    I agree.. trying it on is very different thank thinking it will look great on you. I tried on many different styles before finding the dress.. then I looked for a great price.

    BUT you're correct.. don't try on dresses that are out of your price range (although in the long run you may kick yourself for not spending the extra $200 or so).. remember alternations can add a few hundred to that number too.

      Well that's what I am thinking as well...alterations are going to add at least $150 to the price... I am short (5'2") so it will definitely have to be hemmed. I was just wondering if there are dresses similar to this one out there...ruching without all the poof...

        There is an awesome place
        IN CANADA
        you pay $25 shipping fee
        THATS ALL
        No duty
        I ordered my Maggie from there, as did my best friend.
        It is called TRINKLETS
        It is a girl, Andre's business. I have BBB'ed it and it all checked out and I have read several rave reviews from people in canada on the site weddingbells.ca
        I think you should contact her for a quote.
        Trinklets Creations - Affordable Vancouver Chair Cover Rentals !
        My Maggie was quoted between $1400 and $1600 penidng on the store
        and I paid her $1000

          purchase it in she short length
          shouldnt cost extra
          i ordered mine in 1 inch extra length and it was at no extra charge.
          with Maggie - if it is a corset back, most are, it reduces need for overall alterations too.
          I am not expecting to pay a cent in alterations :)

            Thank you, I had seen that site when we first got engaged. It's come a long way since. I will keep it in mind once I have tried the dress on to see if they can give me a better price than the local salon.
