I am happy to say I found 3 final dresses that i love at Alfred Angelos. I am not the type of bride that loves dress shopping or going to 20 different places so I just want to get this done.
However, I am also very practical and the one that is my fav on sale will be 700 then plus alterations could be another 100-200 so that would be about 900-1,000. I have a difficult time spending that much on a dress for 5 hrs and then that is it.
I would rather have an extra 500 to spend on our honeymoon or house bills.
What have you spent on your dresses and how do you justify that? I am not saying it is wrong, but for me I would rather spend it elsewhere.
Thanks, just wondering 🙂

Have you looked at dresses available on websites such as:
Also check out:
Have you looked at any white or ivory bridesmaid dresses? Many of them are equally beautiful as wedding dresses.

I think you maybe happy with a gently used wedding dress. Now you know what you want, what looks good and what size you need. Just go and do searches like Julie suggested!

My Gurl was a sample dress from 2009 Badgley Mischka collection that I got nearly 80% off. I found yourdreamdress.com via preownedweddingdress.com. Purchased my dress in March for my July wedding. You can find a ton of boutiques who will sell you a sample for way less. Patience is key.
