    Hello Ladies!

    I have two isues. I tried on both of these Maggie Sottero Dresses but, I can't decide on which one. The both look lovely on me. The store I tried them on won't let you take pictures so, I don't have any to post with me in them. But if you could help me find a replica with good reviews that would be great.Thanks for your help ladies!!!!

      I don't know anything about finding a replica. I love the first one, but the second one is beautiful too. Personally, I would pick #1.

      Good luck!

        I just ordered my replica maggie sottero dress (Lavina) from an ebay seller (but didn't go through ebay, just did it via email and paypal). I gave them a $60 deposit and they just finished the dress this past week. They sent me proof pictures at which time I had the option to change anything or not even buy it at all. Of course I went through with it because it looks amazing! Once it get it (should be by the end of the week) I'll update with quality as this was one of my concerns. I didn't want something that felt as thin and cheap as a davids bridal dress but now i'm more focused on the LOOK so i'm preparing myself for the fact that it will NOT be a maggie dress with regards to quality (but what can you expect for $180!!!). The seller is gianinarbridal (gianinarbridal@hotmail.com). After I paid the deposit it took right at a month to get the proof pictures.

        Anyway, here is the original:

        And here's my replica. The beading isn't quite as "dark" but I don't mind at all. You can't expect it to be 100%. But it's certainly close enough that I was jumping around the house like a 2 year old!

          hi there fellow ATL bride! I love #2, the silhouette is amazing. I also bought a maggie dress. What store did you go to? I bought mine at New Natalie's Bridal and it was waayy less than at other atlanta stores (like $300 less)! I don't think you should go for a replica though, imo :)

            Hi Carolina24,

            Yeah, I went to New Natalie's Bridal this past friday. They have the Amara Lee (1st one) for 648.00 but the try-on dress wasn't in my size so I had to visualize what it might look like on me. The Phillipa (2nd one) was going for 1,186.00. It was lovely. very elegant. I know Natalie’s is having a trunk show for Maggie Sottero Dresses in January from the 8th to the 10th. So I guess I will hold on till then to see what deals they will have. I just found out that Bride Beautiful off on Roswell Rd is having a Trunk Show this month 11th thru 13th. I hope will have enough money by then if they have dresses half off that would be great. Thanks for your advice!

              Your dress looks amazing so far. I can't wait to see it when its totally finished and they have sent it to you. Please post a follow up photo once you get it. I will look into gianiarbridal.
              Thanks for posting!

                      definately go to the trunk show. I would wait until the show is at New Natalies b/c I went to Bride Beautiful and that's where the dress was $300 more. I got mine at the trunk show and it was 750, but it regularly sells for 1100!! so it's definately worth the wait.
