I haven't even started looking!!

I don't want the shoes to overpower the dress, given that it is so light and 'beachy.' I imagine I might do more of a strappy heel, than something chunky. The shoes might take me a while so I should probably start looking soon, haha!

My wedding isn't for another year but I decided to start trying on some wedding dresses. I literally only tried on 7 dresses when I got to the Libby. I didn't love it on the rack but once I put it on I just loved it. I was with family and some friends and they all agreed, it was gorgeous. So I asked the lady helping me if I could buy the floor model (I figured I could save some $$ by doing this) and she went to find the manager to see how much they could sell it to me for. They came down from retail price of $978 to $800. I wasn't impressed so I asked if they could possibly go any lower. I mean, the dress was a floor model and some of the details were starting to see some wear, etc. So they came down to $775. I was ready to buy it right then and there when one of the people with me suggested I sleep on it.

The next day (a Sunday) I was about to head back to Chicago but first I wanted to stop at the wedding shop to buy my dress. I was ready and just couldn't be without it. Since I live in chicago i decided to purchase the dress in WI where it would be cheaper with taxes. Anyhow, I called the shop and asked the girl that answered to have the manager call me back. I wanted to let them know I'd be purchasing the dress (i was told to call before stopping in to purchase it). I never heard back from the manager. All day but we couldn't wait, we had to go back to Chicago.

So the next day I emailed a pic of the dress to my mom and she found the exact same dress on Ebay. The thing is it was in brand new condition, and one size smaller than the floor model I had tried on. Which was perfect! The floor model I tried on was just a touch too big for me. So I contacted the seller on ebay she confirmed it was indeed a true Maggie Sottero Libby and she told me she would sell the dress to me for $550.

So, there it is. I purchased the dress off ebay. The girl who sold it to me wound up getting a larger Libby dress - the one she sold was slightly to small for her so it worked out for me! I got it in the mail later that week and it's just lovely. It fits great, a few alterations will need to be done but nothing major. I'm so excited to be a Maggie bride!
good for you! Congrats!

OK, I think I'm going to do it. Every other gown I've tried on have not compared to Paigely. Every time I've tried on another gown, I've compared it to Paigely.

 

I think it's THE ONE smile159.gif

 

But with more than a year to go, am I too early or will this just give me 1 less thing to worry about so I can go on to choosing veil, shoes, jewellery, BM dresses...

I ordered Maggies Athena. I was wanting a dress so I could feel like a greek goddess, and one of my bridesmaids found Athena. i just looked at the tag and said no way, it was out of my price range, but my mother said to go ahead, and put it on. If it was the one she would pay the difference. and I fell in love! Hard! lol. there were tears and everything. Such a beautiful dress. It was ordered Feb 6th 2010 and it comes in this june. I start my fittings in sept. seems to far away. Cannont wait to get her back again.

 

Congrats on everyone elses dresses. they all seem so wonderful, and those with pictures they are all so pretty.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
