I am a motorcycle gal, most my friends are bikers and I’ve struggled at this dress thing by myself (if it doesnt involve grease – no one is really interested hehe)
So please do tell.
The first dress I tried on was a Mori Lee 4164 from the blu collection. LOVED this dress – it brought tears to my eyes, but they needed 6 months to order it and then it would need to be altered. I didnt have even 5 months. So…off searching I went.
Bought two gowns. A watters lace dress which I had altered to take some of the chapel train off (beach wedding) when I got it back they took ALL of the train – so now my bum looks flat and I feel like the bust is not flattering and a bit vulgar.
So garrr, I orderd a chiffon dress from light in the box as a back up. See the pics of the twist front white chiffon below.
My heart is still with the Mori Lee, but I cant find it anywhere on the used sites. Any gals selling theirs?
So here they are, vote for your fav please. Or I’ll drive the bikers crazy with this stuff some more 😉 And myself. I dont have any bridesmaids or moms or anything local, its been so difficult.

Mori lee for sure! You gotta go with the one that makes you sniffle! Plus it looks better than the other one, so you’re right! Mori Lee! I love the Mori Lee Blu collection!

Oh, that’s awful that you can’t really get the dress you love. 🙁
Although, I have to say, I love the lace on the second one, but I think you’re right, the bust isn’t so flattering (no offense).
I think that, if you can’t find the Mori Lee dress anywhere, go with the chiffon. I think it plays up your figure very nicely.
Of course, you look lovely in all! 🙂

I love the Mori Lee best, and the other lace dress second.
I’m selling a very similar Romona Keveza (under my name in the classifieds) but may not be the right size for you, I’m pretty short and small. Did you search for other similar used dresses?

Oh wow…yes, I also LOVE the Mori! You know…have you checked Jenny Yoo? I got my bridesmaid dresses there and they have a wedding dress that has a similar style to the Mori. Check out the Margaux, the Sasha, or the Felicity. I don’t know what their rush costs are, but if you like, it might give you other similar options to look for on used boards. Good luck!!

I LOVE the first dress on you. I’d ask the bridal salon if they can put a rush on it. If they can’t, ask a different one because it is possible!

Wow look at those responses, thank you!
Ya I think you are right on the lace bust of the one I have not being flattering, I totally keep harpin on it. (and I know I has a nice bust, so I wanna show it off in a good way)
So, I asked the bridal salon and Mori Lee doesnt do rushes. I have 60 days til weddin day as of today. I’ll check out the jenny yoo. Maybe I should try and find something similar on the used sites. Darn, if I had only ordered it right then it might have been here with 30 days to go.

Personally I love the lace one from the second shopping trip. And I don’t think there is anything wrong with the bust. It’s lower than I would do but I wouldn’t think it vulgar if I saw that at a real wedding.

I love the first dress, personally!

I actually like the lace gown and I don’t think it’s unflattering at all and if you think it is there are things that can help with that. Have you tried calling all local bridal salons asking if they have the Mori dress in stock, it’s worth a shot or even asking if they would let you purchase the sample they have if it’s in good shape.

I actually like the chiffon one! It’s figure flattering and perfect for a beach wedding, I think!
I’m sorry you couldn’t get the Mori Lee, though!
