How much was your wedding dress?

If you got it on sale, how much was it originally and how much did you get it for? (I really need to stop watching wedding shows lol.)

  • I watch most of the wedding shows too...well, Say Yes to the Dress (my fav) and Four Weddings.

    I got my dress a David's Bridal...dress, veil, and underskirt came to $450-500.

    Personally...and I'm not bashing ANYONE, it's your money, you spend it how you want to...but I think anything more than roughly $800 is ridiculous...I know it's your wedding dress, but still, you're really only gonna wear it for a day...and I thought mine was gorgeous. You can see the top in my avatar. And the prices on Say Yes to the Dress are absolutely outrageous...that could be a car or a down payment on a house. Most of those dresses cost what my entire wedding did...some cost almost 3x as much as my wedding!

  • Free ... I borrowed my future SIL's dress. Mom's fit everywhere EXCEPT across the boobs. It was easier to tighten SIL's with safety pins instead of having mom's altered.

  • I bought mine for $75.00 back in 1965. It was very pretty....but definitely not expensive. :-)

  • It cost nothing, unless you include alterations. I wore my Mom's dress. I lost weight to fit into it, which I needed to do anyway. But, she was so very skinny at the time that alterations still needed to be done. It came out beautifully. *sigh* :)
