    Nobody is going to be checking your label as you walk down the aisle, or comparing it to your prom dress. Get whichever dress you like best!

    I don’t think you should be worrying about designer and price.  You need to pick something that makes you feel beautiful regardless of who made it and how much it cost.  That being said, I like the Mori Lee best.  You should add a poll.

    I like two or three, one is too similar to 3 so it is not worth the extra money.. and if you can get beading added to 3 for minimal cost then I would so go for that one!

    Nobody is going to ask who made your dress, all that is important is that you love it!

    I really like the fit of the first one best.  If cost is no issue.

    I think the first one looks the best on you, although I’m not sure that is a picture of you.

    Agreed, no one will care or may even recognize what designer your wedding dress is.  Even after all these hours on wedding bee and looking at dresses, unless it was like the Adorae, I’d have no idea who the designer would be.  Just get the one that looks the best on you and you’ll feel and look like a million bucks.

    The last one is my favorite. The first one accentuates your hips, and I don’t care for what looks like quite a large bow on the second one.

    I voted for #1. I honestly like the shape of 1 better than 3. I think the way the train comes out is prettier, and I prefer the more subtle ruching to the pleats in 3. Plus, if you put buttons on it, I much prefer buttons to a corset back.

    It’s really a personal preference.  Which do you like better?  The design and construction of the Romona is amazing.  Yes, I can tell which one is more expensive and I can tell the first one is a Romona.  But that is because I look at wedding dresses all of the time!  Most people aren’t like me.  

    I wanted a designer dress for my wedding because I love fashion and there was just no way I was going to do anything else.  Are you like that?

    I think the Romona Keveza is absolutely stunning on you, and, if it is in your budget, I would choose that gown. It is extremely figure flattering, especially from the back. I’m sure that you could have it altered a bit so that you find it to be form-fitting enough from the front as well.

    Although the Ian Stuart is quite beautiful, I do not love the lines of the dress as much as the Romona. It is also much more expensive, and, unless you are completely sold on that gown, I do not know if you really need to spend that much to look amazing on your wedding day. I believe that the Romona delivers all the impact that you are seeking.

    The Mori Lee is very pretty as well, and it actually offers some similarities to the Romona.  However, it clearly is not the same calibre of gown in terms of the fabric or the construction.  It’s highly likely that both the Romona and the Ian Stuart are silk (a natural fabric) and have much better construction.  The Mori Lee, though very nice, would have to be a synthetic fabric (polyester) with a taffeta finish at that much lower price point.  This is not to say that there are not some amazingly beautiful gowns made of polyester, because there are.  However, silk just is a much more luxurious fabric and it is more breathable.

    I was between #1 and #3. I liked the shape that 3 gave you over 1.
