Hi, ladies! I’ve been reading your posts for about 2 months, and I’m excited to join in the conversation.
When my fiance and I got engaged the first time, I found a Maggie Sottero dress that I fell head over satin-heels for. That was 4 years ago and the dress is no longer in production.
(Allison, by Maggie Sottero; originally $679 per the boutique I talked to in 2010)
Through my journey of trying on dresses and reading your posts (the pictures have been so helpful!), I’ve determined the dress I wanted 4 years ago is truly the dress I’m meant for. This is where I’m stuck.
Going with a custom designer means I can get the dress in a different fabric (I’m not a huge fan of satin), but I’m worried about trading off the quality of the gown.
Any advice or recommendations are greatly appreciated! If you have Etsy recommendations/warnings, experience with ordering replica Maggies, ordering a completely different fabric (I’m toying with the idea of champagne-colored organza), I welcome it all.
Thank you for your time, ladies!
