My mom bought my dress, simply because I found the sample on sale and was like ‘ok if I go back after I get my work bonus and it’s still there, it’s meant to be and I’ll buy it’ and she said ‘youre a damn idiot, go buy it now’

My mom is paying for the dress(es, since I’m getting one for ceremony and one for reception). I am SUPER cheap and refuse to spend a bunch on a dress I’ll only wear once, but she’s insisting she wants to spend to get the perfect dress. It gets annoying, though, because now she has a say in what kind of dress I should get.

princessbride1989: No offense taken. I’m just worried that I wouldn’t be able to find anything “Ritz-worthy” in a budget I can afford……
Time to start hunting the sales!

My then fiancé did. He even said I could have two dresses when I was torn between two. I’m the end I got one, though and am glad I did. Alterations were $500.

clarebeemarried: i’m biased.. but i had a big jewish wedding and a lot of our guests were probably the type that their daughters wore $5,000+ dresses to their weddings.. but i got a ton of compliments on my dress and it was just around $1,000, and i could have bought it used and worn once for probably $600. Here’s my dress 🙂

I paid for my own but it was only $230. I will most likely also purchase a reception dress because I originally wanted a short dress but decided I would never get another opportunity to wear a long, fancy dress (I wore a short $30 forever21 dress to my senior prom so I have literally never been so fancy.)

I paid for it. My budget for the dress was really low- I walked into DB on a sale day and got it for $99. SYTTD is fun- most of the dresses cost about as much as my entire wedding :/

My aunt very kindly offered to help pay for my dress. I dont know how much it will be yet, I have an appointment at a bridal shop on May 26th (im terrified about it!) so I will see what I like. I may end up paying some of it myself, which is absolutely fine, because I always assumed I would be paying all of it myself

Me. Like pps, we paid for everything.

My mom wanted to pay for my dress, but she obviously wanted to keep the price under $1000. I decided pretty early on that I wouldn’t limit myself to $1000 and I’d just pay the difference. My dress was about $1500 after taxes iirc.
