Call Maggie Sorrento’s  number and talk to them directly. There may be something they can do to help. Have a link ready to a story or copy of an email along with receipts ready at hand to email them if necessary. 

Sorry this happened, I can’t even imagine how upsetting this is.

@MrsEmployed:  I am so so so so SOOOOO sorry to hear this. I can’t imagine how you must be feeling. If the building wasn’t destroyed are they SURE it was ruined, can it not be cleaned somewhere if it was just smoke and water? I’d be asking questions like that because I’d be wanting my dress that I loved. The only thing I can think is you’re going to have to go to dress shops and find something in stock that you like, or BEG AND BEG AND BEG and plead until someone tells you they can make it happen for you with the dress you want.

What Maggie Sottero dress was it? If you’re open to a preowned dress or sample, maybe you can find the same or a similar one. 

ETA: I bought my Maggie Sottero as a sample and it’s great condition!

@MrsEmployed:  I second the other PPs about calling them direct and also looking for pre owned or sample sizes! I am so so so sorry this happened to you! Also there are some stores that sell just samples…you can walk out of the store with your dress the day you buy it

@MrsEmployed:  omg that is devastating! Is the dress shop compensating you at all for your loss? Which dress was it, the bees can help you look at pre-owned dresses perhaps?

@futuremrsj2014:  +1

OP I am so so sorry.  Yes, what dress/size?  I can help you look for one online if you’d like.  I bought my Sottero and Midgley preowned online and it’s like new and in perfect condition. Don’t give up hope!

I was able to contact Hayley Paige designer herself on linkedin. You could try that ! Or preowned as other bees suggested !

I got my brand new Maggie Sottero sample on preownedweddingdress.com, put in her name and the name of the dress in the search bar, there may be results

Firstly, sorry about that really bad news. That sucks!!

I dont know if its an option for you or not. But have a look at no name bridal gowns online. A cousin of mine had a dress disaster 6 weeks before her wedding and ordered off an online place (made in China) it arrived 4 weeks later. It was beautifully made and the fabric was good, and was only $350(Australian) 

Otherwise, you could try second hand dresses? Once again, not sure if that is an option or you or not. But given the time issue and you may just find ‘your’ dress:)

 

GOOD LUCK!!

@MrsEmployed:  So sorry you have to deal with this added stress.  I would scour the pre-owned boards, in Toronto we have The Brides Project where they sell samples and pre-owned dresses crazy cheap for charity.  

It’s sample sale season – I’m sure you can find a great dress.

@MrsEmployed:  I found a couple on preownedweddingdresses.com, but based on your last update, they may not be the right size.  Here are the links just in case:
