Dress was $1500, veil was $300 (I think) then I spent about $500 in alterations (ridiculous I know but at that point it was like oh well and I know they’d do a fabulous job)

Just under $300! I went with a bridesmaid dress in white, which saved hundreds, and then it fit like a glove without alterations!

Just under $1800 including taxes and alterations (had to have bodice and bust taken in, hem shortened a lot because I’m 5’2″, bustle for train, and detachable straps added).

AUD 3100, haven’t started alterations but will only need a hem and bustle so hopefully won’t be that much more.

I’m hoping to buy a Hayley Paige dress, which will run me about $5000 before alterations.

I got a really great deal and paid $700 for $1600 dress. It was a sample dress, so it requires some alterations which are costing me another $600. I think that’s close to average dress cost
