LOL that show makes me so envious about dresses too.  I feel your pain. 

What I’m NOT envious of?  The amount of $ a lot of those girls shell out on a dress.  Nice to look at though.

I watched last night too!  They have really lovely dresses on the show, but you have to remember they pay thousands upon thousands of dollars for them.  I am always floored when I hear the bride’s price point!   I think your dress is equally beautiful, and no one on your wedding day will be like “oh, why didn’t she pick the Maeve dress instead?”  I’m sure you will look stunning… and for 1/3 or 1/4 or even 1/16(!) of the dress prices at Kleinfeld!  🙂

your dress will look very elegant – whether you decide to take off the beading or not (I agree with you to take it off though). It’s a very flattering dress. And in the end it’s the bride who makes the dress… In the same time I understand why you’re “hating the show”. I went through the same doubting and now, after the wedding, I’m convinced that my dress was the best combination of the style I wanted, at the price I wanted.

I’ve watched the show as well. It’s pretty entertaining. I find some of the choices the brides make to be pretty unfortunate…esp. for that amount of money.

Did you see the episode where the girl was trying on a $20,000 dress?!? It was gorgeous, but I could never justify spending that much on a dress for one day.

Ah, another POB lover like me! I saw your other dress though and it is just as beautiful. Honestly! What matters most is that YOU feel good in it!

That is actually me in the second dress you pictured. So funny to stumble upon myself when checking my daily blogs. Lol. Anyhoo, I am selling this NEW Piper (Priscilla of Boston, Vineyard Collection) on preownedweddingdresses.com for $1,999 OBO if anyone is interested. Take a look!

Watching that show has made me so want a Pnina Tornai gown.  Way too much but way to pretty!

"Maeve" was my Wedding Dress and it was so crazy to see it on another girl especially on tv!  I wasn’t planning to spend as much as I did, but if I can offer any advice, try to cut the budget in other areas so you can have the dress of your dreams.  "Maeve" is worth every penny!!

I’ve already bought my dress (and currently have it hanging in my closet) but still watch ‘Say Yes to the Dress’. Half out of making sure my dress is the ‘one’ and half for laughs.. Some of the girls on that show are just TOO much to handle. I’m a budget bride and anything over $2k for a dress sounds outrageous to me. I would rather have an awesome honeymoon then a ridiculously expensive dress that no one at my wedding will remember. My future hubby would find me beautiful in any dress, whether it be $50 or $5k. 🙂

That shows crazy.  It makes me sick to see how those bridal consultants get the brides to double the budget that they initially had when they walked in there.  “Oh, you can always cut your spending on something else if you really want this dress and it’s you dream dress”.

That show just represents the whole mentality of so many wedding vendors.  I really hate that aspect of wedding planning!  “It’s your big day, you should get your dream dress and completely go against your budget.  If it’s the one, it’s the one, you have to get it!”

So shallow if you ask me!

amarie– i agree with a lot of the things you said! how can anyone justify spending over 2 grand on a DRESS? It is a dress! And its a dress you only wear for one day! That said (I’m not even engaged yet– I’m so bad!!!) I found a dress I thought I lvoed for 500 dollars. I was like– great, I will be a super budget bride! But then someone posted about the Pronovias Gironde and I want it so bad. I can’t stand the idea of not having it. And it’s over 2K, so who knows how my own story will pan out.
