My budget was $2000. I found "the one", and found out that it was closer to $4000. I ended up finding it for aprox $1800!! :)

    My budget was $1000. I found one that I really loved for $900! My mom is paying for the dress so that really helped out a lot.

    I have a pretty dumb question. I'm pretty short, only 5' or 5'1 on a lucky day. If you don't buy a sample dress, do you still have to send it in to get hemmed, or do they make it for your length? I see a lot of dresses with beautiful details at the bottom, but that would be gone by the time alterations are done.

      What if they're not sample ones, and you actually order it?

        where in alberta do you live that you got alterations for $90?  I live in Calgary and I hate that just hemming your dress looks like it typically runs you $150-200!

          My dress was even made to order based on my measurements, and they stated explicitly that the "made to order" doesn't include the hem of the dress...so even if you get a dress made for your measurements...you still have to go and get it hemmed.  I personally think it's just a money grab seeing as how alterations can cost so much!

            Im wearing the Mikealla 1406 and spent around $1400 on the dress ( I added the buttons on the back for an extra $100). Love my dress its more than I wanted to spend but worth every penny:)

              I went shopping with my mom thinking I would spend about $200 for a dress because I want to have a pair of $1200 Jimmy Choo does. Well, I ended finding a custom dress at Miosa Couture, a local dress maker/designer, including all alterations for $2000. I found knock off Badgley Mischka Ginnie shoes at Off Broadway Shoes for $59. I'm borrowing pearl jewelry and wearing my grandmothers fur stole. I need a "something blue."

              I went in without one, just looked at the cheapest dresses I could find at the shops that I liked, but then realized it was worth spending some money for a nice dress


              Lol, especially after my FMIL told me to stop being so cheap!
