oh geez, you’re going to get ballparks from $100 to $6000

Can you give us an idea of what you’re shooting for? Mine is a Maggie Sottero and I paid $400 for it

I don’t really feel comfortable telling people how much my dress cost anymore (I did on another thread though)…some people just get the wrong idea! But I’ll tell you this, mine cost more than $10K. It’s by Oscar de La Renta.

I love that pic @ejs4y8!!  How cute are you and your hubby?!  🙂

@chaotic bliss:  I bought mine from a girl who unfortunately had her wedding called off.  I paid $800 for a dress that retails about $2200… so I definitely got a great deal.   🙂

chicagobride's dress

 

My dress is a silk charmeuse bias cut sheath with pleating at the bust and waist by Elizabeth Fillmore.  It’s an old style from 2005 I think.  As of May this year they were still selling it in stores for $3700.  I found it (a little beaten up and in need of a lot of TLC–which will obv. up the cost) for $1000.

I paid $1,000 for mine (CND) and it is a Jasmine Bridal dress.  I can’t wait to wear it 🙂

mine was from Alfred Angelo. I LOVE it. it was 1200, but i got a 300. discount. However, my alterations will cost 500 bux which blows. so the final price is 1400.  That’s through their seamstress. They said if i want i can do it through someone else, but i’ll have to pay to have it steamed, if i go through their person, they’ll do that for free.. eh.. idk.. i’ll prolly end up using their person.. boo!

@ Babilu: I feel you on shuddering at telling people the cost.  You know what I think is kinda great about your dress (not that you would ever have/want to do this) but you could chop the dress and make it a cocktail dress as well.  Sometimes with couture, I find that they have the transformative quality that other dresses don’t.  So your 10K purchase price may actually be less when you think about cost per wear.  LOL!  And I am totally blowing up your head today!  Love that dress.

mine was $550. it’s not a “wedding dress,” it’s just an ivory dress from a boutique.

@Babilu: don’t give a second thought about what people think about how much you spent on your dress…its YOUR dress! Its gorgeous and you are going to love it forever!

So many people want to judge because they either think you spent way too much or way too little on your dress.  And if they can’t judge because it’s what they thought it would be, they’ll still find something to nitpick.  People just like to nitpick.  But you know what?  We’re the bride, we’re the one that has to pay for it, we’re the one that has to wear it, and so we can do what makes us happy.  Tongue out

I love the Oscar De LaRenta. I think if you feel fabulous (and you look fabulous) and you can afford it, then so be it. My is an Elizabeth Fillmore that I bought secondhand for $2000
