- Wedding: October 2009
I posted my story 2 weeks ago about my horrible defective wedding gown. We are still working to get our money back. I’ll keep you updated about that story…
Now, I have to find a dress before my October 24 wedding. I am in love with Maggie Sottero’s Karena gown. After calling many bridal shops, I found someone who has the dress for me to try on. Here is the problem, if I order the gown, I won’t get it until the first week in October. That means…no bridal portraits or I might get lucky and have it altered in time. The dress is a size 6 but I am a petite girl and I need a size 2. Do you think this shop may let me buy it off the rack? If so, would it be hard to make the dress into a size 2? I dont’ want to take the chance and alter it if it may look bad. Another solution: I am going to a Maggie Sottero trunk show in NY, since I’ll be there for my FH’s cousin’s wedding. Do they let you buy the dresses off the rack? Will there be more than one Karena gown there or do they typically only bring one dress to trunk shows? (I’ve never been to a trunk show) Sorry for the long email ladies but I’m freaking out! I waited months and months for a defective gown and now I am struggling to find one. Please help ladies!
