- Wedding: September 2013
Hello Bees! I let myself try on a dress this weekend that I knew I didn’t want to spend the money on and of course I loved it. The tag read just under $1700, but after alterations and tax, the consultant said it would cost $2300. I know this isn’t a ton in the realm of wedding dresses and my parents (who are paying) can afford it, but I just can’t fathom paying that much for a dress I’ll wear 12 hours. I guess it just isn’t one of the parts of my wedding I feel like I want to splurge on.
So here’s the question: Has anyone seen similar dresses that might be a little less? I’d love to keep it under $1200. I love the “peek-a-boo” of lace and the corset back and I think the ruching is the most flattering style for me. Also, not a huge fan of taffeta, but I might be willing to compromise on that. Any ideas??
