    I like the Mori Lee. I am not a fan of “defined” ruffles — I like the random, more fluid ruffles. (This could also be because of my extreme divorsion to floral patterns in clothes…) I also like the subtle sparkle along the line where the ruffles start. Like, to me, the Mori Lee ruffles flow with the dress, whereas the Maggie ruffle just starts up out of nowhere. I have no idea if that made any sense. Tongue Out

    I voted for the Mori Lee, but I’m biased because it’s my dress 🙂 I do like the ruffles on the Mori Lee better than on the Primrose, though, and the lace detail where the skirt starts. (Also, there are subtle sparkles from the sequins on the bodice, which is nice, and I love the ruching.)

    Wow! That Mori lee looks AMAZING on you! The color is stunning and its different from a lot of ruffle-ish skirts I’ve seen. The Maggie one is safe and makes me go, meh. Seriously, get that Mori Lee!

    I like the Maggie wayyyyy more. The Mori Lee just looks messy to me. I think bringing the skirt up is also a lot more flattering on your frame.

    I like the Mori. It just looks softer to me. You look great in both though!

    I voted Maggie!!! I’m bias because I am a primrose Bride!!! I personally liked the way the rosettes laid on Maggie vs mori. I tried on both of these dresses. I first tried on MaggiI (loved it) then tried on mori, and the ruffles/drama on the bottom did not compare …… I can’t wait to wear it!!!

    I like Maggie better… As another poster said, the Mori Lee looks messy.  And the bodice on the Mori Lee makes me think of a Mummy.

    I typically hate florettes like that on the Maggie, but I don’t mind the ones there.. It looks a lot better with the skirt raised up. But I would ask how much an alteration like that would cost..? I know Maggie has a “petite” sizing but not sure how that works.

    I also think the layering on the bodice of Maggie looks more polished and “put together”

    I think the Mori Lee hugs in the right places looks romantic and elegant.  Both are nice but the Mori Lee is in my opinion a knock out.

    @kayy:  I love the Mori Lee on you- it is so pretty!  The Primrose is a bit much in my opinion.  It’s a lot of dress, looks heavy, and I don’t care for the gigantic rosebud in the front.  It is your wedding though and you should get whatever gown makes you feel the most beautiful.

    @kayy:  Either way, I think you look amazing in both dresses! But I do like the primrose with the raised skirt a lot more. 🙂

    I prefer organized patterns as in the Maggie skirt. Although I am usually a fan of Mori Lee, I think the Mori Lee skirt looks like too much is going on with it and its all over the place. Plus I do not really like the color of the dress. I think the last pic where its been raised 2 inches looks better on your frame/height. Good luck on your decision…I would be so confused.
