$0 :o) It was my mom’s! I did spend $300 on alterations though.

My dress was $480 including taxes but excluding alternations. I got it a David’s Bridal.

Yes, my dress was $300. I found it on Craigslist. A Bridal Shop was clearing out inventory. I had previously found it in a Boutique for almost $1000 (on sale). My alterations will be about $120.

I bought my maggie sottero gown off ebay for $425 including shipping!

I haven’t purchased it yet, but the store I tried the dress on in California was selling it for $575.  I got in touch with stores here in NYC and the lowest quote I have so far is $450.

The line is Venus bridal, and my next step is calling around the vendors who sell it in my area and getting prices.  Seems pretty reasonable though.

Mine was $412 including crinoline and tax from Brides Against Breast Cancer.

Alterations were free, thanks to the talented ladies in the wardrobe department of the show I was working on at the time.

Me!  $67 at a vintage store.  Though I’ll probably need to spend around another $100 to replace some of the lace.

I paid $250 (plus$25 shipping) for my Maggie off preownedweddingdresses.com.  It was a sample dress that hadn’t been worn.  🙂

I just couldn’t justify spending $700 for a dress that I couldn’t even try on in my size and that wasn’t returnable.  I had tried on a few of similar style and I love my dress!

Didn’t know when I tried it on but my dress was a $99 DB special.  They didn’t have my size in stock so the sales lady called & found it at another store (they can do that, btw), I bought it via phone & paid $25 for 2 day shipping.

The alterations came to $225 for hemming, taking in & bustle.

 

I love the dress, it now fits perfectly & I feel like I scored.

About $335, plus $100 for the veil, $40 for shoes and about $25 for accessories. So, about $500 for the whole shebang!
