I just took time to find pics of the Cleo on the Maggie site so that I could compare the two gowns. Although both dresses are beautiful, I think that the Merielle is MUCH more dramatic, stunning, and visually interesting, and it’s definitely more modern looking.
Not just anyone can wear this dress, because the bottom is very big, but you have the figure to rock this dress It’s quite beautiful and very different from almost anything else I’ve seen. My favorite features are the floral-textured bodice and the flowers at the waistline — they’re so distinctive and pretty!
I also think it’s wonderful that you were able to have such an exciting experience at Kleinfeld’s — especially since you were able to share that exciting day with your mother! 🙂

what shade of white is your gown?

I say you wear what you love on your wedding day. Don’t worry if it does or does not go with your venue. When we were little, we always imagine that white dress first, not the venue.

Your dress is awesome! I agree that it’s a once in a lifetime dress. I was between 2 dresses after 7 trips to stores and trying on over 40 dresses. One was more plain than the other and of course I asked my mother for her opinion and she pick the over the top one which is sooo not me. I bought it and too debated over if it was too much and would not fit our local hotel venue, but like you said I realized I was being crazy and that the dress would fit any venue as long as I loved it. Hopefully you see how beautiful your dress is and you stick with it. I love it! 🙂 Congrats on having a great story for you and your mom to share! Moms are soooo special during all of this!

OMG, it’s GORGEOUS on you!! I think it will go just fine with a modern space. It is very romantic and rich looking – absolutely beautiful.

I just googled Cleo to see what it looks like… and while it is a slimmer cut, it’s not any more modern looking IMO. It has a flower belt, same ivory/champagne satin that the bottom of your dress is made out of..

I have purchased this gown. I ordered it in January from Kleinfelds in Alabaster. I ordered it 5″ shorter from the designer though – I’m only 5’1.I will be picking it up in August for my October wedding. I hope that it makes you feel as pretty as it made me feel. I think its a beautiful and unique gown that is both modern and timeless at the same time.

I have had many people tell me that you may have an idea dress, but sometimes that idea dress just isn’t for you. Plus you look amazing in that dress, its just gorgeous I wouldnt worry too much about the dress not fitting with your venue. The dress is very modern and young. I am sure it will be perfect.
