All Maggie Sottero brides post here

DRESS HELP!!!  I bought a Maggie dress, the Geneva, I absolutely LOVE the dress....BUT here's the problem.  I bought it when we were planning a wedding in Savannah GA, ceremony in front of a fountain in Forsyth Park, reception in a warehouse-style old railroad museum.  Well...everything started getting soo expensive and stressful we just scratched the entire thing are getting married on the beach in Mexico where we are going to honeymoon, and just throw a big party when we get home.  It will just be my fiance and I and I soo worried now that my dress is too formal for the beach.  I keep going back and forth on whether I should keep it and wear it on the beach or go with something a little more beachy/flowy...I would LOVE some input!!!   geneva 2.JPGgeneva 1.JPG

I'm getting married December 6th, and have yet to try on dresses, but long before being engaged I fell in love with Maggie Sottero! I LOVE her use of draping- almost everything she makes is amazing!!! What blows my mind is that the designer I fell in love with is actually sold where I live in North Dakota. That's beyond luck! I'll be scheduling an appointment soon to go try on dresses next month. Can't wait!!!! :)

My dress was "Denise" from the Maggie Sottero 2010 Spring Collection.  I chose the light gold colour after my best friend convinced me it would look good with my skin tone and the beach, and I couldn't be happier with it!  The colour looks amazing in photos and I got so many compliments about how unique it looked.  The details and beading was incredible and the dress was really comfortable too.  Wish I could wear it again!! :)

CanadianLindsey: Wow! Your dress is stunning! You look like a model!  Congratulations! What beautiful pictures.  I would love to see more pictures, if possible. I'm glad to see the light gold color, it does look really amazing.

 

Two days ago I finally picked a dress.  It's really hard to decide, they are all so gorgeous! I chose the Maggie Sottero "Poppy" in light gold.  Below is a pic of me trying it on.  The sample didn't fit, so it was quite tight! But I still loved it.  I'm hoping the lace style will be lighter for an outside wedding.  I'm getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum on June 11, 2011.  I had to pay a $150 rush charge and they said the dress will come in late May or beginning of June.  That sounds a little stressful, so I hope it comes in early or at least on time!

My photographer did a great job at making me look good! check out her blog to see more photos(if you haven't booked a photog yet I highly recommend Citlalli!!!)  http://citlallirico.com/blog/?p=2761

 

Your dress looks very light and airy! Great colour choice! ;)   If you don't need major alterations then you should be fine for time. Good luck with the rest of your planning!

    • 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.
