    i think they were $150 for both, and another $100 to get taken in. from ebay, then fitted by seamstress here.
    i had 5 dresses all up for the ceremonies (garden offical wedding in my home town, chinese ceremony (3 parts) and a dinner in the city we lived in)

    $350 - cheaper than the shirt DH's wore!
    My auntie made if for me the week before (we only decided to get married 6 weeks before, I was 7 months pregnant).
    Material was $35/metre downstairs, exactly the same (same label, same import date, same everything) was $170 per metre upstairs in the bridal section of the same shop!
    Had it drycleaned for $50 as a 'ball dress'.
    Made DD's christening dress out of the leftover fabric.
    Happy days.

    $2370 for the dress.. It was a Maggie sottero. My heart flips when I think about it almost three years on.
    Dress of my dreams. Veil was about $200, shoes $300, hoop we made, $80 alterations.
    I've worn it three times.. Lol wedding, second bridal shoot ( highly recommend that one!) and a dress up party. it's now cleaned and boxed and sealed ($350) my grandchildren can use it to make something out of it perhaps.

    I wore two wedding dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the reception. My first dress needed over 1k in alterations as i lost a lot of weight before the wedding, it needed to be taken in from a 12 to a 6.
    All up for both dresses and alterations and veil i spent $5500. Im not really attached to the dresses and will probably sell them as I'm never going to wear them again and they take up a lot of closet space.
    No regrets spending the money at all, it was a beautiful day and both dresses were stunning

    Around $2000 for the whole thing. I was adamant I was not going to pay over $1000 but the dress I tried on that I fell in love with (which I didnt even really like on the hanger haha) was around $1600 I think for the dress, and then the extra was a hoop and veil to go with.
