Mine was a sample Angel Rivera, so it was originally $3,600. I got it for $960! I highly recommend a discounted sample dress for getting a designer dress on a budget. Alternations are going to be about $500-700, but my veil was free because it an heirloom😉

I bought mine 10% off due to it being an off the rack sample. It had just arrived weeks earlier and I’m pretty sure they said I was the first to try it on. No alterations needed at this time but we’ll see after I’m back to my workout routine over these next few months – have been out due to a shoulder injury! I bought a matching veil for about $250 but no pics with it.

mskatie :  We went to a dress shop that sells sample couture dresses that have never been used – not even as samples. It’s called the Bridal Garden in NY and I highly recommend that route. Everything in the store was sub $900 and there were some $10k+ dresses on those racks. The issue is you have to be pretty close to the size of the dress or no go. It was a fun experience and I would highly recommend it. Also just some info on alterations – they can skyrocket in cost. Becasue my dress didn’t have any beading or lace, the alterations took less tme and cost less money. I’ve heard of people spending close to the same amount on their alterations as the dress. I was able to get my dress to the perfect length and tailored to my body, which was a really nice way to prioritize the money spent.

My dress was US$1,090 – including cap sleeves, headpiece, short veil, and shoes as free accessories (plus free shipping, as I bought it online). It’s the Brenda, by Rebecca Ingram (Maggie Sottero).

misstomorris :  Amazing service. I messaged them with questions, maybe through email I think, and they replied promptly, were super nice. Fast shipping, my dress was here less than 5 days after I paid for it and it was in pristine condition. I would recommend them a million times over!

I just bought mine today!!!! Its Essence of Australia D2209. It was originally $1600, but I saved 15% with a sale they were having, so it was $1360. Bit then I paid a customization fee for a shorter hem, so it came out at $1530. I still saved a little bit. 😂 

I dont have a great picture of myself in it, but here’s the model picture.

Stella York – $1500, which included having it custom made in a petite length.

It was designed to be more of a fit and flare, but when I had it taken in during alterations I wanted it to come out more sheath-y.
