At Maggie Sottero, we design each dress with a specific bride in mind—whatever her personal style, body type, wedding vision, budget, and timeline. So when it comes to our wedding dress customization and personalization, we are pleased to offer plenty of options to create your one-of-a-kind bridal look. Keep scrolling to see the bridal customizations we offer!
Sheer Bodices and Lined Bodices
In the market for a fully-lined style? We’ve got you covered. Love an illusion peekaboo vibe? We’ve got you uncovered! Many of our gowns feature bodices depending on your preferred level of exposure. These range from full lace and lining to sexy nude and barely-there illusion. Keep it classic with a fully lined variation like Tuscany by Maggie Sottero (pictured left), or dare to bare with a sheer style like Tuscany Lynette. The choice is yours!
Different Wedding Dress Lengths
One way to take some heavy lifting out of gown alterations? Order based on different wedding dress lengths—such as longer for tall brides and shorter for petite brides. This customization helps you tailor to your figure, avoid major hemline alterations, and personalize your gown to accommodate your preferred shoe height. Any Maggie Sottero gown can be ordered 3- or 5-inch shorter or longer from the standard length. Additionally, certain gowns’ trains can vary in length. This is a great way to play up the drama with a longer train or scale back with a shorter, more manageable hem.
Wedding Dress Bra Cup Colors and Sizes
Your girls are fully invested in your next customization: wedding dress bra cup colors and sizes. Depending on the illusion and bodice features on the style you order, you can customize your bra cup color. We offer bra cups in three colors: medium nude tone, darker cocoa, and lighter ivory. We also feature multiple bra cup sizes, which are tailored according to gown size to offer additional support for those of us that are “blessed” up top.
Sister Styles with Added Coverage for Curvy Brides
Fallen in love with a style, but it needs more coverage or support to fit like magic? Get to know our sister styles. These styles include higher backs and necklines, additional boning, and additional bodice lining. Below are a few of our favorites:
Lonnie by Maggie Sottero, a flirty mermaid wedding dress, features a sheer lace and textured tulle bodice. It has a sister style, Lonnie Lynette, which features a lined bodice. Both gowns come in sizes 0-28, with Lonnie Lynette designed for additional coverage and support, a gorgeous choice for curvy brides!
Daphne by Rebecca Ingram, a classically romantic lace fit-and-flare wedding dress, features an illusion lace bodice and low illusion back. Its sister style, Daphne Lynette, features a lined bodice with a higher back. Both gowns come in sizes 0-28, with Lonnie Lynette designed for curvy brides that are looking for additional coverage and support.
If you’re in a glam and sparkly mood for your big day, you’ll love sister styles Emmanuelle and Emmanuelle Lynette by Sottero and Midgley. Both gowns feature a figure-flattering mermaid silhouette and sexy bodice details, while Emmanuelle Lynette has a touch more coverage in the neckline and back. Trés chic!
Detachable Overskirts and Trains
Wanting a gown you can wear and change up for both the ceremony and the reception? Opt for our styles that have detachable overskirts or trains. Olyssia by Maggie Sottero is proof that minimalism is chic. This long sleeve sheath wedding gown features a detachable overskirt accented in lace. It is perfect for an elegant ceremony, while also providing a simpler look for your reception.
Kaysen, on the other hand, changes things up with a striking detachable train that you can wear at the ceremony and take off for your cocktail party. And the best part? Both parts of this gorgeous gown feature lace motifs over sparkle tulle. All of these customizable options have us heart eyeing!
Wedding Dress Customization with Lace Packages
Looking for even more customization options? Talk with your local boutique about ordering lace motif and hem lace packages, a chic and one-of-a-kind way to personalize and embellish your gown. Lace motif packages can be used to add coverage or new details to necklines, backs, and accessories, while hem lace can be used to customize train length or add a matching embellishment to your veil or bouquet. Your seamstress can help you browse products and understand your options. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time and allot extra gown budget for any custom alterations!
Wedding Dress Sleeve Personalization
How to turn up your style game: opt for detachable accessories and eye-catching motifs to create a look that is uniquely yours. Collin by Sottero and Midgley and Alma by Rebecca Ingram are two of our styles with wedding dress sleeve personalization, featuring delicate sleeve treatments that can be removed and attached for a more customizable look.
Detachable Bows for Wedding Dress Customization
Searching for a unique and girly-glam wedding dress customization? Put a bow on it! Easton by Sottero and Midgley is fairytale-ready with its delicate yet statement-making bow, while Greta by Rebecca Ingram features an enchanting bow accessory for your rustic-chic aesthetic.
