Some of my favorite posts on the boards are about bees finding their wedding dresses, so I decided to share mine! It’s Mori Lee 2406, in a light ivory. (Sorry the lighting wasn’t too great! And ignore the bra straps, especially in the last picture.)
I was only planning to look around for ideas of what I liked best, but when I tried this dress on I fell completely in love. It was discontinued, the last one in the store, and just happened to fit me perfectly! The next day my mom and I went to 4 other bridal salons, and none of the 15-20 dresses I tried on compared to this one! There was always something missing about them. (Also, this one happened to be cheaper than the rest!) I love the ballgown style with pickups, and this one had just the right amount of beading and lace appliques throughout the dress, all the way down to the train. I also like the corset back.
I originally planned to get a strapless dress and then wear some type of sleeves or lace shrug for the ceremony, and then go strapless for the reception. But then the store had the straps in the 2nd picture, which happened to be by the same designer, and I love them! I was debating on whether to have them sown in, or snapped in somehow so I could remove them later. Right now I’m leaning toward having them sown in, because they think they add a lot to the dress! What do you all think? 🙂
