    Good Luck today, Courtney. I love the Maggie dress! I can't wait to see which one you choose.

      oohh - I'm super pumped to see which dress you picked! how exiciting!

      out of curiosity which stores did you go to? I'm guessing the Bridal Centre is where the Maggie dress is, but what is the one that wouldn't tell you who designed the dress?

          Well, the manager was kind of a jerk about it. She went on and on about how important "true" service was to the place and then when I asked the designer of the dress, she told me "Oh no, it's the owner's policy not to give the designers". Umm ok. I was a bit irked. It's true, the service there was the best of all of the places I've been, but if you're worried that the bride will end up getting the dress somewhere else once she knows the designer (as she made it sound, that was the case), then why don't you trust your own service??! Your store's service should be good enough for the bride to feel confident to go back there!

          Yes, the Maggie is from the Bridal Centre - thanks for the suggestion. It's a little tucked away, but with GPS, it was almost no problem! lol. The service there was ok. I had Carma, and she was nice, but not great.

          The other store was Beautiful Bride; the one place I've been returning to the entire process. I meet Simone there every time, and she's AMAZING. She really is. I almost feel bad not buying a dress from her. I think she's told me the designer before, because I remember looking up a dress I found there online.

          So, yes - I did get the Maggie dress. I went to that place first, and didn't even bother going to the second place. I LOVE it. I honestly had no idea it was a Maggie when I tried it on, I just didn't want to base any decisions on designers - I went with an open mind. I love Maggie dresses though, so I'm not surprised.

          I tried the dress on in blush, and it was pretty - but I'm not a "pink" person. I got it in diamond white - which is pretty much just white (very, very slightly off-white).

          For some stupid reason, we didn't bring a camera at all. But, when it comes in, we'll do a full-on photoshoot right there in the salon! lol

          Woohoo for buying dresses!!

                  Umm, I think you need to go back to that store TODAY and make them let you take pics in it. C'Mon, you've got nothing else to do, right?

                    I've heard that stores don't want to give out the designer info cuz they don't want you to use the information to find the dress elsewhere possibly for less money! It's another tactic of the bridal industry!
