      I voted 1000-2000 range. I told myself i was not going to spend more than $750 for a dress I would only wear once. I was very naive, wasn't I! I found a dress I loved for $900, not to over budget. But wait, it was made of satin and very very heavy. The sales lady said she could have it made of taffeta, very light weight fabric. Wow that sounded perfect. Now how about making the train a little shorter. Now my $900 is $1300 OTD. Almost twice what I had budgeted! Aren't I a bargain shopper. Oh well, I love the dress. Now if it will just come in.

        I am hoping to stay in my budget of 1500, including alterations.

          I never really thought about how much all of this would cost... of course every dress that I love is 1500-ish, plus alterations, + tiara + possible veil + shoes!! it adds up so fast!

                I really fot fustrated trying on dresses at shops, my friend dragged me out several times at the beginning of the summer.. It was hot and ugly, I made her buy me a glass of wine to calm me down after.
                I went online found a dress and I am having this lovely lady who comes with amazing recommendations make my dress... I am laughing $210 with the material included she works at fabricland and is getting the fabric for her employee cost.
                The dress would have costed $500 online.Photo

                  My budget for my dress was 1500 but I ended up spending $1800. I think my alterations are going to cost approximately 700.

                    I plan on not spending more than 1,000.00 but I guess when I finally do start to serious look that may change

                      From the very beginning I wanted to spend $5,000 on my dress. I guess it's because around that time I started watching Say Yes To The Dress and the only dresses they were showing were in that range.

                      My budget has since dropped to no more than $3,500 since my dad will be paying for my dress. Now with everyone's posts about the prices and budgets, I don't know if maybe my price is set too high. I want a very pretty dress and thought you had to spend at least 2 grand to get it.

                      Since I'm starting my wedding dress shopping in about a week I really need to get it together. Thanks for everyone's input.
