      Today, my friends, I joined you in becoming a MAGGIE BRIDE! Everyone's dresses are gorgeous, and now I'll have a Maggie of my very own!

      Originally, I had gotten a very simple, classic a-line dress at David's Bridal, but I kept having regrets that it wasn't "The ONE", so I decided to keep looking. I had seen a few other dresses that I really liked at DB, but I thought, "If I am really going to get a different dress, I am not going to let cost be the major factor. I wanna try on some Maggies!" (which are still reasonably priced with high quality material and construction). And I have found the gown of my DREAMS! Even my mom loves it and she and I have varying taste in most everything!

      The dress is actually Sottero & Midgley RSM1038 and I positively HAD to atleast try it on, and I'm so glad I did! Because it was not already in stock at the bridal salon, I had to pay $50 to have a loaner/sample dress bought in specifically for me to try on at Simone's Unlimited in Hanover, PA (one of the retailers the website recommends) and boy, was it ever worth the wait! Even the veil and the hair accessory match the dress perfectly -- so exciting!

      Here is a pic of the dress on the model:

      And here are a few pics of me in the sample dress. (Please bear in mind that the sample was a size 6, and I am a street size 10/12, so it's a little snug and the corset isn't laced as it will be when I have the proper size...but I loved it anyway, and ordered an 8!)

      I don't think it's possible to be more excited than I am right now! Waiting 4 months for my dress to come in is going to be so hard....and waiting until May to wear it for my wedding is going to be even worse!

              Thanks so much, Jillian and Adelaide! I didn't know it would be possible to love and article of clothing as much as I love this GOWN! It's still sort of "princessey", without being too over the top -- I'm thrilled! If I had been dreaming of my wedding dress since I was like 5 years old, this is what I would have had in mind all along!

              And Sam, I checked out ASM3275 on the Sottero & Midgley site -- that dress is divine! Everything about it screams destination wedding! You should totally try it on....I'm sure you'll love it more on YOU than any pic of a model wearing it. Let us know what happens, will you?

                    I'm a Maggie bride (Reese)!!!
                    I'm in Toronto, and bought my dress at Bridal and Beyond. They were having a Maggie sale to my luck and I got $200 off the dress! My experience was great as the dress came in and early and perfect! Sooo excited to wear it :)

                      What is with all this Maggie hype?? I haven't even heard of her until I tried dresses on this past weekend and my friend was like ahhh that's a Maggie Sottero dress and I was like and.... 2 of 4 dresses I love are hers and they are gorgeous but I wouldn't die for one lol. I am big into designers but never heard of her. I guess you have to be up to date with the whole wedding world haha. I love all the dresses you ladies posted on here and can't wait to get mine. Waiting for the store to call me to see if they can get one in ahhhh. I might have to order off of the rack and do major alterations to it. Will keep you posted
