We are having a New Years Eve Wedding in 2014 and Im starting to dream of dresses. Our colors will be Black White and Sparkle. I want something different and memorable as we are having an evening reception and it is on New Years Eve, but I always want to look glamorous.
We have a very tight budget so I was playing around with the idea of a white prom dress as they tend to be more sequined and also cheaper but can steer away from being bridal… I fell in love with two very different dresses. Please tell me which one you think would best fit our theme or which you like better or just vote in the poll 🙂
Mori Lee Paparazzi style 93040 in white and black
Maggie Sottero Divina ***BUT IN IVORY OR WHITE NOT BLUSH***

I actually really love the Mori Lee for your theme, especially since I have seen the Divina so many times.
I think you’d have to have a big personality to pull it off though. Is that you?
If you’re still not sure, maybe you could get address made by these people? Reasonably priced, and they could make your dress in black and white in a range of different styles.

It would help to see it on you to decide. Are you having a traditional ceremony? If so i would go maggie cause it’s more bridal and still glamourous. the mori lee looks like a reception dress but not necessarly a ceremony/ bridal but i still like it too

@clairebbbear: Yes I agree. Well let’s just say I wear fake eye lashes everyday and my friends make fun of me for being drawn to sparkly blingy things! LOL
@malouloune: I’m going to try and find a store that carries them to try them on for sure but it might be hard to find the mori lee one as the designer discontinued it so I would have to probably purchase online… We are having a ceremony in a little white chapel but a very short relaxed ceremony.
So hard because the Mori Lee is so fun for New Year Eve but the Divina is so Gorgeous and romantic!

@missglitterbee: Even before reading about the dresses i scrolled right down to look at the pics, and I instantly thought the first of looked promish… and then i read that it is prom…
I picked the Divina…

@missglitterbee: Being honest here… my first reaction to the Mori Lee prior to reading your post was “That looks like a prom dress”… Though it is more “new years eve” than the Maggie because of the sparkle, but the Maggie in ivory or white might step up to the task. Or maybe there’s a way to add more sparkle to the bodice?

I voted for the Mori Lee, it sounds like it fits your personality and your theme very well. have you seen @Badabing88’s dress? She is wearing a pink Mori Lee prom dress for her wedding.

@SkyChick: Yeah you are right. Thank you. I think the Divina would be more accepted by my traditional family members also. I’m sure there is always a way to add more Bling, great idea!!

@Eckle: Yes I love Badabing88’s dress, I wish the white one was all white. I don’t like the Mori Lee for the black but more so the fit and the sparkle and the Wow factor. The Pink/blush one is gorgeous!

@clairebbbear: I was originally going to use weddingdressfantasy to make my dress until she lied to me in several emails! I won’t deal with someone that isn’t honest with me.

I love the Mori Lee especially for your theme. If you were having a romantic castle / Mansion traditional wedding I would say the Divina, but your not.
If you are having a crazy fun, party into the night kind of wedding you want a dress that will reflect that. Who cares if the dress came from the prom section. If you wear it on your wedding day that makes it a wedding dress. Plus you pay mark up on the fact that its a ‘ wedding dress’ take the extra cash and splurge on something else.
I give you props for celebrating outside the box, and say dont cave to the conformists! Dare to be different and stand away from the crowd.
