Horrible! Rude, rude, rude! They will charge you for alterations they don't do, and act like you are crazy when you ask them to fix what you paid for to be fixed. My Mom bought her dress for my brother's wedding there and paid a LOT of $$$

I had a great experience at Christopher's. He was nice and very helpful. I told him my budget and he helped me get something I liked within that budget. I did make an appointment. His shop like most nice bridal shops ask for an appointment

Christophers is a wonderful shop for getting the attention you need when shopping for a special occasion. I was most pleased to have been able to make an appointment for my daughter to look for dresses. It would have been irritating to be constantly interrupted by other shoppers. Christopher himself is a dear and made us feel very welcome. He also has great taste and told my daughter which dresses flattered her body type. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone who is looking for a special dress.

The Bridal gowns @ Christophers must be made of gold. My daughter & I do not live in Gainesville. She is getting married next summer & we are just starting our search for that perfect dress. We drove to Gainesville on a Wednesday for the sole purpose of going to Christophers. I believe the only bridal store in Gainesville. Imagine our surprise when the door was locked. Oh, their closed all day on Wednesday. No problem, we would make another trip. We checked the times of operation ( which is posted on the front door ) so as to not make this same mistake again. After the times are listed, it says in small print _or_ by appoinment. We made our return on Friday. There were no other customers in the store. The lady asked if she could help us & I replied that we were wanting to look at bridal gowns. She quickly let me know that you could only do that by appointment. I explained to her that we were from out of town & would just like to look at what they had. She said that she was sorry but that he had an appointment due in at any time now. I asked again, can we just look. No, was her reply, theirs only one dressing room up stairs & the appoinment is due any time. Would we like to make an appointment. My daughter asked when that would be. The sales lady says, She would check her book for next week. We were there before 2:00 pm. Not knowing our schedule for next week, I would have to call her back, if we had time. Oh, she was gracious enough to tell us that some of their less formal dresses were on a rack towards the front of the store. We looked at the limited selection & chose a couple to try. In search for a dressing room, we were shown a room that was about 5 x 5 square. I tried to go in and help her with the dress but quickly realized that the room was to small, so I took the dresses off the hangers outside the room & handed them to her & then slide in to zip them up. After trying these dresses she was very hot in this unventilated closet. Not to mention that the gentleman ( I presume is Christopher )is standing outside the door when you open & close the door as she is getting dressed. I know she had to feel uncomfortable with that. Cause I certainly did. Have I mentioned that this so called appointment has yet to show up. We were there for at least 30 minutes to 45 minutes. The only customers the whole time. Not customers any longer. In this economy, I can not understand a business that refuses to allow a potential customer to view their merchandise. Like some of the other reviews. Unless you are one of the elite that actually do get to walk up those lovely stairs to view the golden gowns.

I went in with my friend (who herself was a frequent customer) because we both needed dresses for an event. My friend received great service as soon as they recognized her.......I was never even greeted. They brought her dress after dress while I had to go fetch each of mine myself.

They have amazing gowns, but they were so rude to me I would never go back.

Pros: Gorgeous dresses

Cons: Rude staff

Christopher has some of the most beautifull dresses I've seen. He hand-picks each style from fashion shows in NYC and I have to say, he has amazing taste. Prices are somewhat high, but the beauty and quality of his formal wear is unmattched.

I recommend visiting Christopher's if you're looking for top-of-the-line formal wear. However, MAKE AN APPOINTMENT with Christopher's before you arrive.

I have been going to Christophers for almost ten years now for all of my formal event needs. He has dressed every lady in town for the important events in their lives and I would NEVER go anywhere else! The dresses are fantastic, the service is wonderful, and the workmanship is even better. They know me by name and I have never had a problem with anything once I put it into Christopher's hands. He even did my wedding! The only time you need an appointment is if you want to look at wedding dresses and of course Christopher is the one you want to help you out. When I didn't like anything in the store he MADE my dress from scratch. Every bride wants one on one service and Christopher's is the only place I know of where you can play dress up as the only bride in the store.

My friend and I were both planning our weddings that were to be only a month apart. We were both shopping for gowns and when we walked in we could hardly get a few feet inside the door before they told us that we could only view the wedding dresses by appointment. They had an awful attitude, were extremely snooty, and did not even offer to suggest a time that we could schedule to come back... needless to say neither of us went back and they lost two potential sales!!! Would NEVER go back here or recommend to my worst enemy!

I drove to Gainesville from out of town, specifically to go to Christopher's because a friend knew of the place. I walked inside, and there were NO customers - not one single person, and yet the girl at the desk tells me "sorry, but you have to make an appointment to see the bridal gowns with Christopher, he's the only one who can do them."
I explained that we came from out of town and asked if there was a time that day when he would be available, but she said no, Christopher had "some things" to do. AND ... I couldn't even LOOK at the dresses!!! Needless to say, I won't be back.

I needed to be fitted for a bridesmaid dress before the wedding and they could never accomodate my schedule since I work and live out of town. When I tried to call and schedule an appointment, Christopher was just rude, "I have bride's that need to be fitted the rest of the day." Our dresses had been ordered for several months and did not arrive until 3 weeks before the event. Just be prepared for a snooty atmosphere and even worse behavior!" I would never recommend this place!!!
