Drums please...introducing - My wedding gown!

Well, quite simply:  It's a Maggie Sottero.  My cousin (and bridesmaid) mentioned her to me when I was shopping with my girls describing what I wanted and could not find the dress at all.  I found plenty of gorgeous dresses that I liked different things from each one, but not THE one that had it all.  Until I started to browse Maggie's site and found several that were so close.

But I have to tell you, I looked at several dresses online and on the rack/hanger that looked nothing like what I expected when I put them on.  It's truly hard to tell just from a picture.  You really need to put on a few different styles and see what 'feels' good and looks good on you and then you can begin to narrow it down.
And thanks to my southern belle, Marina at the 7th salon I visited, I was able to finally find the perfect Maggie gown.  And here it is:



And the back which is what I die for because it's a corset AND has just the right amount of uniqueness with the beading that comes around the back but doesn't cover it.



And finally, mine will actually have straps like this because I am not huge of strapless at all for myself.  So what do you think?

I love your dress! Completely agree with you about the straps - I will be getting some on my dress as well.

PS Thanks so much for forwarding me your questionnaire spreadsheets - I'm excited to use them this weekend.

Absolutely gorgeous! I totally agree about Maggie Sottero. I just felt like a queen when I put on the Cambria style. Here's a link to it: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?keywordText=cambria&keywordType=any&page=0&pageSize=12&style=A3276B. I love having the flexibility of the bolero jacket/strapless.

Gorgeous !! Gourgeous !! Gorgeous!!
I am not a big fan of strapless either. Those straps added a little more charm.
Congratulations on your finding.

Gorgeous dress. Mine is a Maggie Sottero too - her dresses are fantastic, great fit so you don't need any 'special' underwear underneath.

Mine doesn't come with straps but I want to get straps attached, as I need to cover my shoulders in the church.
