I’ve been hunting for a wedding dress for a few months now and it’s almost crunch time! (wedding is August 2017)
I’m very particular with what I’d like:
Straps, low back, mermaid, light/white/crystal beaded bodice, and tulle bottom that is finished; preferably a cathedral style train.
So far my favorite dress has been Eve of Milady 1557.’
I do intend to put fabric where it is sheer as I am having a traditional Catholic wedding in the church.
Should I say yes or does anyone have any other dresses in mind?!

As long as you add fabric, it will be great! Without it, the dress looks choppy and not particularly elegant. HOWEVER! With the panel you want to add, it will be lovely! Good choice, hun.

It’s stunning! Cover the sheer part, and stop shopping! 😉

jtwedding : That dress is beautiful!
If you didn’t want to bother with the alterations route, this is a Mori Lee that I think fits your criteria?
Otherwise, yes to that dress with a panel 🙂

If the church allows backless and strapless, it’s lovely. My friend had to wear a long sleeved lace boleo to satisfy her church.

jtwedding : I’d buy it in a heartbeat. But I’d cover the bare panel. It makes it look like you’re wearing a bra.

jtwedding : I love love love this dress on you! Gorgeous! I am considering a very similar dress to yours (Mori Lee) since I’m having slight dress regret :X

agree with PP. not a fan of the sheer, but if as long as you panel that, the dress is amazing!!

jtwedding : Not gonna lie, not a fan of the panel area, as someone else pointed out, it makes the dress look choppy and is not flattering on your waist. I love the Mora Lee that someone posted in this thread.

Thank you all so so much!!!
I appreciate everyone’s input!
You all are right on target with the Mori Lee option!
I tried that on but the train does not sit as well I think because it does not have the horse hair and probably because the dress was much bigger than my size.
Considering a price difference of almost $2k more for the EOM vs Mori Lee… Which one do you like better?

jtwedding : I prefer the Eve of Milady dress (with a modesty panel)!

I second Eve of Milady. If you are concerned about the church, you can always wear your hair down or a veil. That provides some coverage. That being said, the dress is gorgeous. You look fabulous.

I too tried on the Mori Lee and I agree that the train doesn’t look as flattering as I would like. I think the dress you posted is so perfect on you. I personally would want to add fabric to the front but if you love it the way it is then go for it!!
