I just couldn't wrap my mind around spending so much money on a wedding dress, plus for the look that I wanted I wasn't finding anything. Everything was 4,000+ I just couldn't do it but I picked this prom dress and matched it with a veil and I love it especially since wedding is on the beach. On top...

Everything was 4,000+ I just couldn't do it but I picked this prom dress and matched it with a veil and I love it especially since wedding is on the beach. On top of that the lady lied to me about what colors my dress came in I didn't want to wear white, I went home and saw my dress in the color I wanted so I bought it off another site for cheaper

so I now will wear my white one on the beach change into the other one for reception. Let me know if you didn't go for a traditional dress what did you pick.

    Nice and I know it looks so bridal and was way cheaper. Glad to know I wasn't the only one thinking like this people thought I was crazy when I said a prom dress.

    It's beautiful and I agree I cant picture myself spending more than maybe $700 on my dress.

    I don't know if you meant to reply to my comment or the actual post because my dress was $1,200. Originally, I went in with the idea of $1,500 because I personally didn't find anything I cared for less than $1k. $1,200 didn't sound so bad when I found this dress and it was worth every penny.

    Wear whatever you want for your wedding. My dress was/is a $2000+ Mikaella bridal dress that I bought pre-owned for about $400. I knew I wanted to wear a white/white family dress but it didn't matter to be whether it was a bridal gown, prom dress, or vacation dress, as long as I liked it. I definitely recommend brides-to-be check out sites like Lulus, ASOS, BHLDN, and pre-owned sites when wedding dress shopping because you might just find something you like that is a not a traditional dress but would make a beautiful dress to get married in.

    My MOH is making my dress. She's a professional seamstress - has worked for the Met Opera. I'm going on Tuesday for measurements and we already have the fabric for the main dress and the corset. Still need to find the overlay. So far, I've spent $55. I am SO excited.
