I also live in Idaho. I have called every dress store in Idaho and the only store that has the dress in the store in Twin Falls. They have it in a size 2. We are getting married in Washington and visit frequently and I called about 10 stores there and none of them have the dress. It's a georgous dress! Let me know if you can find it anywhere else. A size 2 is small!!

I'm having computer problems! I hope this doesn't show up twice :) I live up in North Idaho and Twin Falls seems like a long way to go to try a dress that is way too small (I'm more of a 12 than a 2)! I will keep looking in the Spokane area and see what I can come up with. I will let you know if I find anything! My mom lives in the tri cities so my search may move there soon!!! Good luck to you and congrats on the wedding! I will post whatever I find :)

So, I've made a few calls and have some unfortunate news, but it's not all bad. I called Celestial Selections in Spokane Wa and they said that the Mona Lisa Royale is two seasons old and that they did have it, but they switch samples every season to bring in the new line. However........the sales clerk was EXTREMELY helpful and nice and he told me that they are the biggest Maggie Sottero retailer in the pacific northwest. He said that the "Mona Lisa Royale" is from the "Hot Couture" line from two seasons ago. He said that very often, they update their most popular gowns and give them a new name eventhough they are extremely similar. Also, the have two other lines that are less expensive (the Hot Couture is the most expensive line) and generally they make small modifications, like using less expensive lace, and add a gown that looks almost identical to a lesser line and give it a different name. From all that I have seen I love Maggie and think I want to try and find a gown as similar to the Mona Lisa as possbile. I think I will start my search at Celestial Selections in Spokane! I have their contact info if you need it! Good Luck!

Ooooh, that's a beautiful gown. Interestingly enough, David's Bridal has a gown that is close to this design in their current collection. If you become desperate ;) you could look into it. The style is V9539. They tried :D

Oh Thanks!!! I will check out the style by David's Bridal. I've been hesitant to check them out because they seem like a rush you in/rush you out type of store, but I love the look of this gown so I will definately look it up online!! Thanks for the input.

You are absolutely right about DB being an in & out store (at least locally anyway). I actually had a dress there but due to their horrific customer service, I threw them the dueces and put my money towards a Maggie gown also ;) Hence the words "if you are desperate" in my previous posts! HA! Good luck to you. You have great taste so I know you'll be fine!

Yes that dress is gorgeous. I was suppose to get married in September but I postponed my wedding until May of 2010. I got pregnant! Go figure. But my due date is March of 2010 and the Mona Lisa Royale is my wedding dress but I dont think I'll be fitting into my size 10 anymore after this baby. I am selling it for $800 and I need to buy another one just a bigger size. I'm willing to take a cut since it cost me $1300.00. Its an authentic brand new beautiful Maggie Sottero Mona Lisa Royale in size 10 if anyone is interested. Just email me at ldydee223@aol.com.

I got so many compliments on it... I can't even count how many told me it was the most beautiful dress they'd ever seen! Apparently it was really sparkley during the ceremony... I can't wait to see the video.

To those that are looking for the Maggie Sottero Monalisa Royale dress, I may be able to help you. I live in NJ and was suppose to get married in August. We cancelled the wedding due to a lot of family drama and have not picked a new date as of yet. My mother actually ruined the finding of the wedding dress. The Monalisa Royale was my dream dress, however, I have chosen to get a new dress. I just posted my dress on ebay to be purchased, it is a size 10 with a corset back and is regular length. So if you need any alterations it will not be a problem. My dress has never been worn and has been in a closet in the dress bag, absolutely nothing is wrong with it. If you are interested in purchasing the dress please message me or email me at jenngent@comcast.net. I remember when I was searching for it, it was very hard to find so if I can help any of you please let me know.

I know this is a bit unconventional, and a few people might be scared to do this, but this dress is available on Ebay (basically, a knockoff produced in Hong Kong) for around $200. The dress is custom made based on 16 measurements, so you can be pretty sure only minor alterations have to be made.
If you're on a budget, it's definitely an option to consider. Just order the dress early so you can get it and have any necessary alterations done in time. Oh, and definitely read seller reviews before you purchase it to find out if there's been happy customers. I did this, and actually emailed a few people who had bought the same dress and got actual pictures and testimonials. I personally haven't purchased the dress yet, but based on what the other buyers told me, and the fact that me and my fiance pretty much have to pay for the entire wedding ourselves.. I'm definitely in favor of saving $800+. As soon as I do get the dress I'll post pictures.. that probably won't be for a few months yet though. :)

Oh, and to all of you who have posted pictures, you look gorgeous. It's nice to see what the dress looks like on different body types and not just the models. And the fact that it looks amazing on everyone is definitely comforting.

Hi everyone!

Wow! I was so happy to find this post!! I am getting married next August on August 6, 2011 and yesterday went out to look for dresses, just for fun and ta-da - I tried on this dress and fell in complete love with it!

It looks so beautiful on everyone!

I was just wondering whether someone could clarify a few points for me...

First, what is the difference between the Mona Lisa and the Mona Lisa Royale?

And second, are there any examples of the all white gown vs. the white/ivory with pewter?

Thanks so much in advance!

What a lovely dress :-)

Fairytale: The only difference between the Monalisa and the Monalisa Royale is the fabric. ML is taffeta, and MLR is satin.

If you look earlier in this thread at my pics, mine was the Monalisa Royale- ivory/pewter.

Hope that helps!
