I am a new member on the weddingbee site so hopefully this works. I got engaged on April 28th, 2012 and my wedding date is May 25th, 2013. I have been searching in magazine and online for my dress for the last couple of months. I have fallen in love with the Maggie Sottero Divina dress. I was speaking with a bridal store who said there is no one in Ontario that carries this dress yet 🙁
Does anyone know if this is actually true or not?

Check out this thread – I think a Bee tried the dress on in Canada, but I could be wrong

Welcome! I’m pretty sure that bridal store is lying. There are tons of the stores in Ontario that carry Maggie dresses. I would definitely do some research and call around.

Thanks a lot. I know that the fall collection is just coming in so wasn’t sure if I should believe him.

The bridal salon I’m working with has said that the sample Divina gown will arrive from Maggie Sottero in September and so it should be available to fit in many stores from September onward. You can also have the salon order the Divina gown in your size before trying the sample but only if you are absolutely sure that it will be your wedding dress. If you’re still undecided, then you can make contact with a trusted salon in your area and have them call you once the sample dress arrives. Once you place the order with the salon it should take about three months to be made by the designer and shipped to your local bridal store.

I’ve heard that it won’t be in until the fall, I’m also hoping to try it on when it gets here:) If anyone here finds it near Ottawa I’d love to know!!:)

@MinouBear: I know Bridals by Al Mor which I think is about an hour from Ottawa had it in a trunk show and most likely still has it. You should try them.
