Went dress shopping this weekend and fell in love with the same 2 dresses I fell in love with online. I love them both. Obviously, ignore the length and the bunches from the fit. Our colors are going to be black, champagne and shades of purple. Which goes PERFECTLY with the ombre dress, but I guess I just love the other one so much it’s hard to let it go… The back of both are amazing… The Divina from the side is definitely more wow factor, but I like the front look of the ombre dress better. Our venue has lots of chandeliers, different shades of ivory and tannish, exposed brick… Opinions please?

honestly, to me, at least in pictures, the Ombre just looks like the bottom got dirty. They’re both gorgeous on you, I’d just be worried that the ombre will look like dirt in your pictures…not the look you’re going for.

I like the fabric on the divina better.. but I don’t think you can go wrong really! They’re both great.

They both look incredible, and I know people have negative things to say about the ombre effect on the Mori, but it’s just so unique and stunning! There is something that I absolutely love it about it!

the ombre looks a bit dirty at the bottom. it’s a nice dress but i don’t think that you will be happy with the photos in years to come.
the divina is stunning on you.

The Divina is one of the most beautiful dresses in that price range that I have ever seen. You look amazing in it! I do not care for the diagonal line of the skirt on the Mori Lee. I think it creates an unattractive line between the top of the skirt and the horizontal line of any belt or sash worn with it. In addition, I agree with prior posters that the ombre effect is a bit lost in translation on this dress, and the result looks uneven and dirty.

I always think it is harder when both dresses look similiar. They are both beautiful and they have pretty subtle differences in my opinion. Both would look great in your venue, you can’t go wrong.

I like the Mori Lee, but don’t really care for the ombre, but I’m not very fashion forward, either!

Both look great on you, but I like the Ombre better. I don’t think it would look dirty in pics, but I haven’t seen any actual wedding pics of it so can’t say for sure.

Definitely the Divina. Ombre colour aside, the diagonal line of the Mori Lee cuts you off and makes you look shorter. The Divina is gorgeous on you!

I have a dilemma:
- the Divina’s ruffles are so lovely BUT the bodice isn’t as flattering on you and the straight skirt seam makes you look shorter (since horizontal lines draw the eyes to the side instead up).
- the ML’s bodice/diagonal skirt seam is far more flattering on your figure since it doesn’t chop up your figure and makes you look longer/leaner BUT the flat ruffles aren’t as pretty as Divina’s highly textured, fluffed ones
I wish you could combine the dresses! But…I vote for Divina since the ruffled skirt is the first thing you notice about these dresses, and the Divina’s bodice will look much better once altered to fit you.

@peonyinparis: Hahaha, I like that we have completely opposite rationales but still manage to select the same dress. 😛

I love the Mori Lee, I actually bought this dress for my wedding! Does the bottom look pink at all? I havent actually seen the dress in real life!

Did you buy it online? It’s a GORGEOUS dress! You won’t be disappointed. But where did you buy it from? It’s more of a champagne… it’s called “blush” so you can definitely play up the pinkish hue by adding pink flowers and it would look great. If I go with that one I’m making the colors pale purple, champagne and black. I’ve seen pictures of it all together in our venue and it looks so beautiful! Post pictures once you get your dress 🙂
