    I have heard of really expensive ones, but the most expensive I have seen in person (and tried on) was a Kenneth Pool full beaded fit and flare.

    The ones on Big Fat Gypsy Weddings are pretty expensive!!

    The most expensive wedding dress I tried on was by Enzoani. The most expensive dress I’ve ever tried though was a Roberto Cavalli gown at Bicester Outlet Centre… It was a mere £4000 reduced from £6000!! I just stood in it and then said “ok, I’m going to take it off now…” I was so terrified I’d mark it!

    I was obsessed with this dress, I HAD to have it.  I found it on pinterest. Tracked it down, only available in Austraila, contacted the designer directly to see if it was possible to have it shipped to the US, I was willing to buy it w/out trying it on.  She contacted me back said it is a custom gown and can only be tried on in Australia, and the cost….$35,000!!!!  I wish I could spend that on a dress 🙁

    @Audrey2:  Oh yeah, I think those dresses are insanely expensive, Thelma once mentioned they run like $50,000!

    Kate Middleton’s custom McQueen is the most expensive one I know about at approximately $400,000.

    There was on on SYTTD that was $24,000. They did buy the sample (which was ripped) for a discount.

    There’s a SYTTD episode where they have to get a Pnina Tornai runway dress out of a LOCKED VAULT for her!

    I think it was $25-35k?

    @atlbride2013:  I had no idea Kate spent that much! Considering she wears a lot of clothes from the high street (ok, the very top end of the high street that’s still out of most people’s price ranges…) and did her own make-up, I must admit I’m surprised! I suppose the lace must have been very expensive…

     

    ETA I haven’t seen SYTTD – do they get given money like on Don’t tell the Bride? Or are these ladies just splashing the cash?

    @Audrey2:  I highly doubt she paid for it. It was likely a gift from the house of mcqueen. 🙂

    The most expesive dress I’ve seen in person was $28,000. My seamstress was altering it for a bride so it was in her shop when I was getting my alterations done. To be honest with you I didn’t think it was that attractive lol. The girl had a $7,000 reception dress as well, which I thought was much prettier.

    I haven’t tried on any dresses outside of my budget as I don’t want dress regret and OF COURSE at 15k dress will be nicer than my 500ish dress. That said, living in LA it isn’t uncommon to see brides trying on a 10k dress like it is nothing. 

    It seems out here that the general dress minnimum price is 4k and rising.

    My brothers wife had a dress from Kleinfeld and the sample she tried on came from the locked vault.  Not sure on the price but it was stunning on her.
