So I originally tried on a dress with my FMIL and FSIL (which another bee identified as Enzoani Casablanca) when I was visiting in the fall:
I really like the silhouette, but I’m not so crazy about the appliques. I had been trying on A-line before then, but when I got home, this one completely suprised me. I’ve always had weird issues with clothing. Like, I have a hard time sitting in front of a mirror and picking out all of the things I like about myself, and I am usually really conservative about how I dress, so picking out a wedding dress is a little overwhelming.
Okay, so today I went shopping with my mom, and I found a dress that looks a lot like the one above, but without all of the distracting lace bits. I couldn’t take pictures in the store, but it was Mori Lee 5108 (image borrowed from another bee):
My mother hated it because of the fabric (it was tulle), but I thought it was beautiful. I like how simple it is, and the added belt was perfect. Very clean, just a little bit of bling. But my mother is such a strong presence, and because I’m funny with clothing, I’m really not sure. I’m getting overwhelmed. I’m not sure what I feel about the fabric now – all of that tulle. Adorable or no? Or does anyone know any similar dresses I could try?
And, for good measure, a photoshoped imaged of me in the Mori Lee…
It sounds like you love the tulle dress so I say go for it! Based on your shape in the first pic and the dress in the shopped pic, I think it looks beautiful on you. Go with your gut
i am partial to the enzoani because, well, its the exact dress i picked. (which means i probably shouldnt read this thread anymore, as most bees will pick it apart and say how they dont like it. which may make me cry. please be nice, ladies!) it doesnt look good on everybody, BUT it looks super amazing on u. like, seriously, it does. the mori lee looks amazing as well. it is just up to u to decide if u like the organza/ruching and lace, or the tulle. i tried on one similar to the mori lee, and i shied away from it because of the sheer number of brides going with that look. just wait and see how many brides prefer it. every designer has a style like that now. so personally, i liked the enzoani because of its uniqueness and the shape it gave me.
if u dont love the enzoani, its not the one.
I love the Mori! I agree with you that it just looks cleaner (less distracting) than the lacey one, but the lace one has a beautiful bottom. However a lot really depends on your venue so take that into consideration
@_Adelaide_: I am in love with tulle but I am biased because my dress is tulle. I think the mori lee dress just adds that wow factor. The lace dress is pretty but just too plain and simple.
um, LOVE THE SECOND DRESS!!!!! U look amazing even thou itphotoshopped love it
The Enzoani is similar to the Venus Tyanna I picked:
I think it’s the most gorgeous dress (originally bought the Mikaella 1406, then had dress regret and bought this one), but it seems most people prefer the tulle. I’m not big on tulle myself as I find lace is such a classy and timeless look, but you have to feel amazing in whatever dress you pick! If the tulle gives you goosebumps, then that’s the dress for you. You have a great figure and look so pretty in both.
Thanks for the feedback, ladies! I think I’ll have to go try it again with fly bridesmaids instead of my mom.
@little_d I think the dress I tried migh be the Venus dress, not Enzoani… The lace at the bottom’s the same as the photo you posted…
I live the mori lee personally. It’s ethereal,soft and romantic
I say mori lee (the picture you used to photo shop from is of me) and I lovvved that dress. I think it will look amazing on you. Go with your gut!!
That bee looks incredible in the Mori Lee! She sold it for me. Gorgeous. The Enzoani is just okay…not so memorable and I am not a fan of the skirt. The tulle is precious and you must have looked adorable.
@_Adelaide_: Don’t think you’d go wrong with either. I’m partial to Enzoani too like @BeeG35: said and it sounds like you’re not crazily in love with it so go for the one you love
I love them both, so I say go with the one you love!
