    You could probably find a pretty white dress for a lot less, but if it’s THE dress you shouldn’t rule it out just because you’re not having a formal wedding. It also depends on your financial situation, if it’s a strain I’d say keep looking.

    To me, weddings are all about picking and choosing. What’s most important to you and what doesn’t matter at all? Then, if you are frugal about those things that don’t matter, you have the freedom to splurge on those things that do. So I’d say, if you can afford the dress, go for it! I too am having a pretty intimate, casual wedding, and I definitely battled the “I shouldn’t get a nice expensive dress” mentality. But the dress was really important to me. There was really only one that I wanted, and yes, it was more expensive. But I had cut and saved in so many other areas that I could afford this splurge, so why not buy my dream dress? I went for it, and I could not be happier!

    Sounds too expensive to me, but I’m a frugal type of gal.  Let me ask you this.  Is your Fiance able to afford the dress with no problem or will this be a stretch for him?  If he buys you this $1400 dress you’re going to wear one time will that put a hold on other things the two of you may want to do once you’re married?  (ie:  take a vacation, put a down payment on a car or house, go out to dinner frequently, decorate your home, etc.)  These questions should guide your decision.

    If you love the dress I say go for it! But have you looked at some of the nicer department stores?  Here are some of the less expensive dresses I found there:

    Nordstroms $200


    These are from Saks:$590



    Neiman Marcus:

    I don’t see a difference in spending $1,400 for a wedding dress if it’s for an intimate dinner or a huge blow-out. As long as you can comfortably afford it, it’s your wedding, and you should wear whatever you want!

    I don’t think thats super expensive for a dress. If you love it, get it. It’s your wedding.

    As others said, if the dress is a priority and your Fiance won’t go into debt over it, get it. 🙂
