    Mine was 1800 (no sales tax on it) just for the dress, and with alterations it will probably be around 2200

    Mine was $750 for the dress, then there were taxes, then $25 for alterations (all I needed was a bustle). Alfred Angelo dress, I can’t remember the style number.

    $250 + $130 for alterations, so around $400 including tax.   Jasmine Bridals from Running of the Brides.

    I bought my Maggie second-hand for $900. The bride I got it from originally wanted $1000 for it, but I talked her down a bit. It had already been cleaned, and didn’t need alterations, so it was quite a good deal.

    I was planning on spending only $500 but I found this dress and couldn’t walk away from it, so I spent $771 and alterations will probably be about $100.  I should feel lucky because I know the store owner and she gave me a discount 🙂

    $1600 for a sample sale, my beautiful Marlowe by Leanne Marshall <3 (model pic; I had the fringe on top of the bodice removed)

    It was definitely more than I expected to spend, but I’d originally planned to buy a vintage dress

    Mine was Casablanca, I think around $1200 before alterations and all that and not including the belt.

    Mine was a little over $1600 with tax – still haven’t done the alterations. I got it at a sample sale and saved a bundle!

    Just under $1000… I paid a little over $1000 including tax and shipping.  It’s not in yet, so don’t know what alterations will be!
