I’m ordering the anniston!! as soon as i decide on my color, im thinking about getting the ivory over ivory, since i’ll be having an evening wedding. I’ve been in love with this dress since i saw it online last fall, but i just found a store with it in for me to try it on last month.

I too am an Anniston bride! I am from New Zealand and we only have one supplier of Maggie Sottero over here and they were charging over 2000 USD for it! So I went online and got it in the States for a more resonable price.

 

I just love it! I was looking for somthing a little different and it was just so flattering on. I have ordered it in Ivory over Ivory and I am picking it up from the San Fran in August. Literally cant wait! I too want to see some real brides in this dress but don’t know where to look. I have looked at Maggie Brides on her website but they are not showing the dress enough for my liking!

There is actually a photo of a bride wearing it on Wedding Bee – she is trying to sell it – not sure if you have seen this post; http://classifieds.weddingbee.com/topic/brand-new-maggie-sottero-anniston

I am definately going to wear a Veil – possibly fingertip length. I don’t like them too long or too short on me but will have to see what suits the dress.

I might just wear a pair of bling earrings (I have short hair) and leave the necklace. Pearls sound lovely! I would wear them if I had any in the family but checked with my mum and we don’t. I was even prepard to take one pearl off a family set to make a necklace but looks like this isn’t an option. That’s ok though, I would only want to wear them if they meant somthing if you know what I mean.

I am actually borowwing my shoes from my SIL, they are just your basic white 3 inch shoes. Figured it would keep costs down and I can put these into my bling earrings!

I will keep looking for Anniston photos and will be sure to keep you in the loop if I see any! I see you are getting married in August – not long to go! I am December bride which is Summer for us so that will be nice.

Oh, and I was originally looking for a dress that had one strap (don’t ask me why – I just wanted somthing a little different and one strrap appealed) so I MIGHT look at adding one tulle strap to this dress. But I don’t want to distract from the dress so will have to see what it looks like. By rights I should have ordered a petite dress (I am just over 5ft 4in and not having big heels) but ordered the regular size so that I will have some tulle left should I want to add a strap…

Post your pics if you can when you pick it up! I would love that!

Great ideas girls!! I think I’m going with big earrings also and just a bracelet. I have medium length hair, and I going to wear it in a loose low bun. My dress wont be here until august but I’ll put up some pics then, & since my wedding isnt until sept 2011 I havent looked at shoes yet, but i’m 5’8 so i want only want 2″ heels.

So my latest thought was I might wear a birdcage veil – what do you think goes better with our dress?

What veils (if any) are you wearing KatieGreene and butterflylover??
