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'll be wearing Maggie Sottero for my wedding (Carla specifically). I purchased it locally for $1,300 before alterations. The price tag is steep but I think it's gorgeous. If you love the dress, I say go for it!!

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 have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
