    I paid about $600 from memory, it was an Ex display dress that was missing a few tiny beads and needed a dry clean

    Firstly CONGRATS!!!!

    My dress was a once off designer dress that i managed to get from a sale for $730.00 It would have cost over $4000 if they were to sell it on their line however they would not have made any profit as the materials were expensive.

    here is a pic

    I should say it was NEW aswell.

    I actually did buy a $4400 dress from Abbey brides and paid in full and well they went bankrupt 2 months before I got my dress (was being made in spain) so lost out on the dress and money... rrr.. anyway thankgoodness, my mum persuaded me to check out the sale because I loved my dress and it ended up being more perfect then the one I wanted in the first place.

    Also op. Don't pay for it in full, they all offer payment plans. Do this because your less likely to loose out if something goes wrong.

    Mine was $500. It was from a closing down sale and a deb dress. No beading or anything, pretty plain.

She also made my veil for that
    WOW i would love to see a pic!!

    $490 or something like that, under $500 anyway. It was on the sale rack, quite simple but i loved it.
    Unfortunately it was strapless (which i didn't like) and way too big (like it would just fall to the floor, literally, if i didn't hold it up) so it ended up costing me around $1000 after i had it altered and added sleeves (very expensive but beautiful beaded cap sleeves).

    I got mine for $500. Its a current season dress that retails for $1900, but the zip was broken!

    $50 for a new zip and it was sorted...

    Shows you the markup on them though if for a broken zip they can take $1400 off the price!

    $1700 including hoop, veil, purse and hairpiece. Made by a dressmaker who helped design it with me. Loved having a dress made specifically for me!

    I got a Maggie Sottero dress off the rack for $900 including dry cleaning then paid $300 for alterations. It would have been about $1700 bought to order plus any slight alterations.
