    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

    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.
