    Default Sort of spin off. How much did you pay for your wedding dress and why?

    I walked into a bridal store not wanting to pay more then $1000 as I see it as a waste of money to spend alot of money on a dress you will use once.
    I was about to walk out when a lady said she could help me and pulled a bunch of dresses off the rack.
    Ironically, one she pulled off I told her I hate and she insisted that I try all on. I ended up loving the one I hated!
    The tag said $1750.
    I told her no way.
    She said if I put a deposit on now, its mine for $700!!! Woot woot!

    $50 I got it as a ex rental, they did alterations for free. I didn't want to spend much money on the dress as we had a fairly tight budget.

    $4,900, first dress i tried on & fell in love with!

    Why? Our wedding theme was an older style theme and the colours and large amounts of lace were just perfect for my wedding!

    I paid about $1500 to $1800.00. This was the cheaper version as I didn't get the really expensive material which would've cost about $3k. I paid that cause I loved the dress and it was what I wanted...

    I paid $50 for mine. Drew a design and had it made at a tailor's in Nepal (my husband proposed to me on a trek over there) and carried in a pack for 3 months. I loved it and couldn't see the point in a big and/or expensive dress - just not my style.

    $1600. Absolutely loved it and will keep it in case any future generations want to wear it or use parts of it.

    $170 because I refuse to pay $1000's of dollars for dresses with HUGE markups! I love my dress!

    $500. I spent most of my money on the overseas honeymoon. We didn't go into debt for our wedding.

    $500. It was a deb dress. It looked nice but I'm not particularly attached to it. I'd sell it but DH is sentimental and won't let me. It's nothing particularly fancy so I don't see other generations wanting to use it.
