OMG! This is my dress. I have a photo, but the sample was about 4 sizes too small. So, I don’t think I want to share my back fat.

The dress is amazing on though. You could see how tiny my waist is in this dress. I purchased the champagne & black one. It looked a bit more blush against my skin though, which was a complete surprise. I’m very fair with pink undertones to my skin anyway. The black belt really made the dress come together for me. I tried a few black ones on, but the one with the dress is perfect!!!

@MrsGarrityToBe:  I don’t have the pics handy, but it was a beautiful dress. I thought it might have been The One, but in the long run I decided to do something slightly more traditional. Like @cdl088  I also was stunned by how tiny tiny tiny my waist looked in it.  It’s a beautiful dress, but be warned…it was very heavy! Gorgeous, though. I felt like a princess in it.

@tinypaws:  Good point. I didn’t notice the weight because the dresses I’d tried on before were very structured with crazy skirts. Tons of heavy fabric.

Cosette has A LOT of fabric. There are so many layers and so much tulle.

What about this little number? It’s also a maggie. It’s called Corinne.

This one was gorgeous, but I couldn’t walk in it, and I liked the location of the lace on the ballgown better. It’s more random.

My SO family is Catholic & my family is Episcopalian, but we aren’t having a very traditional religious ceremony. I want to get married outside, and no one from the church will marry us ouside of a church; so, there’s that. My colors are going to be blacks, browns & metallics. I’m playing with different patterns to get a really eclectic feel. I plan to use really dark berries in my bouquet that look black to tie in with the dress. Overall though, it’s going to be pretty formal with lots of rich fabrics and opulent decor.

I was surprised when my fashionable yet super conservative 75 year old grandmother loved the black on this dress. So, I got her stamp of approval, and that was good enough for me. In fact, I almost didn’t try this dress on because I figured everyone would think it was too “out there/goth/funeral inspired.” Not the case, as soon as I walked out of the dressing room, everyone just gasped. Those things never seemed to cross anyone’s mind. It’s just a beautiful gown. The people next to us at the salon quit paying attention to their bride for several minutes because they thought it was so gorgeous. Girls were taking turns trying it on after I was done, haha. I noticed none of the other girls would commit to the color, though.

The people over at Maggie Sottero puth this sample palette together which is amazing…

I couldn’t quite try this gown on since I am a plus size and this gown is a size 4.  I absolutely love this gown, but I am terffied to get it and look like a giant cup cake!  This gown is absolutely gorgeous even just in white on white.

@MrsGarrityToBe:  I wish that they could, but apparently not… Most shops do not seem that accomidating really.

@MrsGarrityToBe:  I’m 99 per cent sure this is “the” dress! I don’t have pics on my computer but I did try it on and even though the sample was three sizes too small on me, it still looked awesome — so I can’t even imagine how great the right size will look. I’m a bigger girl (size 16 in regular clothing and 18 in wedding gowns) and it gave me curves in all the right places.

Love, love, LOVE Cosette!

@MrsGarrityToBe:  Definitely black! The white is too average for me. I wanted an all-black dress but they’re really hard to find where I live, so this is perfect for me!

In case you guys are still looking for a picture, this is my dress 🙂  Just as a warning- the skirt is not this big; we had a hoop skirt underneath all the tulle. I am getting married in July, and the skirt is incredibly heavy and hot, so they suggested a hoop skirt, as it will allow for air circulation under the dress. However, when I get mine in (this is the sample, which is, by the way, a size too big- it is an 8, and I am getting a size 6), I will buy a hoop skirt, and we will adjust it so it is closer to my body.  I ordered it in champagne and black (You can see the color difference from the white and ivory dress nearby).  And for reference, it is definitely very champagne- I am very pale, and it also had almost a blush glow, as someone else stated. The only thing that I don’t like is that the color makes it on the difficult side to find accessories, as it really doesn’t go with anything in white, ivory, or silver (like any conventional veil or shoes), and it doesn’t go with clear rhinestone jewelry which seems to be all bridal jewelry ever.  Now don’t get me wrong- it’s worth it because the dress is totally awesome and insanely unique, so I have found wonderful black jewelry, and I will probably have a custom champagne veil made for me and my shoes dyed.

Oh, also, someone asked what type of location people are wearing it to? Well, I had originally thought of this dress for a vineyard we were planning on getting married at  (Villa bellezza in Pepin WI – I highly recommend it if anyone is interested), but we switched the venue, however I think it will work equally as well.  We are getting married at the outside worship area at our church, which is all woods with permanent rustic benches, and a rustic cross out front. Then, down to Turner hall ballroom, which is a large sweeping room with the second floor looking out onto the first floor.  It’s had a fire or two, so it’s almost deconstructed, I would call it? And with excellent architecture and huge windows.

We are doing a Midsummer Night’s dream theme, which is why I love the flowers/vines in the dress to go with it.  It’s also very flowy and dream-like.  I also like the grand skirt for ballroom- I think it should fit quite well 🙂
