    Hi all,

    I cannot decide between the Phillipa (ivory over gold) and the Karena Royale (all white). I purchased both (whichever one I don't use, will be sold). I want to know your thoughts.

    I will post pics as soon as I can -- but for now ....I am a medium dark-skin black female. I am getting married in Riviera Maya in May. (It will be hot)/

    So, which dress?

      On the MS website, they are both beautiful and similar -- I can see why you're having trouble deciding. Would love to see pics of you in them!

        I love the Karena Royale in ivory over gold i have been looking for one. But I just went and looked at the Phillipa, I didn't realize you could get it in ivory over gold as well. It is really pretty too. I still love the KR mostly because of the sash. There are so similar I think it will really depend on if you want the sash or not. Try to take some pictures and it will be more helpful.

            My vote is the KR...I think the sash adds so much elegance to the dress! Love it! And with your skin tone you will be stunning I'm sure!

              i really like them both.

              something about phillipa is drawing me in, but it could be the hairpiece in the photo on the website.

                I really love the Phillipa! It is so beautiful. I would probably make it into a sweetheart neckline, but that's just me. I am also from Omaha and getting married in the Riviera Maya in May! I've seen quite a few Omaha brides on here. I think we are all trying to think warm thoughts and get out of this snow!

                In my personal opinion, I love the Karena Royale. Would you wear a sash with it?

                I also love the detail on the neckline

                And the Phillipa:

                It's very beautiful, but I think the other one just has that extra POP to it.

                    These are both gorgeous dresses and either way you couldn't go wrong.
                    However, I don't want to make a final judgment without seeing you in the dress!
