    Ok, so I know I'm new to this forum and you guys probably don't know who I am, but I am REALLY excited and I had to share with someone!!

    After months of searching I had found my DREAM dress (a Maggie of course) BUT with me trying to do EVERYTHING "green" (as much as I can at least) I had made the decision that I wanted to by a 'pre-owned' wedding gown (reuse and save $$). I figure I will only wear it once, and it's only been WORN once..so why not.

    I looked at MANY different websites and searched for about two months and then I found IT!! I emailed the girl and we corresponded for about a month. After nailing all the details down (and finding out that we had the EXACT same measurements) I decided to go ahead and buy the dress.

    She lived about 19000 km away from me, but only 7km away from one of my bridesmaids, who went on my behalf (god bless her) and looked at the dress many times for me and eventually bought it for me. It is now sitting in her closet waiting for me to come down and get it!! I am SOOO excited!

    I have afew pictures of the dress that are from the original owner on HER wedding day that I've posted!! It is the Maggie Sottero JD2003, and I got it at a STEAL of a price!!

    The last photo keeps turning out kinda wonky for me, but I still like it.
    I hope the pictures work....I've never posted pictures before!!

              Thanks guys!! I am VERY excited to see it! I picked this dress b/c of the material it is made of..it is just perfect for a DW..it's made of jersey and lace..its a nice light lace, the dress is so comfortable! I wanted something I could wear ALL day so it couldn't be heavy and I didn't want to sweat in it (who does).
