    Anyone heard of, or buy one of her dresses? I just stumbled across her web site, and she has some STUNNERS! According to her bio, she was head designer for Maggie Sottero for 10 yrs...you can definitely see it in her style.

    Just thought I'd throw her out there. I'm probably far behind the times and just hadn't heard of her before now.

      I tried a couple of her dresses and loved them. They were a little too ballgown for me at the time (last May) but she's since had a couple of collections that have more variety in them. Very well constructed gowns with lots of lovely details.

      If this one had been around when I was looking at dresses, it would have been a serious contender!

          Girl, you know you need to quit! haha...three months til your wedding. If you're anything like me, even looking is going to cause problems.

          Sooo...I put money down on a Maggie recently, BUT....this Tolli is a serious contender now. I may even get both if I can find a good enough deal.

          It's speaking to me. It COMES IN MY COLORS for crap's sake. The thing is Ivory with metallic gold threading....I think she loves me. Can you hear her? "Savaaaaaaaannah....I love you....and I NEED a home...."

              Y'all are not even going to believe it, but I just bought that Tolli gown today! I found it on Ebay, from a bridal shop trying to get rid of it's 2007 gowns!! I'll take that as a sign dammit. IN ivory and gold....I am not even joking.

              Maybe this is a sign. lol..I didn't hear any angels singing and haven't even tried the thing on, but oh well...sign enough for me.

                Savannah you have no idea how much FI HATES that I order or book something (dress, venue, flowers, photographer, etc.) but then continue to look at stuff, just tempting and tormenting myself with past decisions. I can't help it

                  My dress is a Sophia Tolli - Vivienne. I LOVE IT! The picture of the dress on her website doesn't do it justice...it's so washed out and you can't see any of the detail. I can't wait until it comes in and I can go for my first fitting!!

                  MarieSam, I'm also a four dress bride. LOL. No worries. But...I paid full price for three of my dresses - I only got one off ebay - but is was 34 dollars!! Oh well...

                    OK, I'm not even gonna trip with myself anymore after seeing you FOUR FREAKIN DRESS ladies! hahahaaha!! I can only IMAGINE what Billy would say and the decible level in which he would say it. I'm already gonna be keeping enough secrets throughout this process...where on earth would I stash 2 more dresses? He's pretty unobservant, but I dunno...lol.

                    The dress was $199 w. $30 for the shipping/insurance! It retails for $1275! The cheapest I've found it (and I'm still looking just to make myself even happier with the deal I got) is $925 from a discount distributor. I'm STILL grinning so wide my cheeks hurt. I mean, what are the odds I would stumble across that dress in MY colors and MY size so fast? It's crazy. The lady who was doing the auction for the shop was like "I'm so glad this worked out for you...what luck!" and she ain't lyin. woo hooo!!

                    Now, I'm off to walk around the park so I can be sure the damn thing fits. lol
