I’ve heard some horror stories about dresses from David’s Bridal, but a lot of brides seem to buy their dresses from there because its more affordable.
Well, have you ever tried Mori Lee dresses? My cousin purchased a stunner last Fall that had beautiful beading & cost her under $600. It looked like it was 3 times that price… Mori Lees price range is usually between $200-1200. There are different lines for different price ranges.. something to check out budget brides 🙂
Anyone else have a good (or bad?) experience with Mori Lee?

My dress is a Mori Lee and I LOVE it! Its tea lengh, strapless, and has lace/beading under the bust and along the hem. It’s a beautiful dress and I got it for under $500 and that’s including the extra they charge for "plus size" which I only had to order because of my overly large chest.
I looked at David’s Bridal first and I didn’t really see anything that wowed me. Alot of what I wanted to try on, they didn’t have in my size and I surely didn’t want to order a dress without seeing it. They service there was pretty good. And there’s a bridesmaid dress there that I love and may go back and get for my shower or rehersal.
I am very happy with my Mori Lee dress and I can’t wait until June when it comes in!

Mine is a Mori Lee, I got it at the Running of the Brides and I love it! It definitely needs altered so don’t want to share the pic of me in it, but here is a stock picture. It doesn’t look this poofy IRL, and the gold detail in the pic does not stand out that much either. Its a very nice dress, lightweight, doesn’t feel like you are wearing a 50 pound brick around your neck and the beading detail is incredible. Best of luck to you!

I’m happy to hear there are other Mori Lee brides out there! not that the name should matter, but when I found what I *think* is the dress, I was so suprised that it was under $700!
Guess that means I can splurge on the shoes! Wooooooo!!!!!!

I tried on a zillion dresses. I fell in love with 1612 at a trunk show. Mori Lee dresses are gorgeous, fun, and the prices are unbelievable!
I couldn’t be happier about my choice!

personally, I hate davids bridal. I was engaged 4 years ago and they rushed me into buying a dress by telling me that it was going to be discontinued. Well, 4 years later the dress is still being sold in the stores. My ex cheated on me so there was no wedding. Now, I have to sell that dress. DB dresses are cheaply made, the alterations cost almost as much as the dress, and many times the alterations need to be redone by a professional seamstress after DB messes up.
I was also a bridesmaid 2 years ago. I had my shoes died to match my dress and they did such a sloppy job. There were spots all over the shoes. Disgusting!
I recently got engaged again and I went out and took my time trying on dresses. I found a Mori Lee dress and one of her trunk shows. It was a toss up between an Allure dress and the Mori Lee. The Mori Lee dress won out. It is stunning, awesome price, and SO light and comfortable!!
DB is good if you need a dress asap. Othewise, I’d stay away! Everyone is excited about Vera Wang at DB and I don’t understand why. I have a feeling brides just want to say their dress is a Vera Wang,,,,BUT its still from Davids Bridal!!! Blah!
