All Maggie Sottero brides post here

Recommended Posts

Everyone's dresses are so beautiful! I go tomorrow for my first fitting! I'm not so excited for this one. I know the dress does not fit. I'll be more excited for the next fitting after they chop it up. I can't wait to see what it will actually look like on me finished!

I had sewn in cups and I am so happy that I did. I did not have to worry about fiddling with a bra once I slipped my dress on and I also did not have to worry about it showing. Congrats!

I'm kinda worried that the sewn in doesn't do a good job of keeping the girls up. Anyone have problems with that?

I had cups sewn into my grad dress. I wasn't a big fan. Sure, I didn't need a bra, but they just move weird and they don't really look natural. I think the bigger your breasts the more forgiving these cups are. I'm a 34A so I don't think I'll be going that route again. As for keeping them up, I don't really have anything to keep up so I can't answer that question haha, sorry. How about getting them sewn in and then if you don't like them you take them off?

I'll be wearing my DREAM dress: Maggie Sottero, Mia!


I lucked out. I randomly went out, not planning to try on dresses, because my mother is frugal. So we had gone to five stores, not one, or two, but FIVE different stores to get prices. Seriously mom, enough was enough (but not I'm grateful we did!) Finally, the last store, always happens, having tried on ZERO dresses at prior stores, I walked into a retirement sale (a store going out of business) where a lady asked me what I was looking for & as I replied that I really wasn't, she continued asking about my style (which I didn't see anything else I liked) & said "there is ONE dress & ONE dress only, but no stores in this area carry this designer" she asked me who & told me her story, that she knew Maggie & worked at one of her fashion shows (or something like that) in 2010 & had quite a few dresses. My mom & I didn't believe her. We accused her of having fakes, the lady sort of got mad, but she understood where we were coming from after she knew I had done my research! She went & search & found that they had THE dress in MY size! I tried it on, I had to! I saw the price tag of $1,700, which was fine with me anyway, it was my dream dress, I just needed mommy dearest to see this was my dress! As I was giving my mom the eye, the lady said "and don't forget 50% off because we're closing & let me tell you, you can't get discounts on her dresses unless the store is going out of business!" It was like $700. Seriously, I HAD to get it.

 

I haven't had any alterations done, which the wedding is 5 months away. I NEED to get on that. & since the store is closed I need to find someone who does it, with a dress from outside, which is hard to do. & since I moved in with my FI, I don't know where the list of people are that the store gave to me (damnit!)

I did have the cups sewn into my Maggie sottero Alexa dress. I'm happy with the cups, but so upset about alterations my dress is dirty and has a couple minor stains, one looks like lipstick, which I never wear. A tiny hole in the chiffon train and they missed a pleat in the top. Now for some reason it dents wierd at my hips, even though they did not alter that part. I'm discussed with the shop I went to. Very rude people every time i ask a question. I knew I should have ordered the smaller size, but they were very insistent that I needed to order a 4. I'm convinced now it was for the alteration money. I took my dress home afraid something might happen to it. I'm supposed to take it back to be steamed, so I plan on going back when I know the manager will be there. I'm so disappointed. If I'm spending $1300, in your store you should treat me and my purchase with some respect. The dress should have been perfect. It's a brand new dress!

I ordered my "Adara" dress at the end of January. They told me to expect it at the end of July. I'm really excited. I'm not much of a crier, generally... but I actually started to tear up befor eI even got out of the dressing room to show my "group." It was pretty telling that that was my dress.

 

I haven't seen my dress in like 5 months (I held off on ordering too early...) and I have zero dress remorse. I still love my dress.

    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!
