    No one is  going to care what label your gown is except you! They will be much more blown away by how the gown actually looks, fits and how you feel in it! I say go with the one that looks and feels better.

    I think that a local designer’s dress is going to be more original and actually would be greater than S&M…which is a VERY popular brand…that a girl in every city wears…hell, I’m not that into dresses and I actually know the names of all the soterro dresses becasue I see them so much.

    If the dress is gorgeous and you like it…what’s the hold up?

    All that matters is that you love the dress.

    I agree, labels don’t matter! If you love the dress and it makes you feel beautiful, that is all that you could ask from your wedding dress! And, it makes your dress even more special and unique! I think it NOT being a big label is a major plus! And if people ask, you could say it’s an exclusive/private designer gown if you don’t want to say it’s local.

    I think I would actually be *more* interested in a dress that was not by one of the designers everyone wears. Instead of having a dress that you’ve seen 100 times on other brides online, you’ll have one that you’ve never seen on anyone but yourself.

    And if it’s under your budget, even better! It’s not as if all of your wedding guests are going to ask you who designed your dress, so why spend more on a well-known name if you really love this dress?

    I can relate.  It’s tough to let go of that “designer ideal”.  Go try on other S&M gowns and see how they compare to how you felt in the store’s private design.

     No one is going to care about the label on the dress except you, and there are soooooo many gowns out there, most people except maybe other brides who have been going dress crazy too will even know what’s what.  I have never once been to a wedding or looked a pictures and wondered who made the dress or how much it cost.  (Well, i mean i wondered who made it when I was shopping of course if I saw something I liked, but other than that – no)  I know S&M is not cheap or anything like that, but in the world of designer wedding gowns, is it even condsidered deisnger with the likes of Vera, or Panina, etc

    Go with the one she made!  It sounds like you really love it.  Nobody will care about the “brand.”

    I don’t think many people outside of the wedding world even know the “Sottero & Midgley” label, it’s not like Oscar de la Renta.

    Wear a great gown you love, don’t be a snob.

    Not one person aside from yourself will know what designer your gown is. I don’t think anyone asks at someone’s wedding, oh what designer is that? Unless someone has gotten married, no one knows wedding dress designers outside of Vera Wang. So definitely go with the dress that you love. It will be so much more unique and you likely won’t find a dress twin.

    When people ask you tell them the actually designers name (the lady from the boutique).  Then if they say they have never heard of it you can tell them it’s super exclusive, which it is!  🙂

    Do you have a pic?  I’d love to see it!
