I think a lot of bees have that dress.  I just think brides are either a big ball gown type of gal or not – you sound like the latter!

That’s such a popular dress! It’s gorgeous, but I’m with you on this one – definitely not my style. Some girls pull it off beautifully, though!

i was super excited about trying on “maggie sottero-hampton” then I went and tried on a dress that was about the same “fullness” as it and I totally felt EXACTLY like a “1600 dollar cupcake!” ahhhh and I felt 30 lbs lighter after I took the thing off…

I ended up with this dress…. πŸ™‚ I’m in love.


Goood luck with your dress search!!!

I hear you- for petite brides a ball gown can really overwhelm your frame. :o) I know I didn’t feel comfortable in them, but I’m only 5 feet tall!

Yep. There are a lot of bees on here who have the Sabelle. I’m not one but it is a lovely dress just sounds like way to much for you. Good luck on your next try.

I think the Sabelle dress is gorgeous but I like you couldnt really pull it off. My wedding is a little too informal to pull off a large dress like that. Keep looking tho, I had a lot of fun dress shopping =)
