    2nd hand, $450 including alterations and drycleaning. It was gorgeous and I would have paid $2500 for it brand new but got it 3 weeks after the bride wore it.

    Congrats on your engagement!

    I paid $900 for my dress 7 yrs ago. It was straight off the rack, no need to wait for shipping from overseas. I spent a little bit on alterations to shorten it, and run it in down the sides (unexpected weight loss!), no more than $200 on top.

    If you're in Sydney, there's a number of bridal outlets in Wetherill Park. I got mine in the shop upstairs from Calabro formal wear (its a hot pink building).

    I think it was about $1400, (2009) and alterations to bring train in and hem was $250. I originally had a Mr K ongoing bridsmaid dress but in white for $250 but went all brideszilla and decided i wanted a proper gown, so glad i did, fit me off the rack and was perfect,

    Sometimes i just unzip the bag and have a little touch

    Congrats im so jealous, i cant wait to renew my vows and get a new dress, my fav part of the whole wedding was picking the dress and putting it on on the day
    *sigh*

    Fabric (silk) cost me about $300, dressmaking = free, because my sister made it. Mind you there was an emotional cost because my sister leaves everything to the last minute so I was quite stressed.

    Just over 2K once I got the alterations done. No regrets, it was a stunning dress. I spent the amount that I budgeted for, 2K was my personal limit

    Congrats on your engagement.

    Mine was about $4k and if you add the jewellery it all came to $5k. That was about 10 yrs ago. It was custom made. I looked at some cheaper ones, but they say the first dress you see is usually the one you buy. Shouldve looked at some cheaper ones first. Although I loved and sill love my dress.

    Firstly, congratulations on your surprise engagement, what an exciting time for you both!

    I got a one off Maggie Sottero dress which was featured in a bridal magazine, and with a veil and hoop and a slight alteration all up came just under $5000 about 7 years ago.

    My mum made mine for around $800. It was gorgeous!
    All lace appliqué and hundreds of crystals!

    Mine was FREE, I borrowed it.

    I wouldn't pay over $500. I used to work for a bridal boutique and the mark up is horrific.
