I have fallen and I have fallen hard for this new Maggie Sottero gown
My local salon tells me it won’t come in until July. My wedding is in March and if I end up loving it, I would have to order right away as it will take 6 months to come in. Will that be enough time after receiving it to do alterations? Has anyone else fallen in love with a gown that wasn’t being released for months? What happened in your situation? How did you deal with the wait before trying it on?

I haven’t, but that dress is gorgeous! I think it sounds like the timing should be okay, in theory. 🙂

YES!! I fell for Justin Alexander 2013 Preview 8625 & 8630. No one had the samples, so I would have had to blind order them and pray I liked them when they came in. SUCH a bummer.

If you love it, wait until July. They can rush order it. It’ll be worth it to have the dress of your dreams!

Yep that same exact dress!!! I want to scream because my wedding is in October so there is no way for me to have it!! I can’t stop looking at it!

That dress is absolutely STUNNING!!! And July shouldn’t be a problem at all for a March wedding..that’ll give you 8 months for it to come in and get alterations…that’s plenty of time! 🙂

@SoCoBlue: I LOVE this dress!!! Did your local bridal salon have any idea how much it would cost? Gosh, this is just gorgeous!! It reminds me a lot of the Lazaro 3050 except in pink, of course!

I fell in love with my dress before it came to any store!
I went to try it on after it was in, loved it just as much on me and bought it 🙂

YES! Amelie (from Claire Pettibone) is beyond perfect for me but no way I could get it in time. Oh well, I still love my dress…

@txrodeo: Your rite it does remind me of that Lazaro dress…I am sure it will be less expensive though.

@SoCoBlue: PP are right. Go to the bridal salon and try on the Lazaro. They are very very similiar. Who knows? You may not like it! Are you in Boston or near a big city? They tend to get things faster in the city as opposed to salons in the burbs.
I fell in love with Amsale Elle the second it hit the runway. I stalked the store for months waiting for it to come in and knew we would have to rush order it. Tried it on once and ordered it without anyone seeing it on me since I had dreamed about it for so long. Well it came in and I didn’t love it anymore. So I went from a couture Amsale to off the rack from David’s Bridal!

You will have plenty of time!!! thats like 8-9 months before your wedding. Its the recommended time for ordering your dress!

@txrodeo: The salon closest to me said that without the belt it would be running somewhere around $1575 or so and with the belt it’s around $1700. More than I want to pay, but I’m so in love!
