I think you would have to talk to the seamstress at the shop where you purchase the gown. They may not want to remove the beading at all. Personally, I think the dress would not look at all the same without the beading. It would make the dress look like other dresses I have seen that are probably a lot less expensive. If they can take the beading off for you, it may also cost a lot. If they have to remove it from an already made dress, it could leave marks from wear the beading has been sewn on. If I were you, I would look for another dress without the beading, or have a dress custom made without the beading.

Maggie doesn’t do any customization on her gowns :o( she won’t add or take anything away, switch colors/materials, or even let you order cap sleeves if they aren’t made to go with that gown… kinda weird if you ask me! Your best bet would be to have the seamstress take a look at it, but they are probably gonna charge you a ton cause it’s gonna take a lot of hours to remove each bead!

I can kind of see why MS doesn’t offer customisation – there are about 300+ gowns to chose from, and thousands of brides who wear them – customising would be a nightmare! I can also see that it’s very trying if you want something tweaked. 

Regarding SaBelle, there are quite a lot of gowns out there with similar silhouettes and general look, but that may have plainer tops. Just in MS alone, there’s Kendra, Andrea, Brittney, Colette, Janessa, Selma and Aurelie that have a similar ballgown feel, but lace or plain satin tops.

Pronovias’ new collection has a ballgown section, or you might try Blue by Enzoani. I’m sure if you went to a few bridal shops and say that you’re interested in SaBelle-type gowns, they’ll have ones for you to try, and you’ll find one that’s perfect.

Look at Maggie Sottero style Kendra – it is nearly the same dress only with out the beading. You could have a seamstress remove the beading but it would be a costly alteration.
