Maggie Sottero SPRING 2017 Avery Collection

Maggie Sottero's Spring 2017 Collection Photos Have Been Released . . . 

   and they do not disappoint! We always have such high expectations for a Maggie gown (because everyone loves a Maggie) and they never let us down! This year's collection, Avery, is full of the most beautiful laces, the most impeccable silhouettes, and so many Pinterest-worthy backs. The backdrop in each photo shows a beautiful open landscape filled with greenery and a few perfectly placed flowers-much like a fairytale setting. Bring in the warm lighting and the beautiful blond and read head models and you've got yourself a collection of a lifetime. Below are some of our favorites from this new season!


   A three-tiered skirt hemmed in scalloped lace appliqués adds romance and whimsy to this classic fit-and-flare. Lace motifs adorn the bodice, illusion V-neckline, illusion straps, and illusion open-back. Finished with covered buttons over zipper closure.


   This timeless yet alluring ballgown features off-the-shoulder sleeves, a V-back, and a sweetheart neckline. Shimmering beads accent delicate cascades of lace along the gown‘s bodice and tulle skirt. Finished with covered buttons over zipper and inner corset closure.


   This glamorous sheath features an elegant Aldora crepe skirt and a striking train comprised of illusion lace appliqués. Shimmering pearls accent swirls of beading and embroidered motifs along the gown‘s V-neckline, cap-sleeves, and illusion low back. Finished with crystal buttons over zipper closure.


    This vintage-inspired ballgown features lace appliqués over whimsical layers of dotted tulle and Chic organza. Featuring a V-neckline, illusion straps accented with lace appliqués, and square back. Swarovski crystals and beading add shimmer and ethereal texture. Finished with covered buttons over zipper closure.


   Lace appliqués, delicate pearls, and shimmering sequins adorn the bodice of this sweet and understated A-line, featuring a tulle skirt and strapless sweetheart neckline. Finished with covered buttons over zipper closure. Detachable tulle belt included.

Something Old, Something New

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

   Are you planning on using this classic tradition on your wedding day? We love seeing how brides incorporate this into their wedding. Do you know the meaning behind this? Here's a quick history lesson! Something old represents continuity in your love and marriage. Something new offers optimism for the future! Something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness. Something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. The meaning behind this tradition is beautiful and something that many brides today still do! Show us how you incorporated or plan on incorporating old, new, borrowed, and blue into your wedding!

Something Old

   Charms or jewelry from a mother or grandmother can be a great 'Something Old'! This bride tied this necklace into her bouquet.

Something New

Your wedding dress, of course! Or any jewelry, headpieces, or accessories that go along with your wedding ensemble. This is a super easy one to achieve!

Something Borrowed

This required a little crafting from the bride, but she has chosen to use some of the lace from her mother's wedding gown and turned it into a hair piece! (Also could be used for something old.)

Something Blue

This may be our favorite one. Something blue! We obsess over any bride who chooses to wear blue shoes to her wedding! We've also seen brides have their new initials monogrammed on the inside of their wedding dress in blue! Adorable!
