That dress is beautiful and I continue to compare everything to it (from pics online)
It’s the right size, shape, amount of material, has the accessories

That comment in itself would tell me that you have made your choice. 🙂  I would say not to second guess yourself.  Good luck in making your decision.  It will all work out and you will look beautiful in whatever you choose.  You are the bride! 🙂

Oh… and by the way… I did not have the YES moment either.  I just knew I felt beautiful in it….

Honestly? Forget the picture that you have in your mind and try on a bit of everything. I was so stuck in what I thought I wanted that it took me 7 months, buying a dress I ended up hating and trying on almost 200 dresses before I found “the one”. This was all because I refused to be open-minded.

I went in wanting a lace trumpet/mermaid, I bought a taffeta ballgown (the silhouette I refused to try on through most of my shopping).

That was how I knew I had found “the one.” If you feel beautiful in it, it will look great on your wedding day!

Not everyone has the YES moment, I did not.  If you feel good in it, and compare other dresses to that one, then get it and STOP LOOKING.  People who keep looking after buying I think have the most dress stress issues.  I had some dress stress myself, and kept looking at other dresses online, and I finally slapped myself out of it, and the stress really subsided a lot.

I agree with everyone here – but I want to add – you have SO MUCH TIME!!!! So don’t stress, just do one thing at a time =)

Honestly I felt the same way. It is a lot of pressure and a lot of opinions from different family members that are with you. I thought it was going to be the ultimate experience but it wasn’t much fun.

Finally I decided one weekend to just try on dresses by myself and fell in love. I think it was easier to find out what I wanted when it was just me focusing on myself and didn’t have all those voices giving out different opinions. Maybe have a day to yourself and go shopping?

You said you are not 100%. You still have time, at the end of the day you are right, it’s about you and your fiance and not the dress. So perhaps if you go shopping with that mentality it will take some of the pressure off of you and allow you to enjoy the shopping experience and perhaps you might be surprised and feel that this is it moment!

@leaaross: Did you end up getting the Mori Lee 1664?  I too am considering this dress.  Have you found any pics online besides the one of the model?  I feel like it looks quite different on her.  It is a beautiful dress and am sure you will look beautiful in it if you decided to go with it.  Please let me know if you have any pics.  Good Luck!
