Today we’re tackling two key parts of gown-shopping: how to find a specific wedding dress in your area, and what to expect for Store Events.
When it comes to helping you find your dream gown, no one does it better than an Authorized Retailer of Maggie Sottero Designs. Here’s how to make the most of your gown search and appointment!
You found your favorite dress on our website! Perfect, we created our Dress Finder Feature for your convenience. Scroll down and enter you zip code or postal code to find a boutique near you that carries that specific style!
Is your dress not yet at a boutique near you? Check the Related Styles near you below, and you’ll be able to browse similar gowns that are nearby!
Even if your gown is in a boutique nearby, you can still see related styles near you!
Next, Call or Visit a Boutique’s Website to Book Your Appointment. Most brick-and-mortar bridal boutiques require an appointment for you to try on gowns. You can also check out our Store Locator to find shops in your area, then visit their websites to reserve your spot!
Next, Ask About the Boutique’s Maggie Sottero Designs Inventory
Our boutiques carry a diverse selection of samples from past and current collections, in various sizes and colorways. The boutique may have a list of samples on their Pinterest page or website for you to browse before your appointment, or may ask for your own Pinterest board or wedding vision to match with styles available for you try on.
Request Specific Styles through Our Loan Sample Program
Most Maggie Sottero Designs gowns from current collections are available to be shipped through our Loan Sample Program. If a boutique in your area doesn’t carry a sample of the gown you’re interested in, they may be able to borrow it for you to try on for your appointment date. Submit your requests to your boutique ahead of time (at least two weeks in advance of your appointment), and plan for a possible fee for the loan request, depending on the boutique’s policies. (Please inquire with your boutique for more details.)
Ask About Upcoming Events
A Store Event is a great opportunity for brides to find their perfect gown by Maggie Sottero Designs. Boutiques typically host Store Events to showcase their permanent or loaned inventory, giving brides the chance to browse in a celebratory, personalized atmosphere. Check out our Store Events listings for upcoming events in your area, or inquire with boutiques directly.
