I’m sure there are other posts like this on here, but there are some new bees now and I might get some new numbers. 🙂
Also, I’m a sucker for pictures, so post them if you have them! I haven’t found my dress yet, otherwise I’d be posting mine as well.

Lol I must be in a dress mood (or the ‘bee is) because I think this is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve posted my dress today! My budget was $1000 and I spent $800 on my dress. With alterations I’ll probably be just about at my limit.

I found my dress a couple weekends ago, and I have an appointment to put the deposit down this weekend. It’s a little over $750…and gorgeous! I’ll post a pic after my appointment, it’s definitely doable!

My originaly budget was $1500, but we ended up spending $1750. Here is my lovely (although it is posted on about a million other threads):
I can’t wait until I can go pick her up…probably not until February though And even then I think I’m keeping her at fi’s family’s house so I’m not tempted to prance around in it on a daily basis, lol (and we have too many pets to feet safe)

I voted Unsure because we didn’t have an official budget. I could spend as much as I wanted, provided that I absolutely loved the dress. I was contemplating the $4,500 Jim Hjelm for a big wedding next year, but we ended up eloping and I wore a $450 dress.

My budget was $1500 and I found my dress for $850, so I came in under budget even with alterations and all my accessories!

I wanted to spend under $700.
Spent $250 for this dress:
and $250 for alterations (remove skirt and reattach w/ hook&eyes, create sweetheart neckline, taken in on sides and lace reworked, cups added, second skirt made)

My budget was 3,000 and I ended up spending $5,200. I found a dress I loved for $4,200 but wanted to add to it and instead had a custom gown made by Rivini based on a a dress that was in the current collectiong.

For the dress only, I chose under $500. I wanted to find something for about $300 but I figured it was unrealistic. However, I did get my dress for $350, so not bad. That doesn’t include alterations or shoes/bra/veil/etc.

Our prelim budget is $2k-$5k. The dress I currently love is $3,500 but I just started looking. (And obviously if I find something under $2k that is perfect, that will be the dress.)

Mine was $1,500 (with a little give) and I managed to score one for $1,160. Yay! Here I am in the sample.

My budget was $1200 and this cost me $900 before alterations (haven’t done them yet).

I wanted to come in under 2K, and I did, with the cathedral length veil included! Alterations will probably push me slightly over that, though.

I actually had my dress budget at around $400, but I’m getting it custom made for $550. Thankfully, my aunt has offered to pay for it.
