I ordered my dress last week and can’t wait until it comes in!
Any Mori Lee 1653 brides out there that are willing to share pics of their big day? I’d like to get some inspiration of what kind of look to accompany this dress..

Hi Rosey! I don’t have my wedding pictures back yet, but I have my mini 4 min. wedding video back from our videographer. You can see what I went with for my accesories that day and how the dress looks in person. I originally was leaning towards the Adorae by Sottero and Migdley, but this dress was so different and unique and screamed elegance to me. I also wanted something that you didn’t see everyday! I actually had the dress changed from corset back to zipper back which was a lot of work, but the seamstress did amazing work.
I went with an elbow veil because I am short with edge rhinestones and my earrings kind of matched a broach I decided to put in my hair. My earrings I went with were chandeliers because a necklace would’ve been a bit much. I also was never a fan of flowers in the hair and wanted to go with something more elegant that looked good with the dress and my earrings. Really I don’t think a flower would have gone with the beading at all.
I hope this helps! IfI get my photos in,I’ll repost them here on the board for you. And I wouldn’t worry. The dress was a hit at the wedding. Everyone loved it and kept saying how they had never seen a dress like that before. They also thought it was $$$$$ and designed by say a Reem Acra or someone famous when in reality it wasn’t really too too expensive, but it did have the look of Hollywood glam 🙂
