      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 ended up finding my dream dress (Allure Bridals) on the clearance rack for $625, marked down from $1300!

            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 love the back and the hemline details the best....never thought I would be SO girly!

                    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!
