My Maggie Sottero Dress

Recommended Posts

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

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!

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

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
