Specifically, I’m interested in this Sottero- Midgley dress:
I love it, and I love the color as it appears in this photograph, but after seeing a photo of “Tenille” in Oceana where it looked absolutely SEAFOAM GREEN… I’m kind of wary. (Meanwhile, Nouvel and Nouvel Lynette look super gray. I can’t tell if they all just interpret “oceana” differently or the pictures are just off.) The nearest store that has it in stock in ANY color is over 5 hours away. I know that Maggie dresses fit me well and that this silhouette would look good on me, but without seeing the color I’m a bit afraid to order it.
(And for anyone who’s tried it on… is the tulle/taffetta scratchy at all? I know I’ve tried on some that were. And if you happen to know… is the lace “tail” on the back of the dress connected to the tulle or just hanging there? I might want to lop it off, haha.)
Thank you so much!

maybe you could order a swatch? I ordered my dress through the store near nordstrom rack in clackamus and i was able to order extra fabric, maybe they could help you. mine is a maggie.

vistagirl, was it Bridal Exclusives? I’m planning on heading over there anyway to try on a few other dresses… I don’t know if they generally get swatches for dresses they don’t have in, but maybe! I’ll definitely ask.

Yes! I couldn’t think of the name. They were pretty good and they honored a coupon I havd from charlottes for $100 off! I am not having my alterations doner there though, my wedding planner reccomended someone amazing and it is waay cheaper. PM me if you want more details!

i have not seen it, but i’ve gotta say that if that dress were seafoam green (my FAVORITE color), it might just be my favorite dress ever (just not for my wedding). whatever the color, it’s very pretty!

That dress is beautiful!
I can answer your tulle question. I have purchased a S&M dress that has an all tulle skirt and they have a satiny under skirt that is touching your skin and so you don’t feel the tulle at all! Mine has a taffeta bodice also and it is very smooth and comfortable. The only thing that might be uncomfortable is the beading on the bodice if it hits under your arms.
