I totally have dress regret 🙁 I could not get the dress I really wanted because it would not be here in time for my wedding, even though last week the boutique told me it could be here 2 weeks before my wedding. I left the store crying. I found a similar dress – Mori Lee 1868, but it is over my budget at $1400. So I bought the Mori Lee 2512 for a great deal because at that point in the day I was over the whole wedding planning thing. I feel like I settled due to price and time. My dress is pretty but just not what I wanted. Do you think I should try to sell the one I have and order the similar one? I’m so torn. I like the Mori Lee 1868 but then I feel like I would always hate knowing I spent that much on a dress for a few hours. And I know that even $1400 is not a lot of money but we are paying for everything ourselves.
Here is me in my dress (not sure why that line is in there)
The one I would order Mori Lee 1868

@elibas: Can’t see the picture but I am sure your dress is not that bad! Are you able to exchange the dress and can they rush the order? Maybe you could bling up the current dress like adding a belt, necklace, etc….? Just a thought.

I think it’s beautiful, and would you have time to get something else? Selling a dress can take a long time! Go with your gut!

Okay, pic just showed up! LOL Maybe you can add a slip underneath to get a similar shape as the other dress on the bottom. Are you planning to wear a veil? And accessories would help too! The dress you have looks great on you!

Girl, I think you look absolutely beautiful in your dress, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m serious. You look so elegant, the beading details are lovely, and the dress gives you a great hourglass figure that I’m sure your Fiance will love! Honestly, I think the ruffles on the Mori Lee dress are super trendy, whereas the simplicity of your current dress is more timeless and I think you might love it more in the long run. Like I said, I wouldn’t change anything!!

The dress looks fantastic on you, you rock those curves.
Its a gorgeous dress, you could get an under skirt to get a more puffed out skirt.

If you already feel like you’ll hate yourself for spending that much money on the dress… think about what it will feel like after the wedding. I think the first dress is so nice, and perhaps more flattering for your body type as well. My vote is to keep it and use the difference to get nicer shoes, accessories or more wine for the reception!

I think the dress you picked is gorgeous. How do you feel when you wear it, though? If you feel beautiful and happy, then keep it. Coming from experience: if you put it on and feel awful and want to cry, find a way to get the one you want or you’ll never be happy.
I had horrible horrible dress regret. Horrible as in my heart dropped to my stomach every time I saw a picture of it. I wasn’t happy with it on. And I desperately wished I hadn’t purchased it. I found a dress I absolutely adore for $350 used. I still have a $1150 gown hanging in my closet too, but hey, I honestly don’t care. Someone will buy it eventually, and I’m happy now. lol

TBH, I like the dress you have way more than the ruffly one. It really surprises me that the ruffly one is more expensive……

Hourglass figure. Keep the dress. Yup.
