Since being on WB I have seen a HUGE Maggie Sottero following as well as a HUGE Pronovias following. I totally missed those two designers. I haven’t even heard of Maggie Sottero – am I completely losing my mind for not looking into these designers?
Are any of you waring Rivini? If so, show off your gown PLEASE
My Rivini gown doesn’t arrive until July – YES JULY!!!!

I’m not a Rivini bride but I have admired their gowns in magazines, I’d love to see photos of real brides in them.
In regards to your first question, part of the mass appeal for both Maggie Sottero and Pronovias, in addition to them both making beautiful dresses, is affordability. Both are usually within the $2000 range and are carried in a large number of stores, making them easily available to many potential brides. I’ve noticed higher end designers are carried in much fewer boutiques .

I am a Rivini bride 🙂
I have pics of me in the sample at home, but I’m wearing the “Thirteen” which is this one:
The model pic does not do the dress justice AT ALL.. its five different layers of italian lace, with a little beaded belt.. absolute LOVE…
Can’t wait till she comes in.. not sure when, but when it does I will have to take a trip to NYC to pick her up! Prob sometime this summer. Same boat as you!

I fell in L-O-V-E with the Rivini “Lismora” dress. High price tag, but totally worth it. I only have the model pic from online since my dress won’t arrive until July 🙁

When I was getting married, I could not find any Rivini brides!
It is nice to see people supporting such a great designer.
Here is my dress…

I just got my dress! It’s the Rivini Lismora. I can’t believe I spent $6000 on a dress, but I just absolutely loved it. I didn’t want to take it off!

I am a Rivini Bride as well! My dress comes in this week and I can’t wait to try it on. I ordered the Rivini Ely dress at a trunk show last October. I knew I wanted a Rivini dress as soon as I tried one on- they fit my body perfectly!
I have to say though, I really wish I had seen/tried on the Lismora dress though- I’m in LOVE with it.
Anyway, here’s a pic. of my dress when I tried on the sample, snapped secretly on an iPhone since no pictures were allowed.

I too am a VERY lucky Rivini bride. I recently purchased the Lismora dress for my June 2011 wedding! My experience was quite unique as I got to meet the current designer for the ‘rivini’ label while getting fitted for my dress!! No pics of me in the dress just yet – but I can relate to the other brides who are patiently waiting to see the dress again ….. 8 months is a long time to wait! I didn’t want to take it off!
We will all look stunning in our dresses! Rivini is amazing (and Canadian YEAH!)
