    I had it in my head I wouldn’t spend more than $500. I ended up doubling that when I found *the* dress. The bridal shop is throwing in either a hem or side seam alteration, but I’ll stil have to pay for the bustle.

    My budget was $1500, but my dress was about $1600… After alterations, veil, etc. it will be closer to $2000. But I searched high and low for my dress, so I’m not complaining. 🙂

    Mine was $1000 which I was hoping would include alterations as well.  The dress I chose was just over $1100 after tax, pre-alterations.  I’ll need it hemmed, bustled, and possibly taken in a bit if I lose more weight.  So I’m guessing $1300-$1400 when all is said and done?  Alterations will happen in January/February, so we’ll see then for sure…

    Budget was $1000 & I paid $978.  Hoping that I won’t have to have many alterations when it comes in!

    My budget was $2000-3000 but ended up getting a dress for $1300.  Alterations were about $300, cathedral length Pronovias veil was $300.

    I have two dresses. The budget for the church wedding dress was $2000, but I spent $1100, and the budget for the courthouse wedding dress was $500, but I spent $370. I did really well, I think.

    My budget was $4K, and I found the dress for $2600K before alterations!  Hopefully with veil and alterations I won’t bust my dress budget.
