      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)

      @JB321  I was thinking of altering my neckline as well and making it sweetheart. 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.

              Yes I agree the Billie is gorgeous. However, I love my Caprice! LOL Besides, the caprice wouldn't seem fit for a beach wedding. More for a ballroom. Just my opinion.

                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.sotteroan...5&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 :(

                      Sharon didn't upload for some reason. I wish you could edit on these forums.
