Personally, I am grabbing a dress out of my closet and it is done. The reception dinner will be at my parents house, hosted by my Future Mother-In-Law. I just didn’t see a point buying another dress for this.

That being said, if I see a cute summer dress I will wear during the months it is BOILING (and we don’t have A/C), then I might buy a new dress and wear that, but no more than $60.

If I had anything nice to wear already, I would have just wore it.  But I ended up buying a dress from Macys on clearance for like $25

The dress i wore to our rehersal dinner was around 100 dollars! It was a hot LBD that i will get lots of wear out of! I think i’ve already worn it 3 times since September!

I wore jeans and a sweater for my rehearsal lol and a cute dress from Modcloth that I’d worn for my engagement photos to the rehearsal dinner. I think it was about $120 but I wore it for the photos, the dinner, and for several occasions since.

I went with a BCBG dress for our rehearsal dinner in Mexico. If I recall correctly it was about $400. Loved it though!!

I budgeted $150 but I am also considering wearing a dress I already own.

I bought a dress from one of my favorite stores.  I wasn’t too pricey (except for the fact that I bought 2 dresses b/c I didn’t know which one I wanted and had to spend $50 on express shipping).  It was about $190.

I’ve been keeping my eye out anytime I’m at the store. I recently found a cute spring-ish Tahari dress on clearnace. The ticket price was $138. and I paid a whopping $26. For now, it’s the one!
