hey ladies!

I know this is the Esme thread, but I recently tried on the Esme Marie from maggie’s fall 2014 collection. It’s the same dress basically except instead of a tulle skirt it is organza. I still felt it was too full of a skirt on my frame so I decided in the end to go with a different dress, but it really is a stunning dress!

nicoleylo:  wow! beautiful!!! 

I did think it would be slimmer with the organza bottom… its looks identical in fullness

Hi all,

 

I’ve been following this thread for ages as I’ve gotten the Esme with the gold threading for my wedding dress. I love my Esme however it does need amended at the bust and the waist. I also have a small tattoo on my shoulder and was thinking of getting straps made with the excess tulle to cover this, does anyone who has had their dress amemded think this would work or would it look silly?

I’m also having a hard time getting shoes I like as I don’t want anything to clash with the gold threading!

  <br /><br />These are my shoes ๐Ÿ˜€  They are tall, but there’s a plat form which evens it out and makes them an average height.  They are comfortable, and even have rubber treads.  I plan to change into gold sparkly flats for the reception.  

I got a call this weekend that our bridesmaids dresses are in.  Just waiting on my Esme to arrive now.  I stopped by the shop where I purchased my dress and there was someone filling in for Maggie (how cute is it that I bougt my Maggie from a Maggie?!).  The lady filling in wasn’t friendly or helpful, and told me my dress wouldn’t be shipped until September.  I’m hoping she got the date wrong!   The dress is a priority gown, and I thought it would be shipped in 12 weeks, which puts us at shipment for this week.  How long did it take for your dresses to come in?

missnikkio – I’m sure you can mock up the dress with some tulle, to see how the straps would look before commiting!

Those are funky shoes! I need shoes about that height as I’m 5ft.

I was thinking even if I got straps put on and didn’t like them I could always remove them, I don’t think they would ruin the dress xx

Thoughts on the dress: Personally I think that this dress looks better in person then it does in Photographs. I love this dress and think that it has a wow factor but if I were to do it all over again I don’t think I would pick it. I got talked into it because of its power- it really is a stunning dress, but it overrode my vision of what I wanted. The alterations on this dress were a bit of a nightmare, its expensive and the bustle turned out to be really difficult to deal with. My husband says that he couldn’t picture me in anything else and our photographer just kept raving about how it was her favorite dress of the season so even if I have a bit of dress regret everyone else loves this dress. Hope you ladies enjoy the photos!!

Before trying it on, the esme was my front runner but it really did nothing for my shape! I am flat chested and have a kind of boxy upper body. Turns out the trumpet style accentuates my waist more and what little curves I have a whole lot better. This dress is stunning though for the right bride (possibly with a fuller chest)

I’m new to shopping for wedding dresses but this is going to be the first dress I’ll try on (already have the appointment booked and everything).  Can anyone give me an idea of how much this dress actually COSTS?

Hi ladies, so yesterday was my wedding day! I got to wear my beautiful Esome at last! It was everything i expected and more! Someone on here asked about shoes, the best advice I can give is DO NOT HAVE GLITTER! Haha I had glittery shoes and they kept getting caught in the dress whenever it touched i.e when sitting etc. I also have holes in my tulle from other girls heels! Do not let anyone stand near your dress for photos haha. It was so brilliant everyone loved the dress and the first thing I heard when I entered the room was a mans voice saying ‘WOW!!’ It was an instant boost and I felt ready to face my husband to be ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck everyone! Here’s some photos of my dress (guest photos not pro) xx
