I second that thought.  I think this is my gown but I’d like to see it on a real person before ordering.  Even the Maggie trunk show didn’t have it!

I wouldn’t regret it!  It’s the dress I keep going back to as well and I would order it if my wedding was anytime soon. I got to try Demetrios B162 and it is so similar and looked great.  My main concern with Decadence is that the skirt will be too ballgown (I’m 5’1″ so I really need an aline) or the fabric will be too shiny.  What fabric did you order yours in?  A local salon has ordered Decadence for their store and now I’m just waiting for them to get it in so I can try it but it’s been months.

I tried Decadence at a trunk show yesterday, it was a size very small – about a size 4 on the street size – and in Taffeta. First of all, why have such a small size at a trunk show? but anyway, I was able to get it on my hips and check it out. Its terrible in Taffeta, be thankful you ordered in Satin. The pickups don’t sit nice in the Taffeta, the fabric is too stiff and does not lay well. The back hangs funny in Taffeta, looks very strange big lump on butt in the back. Also, the flowers on the back are hidden inside of the pick-ups – very strange. And its not because its wrinkled or not steamed, seriously the Taffeta fabric is weird on the dress. The bodice is very nice, beading looks good. And front is perfect. Definitely order in Satin.

They wouldn’t let us take pix – otherwise I would post them! I think that if you can get the dress steamed nicely with the satin, i think the back will look very nice. Decadence was my favorite of all the new maggies and I tried on about 6 of them. It is a pretty dress and I don’t think you will regret it at all – it has so many nice flower embellishments. You will want to work with the alterations to make sure the flowers are visible on the back but not sure exactly how it will be with the satin. I tried on “Priscilla” in satin and the pickups were SO lovely (my 2nd Fav of the maggies!) and I think Decadence skirt will look similar then and thus will be very very lovely. If I hadn’t found such a similar dress at Demetrios (Sposabella 4277) I probably would have ordered Decadence in Satin myself. Don’t worry, I am certain you are going to love it!!

Yes I did get the Demetrios dress- here is some pix ! πŸ™‚ I still wonder if the train is boring (needs roses like Decadence?) But the fabric is lovely!

No problem πŸ™‚ Here they are…the dress was two sizes big for me so would have looked a lot better if it was the right size.  Also the sales lady couldn’t be bothered to fluff all the layers out so you can’t see the shape that well, but hopefully these pics help a bit πŸ™‚ x
