the beading makes me think it’s a pnina tornai. but it could also be a maggie sottero.

@simly.lovely:  I don’t think it is a Maggie – it reminds me of my dress (Madison Marie) but with more beading, and the top is also like Gwyneth as well but different material. I also think it could be a Pnina. If you like a Maggie dress though they will probably be 1/5th the price of a Pnina so a lot more budget friendly!!

@simly.lovely:  You could definitely do that! Someplace like MJ Trim or check trim supply places if there are some near you (I hear NY is great for that if you are near there). You can get an applique for the hip part as well or a brooch. Myself I added 5 dozen swarovski crystals to the existing Madison Marie applique.

I do believe its a Pnina, I found it on Kleinfelds website. Its just labeled as a ‘sweetheart mermaid gown in satin’. I also found some beautiful close up photos of the bride you posted wearing it. Its a gorgeous dress!

@simly.lovely:  The Madison Marie already has appliques with pearls, lace, and crystals on the bust, front hip and on the back on each side of the lacing. I bought 5 dozen extra individual crystals – rounds and navettes that matched the size/style of the ones on there. Then I just hand-sewed each one on going with the pattern but filling it out a bit more…so I had an outline to work with and just filling in the spots that had less stones. 

One thing I was going to mention is if you do put your own trim on or get a dress with trim along the top, just pay attention to how far it goes around and if it is under your arms. If it does go under the arms (Madison Marie one does not) it can be quite scratchy/irritating so check the scratchiness of any trim you are considering is a good tip 🙂
