Anyone else with me in the thought that it's crazy to spend thousands on a wedding dress?

I'm watching Say Yes To The Dress
I just wince when they say their budget is $2000- $10,000
That is money that could be put to a much better use

  • Have you seen 4 weddings?
    Let me follow the logic. You spend sooo much on the wedding you have to go on a "game show" in hopes of getting to go on a honeymoon?

  • I never had a wedding but I would no way spend more that $500 on a wedding dress and even that is PUSHING it! Yikes, imagine all the starving children that one wedding purchase could feed :(

  • My dress was quite expensive but I could afford it. I've preserved it in the hope my kids will use it at least in some way when they get married (I had a piece of my mom's wedding gown sewn into mine)

  • My wedding gown was $1,000 but, yes, it does get ridiculous when you keep going up.

  • I think it's a total waste to spend that on a dress. Go to th JP and have it done because it might end up in divorce anyway... lol j/k

  • I watched an episode today.'s budget was $6000...she bought a $25,000 dress, then another $15,000 reception dress. Seriously? My guess is someone other than Ms. PrettyExtensions&FlashyFakeNails paid for it. Someone extremely stupid!
