    Jlaw86:  do you have a pic in the MS? I love the Alcanar with a belt so I voted for that but it would be nice if you had a pic in the other dress.

    Jlaw86:  Do you remember the color of the Noreen – Sottero & Midgley dress you tried on?  I know it comes in two colors, one is White/Pewter Accent and the other is Ivory/Pewter Accent.  I’ve called every bridal shop in my state who carries MS and SM dresses and none of them have this dress!  I’m tempted to order it to see what it looks like, but am curious if the Ivory/Pewter accent is really white?  I have very fair skin so a whiter/lighter dress wouldn’t work with my skin tone. Anyway, just curious what your experience with it was.  Thanks 🙂

    aklaverkamp88:  hi there! I actually bought the Noreen in ivory/pewter and it’s not white, it’s very obviously off white and the pewter gives the lace a little gold tint it’s gorgeous! I posted a pic! Granted I am pretty tan so it makes the dress look bright but it’s very ivory.

    misro2003:  Thank you so much for sharing! You look stunning in that dress 🙂 If you don’t mind, I have another question.  I’ve tried on a few dresses with a similar fit and remember many of them being quite heavy.  Is this dress heavy too?  Also, are you wearing a crinoline?  Thanks again for the pictures!

    Oh thank you!! Yes, it was heavy haha. BUT, she also said it was that heavy because it was a size 12 and I ended up ordering a 6 which would have way less fabric, but I am getting SOME of the crinolin taken out because I wanted it as more of an A-line fit versus a ball gown. But I have to say, even though it was heavy, it was SUPER comfortable, after I had it on for a few minutes I honestly didnt even notice, and it has a corset inside the dress that helps support and hold it up!

    Oh, and the reason it’s “hanging” the way it is on me, and not looking more like the ball gown style is because she stuffed all the crinoline between my legs so I could get an idea of what it looks like haha, so thats kind of why its hanging a little closer to my body. But if I let all that out, it poofed it out more at the bottom than what i looks like in the pictures, like the dress on the manequin behind me in the second picture.

    aklaverkamp88:  the pictures of Noreen are STUNNING. I am in California attempting to find a store where I can try it on and haven’t had much luck. Any suggestions?

    I like the neckline better on the Maggie but I like the Alcanar better overall.

    mamp6:  I actually never tried on this dress, but I really regret it.  I went with Sottero Midgley’s Maddalena instead.  First dress fitting is today.  I hope I feel better about it after the fitting 🙁  Five weeks until the wedding and I’m still unsure about my dress.  Such an awful feeling!

     

    I hope you can find the Noreen and are able to try it on!  Good luck 🙂
