@jeye7161: Thank you! I haven’t got to go back & try on the Brianna but if/when I do I definately want to try the petticoat/bustle the side thing on it, because I was looking for an extremely unique dress, but just couldn’t find one so when I lifted that up, I fell in love with that look! My FH’s mouth is going to drop no matter what I’m in, I’m not a ball gown type girl, but what about getting a poofier petty coat that rises higher up than a mermaid, OR just sewing more crinaline to make it poofier close to the hips to give it more of a ballgown look…. When I first tried on the Brianna, it was too flat for me but I loved the way the waist up was, then the first time I tried on Adorae I didn’t like it, but then I left, went back & tried it on with the petticoat, that made a world of change for me, maybe you should try that too! I’m sure your FH will be speachless either way!

GIRLS – what accessories, esp. veils (if any) are you planning on wearing with your maggie dress?  i can’t decide!  i love everything – nothing seems like too much…but i also don’t want it to be all about the accessories and not me!

 

love these earrings

Don’t doubt yourself! Usually, a bride’s first instinct is her best bet. I’ve worked in bridal fashion and have sold gowns now for some time- don’t psych yourself out too much about it! trust your heart. If need be, put them both on again and see which one you can picture yourself getting married in more.. they are both very pretty and either I’m sure will be stunning. Hope this helps!

 

P.S. its kinda like his proposal- go with your gut instinct! ๐Ÿ™‚

@duffy101510: i have to agree that the taffetta fabric just doesn’t let air in- too suffocating! the silky feel of the other is soo nice

I’m wearing a bird cage with a flower/feather hair piece & I’m so indecisive about jewelry its not even funny, but I have plenty of time!

 

Does anyone have a picture of the Adorae bustled in the back?

@Miss Converse:  i LOVE the birdcage look…i was actually thinking of doing a birdcage/feather fascinator too, but I also love pictures of long flowy veils

yet again it was another difficult decision

@jeye7161: If you Bustle the side, it would make it shorter. Also if you added more crinaline to make it poofier it would raise it a little. I’m 5’8, I have no idea of this shortness you people talk about! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m wearing converse though, so my dress will have to be made shorter than a bride who were to wear heals!

I bought the Maggie Sottero Brianna. I absolutely love her!!!  It’s fits very very well and accentuates all the right curves:)
