    I had a budget of $1K and mine came in just under, I think around $920, without alterations or veil.

    You should make a poll with different ranges.  Some people might not want to tell everyone with their names, but wouldn’t mind saying so in a poll. 

    I’m pretty darn proud of my $300 price…..bought a sample dress (perfect condition)…..well, I will probably pay $100 for alterations because it was too big….and whatever a veil costs on top of that.   Still proud.

    the actual dress itself cost $850 – but the whole ensamble:

    dress – $850

    veil, gloves, crinolin, bra = $250

    shoes – $65

    jewelry – $30

    TOTAL = (rounded) = $1200

    we wanted to stay around $600 for the dress – but even my mom – who was all about the budget – fell in love with the dress and bought it for me even though it was “over budge”…

    I didn’t have a set budget in mind, but it ended up being $850.  Then $200 for alterations, $50 for shoes, about $100 for accessories, for a total of $1200.

    I got mine as a sample so I paid ~$700.  My mom’s making my veil.  And shoes were around $60, I think.  Not a bad deal.

    My dress was $450.00, bought from another bride who bought it and then decided to go a different way. The dress was origionally well over 1,000, which was 500 more than my budget.

    Veil FYI, since I saw someone else mention veils . . . I was shocked at how expensive veils were in the bridal shops!  I ordered mine online through veilshop.com.  They have a great return policy, so even if you’re hesitant about ordering online, I would check them out!

    Mom really wanted to buy my dress. She gave me a budget of $1500 (I think she was ready to spend up to $2k though) and my dress was $850 – $1084 with taxes and alterations. Not too bad.

    The shoes were $425 (!!!) and were a gift to me from my soon-to-be Mother-In-Law. I love that lady.

    All the other accessories came out to around $100 (Hair flower, bracelets). I have my eye on 2 swarovski cuffs though, so if by some miracle I can get them they’re about $350.

    I got my dress for $106. Went to a small, local boutique and they had a huge sale. Since the wedding is very casual, on the beach, I decided to go with something super simple. WIth alterations it will cost me a total of $150. 😉

    Mine was $300 + tax. The veil was $80, and I also got a fancy lace ribbon for $50.

    I still need shoes (I am hoping for under $50)

    Got my dress for $400 (!), paid about $230 in alterations, and my shoes were $20. I think I did pretty good! 🙂

    $299 for the dress. About $20 for the headpiece and veil, both DIY. $40 for the shoes. Looking at around $220 for alterations with hemming it, around $145 if I decide not to hem it.
