I asked the same type of question about everyone's overall budget. I figured, if you can ask a question like this anywhere, it's here on this forum!

Hey Kash- the beauty of this forum is, you can pretty much ask what you want and say what you want. If we don't like it or think you're rude, the same applies- we'll tell you!

I wouldn't worry about it, those that don't want to share won't and for the rest of us, we're just happy to be able to help someone else out...

My advice- find what makes you feel beautiful, but set your budget ahead of time. Once I found this dress, I would have paid for it no matter how much it cost, I loved it so much- luckily it was cheap!

You are all fantastic - thank you so much for your help!

 

Tasha - I love that you found your dress on eBay!

 

So what I've learned is that there are great dresses at every price range and it all just depends on what looks good on ME... Though I probably won't be trying on any $10K dresses...

 

Was the sample sale at Saks all sizes or just tiny sizes? It seems like wedding dresses run super small so I doubt they'll have my size in a sample... unless they carry one of each size for try-ons.

 

I'm definitely going to check out Weddingbee and Preownedweddingsdresses and EBay - any other recommendations?

I had originally set a budget of $2,000 for my gown.

 

I ended up falling in love with one that was retailing for $700 - $770. I ended up ordering the dress from RK Bridal in New York. They will beat any on-line price quote by 5%. I felt comfortable ordering from them, because they are listed on the manufacturer's website as an authorized retailer. The lowest quote I was able to find online for my dress was $499, so I ended up buying the dress for $475 with no tax because I live outside of NY. Also, there was no shipping cost, per my original on-line quote from another retailer.

 

RK bridal was quick to reply and confirm my order. I ordered the dress a few weeks ago and it should be here by the beginning of February (assuming all goes well). :)

 

 

Here is a link to my dress:

Good luck finding the dress of your dreams!!

yeah, there is another site - I think it's bridecouture.com that sells sample gowns for cheaper. And of course J Crew, H&M, Nordstrom, Saks & NM all carry bridal too. Just think outside of the box a little!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
