    I paid 200 for mine. I had it custom made by a china vendor and it turned out beautiful and it saved me a TON!

    My dress was $1650 before tax, but my mom did some bargaining and it ended up being about $1600 all said and done (before alterations, veil, etc.). Go mom!

    Originally it was $1600, but we got it during a trunk sale so it was $1300 +tax 🙂

    Under $650.  Couture and the designer I’ve dreamed about.  After watching “Yes To the Dress” I thought I would never be able to purchase my dress.  TG for online.

    $1550, but this included sash and veil. I have no clue how much my veil cost by itself, sorry 🙂

    $530, and my mom surprised me by buying it for me! I’d actually planned on spending around $1000, but I happened to fall in love with a cheaper dress.

    $825 for Pronovias at the Flagship store.  I can’t complain!

    This is the most nerve racking thing about dress shopping. I haven’t even begun to look as I am not looking forward to sticker shock or falling in love with a dress not in my price range. Frankly, even if I could afford the dress, a part of me thinks that I can do something else with that money than pay for overpriced draped fabric. 

    For those who purchased online, is there a post where brides (like me) can peruse the online dresses on recommendation? Has there been a post that lists the best online dress shopping sites?
