Mine was about $1500 for the dress… haven’t done alterations yet, so that’ll be a couple hundred more,

My budget was up to $2k, I ended up spending $1216 for the dress and $150(ish) in alterations.  This does not include veil and other accessories.  I definitely could have gotten a better deal in hindsight!

I didn’t have a budget for my dress, but I tried on and loved dresses that ranged from $600 to $1600. Had I been limited to a budget, I would have been happy with any of those dresses. You will find one in your range.

Happy shopping!

I didn’t really go in with a budget.. but we don’t really have high end dresses available in the city. The most expensive dress I saw was $2500. My dress was $2000

I’m hoping to stick to $1,500 for EVERYTHING. But I also suspect that my grandmother might offer to pay for my dress so ill definitely be more budget conscious if that’s the case!

My budget was originally $2K for the dress, but I ended up with a $5k dress.That was actually one of the lower priced options my shop offered.

My original budget for dress was $1200. The one I’m prob going to get is $1600 before alterations. I have no idea how much more that will be but I don’t think there should be a ton of alterations. So, ill be going over budget. I hope to keep it at or below $2000.

I didn’t have an exact budget but I knew I really didn’t want to spend over $2K and I didn’t think I should need to because there are so many options out there.  Mine turned out to be $1100 (not including any accessories or alterations)
