- Wedding: June 2013
Let me start off by saying that I absolutely LOVE my dress, but just a little annoyed at the situation.
I had fallen in love with Mori Lee 1856 the first time I saw her on Pinterest. When it was time for dress shopping, I found a few salons that carried her and a few other dresses that I had liked. I planned a full day of dress appointments.
At the first salon, I told my consultant what I was interested in and she pulled those dresses along with a few others that she thought I would like. One of which she told me was an “exclusive” dress that had just come in–she said that it had never gone into production, and only a total of 4 of this dress existed, so if it didn’t fit, they could alter it, but couldn’t order one. I tried the dress on and it fit like a dream. I am quiet busty and was afraid of how much I may have to get a dress altered so it fit everywhere, but this dress required no alterations and was just perfect.
Even though I loved the dress, I was a little skeptical of the story, so I contacted customer service at Mori Lee. They confirmed what I was told. I bought the dress that day.
However, I happened to stumble upon photos from Madeline Gardner’s 2013 Collection and I think found my dress! I know that Mori Lee is made by Madeline Gardner.
The dress is fantastic and I most likely would have bought it even if I wasn’t under the impression that only 3 other people will ever wear my dress. But I don’t appreciate being mislead by my bridal consultant.
Please help me confirm that this is indeed the same dress. If it is, do I say something to the bridal salon? Or just let it go?
