Mine was $1258 which included getting it three inches shorter.  Here’s a picture without the strap and flowers attached to mine.  I think all I’ll need in alterations too is to get it bustled.

I’m getting mine designed and made by a good friend for $1000, including all materials and alterations. Unfortunately, though, that means no pics to share until the dress is read!

I paid about $900 for mine…well my mom was generous and bought it for me. Normally this dress goes for $1200 but I found it at a sample sale for $900+tax.

@wgowood:Thank you so so much! And if you got a dress for $800 I think that is a steal!

@wgowood: $4-500 is a pretty good deal on dresses, I don’t think that’s too much unless you’re on a very, very tight budget. 

By The Way, your first dress looks a lot like one I tried on in that price range:

The skirt proportion was just too much for me (I’m only 5’0).

My dress was $100, though it was originally $200. With alterations it was less than $200. The only issue was that it was too long. Also, keep in mind that I went to a department store, not a wedding shop.

I spent $230 on mine, including a separate slip to go under it.  The dress itself was $170 for a Davids online only style that I bought just to try and LOVED. 

Don’t feel guilty for spending money on your dress, though!  Everyone’s budgets, priorities, and expectations are all different, so don’t feel bad about whatever you spent. πŸ™‚

My original dress was as Amsale dress that I bought off oncewed.com from a lady that was a 2 dress bride and I paid 850 for it (which is the first dress pictured. Then we decided to elope and I was able to buy a short dress off the rack for $250 and while I at the salon buying my dress I got a hair piece that was $89 so I factored that in with the cost so I just say 350.
