    Dress was $750. Alterations were $300. Then I had a veil and a mermaid crinoline…both were $25 each on ebay. So my total was around $1,100.

    Dress was on sale for $1000 (was $2000).

    So far no alterations required, fits perfectly.

    I don’t have accessories yet but I estimate:

     

     

    Sash $200

    Veil $200

    Shoes $150

    Earrings $100

    Underpinnings (sexy shapewear, undies, bra and stockings) I estimate about $120

    Total $1770 (estimate)
    My mom bought the dress and will buy the earrings so I will be spending about $670.:)

    @kittyface:  It’s a custom, hand made pearl and diamond piece (not a tiara, will sit on back of head above veil but not a tiny hair comb either).  Afterwards, it can be made into jewelery for me , which is the best part about it!

    @bump:  awe thanks so much! eBay, my dear! Crinoline was used once and the veil was from a a bridal shop that was liquidating inventory.

    My Badgley Mischka Lissa’s were purchased for $65 on eBay as well – they were a store display pair and had only ever been tried on. 

    I usually find something I love in real life and then search for it on eBay ๐Ÿ˜›

     I think, 900-1000.00 for my dress. I always add in the cost of my veil (not the one pictured) because it was all one transacation. Total it was 1200.00
