@Kyliewylie Lol. My mom told me the same thing. My budget was originally $500 so I could keep it under $1000 with alterations, but fell in love with a $1100 dress, so that went out the window.

I'm trying to keep my budget around $500-1000. I haven't bought mine yet.  David's Bridal has a lot of options around this price point.

    I havent set a budget yet but since I am only wearing the dress once it won't be too much.

    mine has come out to $1500 - I had budgeted 12-1500 so i'm ok with this...

     

    I was pretty good with my fittings in ONLY trying dresses on in my range. I made that clear to the shop when I came in. That way I didnt fall in love with something way over my budget....

     

    I was also between 3 dresses that I loved but once I tried on THE ONE my best friend and mom's reaction did it for me...

    I thought that I'd have to spend a fortune on a wedding dress (I've watched WAY too many episodes of say yes to the dress).  I went to look at dresses back in February and I found THE DRESS, but the problem is that my wedding won't be for a while so I had to leave it.  My dream dress was $899.99 at David's Bridal.  The veil was I think about $120.00.  So I set a budget of $1,200.00, for the dress including accessories and the veil.

    Oh what a relief to hear dresses aren't as much as I was thinking!! I haven't set a budget yet..I just know I don't want to spend a fortune on something I'll wear once..
    I'm going dress shopping this month..I've been putting it off because my boobs are huge as my baby is only 4 months old and still nursing...but it's getting to be crunch time I guess so ill at least go look.. wish I didn't have to buy a dress so soon because I know my body is changing back to pre - pregnancy and what if I like it now but hate it by March..

    Oh yes the post pregnancy chest :)  Does SK have a David's Bridal?   They have very budget friendly dresses. I almost didn't go to them because I was worried they would be cheap looking, but they totally are not!

     

    I ordered mine in early May and it took 2.5 months to come in.  They had told me 3.     On the other hand, they told me my BM dresses will take 14 weeks, so we shall see.   Not sure why so long?

I'm scared of being disappointed and not liking how I look in a wedding dress..

      The budget for the dress comes down to first look at what you can afford and second to pay a bit more for a dress that you deeply fall in love with it...I have visited so many boutiques and nothing is working for me :( I am almost for one but it is $1,700 and not sure if that really makes me feel I love it to pay that much...I bet if I was super in love with it I would not think twice. i am so confused that will end up ordering online with measurements ...very confused.
