I knew that background in your picture looked familiar!!  I have been to that store in Raleigh.  I am from Cary - so I have also been in their sister store at MacGregor.  Heard ALOT of bad things about the owner there - been in the store a couple of times and got a major attitude from her.  I didn't even bother trying anything on... she charges $20 just to try on a dresses!  It's too bad because they carry Maggie Sottero dresses - but she tells you they are "all mixed in" so she won't pull them.  She takes the labels out of the dresses and you cannot take any pictures in there.  So, I guess just on principal, I won't be shopping in there!

@ Jewels93  It's a Wtoo dress by Watters & Watters called Maria :)

 

@ Michelle-2  What part of Raleigh are you in??  I'm actually in Rocky Mount but I claim Raleigh because no one EVER knows where Rocky Mount is lol!!  Not that I can blame them, there's not much of anything here!! 

 

I got my dress at the Bridal Boutique of Raleigh which is on Hilsborough St.  It's a really small shop but they have a sister store in Cary called The Bridal Gallery at MacGregor Village that is HUGE!  They carry a bunch of designer gowns so if you haven't tried either of the stores maybe you'll have better luck there?

Michelle,

 

Yes the owner was in the Cary store when I was there and was totally AWFUL to me when I went. I called ahead to make an appointment and they told me I didn't need to make one so I just showed up.  There was only one other bride trying on dresses and then another girl on the opposite of the store trying on prom dresses but they wouldn't put me in the bridal dressing rooms, they shoved me in the back room where all the discount dresses were and I had to pull my own dresses and my FMIL had to help me into them!....they acted like I was bothering them by being there!  There were plenty of employees so that shouldn't have been an issue.  I brought a few style numbers of Maggie's that I wanted to try on and they did pull one for me, but the other was at their sister store which is why I ended up going there at all (so glad I did).  The staff at the Raleigh store was super nice and when I told them how awful the other store treated me they said they get complaints all the time!!  I wasn't going to say anything though because I have a friend who got her dress at the Cary store and they were really great to her. 

 

On a side note I can't believe they would charge $20 just to try on dresses!  That must be a new policy because they didn't charge me when I went....but that's AWFUL!

110.jpgTHIS IS ME WITH MY DEAR MUM ON OUR WEDDING DAY.

My dress was super comfotable light easy to pack i literaly rolled the bottom up and folded it in half and laid it in the case.

It was a Provonois named desert i added the bling to the bust line.

It was different and i felt wonderful which is all that matters at the end of the day

I  can honestly say putting on my dress and feeling confident was a fabulous feeling.I didnt get a good photo of me at the wedding shop but always looked through these pages and whooped and wooed at all the fabulous dresses so wanted to finaly post my wedding dress picture xx

This is so pretty.  I wouldn't remove the tulle though.  It looks great puffy.  These dresses makes me want to buy another one. lol!

Lots of gorgeous dresses!

 

I posted a picture of my dress about 8 months ago, but it was on the model.  Yesterday I finally was able to try it on again, and got pictures!

I still very much love the dress, but I'm quite disappointed by the whole dress shopping experience. Maybe I have just watch too many "Say yes to the dress", but I was expecting better service. Back when I first bought it the lady was ok, but not a very warm personality. Plus, she had really bad breath.rolleyes.gif

 

When they called to say the dress was ready I wanted to make an appointment, but she said just show up whenever you want, no need for an appointment unless it's for your fitting (which won't be until winter). So I show up there Saturday and the lady is like "Did you tell us you were coming?" I was like, hum, I tried, and was told it was no. The sales lady who had helped me was busy with another bride, so she just went to the back, got my dress, and gave it to me to put on by myself. Luckily it's a fairly simple dress with just a zipper. Not once while I had it on did anybody come and see me. I just felt very ignored. It's like, "Well we already have your money so why bother paying any attention to you now?"

 

Bpink and Michelle, I'm sorry you had even worse service than I did!

My dress came in Labour day weekend but this is the first time I've been able to go in and try it on.  I'm so excited that it fits great, although it needs a serious hemming, looking to take it to ankle length, and even debating using the extra fabric as a train.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
