I was just wondering if I could get some opinions about the dress I purchased (Mori Lee Voyage 6726) and the one I’m starting to wish I had (Mori Lee Blu 4808). I really liked my dress the day I tried it on and purchased it but since then I’ve looked at the pictures of me in it and have just thought that it looks like a white sheet and I’m not so sure anymore. The other dress, I’ve started to like more and more because it looks soft and dreamy and now I’m just freaking out.

@muffinmel: Both dresses looked so similar that I had to scroll back and forth a few times to really get the idea. I see the difference but you know what? Your dress is totally beautiful on you! What are you wearing under dress #1? Does it feel too poofy for you? Can you take out a layer of crinoline so that the dress can have that flowier feel to it?

The silhouettes are really similar. If you wanted to, could you change the order and swap them? The first dress is more elegant (the satin lends a more glamorous feel) while the second dress is more romantic, princess-like. I have to say I prefer the sash on the second dress, will you be adding a sash? The champagne/peach belt on the first dress doesn’t really work IMO.

I am not a fan of satiny materials so I prefer the 2nd dress…BUT you do look beautiful in both.

Both dresses are very similiar. I don’t think there is enough of a difference to make a change. It looks beautiful on you. You’re probably going through the same thing i did. You see people on here post all of these gorgeous pictures of their dresses and want them all! yours is very beautiful. I like the top and the larger sash on the 1st one.

The fabric on your dress will look softer once it’s steamed, I think the wrinkles in the picture are throwing you off. Slightly smaller crinoline would help with a softer look too. I love the belt, and after looking at the pro pics on mori lee’s site, I think the one you chose is so much nicer. Now stop looking at dresses and enjoy the beautiful one you chose!

Thank you for all the encouragement! I’m not usually indecisive when it comes to clothes shopping and picking out the wedding dress was the thing I was least worried about when I got engaged.
To be honest, the pouffy-ness of the first dress is one of the things I initially liked about it but I do think that all the wrinkles are putting me off a little (and I’m quite short so hopefully once the dress arrives and I take it for alterations it will seem ‘lighter’).
@peonyinparis — the sash comes with the dress but I’ve been lately been thinking of looking for a different sash — similar width but more sparkly and white. I don’t know.
Again, thanks for the advice. It’s made me feel a bit better.

I love the first one! But then again I’m a sucker for satin 🙂

@muffinmel: 1! It seems to suit you more.

Those two dresses are SO much alike that I definitely do not think it would be worth switching. I think you’ll like your dress again once you see it steamed/pressed and put on all your accessories.

I like the first dress better- like how the sash looks. They are very similar- can’t go wrong in either!

Thanks for all your kind words and support for the first dress but I have to admit that after a weekend of fretting that I went back to the store and tried on dress 2 and just loved it a whole lot more than dress 1 so…if you know anyone looking for a dress . I was so excited about the wedding dress part of my wedding that I just mucked it up completely and it became a whole lot more stressful than I thought it would be. Oh well, at least I’ve given my sister plenty of things to make fun of me for in her speech at the reception.
