Reception Dress is in & I'm so disappointed!

Recommended Posts

So, I ordered my reception dress a little over a month ago and I just received it today.

Anyway, The dress itself is beautiful, but the color is completely wrong and far from what the picture shows. The color is this worn out bright red, when the picture clearly shows a satiny darker red (one of my theme colors). I'm going to have to look for another dinner reception dress. I wanted to change dresses after the ceremony and first dances; I'll most likely stick with white this time to prevent this.



The dress I ordered was the Maggie Sottero: Amara Royale

(Here's the pic, but it looks very different in person)

I still love Maggie's dresses, I just wish the color was what I wanted.

Oh thats such a disappointment. I am sure you have been waiting for a while for it to come in. I would think because it is a rather well known company they would let you return it. Especally if its an issue because it doesnt look like it should in the photo. Thats not a size issue, thats a "Company Takes Inaccurate Photos".


I bet you can work with them on this issue. Maybe at least you could get them to allow a trade for another dress if their are any you like.

Thanks for the support, ladies. I will be trying to return it tomorrow, so I guess I'll see how it goes then.


Since my wedding date was moved, it's not a big issue with time and I have plenty of it to search for another dress. I was just really excited about getting the dress and it was just a let down once I did receive it. That's a good suggestion. I'll definitely look through other Maggie Sottero dresses to see whether I'm interested in an exchange if they're not willing to do a refund.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
