    I wore the same dress to my shower and rehearsal. It was right around $100 total, or $50 per wear. Nordstrom, white eyelet.

    TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, and Target (and similar stores) would have dresses that fit in the more expensive looking category but are definitely budget friendly…

    Depends on the rehersal dinner I think.  Mine was low-key at a pub with just our bridal party and parents, and I wore a maxi dress I already had, which I think cost $40 or so.  Even if it was more fancy, I probably would have worn a dress I already owned though.

    I bought mine yesterday from H&M for $40.  No regrets here!  It’s Navy Blue (though it looks black in this picture) and very simple.  I’ll probably add some character with accessories.  Pardon the dopey expression on my face.

    I would have just worn one that I already had, but I think I’m going to joing Gwynnie Bee and use my first time free order on a dress to wear.

    I spent about $40….although when I bought it I didn’t have the Rehearsal Dinner in mind.

    I spent close to a $100 and that was the max. It was a beautiful, simple dress and I can absolutely (and will to other’s future weddings) wear it again many times!

    @TwoStatesBride:  first, that picture of you(I assume?) in the mirror is way better than the model one! And I have a dress super similar that I bought for $15 last year that I think I will wear! It has a v neck in the back and a scoop in the front without the shoulder like that one but the skirt/length/ lace are pretty much identical. Super stoked, I think it makes a very appropriate rehearsal dress!

    Mine is technically a bridesmaids dress that I found at my bridal salon.  With the discount it will be $120.

    I would spend up to $100. I’ll honestly probably do a Rent the Runway because I want it to be something really special and unique, and if I were to buy a white dress, I probably wouldn’t have a whole lot of other opportunities to rewear it.

    I spent $170 on mine, but it’s a $500 dress.  I got lucky and found it on sale.  I don’t think I would have paid full price for it.  But I probably would have gone up to $300 for the right dress.
