I am wearing a 3-hoop skirt bc i felt the same way.  If you look at the maggiesottero website at the realbride pics alot of the girls didnt wear anything underneath and I knew I had too!  The dress is too heavy to just let it hang.  I got my hoop from ebay for $30. 

 

The bottom looks funny bc its too big still and im pushed up against the bed.

My daughter wore a full petticoat with her Ambrosia gown. The smaller ones just weren’t full enough- the dress just lies flat especially in the back. I also noticed this on the Maggie website of real brides. The super full ones were just a bit much- it made the dress look like a gown from Gone with the Wind! The in between size was just perfect. The train laid perfectly and all the detail on the front of the dress was visible.

Oh how I love Ambrosia! She’s at the top of my dream dress list! My only concern is that it’s so heavy!

You girls look beautiful in Ambrosia!!

@ILuvDance17:  I’m wearing mine on the beach this Saturday.  It may be heavy, but I don’t think I’ll even feel it that day!!

Ladies – you mention full vs half full petticoats … please elighten me as to what the difference is! Is full a 6 hoops skirt and half full a 3 or 4 hoop?

I’m in the midst of scouring eBay, but I don’t know what size to get!

Thanks In Advance 😀

This is my dream dress!  Its my front runner at the moment!   Any thoughts/comments on the weight of the dress?  I’ve heard its a little heavy…  🙁

Hi Ladies,

I am also a Maggie bride, I have chosen Ambrosia, i tried on over 30 dresses and as soon as I put Ambrosia on I refused to try any others on. I am from Englandm but this dress seems to be popular in the states, I have struggled finding any discussions like these ones on UK websites.

 

I also want the full effect with skirt as I feel it looks a little limp without it, but everyonoes taste is different. I am also torn between a cathedral veil and a fingertip one. Even though cathedral has been my dream I am slightly leaning towards a fingertip now
