I went dress shopping a found there was a lot of dresses a liked and I’m having trouble narrowing them down! Help, what do you ladies think?
1) Mori Lee 2709
Love the 2-tone of the lace vs. the under layer! Loved the beading on the body, it was pretty but not so concentrated or overpowering. The only thing I didn’t love was the illusion neckline. The dress was 5 sizes too big so I felt it was hard to get a feel for the neckline. Was thinking that the neckline could be altered to be lower and follow the beading more, but I have no idea if it could be…
2) Maggie Sottero 4810
The beading and back of this dress were so pretty! The pictures didn’t capture the intricate bead work well. I am not sure on the sleeves though.
3) Flowy Mori Lee (?)
The beading in the back of this dress was beautiful! But I don’t think the top is for me. My Bridesmaid or Best Man loves this dress though. And it was pretty flattering I thought. Super light and airy, would be comfortable to wear all day!
Similar to the first Mori Lee but I like the neckline more. The lacy back is very pretty, as well as the long train. Didn’t wow me as much as the first dress though.
5) Beaded A-line
This was the first dress I really loved. I thought the top was really flattering, and the beading was beautiful. I don’t think I like the fit of it as much as the others though…

I actually like the first one the best! I think all the detail in it is beautiful 🙂 I think it’s the best fit for you too!

For me I think 1 or 3. It’s all about what your comfortable in and what you envision yourself to look like on your big day! Four is very traditional to me and pretty. I don’t think the second one does anything for you not like the first.

Love #3 on you! I hear you on loving too many gowns… I wish I could wear them on a regular basis 😉

I LOVE both 4 and 5. If I had to pick between them I would pick 4. I think both 4 and 5 really complement your figure, not to mention they seem to really just fit you well. The neckline on number 1 makes it very “meh” to me.

I like 5 the best but I’m not a fan of the sleeves/neckline of the others more than anything else… They are all pretty tho!

its honestly between 3 and 5 🙂 im in love how the back of the first dress looks. goregous!! but it’ll have to be between 3 and 5. because the rest just dont show your shape as good as those did. i LOVE how the front of dress 3 looks but the back probably not my favorite, but maybe you like it that way, or you could make alterations if you like. your decision 🙂 if it were between the last two, it’ll have to be…dress 5 for me. it just looks awesome with the veil as the finishing touch 😀 hope you choose well bee! no matter what you choose you’ll be the most beautiful gal there! so no worries! congrats bee!

Number 1 gets my vote ( but I love all the others too, especially number 3). Number 1 looks super flattering and the lace and the colour are just perfect.

Of those, I like number 3. But honestly I would keep looking. You don’t seem perfectly happy with any of them yet!

In these photos I like #1 and #4 best. I think the illusion neckline is actually very nice on you and would look even better once the dress was properly fitted to you. #1 has a nice combnation of lace and sparkle, which you seem to like. I find the back of #4 particularly lovely though so overall that’s probably my favourite for you, but that’s just in the photo and you seem to prefer other dresses in real life close-up detail. I am struggling to see the potential of #2 because it looks far too big on your petite frame but I suspect in your size it woudl look quite stunning too.
Don’t worry- you will look lovely.

Between 1 or 3! Those two are beautiful on you. The others have nice details but not an overall yes.

Number 3 is the clear winner as far as I am concerned!

Thanks ladies! Dress 1 definitely is my and my mom’s favorite. I just hate to pass up on it because the sample was so large and it’s hard to get a proper feel for the top. I wonder if I’d like the neckline better if the sample had fit, it looks nice on the model. Or if it’s able to be altered…like if the illusion on the front was a v like on the back, I think it would be a no brainer.

3 would probably be it if it was a beach or even summer wedding. It was extremely comfortable! I only put it on cause I had kept trying on lace gowns and thought I should at least try something else. But it’s really not something I had pictured myself wearing so I am a little hesitant haha
4 was actually my size or close to it, which I think made a huge difference in how much we liked it. It is beautiful for sure!
I never actually pictured myself wearing a strapless gown, but I was surprised how much I liked 5 when I put it on. I definitely felt like a bride wearing it 🙂
Thanks ladies, sounds like maybe another trip out to some other stores is in order to see if there’s something else out there that is just perfect!
