So I’m not getting married until summer 2014 and I bought my dress August 2012 (yeah, i know, really early…) But I live across the country from all my family & friends and last summer we took a trip back home (right after getting engaged) and I wanted to be able to shop with my family. I bought the dress the first day we went shopping. When I look at pictures of me in it, I really do love the dress – it’s beautiful and I love the lace! But I’ve always LOVED the look of fitted dresses, and I’m not sure if A-Line is for me. The first dress is the one I purchased & the second dress is the runner up. Let me know what you ladies think!!
My current dress, Mori Lee 1612:
The other dress – Mori Lee 1862:

Whenever I see dress regret posts, I always hope that I think the original dress is better, but I think the second dress looks REALLY awesome on you! The first one looks good too, but I love the second. I hope everything works out!! :]

I definitely like the more fitted look on you.

I love the original dress once its altered properly it will be amazing!

The first dress is pretty, but it’s a very basic shape (very demure). I honestly think the second one has that “it” factor that puts it above the first.

I love your dress. It’s gorgeous and timeless. The lace is amazing on it.
And, I’m actually getting a bit tired of seeing everyone and their mother in a lace mermaid.
But, I’m also one who just felt amazing in a ballgown, but woudn’t let myself buy one because it just seemed to girly. If I coud do it over — ballgown all the way!! So, go with your gut.

@myparislove: Both are nice…but I really like the fitted dress on your body, it compliments it well (sorry, not trying to sound creepy).
Normally, I would not suggest buying another dress, but this would be a tough decision. After alerations, your original dress could look completely different and you may fall in love with it again!
Sorry, I am not really any help here….

I agree that usually with dress regret posts, I like the first dress better, but the second one has so much more personality and really shows off your gorgeous figure! My vote’s for the second one. 🙂

I vote for the first one. The second one looks like everyone else’s dress.
The first one, IMO, is much more special.
Have you thought about keeping the first one and getting a replica mermaid for the reception?

You look great in both, but dress # 2 is jumping out at me. Dress 1 has a prettier neckline though.
