wow, i'm so impressed the majority bough their dress under the $1,000 range!

 

My dress by Rivini cost me $5,940---just under my $6,000 budget. I set my budget for $6,000 because I was originally going to buy 2 dresses. But when I fell in love with 1 dress, I decided to sacrifice another dress so I could get my dream dress. =)

 

I've always dreamed of wearing designer and couture for my wedding.

 

I am wearing 2 veils that cost me close to $1,000 for both.

 

No shoes and accessories yet... yikes!!! oh well... you only do it once. i'd rather have a big bill at the end than a lifetime of regrets.

I'm curious to know what an almost $6,000 dress looks like, will you please post pics of it? I bet it looks and feels amazing on!

Hi! The average designer dress is actually right around the range of the dress i bought. i will definitely post pictures once my dress comes in.

 

i tried searching for pictures on the designer's site but it's not up yet. i bought my dress from a trunk show so it hasnt hit the shops yet.

 

i wasn't looking for a $6,000 dress... i just happened to fall in love with a dress that cost $6,000 =/

 

it's a Rivini Couture =)

I bought an Alfred Angelo gown for under $500. I wanted some color, so it has fuschia on the top, bottom and corset laces. I love it, but I had no intention of spending a ton of money on a dress that i will wear only twice

Wow...I wanted simple and ended up with more elaborate than I wanted, but my dress was on sale and was about $350!!! That is also because I didnt want a train for a beach wedding. With undergarments it was close to $600. I got basically what I wanted and for me, I didnt see the differences between the much higher end stuff, but thats just me. I am kind of the anti bridezilla and really want to keep cost down. My veil was over 100 but I dont recall how much.

I definitely also wanted simple...and then the woman who was helping me try on dresses was like "oh try this one...it's sort of like ones you're looking at..."

 

So I did, and I almost cried when I put it on! It's SO not a DW dress, but I don't care. LOL. I bought it almost three years ago anyways, when we first got engaged. Then we just kept running into roadblocks that were keeping us from having the ceremony - until now! I bought it with the intention of having a garden wedding.

 

*sigh* I still love it though. I'm still going to wear it, and who cares! It's my day!

I bought my dress in February for my December wedding..I got it for $300, plus $60 for the sash. I loved it at the time, but as the wedding drew nearer I was freaking out and thought I should get a more "destination" wedding dress! Luckily my friends helped me calm myself, and I ended up wearing it, and I absolutely loved it! It was a simple, but more traditional dress. With alterations at $65, I came in under my $500 budget!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
