    I think you have your answer then. Everyone says the first dress because it really does flatter you most. But you have your reasons for choosing the second dress, it seems like it’s your dream dress, and we’re just strangers, so get it!

    sakurabee :  why would you need convincing about the Mori Lee? Is it just because it is lace?

    I think you can be absolutely confident from everybody’s reactions here that there is no issue of how it looks on you, because it looks great.

    sakurabee :  if what you really wanted was tulle, not lace, did you try on any dresses in that fabric?

    If you could ignore the necklines of these tulle dresses, would you like them?

    I said ignore the necklines because they are all Casablanca and you can order them made with a higher neckline.

    sakurabee :  normally I would say don’t buy a dress without trying it on. You could end up hating it and then you’d be so stressed about finding a dress quickly that fits that you might be incredibly disappointed on your wedding day and looking back at pictures. That would put a huge damper on things. But you also might always wonder “what if” I would recommend seeing if any store can try to get a sample of it for you to try on before doing anything. Many stores are able to get a loner dress for customers to try on and then they send them back after. 

    I will say though that I bought my dress blind but I had already tried in 1 million dresses and I knew EXACTLY what looked good in me and what didn’t at that point in the game. I found a dress that I knew I had to have but no store in my entire state had it and the loner they could get would have Been a size 4 (I’m a size 10) and there’s no way I’d even be able to get it on to see if it would work. I ordered it blind bc I had so much time that I could figure something else out if I didn’t like it and guess what?! I put it on and instantly knew I was right. It was my dream dress and there was a reason I hadn’t loved any other dress. 

     

    But I really don’t think I would have risked it if it would have come so close to my wedding and I’d have to run out and buy a sample if it didn’t work out.

    The Mori Lee really is stunning on you, but you’ve got to go with your heart!

    I think the Mori Lee is glorious on you. Just beautiful. I’m not crazy about dropped waists so I prefer it to the Eddy K although the Eddy K skirt is very fun. The Mori Lee gives you such a beautiful shape. Maybe you could get some sparkly crystals or beads put on it… and a crystal edged veil??

    I love dropped waists and ruffled skirts too, but if they are too many ruffles, I don’t care for them. I voted for the lace, because out of all the dresses you posted, that is what caught my eye. It does look good on you, but like others said I would at least try to try on a similar dress to get the feel of the Eddy k before you make your decision.

    sakurabee :  so when you say “shiny” you don’t mean “satin” but something with a bit of bling?

    And what you want is a dress that has a skirt in a lightweight fabric (organza or tulle), a blingy bodice and a simple a-line silhoutte?

    FWIW I really like all of those dresses you posted, and you should be able to find somewhere to try on the Maggie Sottero dresses at least.

    I do not see how any dress could be more perfect dor you than that Mori.

    The dress you cant try on is, In My Humble Opinion, too trendy in its big ruffled skirt. I am already tired of those dresses and Im not sure that the trend has even peaked.

    sakurabee :  The first one you tried on blows the others out of the water by far! And if you tried on a similar dress and it didn’t work, then you are probably going to have problems with the Eddy K one as well–and how terrible will you feel if you hate it and it’s too late/your only choice? Go with the dress that looks wonderful on you and that you can try on.

    sakurabee :  Is the neckline too deep on this one? (Stella York)

    I’m suggesting it because it doesn’t have a line or belt across the waist which will help you look taller, and the silhouette is similar to the Mori Lee. It does have satin (it needs it for the a-line structure) but the top layers are tulle and organza.

    ETA: Another one – maybe a better option with neckline and the hem would be quicker to alter. Justin Alexander 8738.
