Hi ladies! Did some searching online, but couldn’t quite find what I was looking for. I am so in love with Maggie Sottero’s dresses, but like many of us I am on a strict budget. I’m trying to decide if it is worth going somewhere to try them on, because if I can’t afford it it’s not going anywhere near my body :).
So I’m wondering, what price range are her dreses in? I’m currently looking at $1,000 set aside for the dress, but would be willing to go up to $1,500. I should add that this is TOTAL cost including alterations. Do I absolutely need alterations? Could I take a dress to a seamstress to get alterations done?

You can scroll below to find all of the Maggie Sottero gowns that we have in our store as samples. Maggie Sottero retail prices range from $750.00 to $1750.00. The average price is around $1,100. Dresses are listed in order by the name of the dress.
Depnding on the dress it is likely you will need alterations. Yes, you go to a seamstress for alterations. You do not need to have them done at the bridal shop

If you can’t afford the in-house alterations don’t do them. Take them to someone outside who has done alterations on wedding dresses before. My best friend had her alterations done in-house which cost her around $700 for hemming and a bustle…and her dress only costs $900+. She consulted a seamstress outside, who quoted her $300.

I love Maggie Sottero dresses! Mine is Maggie Sottero Winstyn. I got it at a relatively small boutique in the Orlando, Fl area and paid $1249, which was just a tad over my budget of $1200 but I LOVED it, so I couldn’t say no for $49! My cousin’s dress was a Maggie too and hers was $1100. Both of these costs are before alterations. My dress just arrived last Friday, so I don’t know how much alterations will be yet. But definitely go for it! My second favorite Maggie was only $999. Go for it! Let us know how it goes!

My Maggie Sottero dress was just under $1,900 (including tax). However, alterations were around $400 for the hem and bustle. Luckily, I did not need any other alterations.

I have the Rosamund and it was right around $1600. I ordered the shorter length (I’m right at 5′ 3” and a half) so that the only alterations I have to do will be to add cups and a really simple bustle. It has a corset back that I am not the biggest fan of, but again, I won’t have to have it taken in any so that will save a lot on alterations in the long run.

My maggie was 1495 with tax but without alterations. I won’t know about alterations for another couple weeks when I get it back again.
You can definitely take it to an outside seamstress, they will be much cheaper, but make sure you find a reputable one.

I tried a few on in the $750 – $900 (before alterations) range. I think it depends on what style and kind of detail you’re looking for!

The price will depend on a few things. I live in Australia, for example, so my Maggie Sottero (Fredricka if you’re interested lol) cost a fair bit more here than it seems to cost in the states. I spent $2100 and this is before alterations (although mine needs very minimal alterations).

My Maggie Sottero was just around $1900 after taxes, so on the higher end. However, it has a lot of detailing so you can probably find one cheaper. Look on their website for a trunk show. The store may have a sale going on. I didn’t buy mine during a trunk show but got a nice discount on my veil.
