    99cents for the dress and $199 for the postage. i brought a dress i liked custom made on ebay and it was the most amazing dress i've ever seen. I showed it to my sisters friend who was a dressmaker and she said it was so well made and i got a bargain

    I got my dress designed and made for me by a fantastic designer in QLD. I spent about $3K including beautiful European lace (the cheaper Asian stuff was a bit scratchy).

    I loved it...it was perfect for me and I was happy to spend the money. It can also be passed down.

    $300. It was end of season clearance rack, like 70% or 90% off. The first one I tried on and I loved it. Couldn't have picked a better one for $5000.

    Including alterations - just over 2K.

    I have no regrets!

    I personally set 2K as my wedding dress budget so I was happy

    I hired my dress for about $500..I loved it, but didnt see the point of having a dress hanging in my wardrobe for years to come and never get worn. I'm not a sentamentalist in that way..

    $500 plus about $400 on restoration and having a slip made to wear underneath. It is an antique, nearly 90 years old, an embroidered cotton flapper dress from the 20s. Absolutely beautiful. By the end of the day the fabric was coming apart all across the back but she (the dress) had been waiting for me all that time to have her last wear on my wedding day. Absolutely LOVED my dress!

    I actually bought the dress before I'd even met DH - I found it browsing eBay one day and just HAD to buy it. Turned out it fit our wedding venue perfectly. It was fate for sure!

    About $2000 I think it was. I had set a budget of $2500, and only tried on dresses under that price. I loved my wedding dress, and was so comfortable in it.

    Holeeeeee and i thought I had gone OTT

    I hear you though. For my first wedding mine was the first one I tried on and I absolutely fell insanely in love with it. It was $3500 and the veil was $350 from memory. Absolutely stunning!

    My second wedding the dress cost me $120 with postage and my MIL paid for the alterations
