My dress budget was 5000.00 (gifted by someone who wanted to buy my dress for me..) And mine was only 900.00 without tax or alternations (I will probably need some as I ordered up a size from what you see here so my chest would fit better..and I prefer the really fitted look around the rest of my body) Maggie Sottero Anniston.. I would’ve kept trying on dresses to see if there was sometihng better but I hated trying on wedding dresses (not a shopper!) But I really do love this dress ๐Ÿ™‚

Melissa Sweet dress.  Was originally $5975, but paid only $1800 because I found it when they were closing shop and clearing out their inventory.

It is a GORGEOUS dress and I can’t wait to wear it!!!!!

I found my dress on sale and it was $650. I estimate my alterations will be at least two hundred dollars.

My dress was on sale and I got it for $650. I imagine alterations will be $150-200.

I got my amazing Casablanca 1985 for around $1200. I ordered it in diamond white and with a modified sweetheart neckline (this is the sample dress). I can’t wait for it to arrive in December!

$20! yeah you read that right! A friend will be doing alterations – taking off shear fabric and sleeves to make it strapless. adding corset back. I fell in love with this dress when I saw it though I envisioned it as a sleevless (we are fixin that lol) so I figured for the price I couldn’t beat it. When I tried it on it just felt right!

after alterations (seamstress friend) I will be at about $100 max for additional materials ( ripping out zipper puting in modesty panel and corset back)

I thought I had previously posted to this but I didn’t see my post so… My dress was originally $850, got it on sale for $300. Alterations with tax cost me $200 more;

I bought a Casablanca Diamond Collection dress off the rack for $504 and the shop paid my tax for me since I bought the dress in full. Alterations will probably run me about $250. I won’t post the pic till after the wedding though because my Fiance is very vehement about not seeing me in the dress. He doesn’t even want to look at models in dresses that aren’t mine! So funny.

My mom made mine! ๐Ÿ™‚ The cost of the fabric/supplies was probably about $300 max., but obviously her time is worth a ton too! No alterations obviously needed since it was custom.
