    So, earlier this week I posted about the Maggie Sottero dress I ordered and recieved. The dress was a letdown and the color was not what I wanted at all. I contacted the shop on Tuesday and they said that they’re willing to do a dress exchange to another Sottero dress.

     

    I chose the 'Jenna' for my dinner reception dress that I'll change into after the ceremony. I can't wait until it comes in! =]

     

    This is the final dress and with it being white, I don't think color will be an issue:

    This was the original dress I ordered and returned:

    (The color shows a darker red that I wanted, but it was actually a bright, lighter red)

      Yea, Chelsea!!

       

      I'm glad they are able to work with you on getting a new gown for your reception....nothing worse that being stuck with something you don't want and can't use!  HOORAY for your salon for probably going above and beyond their own policies to make the bride happy!  LOVE it when that happens.....!

       

      And personally, I think the JENNA gown is so much more of a WOW! gown than the one in red, despite it's vibrant red color -- I think everything happens for a reason, and here is another shining example of that!  Can't wait to see pics of you in your beautiful JENNA gown!

        Let me tell you that you won't be disappointed in your decision!  I too am a Maggie bride and my dress is the Jenna...it came in last month after 6 months of eager anticipation and it is totally gorgeous!  I absolutely LOVE it!!   Congrats on your pick!

            They are both great dresses! I am sorry to hear the red dress wasn't what you thought it was going to be though.

                  Both are gorgeous dresses! However, I'd have to say I like the first Chiffon silk dress best.

                   

                  If you're having a hard time choosing, perhaps wear the first one for the rehearsal dinner (after all, the dinner is supposed to be the kick start to the wedding's events) and the second dress as the reception dress because it looks more bridal. They are both beautiful choices tho! Congrats on the wedding! =]

                      They're both cute. However, my favorite is the first one. Good luck!!
