Hello lovely brides!
I had been scoping the bridal shoppes in my area and was in love with Allure gowns. Then I stumbled upon this Mori Lee:
…and fell absolutely in love. Now, when I found out the price I was a bit suspicious. It was so reasonably priced I couldn’t believe it! But I worried about the quality. Wrapped up in the moment of trying it on, I forgot to check out how wrinkled it was, etc…
I was wondering if any of you have/had a Mori Lee gown and what you thought of the quality. Did it look like a wrinkled mess by the end of the night or was it okay? Was it comfortable? Breathable? Etc…The description on the dress says it’s made out of Radiant Taffeta (I’ve heard of taffeta before, but not that kind). I’m wondering how it holds up. I’m not a dress snob or anything like that…just a bit surprised at how great the price was!
Thanks in advance!

i’ve found that very simple dresses that don’t have much in the way of bling are much cheaper. The whole dress looks like its made outta the same material so that will help reduce the cost too. no expensive lace or swarovski crystals etc. i would think the material is fine. mori lee is a renowned designer, i was going to have one of her dresses myself until i discovered maggie sottero and now i’m more confused than every lol. If in doubt go back and try it on again, they dont mind and in fact are quite used to it I’ve tried one dress on 3 times now and am still undecided on it. Hope this helps

The dress is stunning. Mori Lee is a really decent designer, I would say go for it if you really love it.

When I tried on my Mori Lee for the first time, I immediately assumed it was over my budget (it wasn’t), so I was pleased with the quality as well. Granted, the only dresses I tried on were DB, Maggie, and Mori Lee, but I was felt like the Mori was the best made of all the ones I tried.

My dress is a mori lee and i love it. the price depends on the type of fabric and how much beading, detailing and extra work is involved in it. This dress is a very simple cut, with no beading and not too much detailing and thats why the price is lower than you expected. you can shop around to see what other places are charging for the same dress to see if you get similar prices

I had a different style of Mori Lee dress (Blu collection 4524) but mine was the same radient taffeta. It was breathable and had a pretty “glow” in pictures. I was in the rain/fog on our wedding day.. August in Kentucky… and sat down in it and danced all night and it didn’t wrinkle hardly at all. I think the style you posted is absolutely gorgeous..Go for it! 🙂

I absolutely love that dress. It would look terrible on me but if I had a rockin’ bod I would totally get it! As for Mori Lee, I have a number of those dresses on my list to hunt down and try on. I’ve heard great things about them so I wouldnt be too worried.
Ok, now back to wishing I could pull off that dress!!

Thanks for all of your help and advice, ladies! I went in to the bridal store with my mom and ended up buying it! What a relief!

I’ve been wondering the same thing. Glad I found this thread. I’ve never heard anyone speak of Mori Lee until wedding planning began. Her Madeline Gardner line (might be Kleinfeld’s exclusive?) is soo beautiful too, however the prices are muchh higher.
Currently obsessing over Mori Lee Blu 4709.

I wasn’t a fan of the Mori Lee taffeta after trying on the Allure taffeta. Big difference in the quality.

I was a Mori Lee bride. I had a different style than you but made of the Radiant Taffeta. My girlfriend who just got married this past weekend has the same material also for her Mori Lee dress.
I can tell you it wears well. very few wrinkles, it does have a light sheen to it which is nice. its not heavy like satin and their ivory colour looks really great (better than white i think). if you want to see pics, let me know.
