    I bought my dress, and I love it so much, I have to show it off;)

    I bought my dress yesterday afternoon :) I love love love love love love it! Can you tell I love it? It was between this and the Alfred Angelo one. I ended up with this one because I have never seen any wedding dress like this on another bride. And since I have my bust problem, haha, the straps are fantastic! No pulling the dress up all night! It is so beautiful in person. I got it in diamond white, which I am assuming is Maggie Sottero's version of ivory. Anyway, thank you for letting me brag, hehe :) It should be in  by Feb/March and then I can start my fittings! Yay:)

    P.S. it is not nearly as heavy as it looks!

    WOW, Liz - it's FABULOUS!  LOVE it!  I'm obviously partial to the scalloped edge at the top. ;)  And, the straps are such a pretty part of the design; so often straps look "stuck on" as an afterthought.

    Can't wait to see you in it!!  You'll be amazed at how the fittings transform it to true perfection for you.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Gorgeous!  Isn't it an amazing moment when you find THE dress??  Every so often someone starts a "show us your dress" thread, so it's great that you did your own!  I think I can speak for others when I say we LOVE seeing dresses!  I think I will still be watching "Say Yes to the Dress" long after my wedding...

    Congratulations!

    Liz, your dress is awesome! I don't know what they're called, but I love the cascading poufs in front (that sounds awful, lol, but they're very chic!). How long is the train?

    My FI asked me if I still plan to watch it after the wedding.  Of course I do!  I record them, so I have a ton taking up all our DVR space.

    Whirled I think they are called pick-ups. And the train is a chapel...so not that long. And when it is bustled, you won't even notice, it will just look like part of the dress, apparently! And Dougas, haha!!

    Me too - I DVR them all.  Now they are on "On Demand" too, just in case I miss any...

    Re the posts by: Dougas, Tarheel, et. al. - isn't it funny how the boys jump in and crash the wedding site in a way that reminds me of elementary school when boys didn't know how to talk to the girls so they'd pull their hair or something just to get some kind of reaction!

    Lovely lovely. And "Say Yes to the Dress" is so addictive, I had to quit cold turkey. It gave me serious dress envy.

    Very mean and very inappropriate. I was just saying the woman in the picture is pretty and then I was attacked with that comment.

    lovely!  I wore a Maggie dress in diamond white and it is a beautiful color.  It is not quite as yellow as most ivories.  (Some Maggie dresses come in Ivory too--it's a different color.)  It is more like a very soft white--less blue and less bleachy than a pure white.  The yellow tones don't register strongly.  I think it's a very flattering color.

    ANd the signature Maggie corset back is a wonderful feature.  I lost 10 pounds accidently before my wedding, and so we just laced it tighter--it fit like a glove!

    Jasmine, that is why I love the Maggies. The corset backs really attracted me to them. When I tried them on, I could tell right away that if I gained (hopefully not!) or lost weight, the dress would still fit like a glove, because of the corset!

    Do you mind me asking what Maggie dress you wore?

    I love when they come out of the woodwork like this.

    I have the Sara Maggie dress with the corset back...I love it! The corsets are very sexy.
