7 bridal salons later, and about 50 dresses later, I finally found my dress! It is the Maggie Sottero "Kendall." I don't like the pics I took so I'll just post the model pic. It really is like they say- when you know, you KNOW. Until today, the one Maggie dress that I found during my first visit was the top contender, with another Maggie a top second. I actually went to the salon today to try and find the top dress so I could try it sgain. I told the consultant I did not exactly remember the dress and she said "well if you don't remember the dress, it wasn't the one." I love satin dresses, but the ones I've tried we're too plain for my taste. When I put the dress on I just felt fabulous. I'm not a crier but I came close to it. And when she extended the train I was blown away. I could feel and see myself taking pictures in the dress and getting married in it. I want to pair it with a sash/belt for some bling to spice it up. I put on a black sash with some crystal stuff, and it made the dress look so awesome. So yay!!!! My birthday month came through for me again! Oh, and the best part, this gown was totally below my budget- so I think now I can splurge on the shoes!!! Christian Loubatin perhaps?!?!!!?!! ;-p

  • YAY !!!!






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Mine is Sottero and Midgley, different brand but same company I think.  I love the vibe they all have-- sexy but very tasteful.  Pinkcow I know I already said your dress is gorgeous, but it is GORGEOUS!  I'm normally not a fan of satin but it looks so perfect on that dress.

    Thanks, JC! Yea, I think it is overall the same company. I think it's like Essence of Australia and Stella York, they are all the same company. I realized that at all the bridal salons that carried Maggie, I always inadvertently liked her dresses the best. So I knew that my dress would end up being a Maggie - or Sottero and Midgeley too, actually. I had a love/hate thing with Satin. There was one Harry Roth Satin dress that I loved, but it was too plain for my taste. Another one I hated - I think the material was too thin. I think I loved this one because of the ruched details.

    Aaaaaah so exciting! @JCbride2015 which one is yours if you don't mind sharing? I hesitated a long time between the Kendall and the Tristan but loved the lace detail on the Tristan too much to overlook it. But initially, they are both the same style. And indeed, Maggie and Sottero and Midgley dresses are GORGEOUS and so affordable am I right?

    ETA: What is wrong with my jambalaya fingers today.
