Maggie, Maggie, Maggie. Oh, how we love you! We could go on and on for days about Maggie Sottero and the 3 amazing collections that lie within, but we will dive right in and get to the point! In this blog, we’ll tell you WHY we cherish Maggie so much and share some of our favorites with you (it’s gonna be hard to choose, but we’ll try our best!)
What/Who is Maggie Sottero?
Maggie Sottero is one of the most sought after bridal gown manufacturers in the world! Since the year 1997, they have been thriving. The brand is true to the term, “family-owned” and they value quality and integrity to ensure every bride gets the best, for the most attainable price.
The Maggie Sottero brand consists of three collections: Maggie Sottero, Sottero & Midgley, and Rebecca Ingram. Each collection is unique and designed in its own way, with prices ranging anywhere from $800 to $4000.
Why do we love Maggie Sottero so much?
At Sophia’s, we absolutely adore all three Maggie Sottero Lines. The diverse collection allows all brides to personalize their look for their vision. Each of their dresses has its own personality, and there is truly an option for everyone! With endless options of sleeves, coverage, necklines, details, structure, sizes, we believe that Maggie Sottero does a great job at designing dresses for all brides, no matter who you are. Their dresses vary from full glitz and glam to classic and clean and everything in between!
What are our favorite gowns by Maggie Sottero?
This question is a hard one, but a great one! We have so many favorites, but we will try to keep it minimal. All of these dresses are in store and ready to be put on a bride, so if one catches your eye, don’t hesitate to make an appointment! Let’s get started..
Wow, this dress is the ultimate mermaid! With a plunging illusion sweetheart neckline and a fit that hugs all the right places, this Rebecca Ingram gown, Hattie, will have all eyes on you! The sexy hourglass effect is strong with this gown, and it even has a layer of sparkle to keep you shining in the spotlight all night long. We are absolutely obsessed with the way this dress looks on brides!
Alistaire by Maggie Sottero is a gorgeous fit and flare gown that isn’t missing detail ANYWHERE! From a bodice of lace and sheer detailing to the tulle skirt trimmed with horsehair, this dress is the gorgeous start you need to happily-ever-after. The beaded bodice and dainty spaghetti straps give a feminine touch that will leave you looking fierce.
This dress is calling your name, but first, you should know its name! This is Fiona by Maggie Sottero. Isn’t she beautiful? You cannot go wrong with a sparkly fit and flare–but what’s even more special: peep the sleeves! The sleeves on this gown are dreamy because of their off the shoulder feature. Off the shoulder sleeves allow you to have the sleeve look while still showing a little shoulder–but ditch the sleeves altogether, and it’s a whole new look! We love the customization possibilities with this gown! Whether your vision is classic or whimsy–this is the dress for you! It’s just enough fairytale, but nothing too out there.
Did someone say, DREAMY?! Oh my, meet Lorraine by Rebecca Ingram. A beaded v-neck bodice combined with a chiffon sheath slimming silhouette is a dream by itself, and are we seeing the slit?! This dress is light and breathable for all weather situations and all venues. If you are someone who values comfort and absolute beauty, what are you waiting for? Lorraine is the perfect dress to make a statement on your big day.
Okay… Let’s talk Glitz & Glam for a sec… Do you see this dress? The beaded lace details are enough to take everyone’s breath away, but Sottero and Midgley took it a step further, with Chad, to add an entire layer of glitter tulle to keep you shining from a mile away. This amazing A-line gown is sparkling from head to toe with shimmer. Whether you are getting married in a boho ballroom, an ice palace, an industrial-chic rooftop, a Vegas venue, or a full glitz and glam disco club, this dress will make dreams come true!
You’re gonna have to give us a few moments to collect ourselves… The sleeves, the lace, the corset–this dress is absolutely breathtaking. Benson by Sottero and Midgley is a vintage bell sleeve wedding dress with a criss-cross rope corset. The detailing on this dress leaves us speechless every. Single. Time. It can truly work with any vision: vintage, classic, whimsical, Hollywood glam, or modern fairytale. There are no limits with a dress like this!
Let’s pause for a classic and clean moment… Fernanda by Maggie Sottero is PROOF that minimalist is chic. This crepe fit and flare wedding dress features graceful lines and luxurious buttons all down the back. We love a button detail–it’s such a simple feature that adds a lavish feel. The Brisa stretch jersey lining of this gown adds a comfortable touch. Fernanda is a showstopper that lets the bride do the talking.
Sottero and Midgley did something here with this dress: Meet Pierce. This princess pearl tulle wedding dress comes with a FIERCE boho twist. Pearl detailing is in right now, and this dress does not miss! The details don’t stop in the bodice; they are all over this baby! This sophisticated boho bridal gown offers the dreamiest bodice and back details while letting the skirt flow freely with a hint of intensity.
This magical v-neck lace a-line is giving us major romance vibes. Minerva by Rebecca Ingram is the perfect gown for anyone who is looking to serve soft, subtle, romantic looks at their wedding. This dress delivers grace and beauty so magically and whimsically. The soft touch of tulle in the skirt allows you to flow effortlessly throughout your wedding day. Inspired by all things bright, beautiful, and blooming, it is perfect for any bride.
