I’m quite clueless when it comes to prices for dresses…and I know the wedding industry is crazy. So, I found a brand new Alvina Valenta dress on sale for $1,000 (AV9051).
I have a really hard time wrapping my brain around spending so much on a dress, but I don’t want to look sloppy on my wedding day necessarily either. Is this a deal for this dress? Or can I find a decent dress for that price elsewhere?
Thanks so much!

I would say so…when i saw some prices for Alvina dresses (not your particular one) they were over 2k…where did you find the dress – website or bridal shop?

@TwoOneFive: That’s a nice price for a Valenta (generally retail for $1,500-$3,000).
You can also check out WeddingBee Classifieds, PreOwned, Oncewed, Tradesy, and WeddingWire for even better deals (esp. if you’re concerned about spending that much on a dress).

To me $1000 is not even a lot compared to how much some peoples dresses is….my cap is $1500 on a dress because I don’t want to spend too much. Watching SYTTD some people spend like thousands and thousands on a dress.
Sometimes to see prices for a dress and the retail cost of it I go to rkbridal.com

@Meant2bMrsC: I got it at a bridal shop. It was tailored incorrectly for someone else but fits me. So it is in great condition.

What shops are you all looking at for dresses? 🙂
