    I finally went dress shopping this past weekend. I went to 3 different stores and in the end I have a couple of favs but haven’t found the one yet. Think mostly because there are a couple of Maggie Sottero’s that I really want to try on but the problem is 2 of the store that I went to that carry Maggies mostly have strapless ones when I really don’t want a strapless.
    So first I went to David’s Bridal, I was overall it was good but since this was my first time trying on dress I had nothing else to compare it to. They had every dress I wanted to try on there which was a plus but the consultant really just went thru the motions and pulled the 7 or so dress. No input on what to try on or clipping the straps so they were not so big. The second place, the consultants was great, it was a small store and only had one of the Maggies that I wanted to try on but she had me try on 8 or so dresses and would listen to what I liked and didn’t like and try to find something that I was looking for. The last place started off rocky but ended up being great. They had a bigger section of Maggies. As of right now 5 and 8 are my favs.

      I love #2 and #9. They all look great on you though. This one is going to be a tough choice!

          # 7 is my favorite by far.

          I like #7 over #8 cause it defines the twins and your waist a little more.

              Hey, I recognize most of those stores... I am from NJ too. Davids Bridal East Bridal and Astyla Bridal... as you see I am dress shopping as well.

              They all are gorgeous, but have you tried anything completely strapless

                  You look great in them all but my vote is dress #3. It's slimming, sexy but classy, and IMO would look awesome on a beach.

                    Oh jeez! They are all beautiful! If I had to choose, I'd say #2! However, I prefer the simple, classic, timeless look. #'s 5 & 8 are gorgeous - and don't think you could wrong with either!!! :-) Good luck deciding!

                      This is tough because they all have great features about them, but #3 is the one that made me say "wow", so that's my vote!
