    I have the exact same Issue! Mine is Maggie Sottero – Kristin. 

    I have seen one other bee post a pic of her trying it on, but in her pic the dress has a shoulder strap which my dress doesn’t, so it looks like two different dresses. 

     

    Strange eh?

    I’ve only seen 1 bride even post about my dress (and that was like this week haha)

    My dress is Reflections by Jordan M282

    @NEbride2Be:  I remember responding to you when you first posted your dress on the Bee.  I’m a Watters bride as well!  (Odette)

    I remember one girl on the Bee posted a picture of herself trying on the Odette, but I don’t know if she chose it or not.

    I actually feel like I tried on a lot of dresses that many other Bees have not.  I remember looking up some of the dresses on here to see if I could get pictures of other real brides in them (out of curiosity and for a little comparison) … And I barely found any of them!

    I also haven’t seen any real brides wearing my dress on any blogs and/or wedding websites.  

    I actually do prefer this, though.  While it might be nice to see some other girls wearing and loving the same dress, I kind of like knowing that I’ve chosen something special and unique.  I doubt any of our friends or family will ever have seen a dress like it, and that makes me really excited and happy!

    Me too! Mine is the Carol Hannah Mulberry and I’ve only found one other real bride on the Internet who has it on in pics. This pic is from Style Me Pretty:

    I’ve only seen 2 people actually try on my dress and I searched for a few days. Neither one bought it and no stores had it so I could actually try it on… I ordered it online and I guess I’ll have to be the first one ever to actually own it haha :) I have Maggie Sottero Lorelei and I am in love with it. I would prefer to have a dress that doesn’t seem to be popular so I can feel special!

    I would be that there are quite a few other brides wearing your dress, but who havent gotten it/tried it on yet because it came out such a relatively short time ago. If I find anything Ill post it for you though!

    I’m wearing Watters Austin, and I don’t really mind that a ton of other brides have worn the same dress. I actually discovered it by seeing other real brides in the dress here on the boards and I thought that they all looked so lovely that I had to try it on!

    I havent seen a bride in a while with my dress. I can’t say I care what’s “popular” or not bc IRL Ive never seen 2 people I know in the same dress. Things may be popular to us bc we are all constantly on wedding websites. Post pics of your dress!

    I actually saw the dress I fell in love with on another bee here first and she told me the designer and dress, I tried it on and yup order her :)  I am wearing Maggie Sottero Sabelle and I think besides the orginal bee I saw the dress on and maybe only one other bees on here so far I know that was considering it.

    @mrs-j-to-be:  I think I tried it on but the layers near the waist were not flattering on me. I love it though!

    @gelaine22:  I’m actually pretty nervous about that! The sample was a bit flat, and of course my actual dress is even worse since it was fresh out of the box when I tried it on, so it never registered as an issue to me until I went to my first fitting and the seamstress made a comment about “fluffing it out”. Fingers crossed I still love it though, because there’s no turning back now! :)
