    Haha @Kittyachi, I was going to say the same thing.  One person’s “ridiculous” is another person’s chump change.  Wink

    I bought what to me was a ridiculously priced ($1600) wedding gown but it was so worth it. I planned on getting a used dress cause I thought absolutly no one would know unless i tell them. Then I was thinking about getting a dress from online ($200) at lightinabox.com but once I had gone to a bridal shop and found “the dress” I couldn’t say no.

    Nope.  While it’s “one day” and it should be special and the bride should feel amazing, I think a dress that is uber costly is just redunkulous IMO.  While I could have paid more for my dress, I didn’t and I’m so happy with my choice and whatever the bride chooses she should be happy and comfortable with the purchase.

    nope – under 500. And to me, if you could buy a reasonably nice used car with the money, it’s too much for a one day dress.

    I briefly considered getting a 3200 Lazaro for about an hour and then came to my senses

    Yup, to me mine was ridiculously priced at 2800, but on the low end of gowns on that show. Some of those (particularly a 12K Pnina I saw recently) put my dress to shame! I can’t hate on that.

    Mine was under $500 also!  I think it all depends on the entire budget too and if someone is having a $30,000 wedding then spending $3,000 or so would be typical maybe—depends on the girl.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the dresses and there are some that make my dress look not as “bridal” but oh well.  My Fiance was also thrilled that I found the dress that fit me amazingly and I loved it and he was super happy I was so thrilled.  There is a dress in the current MS Weddings mag in an ad and my goodness it’s gorgeous, but haha, not happening.  😉

    It’s funny because I don’t ever spend a lot of money on clothes but for my wedding dress – that’s one thing that I wouldn’t bat an eyelash spending a couple grand on. I find it amusing that I will only buy jeans at Target because they are like $15 but I’ll spend thousands on a wedding dress. Whatever. It’s the one really expensive garment I will ever buy. Some people spend $300 on their jeans and only wear designer clothes and shoes. I feel like over the years of wearing inexpensive stuff, I get to have one splurge. And my splurge was like $3500, not even a hardcore splurge. Some people (at least here in NYC) have everyday outfits that cost more than that.
