Who is....

the designer of your dress?  I'm going to Mariella's on Saturday to look at dresses for the first time and I want to print out some pictures of dresses I like, but I keep finding myself going back to the same websites.

    Since this is my first time dress shopping I'm kind of clueless about prices.  That being said, I'm not looking for anything too crazy expensive (ideally under $1500 seeing as how I will never wear it again).  I'm looking for designers in that price range.  I absolutely LOVE a sottero and midgley dress that I haven't seen in person yet.  Is that in my price range??

    My Maggie Sottero was just over $1000 (my dress budget was the same as yours).  I would imagine that Sottero and Midgley would be about the same  :)

    My Maggie Sottero dress was about $800, but $1000 when I added the cleaning and preservation package, and whatever alterations are going to be ($200 is my guess-timate).  It is a design that is a few years old, not new to the market, but still lovely :)

    My dress is Watters bridal, and it is definitely in this range.  They had quite a few that I really loved.  Prices started around $1000, although I chose one that was closer to $1800 because I fell in love.  They have a lot of beautiful dresses.

    Maggie Sottero.. super affordable as well. I paid only $615 for my dress and it was almost $200 cheaper than a similar dress I tried on at Davids Bridal and much better quality. I got my Maggie gown at a trunk show at Something Blue Bridal in Southbury. Great little shop!
