You only get married once. Do you think you’ll regret it forever if you don’t have your dream dress? If so, I would go for it. You can sell your Mori Lee to recoup some of the costs. Are there other parts of the wedding that you could cut back on to make up some of the difference? I don’t always love my dress. Sometimes I hate it. But I don’t have a dream dress and I know that whatever happens I’ll be self-critical about it, so I definitely would never get a different one. I just try to concentrate on loving the dress I have and remember how I felt in it. You must have bought it for some reason. . . sorry, kind of rambly. Bottom line, if you think you’ll be truly unhappy if you don’t and you have the finances to do it, get your dream dress.

Yes! I am also a September bride and I have thought about other dresses as well and have had dress regret. There are so many wedding dress options out there and that makes it hard to stop looking and thinking about other dresses. It very common to feel that way. I think you look stunning in your Mori Lee. The other dress is also gorgeous. You will look amazing in either one.

What it really comes down to is what is going to make you happy. If you will really be happy getting the Valenta dress and you can afford to eat the cost of both then do it. But if you decide to stay with your Mori Lee then I would stop looking at wedding dresses. That is what I finally had to do. That has made it a lot easier.

@kventures: OMG. so that is the SAME dress I have!!!! and I posted the same thing about cold feet like 3 minutes before you. That is just weird.

haha it looks totally different on us. I removed my flower but that’s about it . Funny how the same dress can look so different on different people.

I think it’s beautiful, and I have decided to stick with it.

I think you look great in it.!! If you have the money I suggest you buying the other one, and trying them both on. Or finding the other dress in a boutique where you can try it on. You may find out it isn’t all you thought it was.

I looked through a million pics one the internet and had a picture of the dress I wanted. Once I went to the bridal shops I realized what I thought I wanted was not at all what I wanted. Pictures are so deceiving and you don’t really know until you try the dress on.

IMO- (( which I am slightly biased haha. )) keep the mori lee it’s gorgeous.

I have to agree (as a previously 2-dress bride) that if you are unhappy with your dress, find one you love. But, once you find one, don’t keep looking! I purchased my first gown and continued to daydream about one I had tried on before that gown – why I didn’t buy, I dunno. So I went back and ate my deposit on the first dress (sample) and ordered the second. Cost me a couple hundred, but I’m happier.

That being said – I think the first picture is gorgeous! You look fantastic in it!

In my opinion, the second one is pretty. But, the first one is GORGEOUS. And you look AMAZING in it. I think it has more going on and a wow factor for me. I just bought my dress yesterday, and I think looking and daydreaming about what else is out there is what kept me from just plunging and ordering that one. Remember the reason why you bought the dress you did (besides the fact you look TERRIFIC in it!)

@kventures: do you have to sell the Mori to afford the other one? I think it would be best if you could try them both on , back to back. What if you buy this dream dress and you hate it , after selling the Mori lee?

and I ‘m sorry if you saw my post first and it worsened your dress doubt :(.. you are the 2nd person I’ve seen with this dress other than me .

This is why I always recommend that brides wait until just 6-7 months before buying their dresses!

I was a 3 dress bride, so I’m not going to tell you not to buy the AV.  However, make sure it is in your budget without selling the Mori Lee.  It is very difficult to sell a dress, unless it is a very expensive designer, unaltered, unworn and for a great price.  If you do sell it and/or sell the AV afterward, consider that good luck but do not make it part of your financial equation.

I love the ML on you, but I definitely know how dress regret feels!

@kventures: Yes, I started shopping exactly 6 months to the day and still ended up with 3 dresses:)  Similar situation–I wanted to buy while my mother was in town and rushed everything into one weekend.  Made one bad decision, then panicked and made another one.  Hemming is not a bad alteration unless you are really short (like me). Most brides can adjust with heel heights or more hemming.  If you can swing it, get the AV!

Your gown is gorgeous, but so is the AV. Follow your gut on this! No regrets. 🙂
