Back to this subject again. how much did you all pay for your dress, the best dress ive tried on so far is €2,040, and i tried on another nice dress for €980 but still not as nice as the first one, is this mad money or should i keep looking? what you think girls?

My dress cost €1,200 but when you inclued the veil, tiara and alterations it came to a total of €2,000 in Alexandra Brides. Tinker Bell *)

Thats what im thinking by the time i get shoes, veil etc a fortune will be spent, i will look another bit and if i dont see anything else i will go back, i still have time.

My dress cost €700 but with alterations, tiara & shoes it comes to €1,000. I'm delighted. I couldn't justify paying €2,000 or €3,000 for a dress. But its your choice at the end of the day and your budget, so go for what you really want. Best of luck. :wv

Don't look at dresses outside of your budget. Just because you compromise on budget doesn't mean you have to compromise on style or settling for second best.

My budget was €1500, and I ended up spending €2,900 on mine. I just [u:3psiyi4s]knew[/u:3psiyi4s] it was the one. And if it is, its priceless.
