I like that i found this b/c i had guilt over how much i spent on my dresses.  I really did not want to spend over 1,000 for both (one for Jamaica one for AHR). Luckily alterations are included! Both dresses came to just under 2,000. I still have to get shoes a hair piece and jewelry.

When I started shopping I decided I wanted to keep it under 2k.  I found a couple dresses that I liked well under budget but unfortunately didn't get that 'this is my dress' feeling. Then I found my dress - 2100 w/ 10% at Kleinfelds complete with 'this is definitely my dress' feeling.  I wish i had spent less but oh well -- I've never spent anywhere near this on a dress and will never do it again!

My inital budget was $1000 for my dress.  I had all the money saved up and when I started looking my mom told me she would be paying for my dress, which I appreciate so much!  However, I knew even more then ever I needed to keep it under budget as I didn't want my mom to break the bank paying for my dress!  My dress ended up being $900 dollars, so underbudget by a little bit.

My dress budget was $1000 max, although I was hoping to spend much less. I tried to find some dresses for under $800 to leave room for alterations, but the one I fell in love with came out to be $985. And thankfully alterations will be free so I guess I did good on my budget. cheesy.gif

I budgeted $1000 for my dress, but ended up buying it from a consignment store for $700.  It already has a bustle and might not require any alterations, but I'm toying with the idea of adding cap sleeves or a halter.

My original budget was around 1800.  But then I knocked it up to 3k because I found a paloma that was perfect!  But when I tried it on, it just wasn't it.  Then I found my dress the enzoani fatima for 2600.  That dress knocked out even this 5k lazaro that had everything I wanted.  I'm glad I didn't buy it that day though because I found a cheaper version of it from enzoani's blue line.  So my dress actually ended up being 1600, but I spent another 300 on this awesome belt from enzoani!  So I pretty much stuck to my budget even though I went back and forth a bit.  So I'd say shop around for a designer's cheaper line because they come out with similar dresses.  The only difference between the 2 enzoanis was that the fatima had more tulle so it was a slightly fuller skirt (which can be easily fixed w/ a slip) and the dress I ordered add some pleating around the waist which I liked more than the fatima.

i wouldn't pay more than 500 for a dress  and i don't think it is worth it, even thought it is my wedding. as i think i would only wear the dress once. so i don't want to waste money on something that i will only used once.
