How Much to Spend on "The" Dress!??
Posted 04 September 2009 - 11:47 PM
Girlfriends of mine have spent $4000+ on dresses in the past....and I do love the dress I did find that is a Jim Hjelm, I just think, seriously...that price seems crazy! Then I also think...well its your wedding dress...??
What I am getting at is how did you ladies justify the cost of your dress and what did you think was feasible to spend?

I set my budget for $1000.00 but ended up spending twice as much as that, knowing full well that I would have to pull in some serious overtime to be able to pay it off when the time came. I did, and it was SOOOO worth it for me.
I don't think that there is anything wrong with spending a small fortune on your wedding dress provided that you won't go into serious debt for something that you will wear for one day (or two if you are having an AHR).
I have watched a bride walk down the aisle in a dress that cost no more than $100.00 and on the other side of the spectrum, been to a wedding where the gown cost over $10,000.00 (and believe me, she could afford it!)... Anyway, I guess what I am trying to say is that if it is within your budget to get the Jim Hjelm that you have fallen in love with...then there is no reason to have to justify spending that money on the dress of your dreams!

Are you aware of designer Maggie Sottero? And her ever more LUXE line, Sottero & Midgley?
Here is a pic of my dress (Sottero & Midgley RSM1038 ), which I love more than I have ever loved ANY article of clothing....and for the low price of $1300.00! Not only is it my dream, but my mother said it was HER perfect vision of what I would wear for my wedding, whether it was in Jamaica or not! I adore it!!!!
It's more glamorous than I ever could gave imagined!
Here is ME in the same dress (the sample was a 6 and I am a 12 so please excuse any misfittings here):
And the DRAMATIC back of the dress which I adore!
And then there's the Maggie hairpiece, which matches the gown EXACTLY!
ALL THIS GLORIOUS-NESS FOR LESS THAN $2000? TOTALLY DO-ABLE!!!!
