not sure if anyone else that just began looking for a dress has this prob but whenever i am going through mags and ripping out my favorite dresses/searching the computer and printing them, i have NO clue what the price ranges are for what i am looking at. i think this board could be helpful to brides that need a little price guidance, so to speak!
it’d be most beneficial, i think to name the designer (of your gown or gowns you have seen) and a range or appx price!
hope this helps not just me, but all the brides to BEE!

Sadly, a majority of those dress copmanies in magazines are in the thousands =(
I got my Maggie for about $400 but I’ve known people who’ve paid $1500 for her dresses.
David’s put their prices on their website.
Casablanca also sits around the $600+ range.
As does Alfred Angelo.
Also there is a lot of factors–trunk sales, etc.
I tried on some Jim Hjelms and Tara Keely dresses that started at $4500.
The Elizabeth James I tried on (a local to StL) was $1300.
The Justin Alexander was $2200.

Rivini and Lazaro are in the 3-6 thousand dollar range… Rivini hurts me cause I fell in LOVE with one of their dresses but I cannot feel ethically sane and spend that much on a dress. There’s a limit.

Watters dresses range from about $1,200 to 3,000. Their less expensive line, WToo, starts at about $800 and I think are usually under $1,500.

Mine is Mon Cheri and I believe they are priced at around $1K. I paid less because I bought a sample.

hey missjayellegee, the knot’s website will tell you a range if that’s what you want, b/c its hard to know which designers you want info for! Also their magazine does too, if you happen to have a copy lying around. Good luck! 🙂

Most Casblanca’s I looked at were around a $1000 but I live in a high cost of living area. Most Maggie’s ranged from $1000 to $1500.

Of the one’s I’ve tried
Pronovias – Ranged from $900 – 2000
Allure Exclusive dress – in the $900’s
Justin Alexander Couture – $2400
Paloma Blance – $2400
We also have a bridal consignment store here that actually has mostly off the rack designer gowns. I was trying on Kenneth Pool, Christos, Ramona Keveza (don’t think I spelled that right, lol ) Vera Wang, etc… Most were in the under $3000 price range and the majority were under $2000

My Justin Alexander tea-length was regular $950 I think. If you google Bridal Warehouse (there is one in my area, not sure if they are everywhere) they list prices with all of the dresses and there a lot of designers. I didn’t go there to try on dresses for myself, but I think I may get bridesmaid dresses there. Hope this helps! =)

Mine is a Romona Keveza, I got it for 3k (a sample) but it retailed for about 4500. I tried on a Rivini that was around 2600, and a bunch of Priscilla of Boston dresses that ranged from 2200 to 5500.
