How much was your wedding dress???

Recommended Posts

My dress cost about $1900 but that also included all the alterations. I narrowly avoided a surcharge for special sizing since I am very small (how about a break for the little people - we use less fabric!) by my measurements matching their smallest standard size. I was hoping to spend less than $5000 so I had no guilt over the price tag.

I really don't want to spend more than $1000. I'm planning to begin my search next month so I'm going to try to stay away from anything more than that.

Amy I really think you can do that. There are tons of beautiful dresses. I was kind of overwhelmed. Luckily for me, nearly half of them looked awkward on me. But they were still beautiful hanging up!

Mine was $500 with free alterations, it came to $650 with tax and veil. I only wanted to spend $300 since I didn't plan to wear it twice. I honestly didn't care too much about the dress unlike most brides - I didn't set foot in a dress shop until 4 months prior to the wedding. If it was too late I was going to buy a white dress from Neiman Marcus - they have an affordable informal wedding section.

 

I also didn't feel it was "the one". I went to one bridal shop and bought the 3rd one I tried on - same day. It was formal on top and beachy on the bottom so I said "that will do". I loved it the day of and it worked and I haven't looked at it since I came back...but I stare at hubby everyday :o)

my budget was $1000 to $1500......i didn't look at price tags until i found the one i loved. that could have been a bad mistake if my dress ended up being way over my budget. but luckily, it wasn't...it was $1500...so still in my budget! i have thought about spending that much money on a dress, but i know i love it and can't wait for my FI to see me in it!

 

i'm doing a TTD but had to schedule it the day before the wedding since juan is not available after....so i'm on the hunt for a cheaper dress! plus i just don't know how i could trash my $1500 dress.......it would be so sad!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
