I am in love with this board!  To all of the brides who have posted, you look positively beautiful!  I’d much rather see all of you in bridal magazines as opposed to the wafey twigs.  Absolutely gorgeous.

@o0olibelulao0o:  That dress looks AMAZING on you! I was looking for something similar.  Thanks for sharing!  And if you don’t mind me asking… where did you get your bmaids dresses? I love the different styles!

@Rachael1287:  Yours is the first dress to give me a tinge of dress regret! It’s gorgeous! Is it heavy?

@mbib16:  Very random, but is this at The Bridal Garden in South Jersey? It looks just like the upstairs of the salon I got my dress at.

I’m sure I found this dress searching online and passed right over it. It’s SO much prettier in person!!

I would have never chosen this dress if the picture was all I could go by, even when I was in the boutique the lady held up the dress I said “Yeah okay, couldn’t hurt to try something that’s the complete opposite of what I want?”

Maggie Sottero Karena on the model:

 

 

Me when I picked my Maggie Sottero Karena up from the salon before alterations (from the mirror, so it’s flipped):

 

 

It’s much more of a fitted A-line on me.  I wouldn’t have looked at it twice based on the model picture because I really don’t like the trumpeting.

I am loving this thread and all your beautiful pictures! I find the model pics are quite hilarious, haha! I’m not into bridal photography for model dresses…the poses, the expressions, the ridiculous photoshopping. Don’t enjoy them. But you brides look amazing!!!

 

Here is the model with a champagne sash:

 

 

I wore the dress with  a vintage flower belt:
