    I bought a dress on consignment and talked them down to 250 from 4something.  It was a custom made dress, never worn, that I only need to have the bust altered on.  I’m one of those people that lusts over fancy dresses but am way to practical to spend on one with tons of house stuff going on.

    Mine was about $1800 but then I got the optional shoulder strap and 3″ extra length so it was about $2100 in the end.

    $500 brand new. It was my exact size, and I bought it new online versus $1100 in the stores.

    I bought a designer Vera Wang used from a bride for $3,200 (original price $5000) and then added $1,000 of alterations to it.

    Just shy of $5000, made to measure.  I’m being spoilt rotten by my parents!

    500 on the nose, came with a complimentary veil of my choice, from preownedweddingdresses.com (was a sample, NWT). Retail was $2300 IIRC.
