- Wedding: June 2013
Sooooooo…I had dress regret. Bought a dress on impulse (the Maggie Sottero Allyssa) and it’s GORGEOUS.
But it wasn’t MY gorgeous for my beach wedding. I am a frugal bride and didn’t want to pay out of my posterior for a new dress. I love Maggie Sottero but not her MFSP’s. I fell head over heels for the Miri. So off I went to the used dress websites.
After hours of looking, hoping, wondering if I could squeeze into a smaller size, take in a larger size….MY size Miri popped up on Tradesy. Unworn. With a bustle added. For HALF of the price of a new one. I was scared to pull the trigger but I am so glad I did. Here’s my awesome internet purchase, having never tried her on. This dress needs no alterations once I have shoes and crinoline on to make it more full.
I know lots of brides have worn Miri. But this one is mine and was meant for me and was such a good deal!! I am so excited that I listened to my gut and ordered my dream dress. Those ruffles are gonna shine on a beach…ahhhhswoooooonnnn. Thanks for letting me gush 🙂
ETA: The Allyssa is still for sale, very cheap ($450..new w/o tags) for an equally frugal bride)
