    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!

          My dress was regularly $599, and I got it on sale (discontinued) for $450. Alterations will be less than 100. woo-hoo!!!

            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!
