You look gorgeous and very happy in your dress so it was WORTH the extra money!!

I was hoping not to go over $2,000 and I didn’t even want to spend that much, but when I tried on my Jim Hjelm dress I had to have it!!  I got it for $2500 and thats with a trunk show discount!!

but you look absolutely stunning – in this instance, I’d say it’s worth the budget shuffle.  He’s going to fall over himself when he sees you.

look at your curves – you are INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS!!!!!!!

I actually bought an oleg cassini as well – CMB321. in ivory. we paid full price as – when I went in to try on dresses, it was brand new and had only been in the shop for a few days…but TOTALLY worth it! 😀

 

(although I might sell it after the wedding)

I got my dress at 90% off.  It was originally $800, I got it for $80 because the store was going out of business.  My budget had been about $1000.  The rest of the wedding has been VERY expensive so I’m glad we were able to save this bit.

I budgeted $3k for the dress and alterations and found THE dress for $1800 plus around $300 for alterations!  I’m doing a feathered comb instead of a veil, but only budgeted $150 for that and found one I LOVE for $350…so I’m glad I’m a little under on the dress.

your dress is so gorgeous!  I love it and it looks great on you, totally worth the extra!  Mine was about $4k for the dress, a bustle (didnt need any other alterations) and some fake boob inserts to fill the gap at the chest

Oooh pretty! Your dress looks a lot like mine, actually, although I paid a hell of a lot more (actually, my Mom did – thanks Mom!). My budget was $3K for dress and alterations and I ended up getting it for about $2,600. We’ll see how much alterations end up running.

You look beautiful in the dress!  I had originally budgeted $3k – $4k for my dress, but I got one for $1700.  I’m hoping alterations are less than $500!
