    The Mori Lee looks a lot better. It gives you more of a shape. The other one cuts you strangely.

    Dear futuremrsjessicab:   listen to the advice these ladies are giving you.   You will look beautiful in anything you wear.   You loved this dress when you bought it, stop trying on new dresses.   Its a waste to throw away $650.   You can have alterations made to have the dress made to your preference.   Love Me!

    I wouldn’t be asking anyone else what to do – you need to do what YOU want. It’s your wedding. $600, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t that much money if it means wearing a dress that makes you feel 100% on your wedding day.

    I agree with everyone! I think the dress you already bought is a stunner! and I don’t think they look different enough to throw away 600 dollars..

    Maybe you could alter the one you bought to look more similar to the train on the other dress?

    Both dresses are showstoppers!

    The whole dress, but particularly the back on the Mori Lee is just beautiful on you. I honestly think they both look lovely. I feel like the Mori Lee is very classic with its clean lines, whereas the Enzoani is a little more unique, but has the potential to look dated with the ruffles in the front.

    Ultimately do what your gut says. Maybe give it a little bit of time to really think about it before you jump! I had two cases of dress regret and I’m glad I was talked out of it both times. You will go back to loving your dress, but everyone is right: stop dress shopping!!! 🙂

    I agree with PP’s, the 2 dresses aren’t different enough to go for the new one. For me, it isn’t so much the $600, it’s the stress/waiting for the new one plus a potential 10 weeks of alterations (seriously 10 weeks??). What if theres an issue with delivery or something? The original dress is in, it’s beautiful, and it’s VERY similar to the Enzoani.

    I actually like the new dress much more, it’s modern and i love tiers,   but I’m in the minority here.  OP, listen to your gut,  and if you know that you gonna regret not  getting Enzo, then go for it. However,  you might need to pay extra for express  order to get the dress in time.  One thing for sure,  no reputable store would order a dress without checking first if it’s gonna come in on time.  The manager would be able to tell if it’s doable before you commit.

    1. Wear the Mori Lee, it’s clearly prettier and more flattering on you.

    2. Stop looking at other wedding dresses. 

    3. Seriously, stop looking.

    Agree as well. For me its not about the money, I think it’s not that much to spend if that’s your DREAM dress. However personally i like yours better! I’m not a fan of the tiers…

    wow we are in the same exact predicament – I posted in another thread about how I bought my dress but was really in love with the Enzoani Jodie. My sister and everyone else at the store liked the dress I purchased better which FYI is nearly identical to your Mori Lee – same silhoutte and sheer back panel. I’m voting to keep your dress bc the Jodie is sooo beautiful but something about it just doesn’t flatter as much as the other dress – everyone seems to agree it fits beautifully AND you wont lose money. Keep your dress!

    ETA: I even think this is the same salon where I bought my dress: RK bridal in NYC? Crazy coincidence!
