My dress was 1500, but the shop I went to includes alterations, which I thought was great. It was also the first dress I liked right away - The next 2 I liked were $3600 and $4600 - way more than I wanted to spend!

Mine came to $750 after taxes. I didn't want to spend any more than $1000, but I found this dress and had no idea how much it was. When I went to inquire about it at my bridal shop, I was SO pleased to to find out it was only $650!! :o)

 

I can't imagine spending oodles and oodles of money on a dress I'm only going to wear once (well, twice since I'll wear it at our at home reception as well).

I just bought mine, a Jade Daniels. One shop had it priced at $998 and the other at $1398, the second store priced match and i got it! So after tax, alterations, accessories and shoes I should be able to stay under $1500 which is what i was thinking! :)

I ordered my dress at one of the discount bridal stores (where you don't get the help of a personal sales person) for $525.  The sticker price was $618 but they were having a15% off sale on a few styles of that designer at the time.  The sale did pressure me into ordering earlier than I had planned, but so far I still love my choice.  The sticker had a "compare at" price of $927, but I don't know if that is real or just a number to make you feel good about your "discount".  I had set $1000 as my limit for the sales price of the dress, knowing that tax, alterations, and undergarments could cause the price to rise closer to $1500.  I am happy that everything will be under $1000 for the dress I chose because my fiance doesn't understand about about a girl and her wedding gown so $1500 would have been a tough pill for him to swallow.

My dress was $299 on sale online from David's Bridal.  My original goal was to be under $1,000 and believe me, I tried on a million dresses.  I even almost bought one for $800 that a salesperson talked me into being the one.

 

But isn't it funny - this one dress online kept popping in my head.  I could never get it out.  It was online only, though, which meant I had to order it withOUT trying it on and that was the only reason I never bought it. 

 

One day, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give the dress a go, anyway.  I am SO glad I did, because it was THE dress.

My dress with taxes but without alterations was $1400.  Unfortunately, it is too big so I imagine alterations will be a couple hundred bucks but it will all be worth it.  I absolutely love my gown.

    • 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.
