    I had already bought a dress from David's Bridal that was $350 -- very simple, classic A-line without a train -- and I thought I would be happy. OH, did I ever doubt myself, and I'm glad I did!

    I purchased my Sottero and Midley RSM1038 for just shy of $1100.00, and after the wedding in Jamaica itself, I plan to wear it again for my 1st dance at our AHR and then change into the gown I got at David's (which I am having shortened) for the remainder of the party! Add to that the $75 cheapie TTD gown I got off of eBay, and then I'll be all set!

      I voted $1000-$2000, my dress was $900 plus alterations.

        I got a gown for $900 off the rack, with alterations and cleaning being another $250 or so. Then I bought a cheap back-up dress from David's Bridal for $150 just in case something happened during travel or when the hotel steamed it.

        I didn't even try on gowns over $1,000 because I didn't want to spend that much on something that I was only going to wear once. I also wasn't looking for anything elaborate but more a classic A-line gown that looks more like a red carpet gown in ivory with beading than a huge wedding gown.

          My dress ended up being close to 1500 so it looks like i will be spending a bit more than I thought with alterations could be looking at 1800 or so.

            My dress cost 300€, which i think works out about 400 USD? That includes alteration, as the only one they had was European size 46. It's not a wedding dress though, I tried on heaps of expensive wedding dresses, and finally settled on a strapless chiffon purple cocktail dress, I feel much more like me in it!

                Well my dress was over 2001 so I voted in that category but I am happy with my dress. I knew it was the one the minute I put it on and it was well within my budget.

                  Almost every dress I've tried on has been between $1000 and $1500, not including tax or alterations. There were a few around the $800 range but they were older stock I think so had been reduced. I think that's basically the price range for the majority of gown designers in my city...I thought about driving across the border to New York or Vermont and probably saving a few hundred but I'd rather just have the convenience of finding something nearby. My budget is $2000.
