In love with designer Matthew Christopher!!! <3

Recommended Posts

I'm head over heels with all his gowns!!!! My pick though is...

 

MATTHEW CHRISTOPHER

 

Click on Collections. 2008. Dress is "Imagine". I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee it! It's not a typical poofy gown...it's flowy and light, yet so detailed with each individually hand knot...I think it's gorgeous :) Price tag is some where along the lines of $3,000. Definitely over budget...even for my parents who are paying for it...I want it though!!!

 

What do you ladies think? Should I go for it?!?

Tough choice. Reading your post I thought, oh, over budget but then I saw the dress! It's lovely!!! I say if you can fit into your budget go for it. If you look at other dresses you'll probably be comparing it to this one. Have you tried it on?

I added the photo for you... I am prob not the best person to ask, cuz I found my dress in the 1st shop we went to. But it was more then triple my budget. I went to every other store anywhere near where I lived, but ended up going back 9 months later to get "the" one. So I think if you can't afford it or don't want to pay that much, don't even try it on! If I hadn't tried mine on, there were so many others that looked nice, but nothing compared.

It's an amazing dress....I'm now glued to the site! LOL, they are out of my price range but I'd be willing to try a dress second hand, especially if it's that amazing!
Good Luck!
Haha! I saw in on their site as soon as I got home! I'm a 14 right now, but plan on being a 10 by January, LOL. I read all the bride's details...I'm shorter and smaller busted, so it could be taken in. I'd have to see it in person and make sure it's in great condition. Looked amazing on her too...it's nice to see it on a real bride as opposed to a "model".

Sounds like it might be a match! I love the dress it looked great on a real girl,too! I'm going to call and make an appointment to try on a couple of his gowns here in Dallas. If I fall in love. I have a year to stalk the pre-owned sited to find a more affordable way to make it happen.

Sandra, it is a very pretty and unique dress. If you KNOW that's THE DRESS, go for it. Here are your options:

1. Send the seller of the used dress and see if she can provide more details/pictures.

2. If you prefer to have a new one, check with the salons to see if they have any upcoming trunk shows that offer a 10% - 15% discount.

3. Contact the salons to see if they are willing to sell you a sample at 40% discount.

 

Hope this helps! I know the feeling of really wanting the one you are in love with.

It is hard once you fall in love with a dress to go back. :) I am out looking again because the one I found is to formal for the beach. But I think if you love it you will find a way to make it work. Maybe find out the max $$ of your parents budget and then you could match the rest?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
