How much was your dress?

Just out of curiosity. Were you comfortable with what you paid? Was it more than you originally planned? Less? Just right? Did you splurge? Not splurge?

ETA: Feel free to show off your dresses. I can't get enough of them Smiley smile

    $480. It's an $1800 dress but it's been discontinued so I got it at a fraction of the price. So yes I'm very happy with it. I was having a hard time justifying paying for a dress until I found this one. But that's just me. I hate spending money. Lol

    Mine was $129.99. I found the one I wanted at the big stores and went on eBay and found a shop selling it straight from China and I didn't have to pay $12,000 for it! It was brand new too. I absolutely love it

    Mine was $1350 but after tax $1500. It was honestly more than I'm comfortable with (like yes I could afford it but it's just a lot of money for one dress/day). While it was within my budget I would have much rather stayed under 1000. Alterations were another $250.

    I doubled my dress budget. I'm thrilled with what I picked, admittedly did not ever intend on spending $3000 for a dress. I'm thinking of trying to sell it after the wedding to recoup some of the cost. I haven't decided yet.

    $200. I actually took a chance on dressilyme.com and had it custom made to my measurements. I avoided a lace style though because it seems like the china dressmakers often botch lace dresses. I really liked it for the price. It wasn't perfect like the real dress it was made to look like but the original's a $3000 dress. Everyone thought it looked great.

    Two weeks, no alterations needed. I wanted to wear flats so that was perfect

    Mine was $420 because it was discontinued. I had no idea it was so cheap when I tried it on, the dress looks way more expensive. My dress budget was $630 so I was very happy with the price.

    $450 was mine! My whole wardrobe--dress veil shoes garter sash and the alterations came to $970, which I wanted to stay under $1000 for everything together so I'm very happy with that!

    Paid $900 for the dress - it was discounted because it was a sample. Paid $350 for alterations. I expected to pay about that much.

    The dress I originally picked was $1500 for the dress alone. I ended up with dress regret, and getting a new dress that I love 10x more for $300 from someone in a Facebook group who bought the dress and then changed her mind.

    $1230 for the dress, $75 for shipping, $175 for the veil, and $300 for alterations. Even with the shipping cost, I saved about $100 by ordering from a store in a different state (so did not pay sales tax). The veil was a gift from my parents. The dress was within budget ($1500), but I was really hoping to pay less than $1000. I loved my dress though. Originally, I planned to sell it, but am now rethinking that plan.
