New: Matthew Christopher at Avenia Bridal in Orem

Remember this pretty little number by Matthew Christopher from our fashion shoot with Elizabeth Messina?

We fell head over heels for this dress–and designer Matthew Christopher–after this shoot. Appropriately named “Dahlia” with it’s petal-like skirt, the dress hugged our model Alex’s curves in all the right places. When Alex emerged from the dressing room wearing Dahlia, she literally took our breath away.

If you love this dress too, then you’ll be thrilled to know that Avenia Bridal in Orem recently announced they will be carrying Matthew Christopher’s collection of wedding gowns (including lovely Dahlia)!

We were over the moon when we heard this news, and couldn’t wait to learn more. We sat down with Lisa Powelson of Avenia Bridal to get the scoop. Read on for more details about Matthew Christopher, his designs, and the gowns you will soon see at Avenia.

Why did you decide to bring Matthew Christopher to Avenia Bridal?

Love the gowns, love Matthew, love the look. This dashing, witty, charismatic designer has been fabulous to work with thus far. His designs are so elegant, sometimes playful, with such attention to detail–beautiful gowns and reasonable pricing for the level of detail and fabrics. Matthew will also customize his gowns (i.e. design new bodices that work with the existing design of the gown, not “add-ons”) for those who desire sleeves and shoulders, allowing our market access to amazing designer gowns with the coverage some brides need.

Which Matthew Christopher gowns will be available at Avenia Bridal?

Dahlia, Diana, Sasha, Margot, Peggy Sue, and Poppy (to start)

What type of bride do you envision wearing Matthew Christopher?

Matthew’s gowns will work well with our bridal demographic in Utah. His designs are sophisticated and feminine, but appealing to brides of all ages. Brides who love detail and quality, couture designs/gowns, and brides who want to tastefully accentuate their shape and curves will enjoy Matthew Christopher.

What are the price points of the Matthew Christopher gowns you will carry?

Strapless styles will be $2,390 – $3,790; styles with build-ups will be $2,740 – $4,140.
