Um its $1000 shipped to Aus, I would say around $100 alterations, so I will be wearing it from around 1.30 to 11.30pm, so thats 10 hours so $110 an hour. Not too bad ๐Ÿ™‚

I never really thought of it this way, but it makes sense.  Mine ended up being about $130 per hour.  The gown was $1100 on sale with $300 in alterations…totalling $1400 and I wore it for 11 hours.  Not too much in the grand scheme of things, considering people pay $100+ for lessons (i.e. golf, tennis, etc.) around here!  Wink

If I actually made that calculation and looked that number in the face…no. No I refuse! I’m just going to think of the overall joy the dress will bring!

Huh…. my dress was $575 plus $75 for alterations.  I wore it for about 11 hours…. so it was about $60 per hour.

I’m torn between 2 dresses, and I just did a ballpark figure for alterations ($350).  If I wear it for 6 hours one will be $375 and another $420.  ¡Ay dios mío!  Let’s hope I wear one much much much longer

My dress was $99 on sale (Originally $649) and alterations were $50. So $149. I will wear it from 10am-4:30pm (We are having a lunch reception) So that is 6.5 hours… so 149/6.5 is roughly $23 a hour. That’s not bad at all to me!! I wish I made $23 a hour at my job lol ๐Ÿ™‚

Haha, what a fun question!

Let’s see….my dress, including alterations, was roughly $1,400.

I got dressed at about 5:00pm, and took it off at 3:00am.  So, 10 hours = $140 an hour.  Not bad!

….But considering my mom paid for it, it was free for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

I never thought about it this way…

My dress was $800 after taxes but before alterations. I’m hoping my alterations aren’t crazy and I only need a hem and bustle so I’m going to ballpark a guess of $150 for those bringing the grand total to $950. I plan to get in my dress around 3 pm for pictures and our reception ends at 11 leaving me wearing it for approximately 8 hours. 950/8= $118.75 per hour. Not too bad but still more than I would have liked to pay. Oh well, can’t put a price on looking awesome (hopefully).

@Purpleunicorn- I agree, but I do not think you can justify splurging on your dress. I did and I love it, but don’t try to get my to justify my spending I don’t think I’ll be able to.

I like this! My dress was $769 after alterations. I’ll have it on from 2pm-12am, so $76.90 per hour, AND if I add in the hours I’ll have it on for my TTD sesison the cost per hour will drop to $54.93 per hour. Quite the value if I do say so myself!
