    I was given a $5,000 budget for my dress, as a gift from a family member. I spent $695 on my dress and it needs no alterations, so the rest of the budget is a wedding gift. I just didn’t feel the need to spend so much.

    I planned to cap things at $1000 and found a dress for $850.  When I add taxes and alterations, and accessories (I know that’s not part of “the dress” but let’s face it, it’s clothing and has to match!), it will probably come out to $1500-1600.

    I think this needs a poll!

    Mom is buying my dress and I would like to spend under 3k, although she has not set a budget I just couldnt justify spending any more.

    At first I set my budget as 1k max, hoping to stay closer to $500, but I found after a lot of looking I didn’t find anything I really loved. So instead I designed my own and my mom and I are making my dress and the materials have worked out to be under $200 including my bra. Nice bonus. : )

    I didnt really set a hard budget, but I thought 1k was reasonable.  Except I’m pretty  cheap, so I ended up finding a dress for 250 at running of the brides.

    My wedding dress budget was $1500, but I got my dress for $984. I am hoping I can get my alterations for cheap since all I’ll need is a bustle put in (I ordered a petite because I am only 5ft 2 and 3/4. Petites are 5ft 6in, but I’ll be wearing 4 heels. My dress also has a corset back) and pressed and steamed.

    My budget was $1200, but my dress was $1800. We are cutting in other areas to make up for it 🙂
