchsed one already. I feel like a lot of brides that have dress regret, get it bc they continue looking at dresses when they bought one already. When you buy a dress, stop looking! Lol

I think its beautiful, especially on you. Do I think you should get it? Yes but only if you are confident in your decision

The Leiben is fabulous on you! And I love the second sash option…the gold floral sash is all I notice in the first picture. If it’s a good deal and you truly love the dress go for it! With that being said, if you have any doubts I would wait.

If you do buy this dress, definitely do NOT go try on the Aurora after. It’s just asking for trouble.

I stopped trying on dresses the second I picked mine.

In terms of pricing, can you try to get the Maggie Sottero on trunk show pricing? I found that Maggie Sottero dresses were trunk-showing at a few stores in my area, and tried it on at one store, thought about it for a week, then went back to the other store and bought it. It’s a great way to save without having to make a decision that day!

The dress looks amazing on you and the others are so similar IMO…I’d go for it.

futuremrsJR:  I LOVE the Leiben as I happen to be a Leiben bride myself! It looks great on you and it looks like that sample was made for you! That being said, buy it because you love it and feel good in it, not because of the discount. You don’t want to have any regrets. I felt nervous at first too, making such a big purchase. But then I realized how much I loved it and knew it would all work out in the end. Maybe you should sleep on it.  🙂

If you wanted more of a comparison to the other dresses: When considering the Maggie Sottero one, I think it really depends on if you prefer beading. I am not a beading kind of gal and I think the ruffles in that skirt look really odd. So I would axe that and narrow it down to the Leiben and the San Patrick.

I think the Leiben and the San Patrick dress pictured are quite similar so I would go with the Leiben since you know the price and it will be ready for your wedding. Both are very similar so it is really up to your preference and what works for you.

Good luck and keep us updated!

Leiben looks great on you ! I would buy this dress. Alterations can be very pricey, the fact you can get them done for free and remain within your budget, rocking this gorgeous dress, is a big YES.

I do love the one you have tried on though, especially with the 2nd sash.  But you need to do what works for you!

If you love it, buy it! It’s beautiful & looks great on you. Don’t just buy it because it’s a great deal, though. 

And if you do buy it, stop looking at dresses. 🙂 (just a friendly tip)

To be honest I don’t really like how it sits on your body… It makes your shoulders look broader than thay are.  That silhouette is great, but I think you can do better 🙂
