    How much did your wedding dress cost?

    How much did you (or your spouse) pay for your wedding dress?

    (also what year so we can adjust for inflation :p)

    I hunted and hunted for the "perfect dress" as we all do.
    And I found it, breezing thru clearance racks at JCP.
    It fit to a "T" and I think with tax it was $105.00
    I couldnt believe it! It was exactly what I wanted! It was an answered prayer really!
    This was in 2001

    So far, I'd say my wife's wedding dress has cost me about $2M and change.

    Was it paper or plastic?

    I just bought my dress this past Thursday for $130.00. The bridal shop was going out of business. I saved $400.00. My bridesmaid got $100.00 each off of their dresses.

    Not right now but with what I paid, I'd be wearing the same dress! :p Just to ' professionally preserve and box' it cost me more than KM's.......:o

    So men, what was the 'initial' purchase price? *or is the misses not telling* :rolleyes:

    I bought my gown and veil in 1976 for close to five hundred dollars. It was the year of the Bicent. and it had a hoop skirt, a ten foot train, and a twelve foot veil. I went to get into the limo, a wind came up and blew the hoop up over my head! LOL LOL Truly difficult to lug all that material around for hours and hours. Gowns today are more simple and elegant too.

    My mom made my dress for my wedding in 2002. I think all the materials cost about $60.

    Yeah - cleaning and putting it in a box was almost as much as my dress, but my Mom took care of that for me.
    My dress was originally over $500...I think it was $550....it was beautiful, so was the dress ;)

    I found mine at JC Penney for $154 in 2002. It wasn't the dress that I liked the most but I had to settle for that because the one I really wanted was a size 26, (just a few sizes too big! lol)

    I can't remember for sure...I think it was around $250. (married in 1996, but I may have gotten the dress in 1995. I was young, 19) It was a super deal, all raw natural creamy colored silk. Full skirt and such. Of course the alterations to add a bustle and make it shorter for me cost about half the price of the dress. LOL I really wanted a different dress but it was around $500 and my parents said no. LOL The one I had was very pretty. It worked out great! (I even have been able to use the giant crinoline that I had to buy to go with it. It went under the green dress from the Tiny Tim's Christmas Carol show.)

    My dress was somewhere between $350 and $400 back in 1996. I kept it in hopes that my husband would want to renew our vows one day.
