Maggie and I never made it to Special Event. As she zipped me into my 14th dress (or something like that) at Maggie Flood, I called Special Event and told them I'd have to reschedule.
Maggie Flood is great. The two women we met with (spend nearly 4 hours with) on Saturday afternoon are the ones who make all the dresses on-premise. They charge you a set amount, but that includes all the fittings and alterations. Basically, they build the dress you want. I tried on so many because I was looking for elements and then I'd be able to put it all together in whatever way I wanted.
I can't describe the dresses for obvious reasons on this blog, but I can say I found two there that I really liked and one got a much bigger reaction than the other one.
Maggie and I were both struck at how cool and how wonderful these two women were at Maggie Flood. We'd both love to do business there for our dresses for the wedding.
Just need to see a few more places to make sure I'm not missing out on anything. I'd hate for a rock to be unturned, as it were. And I have to reschedule that Special Event appointment, because I've also heard good things about them.
