    The dress isn’t my style, but that isn’t important. My main concern is that it is A LOT of dress, and doesn’t flare until it hits the hips. It may not look great on a shorter bride. I would think 5’6” with heels could pull it off, but it could drown someone out otherwise. But, if that doesn’t apply, ignore!

    It’s a beautiful very elegant dress imho — even though it wouldn’t be the dress I’d pick out for me personally. There IS a lot of dress, but hey tis your WEDDING DAY so tis perfectly alright to have a real wedding dress! That’s what I keep telling myself when I have some second thoughts on the dress (I had envisioned a certain type of dress but ended up with one that has a lot more skirt then I had in mind really! But I love the dress and who gives that it has quite a bit of skirt — tis my wedding day and I get to choose what kind of dress I wear!:))!

    What are your second thoughts on the dress if I may ask? That might make it a little easier on us to take away your doubts! 🙂

    Couple of things I found when trying on dresses like this:

    1. The brooch thing the hip will bring attention to that area.  So if your like me with a larger butt/hip it may be something to shy away from.
    2. It is a lot of dress.  If you are short/petite it may not work well.
    3. How would it be bustled and how heavy is it.  Think about your comfort while dancing etc.  Even if they can put a bustle in, what if the bustle breaks beacuse the train is so heavy.

    I really like the top bodice part and all of the MS corsets are really comfortable.

    Dresses can look completely different on a person – so as soon as you can post a picture please do!

    I tried on a few Maggie gowns, and they were incredibly heavy, albeit very lovely.  I also thought the beading on the gowns was not well done or not quite the quality I was expecting.

    I really like the front of the dress but I’m not crazy about the back — just too much going on back there for my style.  Maybe a seamstress can do something to alter it into something you like better?  Have you thought about removing the train or have a permanent bustle back there?  Good luck!!

    I think it really depends on your shape and the style of your wedding.  I can see this dress looking AMAZING at a certian wedding, but a little out of place at another… What specifically is causing you to have second thoughts?

    I think it’s lovely. One of my favorite dresses is also a Maggie Sottero and I think they are so beautifully made!
