  • THE STORY

    after searching eight different stores spanning five cities including San Francisco and trying on about 50 dresses (beaded, lacy, frilly, sheath, mermaid, ball gown) I found myself at Trudys brides in Campbell Ca. I decided instead of trying on what I had been trying on I decided to pick 5 completely dresses that I didn’t think I would ever choose and try them on. as I slipped the Kendall over my head I was shocked that not only did it fit perfectly, it was also one third of my dress budget. I bought my dress that day on March 3rd 2014. I wore it on September 4th 2014.I loved every little detail about it. From the inner corset to the boning in the bust. this meant no belly bulge when you sit down and no bra necessary. The ruching was also very flattering. The dress hugges my hips and back side but also flared out just below the hips to give me that Cinderella feeling, without feeling like I was drowning in a ball own. the dress is described as a relaxed mermaid, but I did not feel like it was a mermaid at all, more like a fit and flare. The soft shimmer satin was a relief after trying on rough beaded gowns that scraped my arms and caught on everything. The shimmer of the satin along with the Swarovoski crystals that embellished the beautiful bows on the back and where the dress gathered on the side, was the perfect amount of sparkle for me. The dress did not feel too heavy or too hot. Its simple elegance allows it to be worn in either a ballroom type wedding or a country club type setting. If you want your groom in tears as you walk down the isle (as mine was) this is the dress for you. I wanted to post pictures of me in it at my wedding but the file size was to large. I encourage you to look this dress up on Maggies site to see the beautiful details. The color is Alabaster (which was the same color as my husbands Ivory suit). I wore a Single layer fingertip length veil as to not hide the beautiful bows and crystals. (If I can figure out how to add more pictures, I will.)

  • ALTERATIONS

    This is a Sottero and Midgley (Maggie Sottero) size 6 Measurements are as follows: Bust 34 1/2 (I did not alter) Waist 26 1/2 (I did not alter) Hips 37 (I did not alter) The only alterations I made was taking up the hem (I'm 5'6" & I wore 4" heels). It can easily be let back out. Under the hips where the material gathered I took in about 1/2" (which also can be taken out) I also had to put in several bustles to lift the train after the ceremony for dancing. With that being said just those few things cost $300. So if your 5'6" and meet those measurements & plan on wearing 4" heels, you will not only save $400 on a gorgeous dress but also $300 in alterations.

  • PRESERVATION

    I have not cleaned the dress. It has normal wear on the underneath from dancing in-doors. I do not see any reason why it would not come out with dry cleaning. I did not put the dress on until i got to the venue & I removed it prior to leaving the venue (so no craziness in the dress). With that being said, if the buyer wants to assume the dry cleaning costs I am willing to lower the price $100. If I assume the dry cleaning costs the price is firm at $750.
