Brand new to WeddingBee, and curious if there are any other MAGGIE SOTTERO BRONWYN brides out there? 🙂 Mine just came in but I haven’t gone yet to try it on in “my size” before alterations..
I am also pregnant (we planned on having 2 before the wedding, so when we found out we booked our date! LOL… due with baby #2 on 4/20/2014, wedding is 8/30/2014)… so I will try it on and suck in a little BUT.. won’t REALLY know the true fit til this baby comes out!
I will have 4 months to alter it, and I plan on making it tighter around the hips/knees to make it appear more form fitting/trumpet-like. When I first tried it on, we pinned it like this and I LOVED IT…
I am also considering NOT using the keyhole, but rather creating either cap sleeves or off the shoulder sleeves.. or very slim lace sleeves to reveal more skin on my back…..
Any suggestions? Comments? Other brides altering theirs? I am DYING to see REAL brides in this gown, because the stock pics just DO NOT DO it justice……..
Thanks everyone! 🙂

I just purchased my Bronwyn today, and I am in absolute love with it! I went in looking for a dress with cap sleeves and a keyhole, so I am keeping the keyhole as it, I find it very elegant but not over the top! I haven’t decided whether or not i’m doing the belt, but that would be the only thing I am doing differently =)

i am also thinking of doing off the shoulder with my bronwyn! My bridal consultant suggested it. And I agree with taking it in around the hips and knees! Love that we’re on the same page 🙂 I posted pictures on the thread the foreverlovex linked!

Thank you everyone!
I am going to check out that thread now!
And yes I did get ivory with the sort of champagne underlay…. I need to find the picture I took when she pinned it all up.. I love the sexiness of the off the shoulder, and it also created almost half-open back. LOVE.
Wanted more of a trumpet look… seems like they have another in the collection that woulda been PERFECT but, couldnt’ find any in my area (Carolina)
