I have been looking for an inexpensive dress to wear out to the Casino’s after our wedding – did not want to risk my dress that I love and am wearing for the wedding and reception but my FI wants me to look like a bride that night too. So I was playing around on ebay just looking and found this mori lee and decided to play with the make an offer. I have never used make an offer before so I made a ridiculously low offer and next thing I know I own another dress. I paid almost nothing for it, my simple veil costs more than this.
So it is kinda cute but I am worried it is really out of date. What do you think?? I did not mean to win this . . .

I think it’s cute. A bit vintage but that can still be cool!

Its Cute!! Not totally outdated. it would be a sweet dress if you shortened it too a tea length dress. Its got a retro 50’s vibe too it. How awesome to get a dress for such a great price.

if you got it for so cheap, then what are you worried about? i like it in it’s classic/vintage way 🙂 but since you’re going to wear this out to the casinos i would have it shortened to knee length which will be fun to wear out but still bridal and pretty. with the full skirt and high neckline and that pretty back detail it will look so nice at that length! get some hot heels to go with it and you’ll be gorgeous! if you get it shortened have them move the current satin hem band up to the new shortened hem so you keep that detail.

I agree, I bet it will be really pretty shortened. Try adding a colored sash around the waist, too, that will make it look more modern :).

I suggest shorteining it….I love the back….its borderline vintage/dated. Make a few changes and I think you’ll have a cool, fun, more vintage-y feel dress for the casino.

I am with the others who think you should shorten it to knee length and wear it with a ribbon sash!

Ditto to the shorten it suggestions. It has a cute retro vibe to it that you could really play up in the casinos, and knee length is a great excuse to show off some fabulous shoes! 🙂

Oooh I love, love that dress!! Very vintage and classy!! Maybe some minor alterations and it would be perfect. I think the only thing I would change would be to remove the train, but keep the length.

I agree with a pp who said to shorten it to tea length…I think it would look much more like a 1950s party dress that way! You could even accesorize it with a cute birdcage veil and some great, sassy heels!

It’s a good buy if you paid almost nothing, after all it is a wedding dress 🙂
I would change the neckline to a softer maybe sweetheart or just straight strapless and het rid of the sleeves (or change the sleeves into lace ones to match the skirt)
