I had prepared my Fi by telling him I would spend no more than $1500. I bought mine for $1092 which included having the dress ordered for my own hollow to hem length. The rest of it fits like a glove so I don't intend on doing any alterations.

 

Because I'm under the budgeted price I believe I deserve a new pair of Manolos....

rofl.gif I like the way you think!

My dress was $918 before tax. I also ordered an A-Line Slip for $39 (-10% discount), and got a veil for free. The grand total (tax here = 8.25%) was $1,031.74

I actually just got my dress for $100! I really lucked out! It fits me perfect except for the length (i'm 5'4 and it probably fits a 5"7 person) and I plan to either flip flop it or go barefoot. But it's all good, I'm not planning to alter it since it's just the two of us and I'll only be wearing it for 30 min. Yay!!!

What I want to know is where did everyone that found their dress for under $1000 find their dresses. I had originally set a budget of under $1000 but every single shop I went to for the exception of David's Bridal had dresses on average from $1000 to $5000. I even had a lady at one shop ask me what my budget was and I told her under $1500 and she laughed at me and told me I would be lucky to find anything under $2000.

 

I found my dress for $1200 and I thought I had done pretty good comparing the prices I was seeing at shops. Where do you find dresses for under $1000 other than ebay or consignment?

Hmm...weird. I went to 15 different shops in 3 provinces (I'm Canadian) and most of the bridal shops had tons of dress for $1500 or less...and these were Maggie Sottero, Sophia Tolli, and Pronovias dresses.

The only city I shopped in was Houston and that's strange because I don't really consider Houston an expensive city.

I actually got mine online. It was $299 before taxes. I got it yesterday and I think it beautiful. Needs alittle alteration. But no big deal. Its a Maggie knock off.
