I am very curious about this because I was getting very frustrated browsing because I couldn’t find much that I loved for under the $1,000 ish range. However, I just found a stunning dress on etsy that I am currently having custom made for myself for, get this.. $80. Victory!
How much was your gown?

@MissBethany5: after taxes (13%) just under $900. I imagine i have another $300 in alterations. It’s from Db, white by Vera Wang (and if it goes on sale I might cry – I ordered and it came in in 10 days instead of the 22 weeks they told me)

Mine was $899. – without alterations. Seems like I will just need it hemmed though so hopefully not too much more!

Okay, so I will be the outlier here. I expect to spend around $5,000 (including alterations). Less would be great but I doubt it is going to happen. I am not willing to use Etsy or somewhere in China to make my dress – too much risk for me.

$550 for a Mori Lee at a Bridal Shop, alterations included and 10% off my bridesmaids dresses.

I got my Mori Lee for $516 after taxes. It’ll probably another $300 or so for alterations (hopefully less).

$650 pre-owned, very close fit with a bustle. Retails for ~$2400 and I would have needed a hem, etc.

$80! How awesome. Pic? 🙂
I spent $1110. Eep. I didn’t want to spend more than around $800 or $900, but I put my dress on and it was all over (the sales woman brought it to me even after I specified $1000 was my absolute limit…the dress was $1234 and they gave me 10% off). It was about $1200 with sales tax, and I’m budgeting $300 for alterations, and hoping it will be more like $150/$200.
I’m going to DIY my veil or wear my sister’s; I tried on a gorgeous veil at the dress shop, but I’m totally not paying $350 for a bit of tulle and lace! Even if it is Alencon…
