I brought my wedding dress from a lovely shop today. They only sell ex samples and it was £350 with alterations.
How much was yours?

I've bought one by Alice temperley and it was £120. It's not a wedding dress per se as I didn't want anything 'bridal' but I'm happy with it

Monsoon. About £200. 8 years ago.

£700 incl shoes dress tiara net curtain and all the bits with it, plus alterations as I'm a short ass. We divorced I gave it to the charity shop, very much worth it!

Sorry was 11 years ago.

Too much. From memory about £1600.I honestly have no clue why I spent so much money. I am happily married but am the least sentimental person in the world, I wish I could just sell the thing, I have no attachment to it, but DH does smile

Moral of the story- only spend £££ on a dress if you're really into dresses, and likely to get sentimentally attached to it. Otherwise, be sensible!

£25 black pockadot 50s style dress from Amazon
£75 red polkadot shoes from Irregular choice

And I've worn both on numerous occasions since

260 pounds. It was a 3k Susanne Neville dress that the shop had deemed beyond repair ( ex display, torn and very delicate lace). Little did they reckon on my mum's 'make do and mend' abilities. It was beautiful smile

£180 Monsoon

Around £650 if I can remember correctly it wasn't anymore than that as I refused to go more than that. I saw it in a magazine and fell in love with it, first dress I tried too.

£30 from a high street shop, wasnt a wedding dress, just a cream fancy dress, £20 on shoes and £6 on a fancy hairband. We didn't spend much on our wedding (it was barely a wedding really) but it was one of my best days and 5 years on I don't regret a thing.

£250 from a shop that was closing down, apparently it was originally £1200, not sure how true that is, plus £100 for alterations.

Far too much for one day

Over £2k not including accessories but it was raw silk and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it

Number 2 dress was £700 - In hindsight may have been better to go with it but hey ho. I loved the dear dress and felt beautiful

1500 I think. Don't regret spending a penny of it.

FattyMcSaggyChops Fri 01-Aug-14 08:02:55

Free, I won it in a competition, my mum made some slight alterations. smile

£200, one of the most simple wedding dresses you could find. It was a cream column dress with a fine net train from shoulder to floor. Shoes were £60 I think and sodding uncomfortable too.

£70 off ebay blush

but it was lovely!

GemmaTeller Fri 01-Aug-14 08:04:32

In 1978 it was £33 for Joan Barrie.

In 2000 I had a fitted shift dress made by a wedding dress seamstress and it was £80.

fledtoscotland Fri 01-Aug-14 08:05:15

£700 inc alterations. Loved/still love my dress as v intricate and never seen anything with the same detailing.

Ladymoods Fri 01-Aug-14 08:05:35

£250 + adjustments as I was 5 months pregnant at the time. I still have the dress but not the husband thankfully.

Oh and I'm selling it if anyone wants a maternity ballgown....
( worth a try...)

My Mum made mine for me.
I spent £100 on the fabric.
£13.00 for the pattern.
Shoes £18.00
Fascinator/headband thingy was £10.00

misog2000 Fri 01-Aug-14 08:07:37

Mine was £600 as it was end of line, I would never have paid full price for it but it just happened that the one in the shop fitted me perfectly with no alterations and was exactly the material and design I was looking for

dashoflime Fri 01-Aug-14 08:08:31

I will say: having watched someone sew a wedding dress and seen the hours and hours of work that go into it (Mum swears she will never attempt anything like it again!) i do understand why they are expensive.

£240 from a uk based internet company. £13 on alterations.

I wear it in 2 weeks. shock
