Originally my mom was going to purchase my dress, but then I fell in love with a dress that was way out of my budget, lol. So it ended up that I paid for one third, my fiance paid for one third, and my parents paid for one third.
Who paid for your dress

I paid for my own dress. I didn't expect anyone to help us. We are paying for everything ourselves.

I was in a sticky situation because this is actually my second marriage, and to top it off, shortly before my FI proposed my father was diagnosed with cancer. So, my family didn't want to even talk about the wedding, they would seem interested, but then turn it around. Once he got the free and clear after his surgery, my mom showed some more interest again. I got my mom excited about the dress by trying on her old dress and the two of us cutting it up and deciding that I would use parts of her dress on mine (since hers was falling apart anyway) We went to a dress shop together so I could try stuff on for her and in the end we picked the same one, I bought it used online, and FI chose to pay me back for it because he wanted to. BTW, my parents didn't pay for my first dress either, it was a gift from my ex's father who was the director of a fashion show for a couture wedding gown designer in Italy. I'm actually trying to sell that one now, it's absolutely gorgeous, just can't see myself ever wearing it again.

My parents paid for my dress and they are paying for the majority of the wedding. There are some things that I just go ahead and buy but I know that my parents would pay for it if I needed them to.

FI and I are paying for the wedding ourselves so I originally had planned to pay for my dress myself. I asked my mother to help and she offered up about $500 and then out of the blue my G-ma told me she would like to help out and offered another $500. I was so excited and felt so relieved. Now I don't have to worry about coming out of pocket for my own dress. Should be less than $1000 with alterations.

Myself and my fi paid for 75% of the dress. My dad gave me $ for the deposit.

i paid for my dress myself, my mom contributed about 10% actually. i know if she could afford it she would have paid for the whole thing. but alas, i am just happy she is paying for herself to come to my wedding!

I had all intention of paying for my own dress. I found the perfect dress and took my mom to show here and while I went to the washroom she payed for my dress! She told me she had been saving for awhile so she could suprise me and pay for my dress for me!
