1:  I had a $2k budget for my dress.  The dress I ended up with had everything I wanted and was $550.   I did not use a calculator; my mother offered to buy my dress.

 

2:  I don’t like the idea of a reception dress.  This was the one day I was able to wear a wedding dress, and I wore that thing all. night. long.  I even wore it to the bar afterward for our afterparty and danced to a live band in it.  It was filthy by the end of the night and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.   I can wear a short, white, fun dress any other day of my life; this was my day to wear a wedding dress and I WORE it.  🙂

I love how he just threw that all on his credit card!!!!

I thought about having 2 seperate dresses but then I decided to find one dress that I absolutely loved enough to wear the whole day

oh my goodness her dresses cost 1/2 as much as our house! That (in my humble opinion) is the deffinition of frivilous spending. My dress budget set by my grandmother was 2000. I ended up finding one that I liked online for $40 and we made some alterations to it. The dress + extra fabric + bead work and sash etc. all cost about $55, so I am not the best person to ask… but I do know that dresses are crazy $$$$$

@Saria213:  I budgeted $500 for my dress alone, and bought it for $200 + $185 in alterations – I got a great deal 🙂

I wanted to wear my dress to my reception, but I found it difficult to walk in when not at the beach so I switched to a white sundress that I had bought previously. I’m okay with the idea of two dresses, but I wouldn’t have been willing to spend THAT much!

OMG I could throw 5 weddings with that amount of money. I paid 1400 for my dress after tax, and I have no intention of changing, I only get to wear this beauty for one day!

@Saria213:  i think i saw that one.  it’s crazy.

i wasn’t really sure what i wanted to spend on my dress.  i didn’t want to spend to much, definitely under $2000.  we were only having a small wedding and i hated the dress i wore at my last weedding so my fi insisted i get what i wanted whatever the cost.

I have more or less stuck to the dress budget. I was originally going to get my dress made and i wanted to customise it so i could take the larger A-line skirt off and have a more slim fitting (not tight! one needs to be able to dance…) dress underneith. I liked the idea of 2 dresses but i didnt want to only spend a few hours in my wedding dress so customising it so it would look different but be the same dress worked for me.

In the end though i ended up buying a dress and glad i did. Takes the dress stress off my aunty haha
