I SO dont even understand the pricing on that show! There were sisters who had one $6000 budget given they each find a dress for $3k and neither of them could do it and the one sister let the other sister have the whole $6k. Ummm with $6k let alone $3k I could get the dress, pay in full for my venue, get the bridesmaids dresses and the catering done…lol


But anyways here is mine it was $800

@SpecialSundae:  Oh I definitely don’t think a 6k dress is necessary. I personally didn’t feel like that much money was worth it for one day. My point was more than more luxurious fabrics (regardless of if we think they are or are not better) are going to cost more. Doesn’t mean it’s worth it, it just is what it is.

@starfish0116:  My point was that a lot of the dresses don’t necessarily have fabrics that justify the higher price. The vast majority of the price is on the shop’s mark-up followed by the manufacturer’s mark-up.

This is my budget beauty!  She is the Lasara by Watters.  Originally priced between 4k and 3,500, I managed to find a preowned dress that needs pretty minor alterations for only 1k!  She even covered the shipping and the paypal fees!  Luckily she was way taller than I am as well so the bottom hem of the dress that got a bit dirty will be cut off to fit me 🙂

Edit: That is NOT the veil that I will be wearing!

I do not get the whole “you have to spend this much to have a beautiful wedding”!!!!

My dress retails at $2500, but luckily my beautiful Mum is making it 🙂 She is using high quality fabrics and it is going to cost roughly $500

The dress above is mine – and the one below is another I tried on which cost $5,000 and in my opinion is nothing compared to the dress I chose 🙂

Mine was 1500 as I took the Casablanca 2004 and added sleeves, a lined neckline and a totally different skirt! It photographer beautifully.
