I also prefer the button look and don’t think you would be changing that dress too much! It will be totally beautiful!

ive been told by consultants that most maggies cannot be changed from corset to buttons unless that is an available option in the dress description. going from buttons to corset is no problem, however, so i thinks its a lil weird, but thats what ive been told.

I think that unless the designer is the one actually changing the back of the dress for you, you’ll need to order AT LEAST a size bigger to go from a corset to buttons due to that the corset dresses are meant to have lacing as part of the back and therefore there is not enough fabric. So I would look at ordering either one or two sizes bigger and altering it to fit you to make sure there is enough fabric to convert it. Depending on where you get your dress at, this could be a lot of money in alterations.

Good luck!

The Presca Marie was one of my top dresses until I found the dress I actually bought. I was also thinking of getting the ivory over light gold, which was the sample I tried on in the store. I think the color is really beautiful in person! It’s pretty subtle, nothing over the top. I also didn’t love the corset and would have preferred buttons. The bridal shop I was considering ordering from said it would probably be around $500 to alter it to buttons. Here are some pictures (the sample was quite a few sizes too big). Let me know if you want more pictures.

@Breezes71213:  Hi there!  I am actually planning on doing this on my dress.  I have a Maggie Karena Royale.  Once I have pictures I can post, although I won’t be getting my alterations done until February or so. 🙁
