    I love the dress you already ordered, it’s stunning. The other one is pretty too but I don’t like where the fabric changes.

    So with posts like these, sometimes I decide which dress I like best before reading the post to make sure I’m not biased and telling someone to stick with their dress to keep the money. Coincidentely, I really still like the dress you have better 🙂 You’re right, they are both SO similiar, and you are stunning in both, but I would stick with what you have. At the same time, you do have to follow your gut and if your heart is truly with the new dress, do that becasue you won’t regret it! Gah, decisions are so hard! Good luck!!

    I like your original dress better! You look amazing. $600 is a lot of money to throw away and you would be cutting it so close with the new dress that you will just stress yourself out unnecessarily. Weddings are stressful enough without adding the fear of “I will have nothing to wear” to the mix.

    I like the Jodie by Enzoani better.  Ordering though from that bridal shop with that time line would be cutting it super close though given that they’re also wanting 10 weeks for alterations.  If you decide to go with the Enzoani maybe see if you can find one that’s new or used from one of the pre-owned sites in your size.  Aside from some cost savings (not really since you’ll be losing a chunk of cash from the Mori Lee) then you won’t have the time line crunch.  I think some of the used sites have new and unaltered Jodie but not sure if they are your size or not.

    I did essentially the same thing. I bought a dress that I thought everyone else would like, and then I kept thinking about the dress I really wanted. I ended up buying the second dress and I’m so glad I did! I would have always regretted not going with my gut. This is your one chance, to me I think it’s worth it to look the way you want.

    Go with the Enzoani. It seems to suit you better and you look happier when wearing it.

    futuremrsjessicab:  I like the new one better, but I don’t think it is worth all the money to change it up since they are pretty similar! I love the style of both!

    If money isnt an issue, then I would switch to the new one, because it is GORGEOUS.

    You are going to hear many different opinions. There will always be “something better” if you keep looking for dresses. STOP TRYING ON DRESSES!

    Follow your heart and your gut if money if not an issue for you. You want to be happy in whatever you wear.

    That being said, you look beautiful in EITHER dress. They are very similiar and both very pretty.

    Both dresses look nice on you, but I prefer the Enzoani. My wedding was in May and I ordered an Enzoani in early January after having dress regret. Luckily, the store called the company and was able to order a dress that was already in production and it arrived in about one week! I did however have to order one or two sizes larger, and only one color was available. The dress would have needed alterations anyway, so it worked out. I never had any doubts about the second dress.  You might be able to get the Jodie with plenty of time for alterations. Go with whichever dress you love!

    The Mori Lee appears to me to be of much higher quality, despite the slightly lower price tag. However, I think you should choose the dress you most love. Here is a link to an Enzoani Jodie on preownedweddingdresses.com. It is new and un-altered and discounted at 30% ($800 off). Buying pre-owned will not only offset the cost of the deposit, but also enable you to receive the dress right away. https://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/view/156955/Enzoani-Jodie-Size-6.html

    futuremrsjessicab: Mmm a toughie. I love Enzoani dresses and that one is gorgeous and you look amazing in it. But…I do like the Mori Lee on you and I actually prefer the neckline and the backline of the corset on you better of the Mori Lee than I do the Enzoani. I do like the skirt of the Enzoani inparticular the back. It depends I guess how much value/importance you place on what… I think this maybe something you need to listen to your heart on…

    The morI Lee is beautiful, and much more flattering.  I would keep your ml and don’t risk not having a dress on your wedding day

    you look amazing in both. I like the new one, but they are VERY similar. I got a second dress (however they were completely different looks). I stopped looking and trying dresses on the second I bought because I was happy.

    futuremrsjessicab:  That’s a tough one. You look great in both, but the front of the Jodie is STUNNING. Love it! But…I don’t really like the train, particularly the overlay. Looks like a little nub. The back of the other one is much better. So, because of that, I think I’d stick with the original. You look gorgeous in it!
