    Well I did it. I went to a bridal shop that specifically works with Maggie Sottero to try the dresses on that I found on the internet. The only way I was walking out of there with a new dress was if it beat my first wedding dress. Well, it did. It's a brand new style from Maggie and wasn't even one of the dresses I saw on the internet. I am absolutely in love with this dress and it looks amazing. It is perfect in every way!!! The one I tried on was a size 12 (I am a size 4) so it was way to big but they clipped it up for me. The dress was also really long, made for girls who are 5'9. Mine will be a little bit shorter. It is in diamond white and cost over $1,000, but is well worth it!! I am so happy that I went to the bridal shop and tried the dresses on. I feel a lot better about this wedding gown than the other. Don't get me wrong, the other dress is gorgeous and looks great on me but I wasn't feeling it any more. This dress is the one for sure!! =)

    Here are the pictures. Don't mind my facial expressions, I wasn't ready for any of the pictures. hehehe

    here is the dress one me

    and on the model
    Reema - by Maggie Sottero

    The dress on the model is in light gold. My dress will be in diamond white which is a light ivory color. I will be having the straps removed (they look good, but they are really itchy and I like the dress better strapless). The back is corset, so it will match by bridesmaids dresses a little better but I will still stand out as the bride. =) Oh and the veil comes with the dress (optional), but I will be wearing it a little differently. The bridal consultant showed me different ways to wear the veil. I am going to have the veil bustled. I have to wait until January for my actual dress to arrive but that's okay. The bridal shop keeps the dress for me in a fire proof safe and they steam/press/etc. the dress and place it in a body form and a protective garment bag safe for flying. So I am really happy with not only my dress but the bridal shop as well.

    Let me know what you think! Also, I am selling my other wedding dress. I already posted a thread about it. Thanks!!

      Well, I thought you looked pretty in your other dress, but this dress is fantastic and you look beautiful in it! The veil is pretty too - how did she tell you to wear it differently?
      Congratulations on your new dress!

          What a beautiful dress! I love how form fitting it is and then poofs out towards the bottom! It looks great on you!

                  it's a beautiful dress.

                  i noticed you had the maggie 'reese' dress in the background. i am debating that dress for myself.

                    Pretty dress! I'd love to see how to wear the veil differently, and to see your veil bustled

                      Yes! I tried that one on as well. But, it was very similar to my Alfred Angelo wedding dress so I didn't go with that. It's a gorgeous dress though!
