Hey, so I bought the Mikaella 1406 (mermaid one 2nd pic) over a year ago. Only went to one store and figured it was the best one for me. Casually looked online since but still felt pretty good until a friend on FB posted pics from a wedding with the bride wearing the Maggie Sottero Kendra. I REALLY like this one. Unfortunately my wedding is in Jan so I prob can’t order it now anyways 🙁 I’m gonna call the shop tmrw but i’m not getting my hopes up.
I have never tried it on but it looks soo pretty. It is closer to to what I would like, although i’m not super sure about the back.
What do you guys think? Has this situation ever happened to anyone else?

Your dress is absolutely stunning on you. I think it’s just part of the process that everyone goes through regret at one time or another.

I love your dress, and it looks great on you!! Plus, do you really want to wear the same dress as someone who you have a mutual friend of lol.

I honestly like your dress better.. AND it’s probably 50 lbs less than the Maggie! It looks like there’s a down blanket bunched in the back of the Maggie..

I love your Mikaella – that was almost my wedding dress! Looks beautiful on you!

So I called the dress store and they have it in stock and they could get it in store by the first week of December, so I am going to try it on tmrw and see what I think. Hopefully I won’t like it 😛
I could always wear this one as the ceremony dress and the Mikaella as the reception dress since it’s lighter. I’m just so torn because I originally wanted a satin ruched gown that was fit and flare, but really more of a flare into a ballgown rather than minimal flare/slightly mermaid look. But I didn’t even know that this dress existed until I saw wedding pics recently (don’t know the person, only an aquaintance of the person who attended). I also remember seeing a couple months back a similar dress on a bride and thinking “Oh wow that is much closer to what I was thinking originally…”
I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for your guys’s responses and compliments. I still do love the Mikaella, but I feel that if I don’t at least try this one on I will prob obsess forever LOL.

So I went to the store and tried it on, IT IS SO GORGEOUS! I love it. I tried on the Mikaella after, and it just didn’t seem as special/formal or something. So I tried the Kendra on again and I just knew. It’s lovely.
I had to get it today because it is cutting it pretty close date-wise. Maybe I can wear the Mikaella 1406 for the reception? What do you guys think?
I can always resell both after the wedding to save money. I think it was the right thing to do because this dress would have haunted me 🙂
Oh and FYI, my store in New West BC Canada said that this dress is going to be discontinued pretty soon!

@jeweltutu: I did the same thing and I didn’t regret it. When I finally put on the right dress, I knew immediately. Congrats!
