My budget is strictly $600. I can’t imagine spending more than that on a dress that I’ll wear once.

I spent $1,050. That was the total price after tax and all that. I was really pleased with the price overall!

My budget was ideally less than $1000 CAN but my Fiance said to go up to $1500. My dress was around $700 from Etsy (including tax, shipping and customs charges). Can we see pics of yours? ๐Ÿ™‚

My dress was $2500! I originally budgeted $2000 but I’m hoping I can sell it afterward! *crossing fingers*

My budget was $1000. I spent $700. 

I would not spend over my budget on a dress.

My budget was $300, I spent $250. It seemed wasteful to me to spend more on a dress I would wear once.

I spent $76.31! But mine is not a “wedding dress”  1) it’s my 2nd marriage, 2) it will be a small, backyard wedding, 3) I didn’t want a wedding dress. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dress was $1,300. I also bought extra matching lace for $200 (which I didn’t even end up using so that’s annoying) and alterations were $500. So with all that – $2,000. Budget was originally $1,500 but I didn’t allow enough for alterations!

My budget was 4.5k and I ended up spending 3.4k including alterations (which were pricey at 700!!)
