I have my own style, so I don’t pay much attention to the accessories the models wearing with the gowns. From my experience, everything looks a lot different in real life than it does on the model.

I am wearing Allure and the models are all styled horribly so I think I will go with my own style. I am very picky too so I think it would be best if I just stick to my own vision.

haha, charmedlife! i’m the same way. My dress is from David’s Bridal and I hate the way they styled it on the model in the photos! I will Def. not be copying that. If they had done a good job with her, I might have a different opinion.

I generally think the Maggie models look a bit dated – like they should be on Dynasty or something Laughing I usually think they look at lot prettier on real brides. I love looking up one dress style, and seeing all the different ways brides have chosen to wear it. 

They wouldn’t influence my accessory choice much at all – but then, one of the things that made me know my dress was the one was that I started accessorizing it in my head – you know, like when you buy a new piece of clothing and you can instantly match it with a dozen things you already own Wink

I’m in LOVE with the Rhianna Royale and the model wearing it is totally not styled the way I would go myself. If anything, the models turn me off of some of the dresses.

I’m getting “Jenna” and I actually don’t like how it looks on the Maggie website! It was the picture of bees on WB that made me want to try on the dress!

I am wearing Gatsby

 

I’m definitely not doing my hair like that- I’m not the big hair type…

My earrings are drop pearls – which I think is what is in the picture….

but I am also wearing a triple strand pearl necklace with a brooch clasp.

I think real brides look so much better in Maggie Dresses, I don’t think the photographs or models do the dresses justice at all.. the best styled designer I think is Watters & WTOO I love their veils we have the collection from Sara Gabriel that looks like theirs.

I’m styling mine myself.. below is a picture of me in it with the belt i chose, because i hate the belt they pair with it.  I will also be adding 1 shoulder strap to make it a bit more modern..

Yeah jewelry wise I will be doing something similar but I also think my dress accessories are a no brainer because I have such an elaborate belt. I can say this, I am NOT doing my hair like that…!

@miss narwhal:  haha I dont blame you on the hair.. mine will be down and have one side braided and twisted up.. kinda retro hollywood glam-y.. They do the hair on the models in whatever way will show off the dress, whereas brides should do their hair in whichever way will show them off!! 🙂
