So curious about how much possibility for discount/sale there is for Mori Lee gowns – whether it’s for samples, from other brides, or at salons just having good sales.
I also found (I think) the gown I want online for 18% off new, unaltered. If I’m absolutely sure it’s THE DRESS, should I get it or should I look for even better discount? (I of course will try on the dress in person and try on it’s competition first before buying to make sure)

@Shkragoldfish: you can see if a local bridal shop will match the price. Most of them in my area do….

I ended up getting mine for $200 less (or 20% off) the original price because my mom is a great negotiator. With tax and shipping it ended up only being $120 less than the sticker price, but I was just happy to get a deal.

I ended up getting mine for $600 instead of $770. Plus the $600 did not include tax and the $770 did (would have actually been like $830). All I did was call bridal shops that carried Mori Lee throughout the state and ask how much the dress was. I had one store tell me $600. So I called my shop back and asked if they could beat that quote.

I got mine for $570 instead of the original price which was $649. I got the discount because my sales lady said she gave discounts to her girls that come in and buy a dress on their first visit.

I originally saw my dress at one shop for $1299*. I absolutely loved it but couldnt justify the $300 over budget. I kept shopping and found it again at another shop, this time I think the price was $1350 or so. I asked my sales girl about price matching and she said that she could give me 20% off if I bought the sample that day (right size, color, and with the delicate beading and lace still in perfect condition they couldn’t have had it more than a couple days) Sooo I bought it! Before tax it came to a little under $1150, so only $150 over budget wasn’t so bad for such an intricate dress 🙂 Especially since I didn’t have to wait months for it to arrive and allow time for the order to get messed up or anything.
*All the numbers in this post are approximate, this was 6 months ago so I can’t quite remember specifics!

I bought my dress on Black Friday weekend. 20% off plus a free veil. And, I live in Mn so no clothes tax.

Where did you end up getting yours from? (I ask b/c I’m in Texas as well and am completely in love with Mori Lee Blu 5115)

My Mori Lee cost $190 including tax! It was originally $900. I purchased it at a sample sale.
Have you tried the dress on in person yet? If you have, I would buy the dress before it’s gone. Dresses get discontinued pretty quickly.

tried it on this Saturday and loved it. however, its $975 and I want to spend $500 or under. while I am in love with the dress, I know I will be pretty in whatever I wear so its not worth starting married life in debt.
thus why my current search to find a sample sale near Austin/Houston OR buy a used one from someone… 🙂
