      Now the wedding dresses become more and more expensive, you can choose wedding dress at <a href="http://www.discount-dress.com/">Discount-Dress.com</a>, and you will choose the one which you favourite.

      I know this is an old thread but just wanted to share my dress buying experience.  I found my dress at the second bridal shop I went to.  My budget was $1,500.00 and I was looking at Pronovias dresses and knew that the shop would only have a couple dresses in that price range.  So I went with little hope I would find the one.  The shop was having their 2014 trunk show so they were going to be giving 10% percent off any dress bought that weekend.  After trying on about 10 dresses all in the $2,000 range nothing really did it for me and my mom.  Then came the last dress one I didn't even see on the racks but the consultant said she thought would work perfect for a destiantion wedding and for what I was looking for.  I tried it on and fell in love and the price was the cheapest of the 10 I tried on before it was $1,700.00 plus the 10% discount so it came out to a little over my $1,500.00 budget.  Then she threw on a awesome belt that looked like seashells and starfish and it completed the look.  The belt was $250.00 but I also got the 10% off that too.  So my total was around $1,800.00 with shipping.  Alterations are not included and that's an extra $500 flat fee which includes 3 fitting appointments and bustle.  They also gave me a beautiful garter as a gift so no need to look for one of those and I get a gift when I pick up my dress.  All in all my wedding dress will come out to $2,300.00 way more than I had planned on spending but so worth it.  Now I need to find a veil that won't break the bank and some killer shoes.  I also bought a afterparty/ttd dress for $450.00 at a sample sale so grand total of $2,750.00 for 2 dresses.  Hopefully I can find a veil and shoes for under $300 bucks and keep my budget for all my wedding attire at around $3,000.00.  Hope my finace doesn't kill me he can't understand why wedding dresses cost so much. lol :confused:

       

      My dress is a 2014 Pronovias - Land.

      Since I'm having two wedding ceremonies (one Catholic, one Hindu) I had to split my budget between two dresses, didn't want to go above $1K for both.

       

      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. 

       

      I bought my white dress for $700 and the Indian dress for $450, so I'll still be slightly over-budget but not as bad as I thought I would be. I know it's pretty standard pricing but the idea of spending $1000 or more on a wedding dress makes me cringe. The money I saved being frugal went straight to our $3K photographer!

      I had originally budgeted $1500 for the dress only but I ended up paying $799 for the dress and $150 for the veil. It was a sample gown which originally was at $900.

      Where did you manage to find a dress for $1200 in Canada? My big plan is to go to the US when it comes time for me to find something only because the prices here are so outrageous!!! Please share!!!!! lol

      There are a bunch of companies that do this.... The most reputable are Jasmines Bridal for anything with lace or beading.... And for more simple dresses dressilyme, carabridal and babyonline get good reviews. I would be careful going with a custom maker who hasn't got a lot of good reviews here or on weddingbees.
