Anyone want to sell their Monalisa?

Hi Ladies!

I just want to tell you how helpfiul you all have been & I really enjoyed reading your conversation about the dress. I am having my own Maggie Soterro issue~ the dress is almost identical to the Monalisa Royale but it has some sort of detail on the left side of the skirt. The bridal shop down here is a nightmare & I so don't want to do business with them but I can't seem to find the dress on Maggie's site so I am trying my best to figure out what to do. Go with a dress I love & deal with a shop that won't let me photograph myself in the dress to see how it looks on me & is rude to me everytime I'm in there or go with the shop I love & hope they have something similar for for me...decisions decisions...UGH! You think these shops would work with you to make this a happy experiance as it should be but some of them just don't & its so not right!!! Anyways if anyone out there knows the name of the dress that is almost just like the Monlisa Royale but has some beading detail only on the left side of the skirt that would help me out SO much =)

I would totally not work with nasty bridal salons! They don't deserve your money or your business. Why not try calling around to stores out of your area a bit and see if they know the name of the dress?

Are you positive it's a Maggie? There's an Alfred Angelo dress thats almost identical to the Monalisa Royale. I'm not sure what it's called though.

OMG~ after a very intense conversation with that horrible bridal shop I finally got the name of the dress out of the lady & better news is that the shop that I do like can get it for me if I decide this is in fact "The Dress"~ Its the Maggie Sottero Nevaya, what do you think??

That dress is gorgeous! I would definitely try to find another bridal shop that carries it though so you don't have to deal with their crap anymore!

Hey, I'm having a little bit of trouble bustling this dress. How is yours bustled?

It's a french bustle, I think they're gonna put either 3 or 4 sets of ribbons underneath it so we can just tie it. I haven't actually gotten it done yet though, so I'm not positive how they are going to do it. Hope that helps!

I had my first fitting last night, and it was actually the first time I tried on my dress! Can you believe it, I fell in love with the dress and ordered it without trying it on! I was nervous this week- what would I do if I didnt like how it looked. WELL IT WAS GREAT!!!!! I got the Ivory/Pewter and it goes perfect with my pearl necklace and earrings!! It was great!! The only thing I don't like is that it is strapless. I am a large chested gal (double D) so they are adding straps to my dress, which will give me more support. They also set up my bustle last night, they are going to do color coordinated ties to make it easy for my bridal party to do my bustle for me. I will try to post some pictures later today. I definitely think that for my next fitting I am going to try the fullest slip that they have. I think this dress definitely needs one!

NOW I am REALLY excited and can't wait!!!!!! YEAHHHH!!!!!

Congrats! I can't wait to see pictures! I'm using the fullest crinoline they have too; I feel like it looks almost droopy with a less full one. I'm also partial to really full dresses though :)

okay here are some picts from my fitting.

front

Personally I think I need a fuller slip under.
full back

I LOVE the back of this dress!
bustle

The bustle isnt straight, this is while she was trying to get it done correct. but she is going to have ties that will tie it all up!
