Hi! I only have a couple of photos taken with my mobile so the quality is not very good. The dress was one size bigger so the top was not as I wanted it to be. But I liked the quality! Also I would love it more I think if it had an A-line skirt and not a slim a-line skirt. Any ideas for similar dresses?

Hello again! And thanks for your response! I am starting to get a bit stressed because I find it so hard to decide! And I need to make a decision soon! The two top dresses I have tried is the Maggie Sottero Presca and the Pronovias Platino:

The skirt is lace on organza, which makes it more flowy. But it is a bit more expensive than Presca i think. Another similar pronovias dress I have tried on is Fresno.

Another one you might want to try is Maggie Sottero Catarina (even though it has more bling bling on it which is not my thing). The lace is very vintage  and the back is very impressive! Unfortunately, I cannot have this one since a close friend has already bought it for her wedding, which is only a couple of weeks after mine.

Do you think the Presca skirt could get more volume if worn with a bigger petticoat?

Do you have any idea how long it takes for a Maggie Sottero dress to be delivered in the US? I live abroad and they said I need to order 6 months in advance. But since I haven’t made up my mind it seems I won’t be able to have the dress on time. But if the time is much shorter in the US I could have my aunt picking it up from there and bringing it to me when she visits.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

Thanks for this! If you need any real photos of the Pronovias dresses I mentioned let me know and I will post a few. And I will keep you updated if I find anything similar. It seems we have the same taste in wedding dresses 🙂

So here is another view of the Pronovias Platino. It is a mirror image and thus not very clear.

Same size? Great! I think the lady in the Maggie Sottero store said I was a size 8, but when I measure myself I find me being a 4 or 6 according to a chart I found online. But I am not very familiar with US size charts so I might be wrong. What size are you?

I think my top 3 dresses are: the Maggie Presca, Pronovias Platino and Pronovias Fresno. But there are things I would like altered in all of them. In Presca I’d like a more A-line skirt, in Platino I don’t like the zip at the back and since there are all these layers of lace and organza I think it kind of makes me look fatter. In Fresno I would prefer some bling bling on the belt. Also, in the two Pronovias dresses I would prefer a sweetheart neckline. But buying a dress that expensive and also paying for alterations (which you don’t know if they will work) is not the best thing in the world I guess!

I also like a Wtoo dress (the one with the olive green belt) but i think it is slim A line too. Do yo have any pictures yourself?

 

here is the Platino from another angle

I just ordered Maggie’s Presca…the lace is beautiful and sash is very blingy, which I love. The picture shoes ivory lace over light gold with a sash from a different dress as it came with a chocolate one and it was too much contrast for me. I included a close up of the sash. I would love to see some more pics of Presca or Presca Marie, especially in Ivory with Ivory sash- which is what I ordered.
