All Maggie Sottero brides post here

Recommended Posts

I've loved Maggie ever since I first saw one of her dresses and I seem to keep coming back to her when I look for my dress. So far I'm leaning towards the Aspen since I wanted some black detail in my dress. Just want to know how many other brides out there choose Maggie for their dress and if you were happy with your selection. Also did everyone buy their dress from a gallery or online? What was your experience with each? Was there a huge price difference as well?

 

Thanks for any and all input. I still have a ways to go before I commit to a dress but I like to be as informed as I can be.

I will be a Maggie bride and I am THRILLED!! I ended up buying my dress at a store locally, I just got nervous at the thought of ordering my dress online. Not quite sure why. The local store had a fantastic price so I wouldn't have had much savings after shipping anyways. My dress hasn't come in yet but I'll let you know how I feel once it arrives.

 

Good luck :)

I had a Maggie as well (martina). It looked great the wedding day and held up pretty good in jamaica (i didn't need it steamed).

I bought mine from Sophie's in London. Price was around 1000 for my dress I think and 200 in alterations.

 

Go for it!! You want the dress of your dreams ..it makes your wedding day all that much better!

Thanks girls. Your dresses are stunning. Maggie sure does a good job. There is only one shop here that carries her and luckily it was the same bridal shop that my step-mom used to work for. So she's going to talk to her old boss and see if she can get me a discount. I just wasn't sure if I'd still be getting a deal or if going online would be better.

Hi there....I am also going to be wearing a maggie gown (well a Sottero Midgley to be exact)....anyway, I love ALL of her gowns! I saw a photo of one online last summer and I called every single shop/boutique in the entire Dallas, TX and Oklahoma City area and not one of them had that gown. They said it was from the new line and they wouldn't be able to get a sample until October or Novermber. I was so worried, especially since it takes so long to get them once it's ordered....anyway, after days of deliberating on what I should do (I am very picky on how things look on me and especially my wedding gown!) I finally decided to order it and hope for the best!

 

A local boutique ordered it for me in August and said I would have it by the 1st week of December. I finally received it the 3rd week of January! I have to say, it was definitely worth the wait.....I loved it as soon as I saw it and it fit perfectly (except the length....I ordered a petite and still had to have 3 inches cut off!).....I should be getting a pic of me in it from my 1st fitting and I will post as soon as I do. Here is the link to see what it looks like:

I was a Maggie bride, and absolutely loved my dress (the Colby). It fit like a glove and didn't need any alterations whatsoever (yay for corset backs!). The fabric was light and flowy, perfect for the beach, and I wasn't tripping over it (I have a tendency to be clumsy).

 

I had the best experience buying it too. The store was empty when I arrived, the saleslady (Brooke at Bridal Creations in Kinston, absolutely wonderful lady!) was very helpful, and when I stepped out of the changing room it was just the most amazing feeling...I still get goosebumps thinking about it!

 

I just wish I could wear it again

    • I personally think its rude to go off the registry to buy a gift unless it's something handmade or very personal (ie a pocket size notebook). My FH and I have moved 4 times in 4 years and dont want extra stuff to take with us. We also live downtown in an expensive city and our rural families dont understand the space limitations of this. We truly dont have the space or desire for any special occasion dishes or items with only one use.
    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
