~*NEED HELP WITH DRESS*~

I am in desperate need of help. My wedding is next summer and I have my heart set on Maggie Sottero's Rhianna Royale. I have never seen it in person, and it is VERY hard to find in wedding shops. Basically the only way I can get it is to buy it first, then have it shipped to a store to try it on. I am wondering if anyone knows somewhere close to Grand Rapids, MI to find the dress, or if anyone has it. I would prefer it in white, in a 6 or 8. PLEASE HELP! Email me at KatyLaty18@yahoo.com

Katy, I ran into a similar problem with my dress. It was nowhere to be found. I pulled up the Maggie site and looked at all the retailers in my area. I called them all until I found the store that had my dress so I could try it on. I had to drive a ways, but I think it was worth trying it on before committing. Here's a list of your local stores that are on the Maggie site; ask if they have the Rhianna Royale in the store to try on and good luck! http://www.maggiesottero.com/stores.aspx

This happend with my MS dress as well, but I finally found a store that had it. Honestly I would call EVERY store in a radius to you and see if someone has it or WILL be getting it (such as during a trunk show or something). Dresses are so much different on then just looking at pictures, IMO. The good thing is you still have plenty of time, is it in the new or old MS line?

I agree w/pinky and holymoly, you definetly want to find a store that has it to try on or at least the same fit/style, so you can be sure that its the one you want. Good luck.

I agree with pp... I am wearing a Maggie dress and knew I wanted a Maggie dress, but not sure which one. So I made appointments at all the salons that carry Maggies so I could make a better decision. It worked out really well because I ended up falling in love with a dress that I kinda liked online, but was not exactly what I was looking for. Definitely call around and find out if any of the stores near you have it. Also, be open and try on other Maggie dresses, you may find one you like even better when it is in person.

Champ~ You are soooo good at remembering all of that stuff!

Another thing was I found it in white at one store- then found it later in Ivory at another store and thought what the hell I'll go try it- and WOW what a difference! I am sooooooooooooooooooooo happy I got it in Ivory- thats what put me over the top and make the sale. Might be weird, but it did make a huge difference on me, plus I had pictures in the white so I got to see the difference too. Just an FYI to look out for color as well... Maggie's light ivory can be much more flattering on certain skin types. HTH

HMM :)

KatyLaty, I, too found a beautiful Maggie dress online and tried it in a salon. It looked and felt completely different. I knew that it just wasn't "me." I would do what HolyMoly suggested and call every salon around your area. It's best to try it on before you order and pay for it.

Hi KatyLaty ~ I ordered the Maggie Sottero Rhianna Royale dress in diamond white. Yay, glad we have the same dress taste! I love the flower details on the dress, it fits well since it's a corset back which is a plus.

Champ, you do have a very good memory :)

Its a very striking dress! Plus at one point my office was literally a giant closet above Fifth Avenue, and I had to remember different clothing items, strange I know. If only I could remember where I put my keys or if I turned the oven off... Good luck katylaty!

KatyLaty18, this can help if you would love to buy diamond white sz.6 now! You are lucky to have right size! I was thinking to wear same dress also but changed my mind.
