ooohh! that dress is gorgeous!  You look beautiful!

All together I’m spending about $900 on my dress including accessories and alterations, but I was lucky and found my BRAND NEW Maggie dress on ebay!

The dress is stunning! However, you may be able to get the alterations done for less money if you go to a private seamstress. Also check etsy and put out an alchemy ad and you may be able to have the veil custom made.

The dress looks great on you! I would definitely see where else I could get my alterations done, though! And the veil – maybe put an add in the classifieds here, on craigslist, and an etsy alchemy request is never a bad idea!

The dress looks fabulous on you – nice curves! And I know how you feel about the price issue: I was planning on spending only $1000 tops on my dress, and I ended up falling in love with one that is $1500…I sucked it up and did it anyway though!

the dress looks so great on you! i love it! my budget was $1000 and i ended up spending 900 with tax, but haven’t done alterations yet :-S (i’m tall so won’t be needing a hem, hopefully i can get everything done fairly cheaply…)

My dress budget was $500 and I only went over by $30.  I might get it hemmed also but that will be done at an independent tailor so I guess we’ll see!  I budgetted for accessories & veil separately, I budget $100 for veil but only spent $23.  Yay!  Just try to cut your budget in other areas if you can.

That dress is gorgeous!

My dress budget was small (500) and I spent 350 of it, but I found my dream dress.

Maybe you can find it on ebay or like the used wedding dress websites..and can you find an independent tailor?

I avoided going over my budget by looking at the price tag before I tried it on. I wasn’t going to try something on that was over my budget–even though the sales lady tired. But, I didn’t want to go over so I limited it..

that dress is lovely!

i was going to need to hem my dress and take the straps in but alterations were going to be insane due to the hand beading. i ended up ordering the dress in petite to avoid all that and now it fits perfect! the only thing i need is a bustle

That seems like a lot for alterations! I would go somewhere else, for sure.

With alterations, my dress cost me about $900.
