I agree I love the bustle on top and asked my seamstress to do the same. She is going to do it with a jewel button so that it blends perfectly with the bodice. Regarding bra- I had cups put in and it makes a huge difference. Also she took half to the stay (boning) out that comes up right to the center of the boob, it gave it a pointy look. I got to try it on this weekend and it looks so much better without it and fits to my body better! I am not wearing a necklace just earrings and I might wear a bracelet also but I am a little concerned that it might catch on the fabric so I will have to see if I can find one that works. I am not wearing a veil (it would catch on the top of the dress all night I am sure.) I am just having flowers put in my hair. Mine is also the gold color at the top!

I am wearing a bra but only due to self consciousness it certainly isn’t needed especially since having the bust taken in. It’s all on personal choice, I also wanted something for when we take the dress off afterwards, it seems nice to have bridal underwear looking nice πŸ™‚

As for jewellery I won’t be wearing anything, I don’t think a necklace is needed with such a beautiful corset and I would worry my bracelet would catch in the tulle, I would love to wear one though! I’m just a worrier! X

Love the idea of the  jewel button Atlas! I have a veil and I am a little worried it will catch but I have designed my hair so that I can scrap it half way through if needed ha! πŸ™‚ 

 

cant wait to wear my dress in 7 and a half weeks!!

Hi ladies,

I came across this thread because I am totally in love with this dress!

I recently tried on the Esme Marie dress (part of the new Savannah collection I think?)

http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=3MS745MC

It’s looks the same as the original Esme (so much so I actually thought they were the same dress!) the only difference is the bottom skirt is organza! So feels a lot more expensive and won’t get stuck on your beading. Although the waistline appears to be lower in the photo, I remember it did have a natural waistline when. I tried it on. 

I think I will end up getting the Esme Marie, I’m also wondering about accessories and veil length for this dress as it is very sparkly!

eizenpower:  Sorry completely misread your post as youve said you have already tried it on! I’m struggling to find a stockist of Esme Marie – where did you try yours on? Thanks!

eizenpower:  OMG! I have been looking everywhere for someone who has tried the esme Marie. I had already pit a deposit on a different dress but am seriously considering getting Esme Marie instead. see post http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-said-yes-to-the-dress-but-2/#axzz36tg0edSk

I tried on esme and loved the bodice but the tulle was way too much for my 5 ft frame. is the organza skirt still super full like esme? I would love to see pictures of esme Marie on you if you have it!!! πŸ™‚

nicoleylo I had a similar experience when I first tried on the Esme. I am also 5’0 and worried that it overwhelmed me. I have not tried on this Esme Marie, but I did go with the Esme. I had her take out the layer of muslin that was underneath puffing it out and had it shortened and once I did that the dress laid much more flat and I no longer felt like it was consuming me. Good luck with your search!

kerry.m.webb:  Hi Kerry, I’m actually from Syd, Australia so tried it on at Abbey Bridal. They only stock Maggie Sottero there and stock quite a few pieces from the new collection. I’m surprised they even have it in Australia! I’m sure you shouldn’t have any issues tracking one down in the US though (I’m assuming most wedding bees are from the US?) hope you find one, it’s stunning! Xx

nicoleylo:  i’m also petite 5’2 and skinny and found the Esme Marie was perfect for my frame, the shop assistant described it more like an A-line shape so not super poofy! i like how dramatic this dress looks too, and it has the train at the back as well. I guess if you are worried about the bottom overwhelming your frame you could wear a smaller hoop skirt? I can’t remember if there is much difference with the beading (bodice) but I remember thinking it looked much better on the Esme Marie. I tried the Esme on at a different shop thinking it was the same dress so I was really confused as to why it felt and looked different! Definnately prefer the Esme Marie over the Esme because it looks and feels more expensive especially because of the organza. The shop had a strict no photo policy so unfortunately I dont have any photos πŸ™

Hi everyone!!! I’ve been following this thread for a while and thought i would share my esme πŸ™‚ I’m getting married on sept 5 2014 and have done some alterations to make it my own!  I took out all the layers of crinoline so it makes it a lot less poufy. I also removed the glittery belt and got the seamstress to pull the whole bodice up so it doesn’t flare out so much at the hips.  Im also removing the train.. And leaving just a slight one..

Let me know what you guys think!! πŸ™‚

 

whats one everyone’s opinion on hair?

 

and my seamstress said I couldn’t take out the boob boning bc she said my dress would be falling down.  anyone have any advice? And was it just half of the boning that you guys removed?

I had the boning removed that came up the center of the boob and had cups put in, I left the boning at the waste. If the seamstress makes the dress fit properly around then it should not be falling down. The reason that i did it was because it made it fit to my body better and it was suggested to me by the seamstress but if yours doenst think it will work right on you I would go with what she says. 

Also the dress looks stunning on you!!! Yay dress twins!

Wow!!  You look gorgeous!!!  I can’t wait to get my dress in!  Shouldn’t be too long now πŸ™‚

 

I’m debating what to do for hair.  I look better with my hair down, but for dancing I want it up so it’s out of the way.  Good thing my hair stylist is my home slice and will be attending the wedding πŸ˜€

Hi all,

Finally received our photos and wanted to share a few with you all. I LOVED my dress from day one and it made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. The tulle does get stuck in the beading but this was really not a big issue and I think the soft flowing tulle is worth a little stick every now and then.
