I think I know what dress your talking about. Maybe the Billie? I took a look at her new collection and it looks like she added the t strap to a lot of her gowns. It's popular now. I also was thinking about the Reese, (like the Caprice, with the open front) http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=A3240  but I thought it was more cocktail. But I have seen some brides in it and it looked wonderful. I think it's more for an evening wedding though. Just my thoughts.


I think I may have found my shoes! I was looking for something with a lot of bling, sort of cinderella-ish so these Jimmy Choos were one I looked at...http://coolspotters.com/shoes/jimmy-choo-quinze-sandal. I saw it on some sites for. I also saw it online  


They also have a newer version.. http://www.jimmychoo.com/sandals/zafira/invt/015zafirasue/ 


I also fell in love with several Loubotins from their bridal too.. http://us.christianlouboutin.com/bridal.html 


Shoes are hard, I guess I will fig it out as I get closer. I like the colorful shoe idea too..but I don't think I'm going that route..only thing I know I want is a very sexy/ blingy shoe, 3 in plus. bride.gif

Maggie sottero has a dress very much similar to the caprice, however, the only difference is that it's a taffeta material, has a sweetheart neckline and it's more fitted to the body. I don't recall the name. I still LOVE my caprice more!! YES... I'm extremely excited!! I can't wait till I try on my dress when it comes in. As far as my veil... I got lucky. My bestfriend who is also my MOH is lending me her Veil. That'll be my something borrowed. It's gorgeous!! LOL I Haven't bought any shoes as of yet. Thinking I may indulge in a pair of Christian Loubotins!! Going to keep an eye out for a nice pair at the Neiman Marcus outlet. You can score a nice pair for as low as $400. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! LOL Have you found any shoes?





Yes, It's the BILLIE!! It's gorgeous. It's the same as the caprice except the chest and the material. I love the sweetheart neck and will add it to my caprice.  I've noticed that T straps is very trendy now. I think it's perfect for destination wedding dresses. I agree, the reese is too cocktailish. It's a cute dress but I wouldn't feel like a bride in it. Just my opinion. I love your shoe choices. My favorite louboutin shoe choice is very riche. Fabulous shoes!! Problem is if i'm going to purchase expensive shoes, I would like something more practical so I can get use out of them. I'm still debating whether or not i'm going with blue or pink shoes because they POP out against the dress or just go with a white or Ivory shoe. Hmmm..... Desicions, Decisions LOL

Adales - Any pics of you in Claire?  I did love that dress...Ireland just looked better on me.  I can't wait to see you in it as there are no pics of real girls in Claire that I could find.

Hi Ladies -


So I went dress shopping for the first time the other day with a mindset that I would be buying a dress that is lace.. needless to say, I did the opposite and bought the Adorae by Sottero and Midgley.  http://www.sotteroandmidgley.com/dress.aspx?keywordText=adorae&keywordType=any&page=0&pageSize=15&style=JSM1307


Its supposed to be coming in April.. I ordered it from a boutique in Massachusetts when I went dress shopping with family (born & raised, but now living in AL because my fiance is in the military). I won't get to try it on until May..but it'll be worth the wait :)

Ok, girls, what gives?  Am I the only one to find all Maggie gowns super uncomfortable?  I went dress shopping for the first time today with high hopes, wanting to try a bunch of Maggie Sotteros in particular.  I found them all too uncomfortable, is it just me?  I'm waiting for my friend to send me the pics, and then I'll post, but so far the Anniston and Jill made it onto my short list. Sharon was pretty too, gave me an amazing silhouette, but I'm just not crazy about the design.  I also tried Anastasia (didn't do anything for my figure), Michelle (waaay too heavy for the beach), SD5220 (very blah in person). 


I ended up trying on some Mori Lees afterwards, and I found those more comfortable, not as much corseting but still keeps my tummy in.  I feel like I'm so far from finding my dress, even though I tried on like 20 today.

Ok, here are my top choices. I tried on about 20 dresses, and the tops turned out to be Maggies based on looks - Jill, Anniston and Sharon. I think I will be a very indecisive bride, I'm just not in love with any of them, especially because I can't imagine spending 12 hours wearing any one of them :(

    • 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.
