“I am head over heels in love with a Matthew Christopher gown (Sofia) that retails for well over 3 grand. The fit, the detailing, the sharp details on the lining. ALL OF IT! Definitely doesn’t fit into my budget of 10-15 hundred.”
This gown is gorgeous! The “Sofia” is a trumpet-style gown with lots of beautiful details, including a lace overlay and silk chiffon banding. The gown is fitted in all the right places for a flattering silhouette. The banding pattern is particularly unique, so many of my suggestions for you today focus on the lace overlay and the silhouette, but I did sneak in a couple gowns that feature banding or geometric lines as well. Let’s see what we’ve found for $1000-$1500!
Impression Bridal, Style: 10269, $1,000-$1,499 at Impression Bridal Stores (check website for locations)
There you have it; my selections for a Matthew Christopher “Sofia” look-alike under $1500. If you would like even more suggestions, The Broke-Ass Bride featured this gown in a previous CAI/GOI post here. Additionally, fellow BAB blogger Lisa wrote a CAI/GOI post recently on the Watters “Nyra” gown, which shares similar characteristics to “Sofia” above. I hope we found something you love, dear reader. Keep those requests coming! Happy shopping!
