My Wedding Dress

...is a Monalisa Royale by Maggie Sottero.

It has always been a dream of mine to walk down the aisle and feel like a princess. When I first laid my eyes on this gown through the designer's website, I knew right then and there that this is the dress I'm going to wear on my wedding in the Philippines. We went dress shopping for 2 days. The first bridal shop that we went to does not carry Maggie Sottero's designs but I still went ahead and try something that looks a little bit similar. It was pretty, but I would still want to find a place that carry the Monalisa Royale. The last 2 shops that we visited are authorized dealers of Maggie Sottero and I was ecstatic that they had the exact dress that I wanted to try on. Just as what I've thought, the dress was gorgeous. Hubby went with me but I stayed the whole time in the dressing room, that way he won't be able to see me on it. But he laughed so hard when I told him that I fell in love with myself when I saw myself in the mirror with the Monalisa on, lol! We bought the dress last Saturday. I got lucky that there's one on my size in their warehouse so they are going to have it ready for me in 10 days. It needs to be altered because I'm so short for the gown but at least we have plenty of time to do that before I fly to the PI in November.

The website describes the gown as a one-piece, corset, strapless, full A-line gown with sweetheart neckline. The gown features regal embellished embroidery accented with Swarovski crystals, bugle beads, seed beads, glass beads, and sequins. Embellishments ornament the bodice and center front skirt panel. The caught-up cutaway skirt is richly decorated with motifs that also accent the caught up skirt back. The embellished chapel length train finishes the style. It is available in All White, White/Pewter accent, Ivory/Pewter accent.

I got mine in Ivory/Pewter accent. Woohoo! I am so excited. I can't wait to actually wear it on my wedding day. Now, I'm gonna start to think about what accessories go best with it. I'm actually thinking of getting a set of 3-row pearl choker necklace and earrings. Instead of a tiara, I might wear an elegant but simple crystal headband. I'd like to have my hair down with little curls but I'm not sure if it will look good on me. We'll see. Awwww! I'd better stop rambling, hehehe! I'll share more photos about it as I am getting everything finalized. Oh, by the way, if you've read this far, thanks a lot for taking time to know more about me and our upcoming wedding. It's my pleasure to share this with you, guys!
