Ok bees, fess up! How much was your wedding dress INCLUDING alterations?
Include a pic with designer, stlye, etc! (Hope this doesn’t offend anyone but the wedding industry does a great job of concealing prices from us, and I’m so curious how much your dress was!!)

$1235 before alterations. Don’t know how much it’ll be afterwards, but I can’t imagine it being over $1600, so I picked that poll option. All I’ll need is a bustle and a couple little “pinches” here and there.
Mine’s the Casablanca 2072. The sample was about a size too big and waaay too long.

My wedding dress and veil came to a total of $1300 with tax, the gown itself was on sale for $950. I still have not gotten my alterations, and slip. So I’m guessing this will add another $200 to my total.

Mine was custom-made for around $2400 (£1500).

I’m not sure how much the dress itself was, but I know it was on sale and we got the dress, veil, and crinoline for $1,400 before alterations. 🙂

It was $1,099 in the bridal salon, but I ordered it from ebridalsuperstore.com for $664. I then paid $325 to have the alterations above. To do “basic” alerations it would have been $150, the extra cost was because I dramatically changed the shape of the dress.

Dress, rush fee, minimal alterations (I only needed a bustle) came out to just under $1600.
At the salon the day I picked it up…

My dress is custom, was just about $1200 from Jasmine’s Bridal Shop. If I wouldn’t have upgraded fabric and craftsmanship it probably would’ve cost closer to $700. A similar dress I saw in a bridal salon was just over $2700

Dress was $2,200.. Haven’t had alterations yet – but I don’t expect it to be over $200-$300.

Oops I voted without reading. mine was 1600 before alterations which is what i voted for. It better end up being under 2000 with!

Mine was $695. Haven’t picked it up yet so I don’t know what kind of alterations I’ll need, but I’m having a friend’s mom do them so shouldn’t be more than $100.
