Sisters sharing planning success and failures and stress,
I am looking for an A-line dress with princess (vertical) seems that has delicate beading and embroidery. I found a few dresses I really like by designer Matthew Christopher and he seems to specialize in the delicate work I admire. My problem is the cost of his dresses are more then twice the amount in my budget for a dress.
I figure more then a few of you, my fellow wedding planners, have looked at a LOT of dresses lately. I have been to a dozen stores now and have looked on line a great deal.
My favorite dresses so far are Matthew Christopher’s Marchessa (style 2710 from 2007 collection) and Trellis (style 2700). They are both over $3,000 and I’ve been trying to find adorable alterative. I even like the construction of David’s Bridal V8756, but not the beading and embroidery.
I liked the beading and embroidery of Maggie Sottero’s Felicity, but would prefer princess seams that play up my long slender waist.
Any suggestions of other similar dresses to try? Help! I need to order a dress soon, my wedding will be in Sept or Oct of ’08, but we just got engaged 2 weeks ago.
Thanks for your help!
