Grace Ormonde | Matthew Christopher Couture Wedding Gowns

Matthew Christopher at Little White Dress

I jumped at the opportunity to be at Little White Dress last Friday morning as wedding gown designer Matthew Christopher conducted a training session for the sales staff and prepared for the weekend’s trunk show. These last few months have been about partnering with Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine to show the world that Colorado not only has style, but is on the cutting edge of what is happening in the wedding industry.

To hear that a prominent dress designer would be spending time in Denver was an exciting opportunity. I more than anything wanted to hear Matthew speak about his work. I love hearing designer’s passion for their work, and Matthew Christopher does not disappoint!
If you are someone who (or know of a person) that cannot understand why you would pay a premium for a dress when there are perfectly suitable and affordable options out there, listen to Matthew speak about creating his dresses. His passion for making a woman feel beautiful is contagious. As if he didn’t have me at helping a woman feel beautiful on her wedding day, then he starts talking about the detailing of his dresses and how button location or stitching or lace placement can make or break the look of the dress. The designer in me was in the land of sunshine and happy faces!
I think the wedding industry in Colorado has a unique opportunity to utilize the platform of Grace Ormonde to show that we not only have style, but are attracting attention from the best in the industry.
“I think LWD has become a huge destination store for Colorado where girls come from all over from the midwest to visit their store. They are pulling in many many brides that are looking for couture gowns that they can not find in their state. ” –¬†Matthew Christopher

Jenny Packham at Little White Dress

Have you heard? The full Jenny Packham line is at Little White Dress this weekend!

It is hard to explain just how exquisite the bead work is on these dresses. The beautiful textures sparkle in the light. Her fabric selection drapes beautifully and feels phenomenal. I came home and told my husband it is a good thing we were married 8 years ago, before I was in the wedding industry…I could have walked out of LWD with a gown in a heart beat. I was even trying to figure out how I could turn some of the off-white gowns into cocktail attire….it could work with the right accessories? Right??

This last image is my favorite. A window shopping view of one of the Jenny Packham gowns. In black and white I think it shows off stunning bead work and elegant patterning. I love that her work is timeless and sophisticated. You could pull off a black-tie, city chic, or even country club wedding in any of the dresses.
