  • My wedding dress was my high school graduation dress, college graduations dress, Easter dress a couple years and then I finally retired it after I was married in it (because I was pregnant...lol.) and I spent a mere $10 on it at a thrift store...lol.

  • A dress you wear for only ONE day? $150
    but then again I didn't even buy a wedding dress for my wedding, such a waste of money to me

  • credit cardwell it depends on the person's bank account. i would not pay $5000 for a dress but, for another person that is a drop in the bucket.

  • I feel that it is up to the individual. I wore my mothers so I only paid 25 to have it altered.

  • my Mom made my dress 30 yrs ago. With patterns materials and such it was less than $75. In todays terms it would probably be about $200 to make the same dress today. I could never spends thousands on a dress. It just seems wasteful to me. I saw a woman on that show once spend 20K on a gown...all I coulod think is that is a downpayment on a house

  • I paid $500, which to me was a lot. Then I see this show, and was blown away that people spend thousands on a dress.

  • I think my mom paid $550.00 for my dress.


    If I had that kind of money, I would spend it on a dream dress.

    lol...I know. I saw one show where they paid like $20,000! All I could think was I could buy a car for that (or even less) and at least a car would last me years!
