So I finally purchased my Maggie Sottero dress! Had a bit of a dilemma with my wedding being February 2012 and the soonest they could order the dress was May. I am a size 4 and had to settle with a size 12 in Ivory from the bridal store (only one they had)… I was going to attempt to purchase a used one online in white but I was scared that I would get ripped off. I consulted with an alterations place and they assured me that the dress can be altered down to fit me perfectly. I am in love with this dress!!! I always envisioned myself in a white dress, but the Ivory isn’t far off from white. Need advice…Should I keep the Ivory or search for a white one? Any Maggie Sottero brides have pictures of the Ivory dress on the beach…Just wondering what it will look like…Will post pics…Please keep in mind that it still needs to be altered 🙂

that looks great on you! love the BLING detail. I honestly wouldn’t have guessed that the dress was 3x too big! talented seamstresses can work magic. If this is YOUR dress, i would stop looking and focus on the other details to pull off a fabulous wedding. Congrats!

Ohhhh my gosh – I LOVE it! Maggie’s ivory is so close to white I wouldn’t bother with it! And they look BEAUTIFUL at the beach. This one in particular will look perfect!

I think Ivory goes great!
I have found some brands dresses are really like a soft Ivory which is very easily just seen as “white”

I would stop looking and go with the one you have! It looks amazing and a good seamstress will have no problem altering this dress down to your size.
Congrats! You look beautiful in the dress and will go great with the beach!
