    I wore the Enzoani Dakota. If you don’t like the beading on the Cambridge, maybe have a look at the one I wore, it’s very similar!

    I don’t like the skirt or the belt of the 3rd one.

    The first one is pretty, but I would be anal about the way the tiers fall, I think it would bug me too much. It’s beautiful though.

    I think my favorite is the 2nd one! Would you do a belt as well, like the other two, or leave it as is? I actually really love how the lace pattern expands, it makes it feel high end to me–it’s not just a slab of lace, it’s cut specifically to fall exactly as it does. I’m not a fan of beading in lace either, but it’s not really that noticeable–maybe you could have it removed from the top if you don’t like it. With more money in your budget you could afford more alterations.

    The Rivini could never, ever look boring, the Enzoani is definitely sophisticated enough, and I agree with you that the last one doesn’t seem as bridal as the others due to the lack of poof. Honestly, I think your heart is with the Rivini. It sounds like you feel the best in it and it is a gorgeous, unique dress! Anytime price is the first “pro” listed, it’s a nice factor but the fact that it is first on the list makes me wonder if a bride is really excited about the dress, though. It would be different if you said, “Wow, I really love how I feel in this dress, the fit is great, oh and the price is just great, too!” You see? So, honor your heart, be mindful of your wallet and enjoy your beautiful choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @kala_way: I agree, I’m personally not a fan of the tiered lace…it doesn’t seem to hit certain women in the right way.

    #2 is gorgeous! If you don’t like this lace pattern there are a lot of similar dresses. Keep looking!

    I personally like the 2nd best, but without pictures of them on you, we’re really just telling you our personal opinions on dresses. From your pros/cons it seems like you love #1 best. If the price is in your budget go for it! And there’s no harm in looking around more. You may find a dress you like even more! And if not you still have these lovely choices ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the Rivini, just because Ive never seen a lace dress like that before and I find the tiers absolutely beautiful!! I agree, that you seem to like this one the most too!

    I was looking for exactly the same shape & all-over lace too – awesome choice! I tried the Enzoani Cambrige, but I can’t do sparkle at all: it washes me out and makes my hair look dull.

    I bought the Allure 8825, which has gorgeous alencon lace without any beading, dramatic sweetheart neckline (easily removed the straps), and the silhouette I wanted, and made me feel very frugal.

    Just want to say- I looked at the pictures first and loved the second one without knowing the prices.  I definitely don’t think it looks less expensive than the other two.

    I was really torn between the last two.  They are both beautiful dresses!!  There is a huge price difference though.  Did you have a better feeling about any of them? 

    I personally dont like the first one more than the others enough to justify the huge price difference.  And since I am torn between the last 2 I would probably go with the cheaper of them if you love them both.  There are so many places you can spend the budget =)  if you can save some here and be happy I say go for it!

    They are all beautiful dresses though so I dont think you can go wrong.

    I also actually love the look and shape of the 2nd one , even before I read the prices. I think it is extremely sophisticated and elegant, and I don’t think the sparkles take away from it at all, they look really subtle.
