how much did people roughly spend on their dress? I'm so worried about going over budget for little extras
I got mine from Wed2B and spent £750 on the most expensive dress in the shop, a matching belt, veil and princess petticoat. They are very reasonable and have hundreds of dresses in every shop. You also don't need an appointment, which is good.
Hi I am going to go to Wed2b they have dresses from £99-£899 I have less than £700 to spend on mine:)
Mine was meant to be £1500 but I got a discount through a friend and paid £950. x
£288 from Debenhams (I managed to find a discount voucher on-line)
Paid £600 for mine

Discovered mine in a February sale .... £440 @ Bridal house , High Wycombe .....
I’ve seen beautiful dresses, one in particular that I love, for £180. On a website called JJ’s House
More than I expected my view was as long as I like it I don’t care it I don’t care if it costs 100 or 1000 unfortunately it was the 1000 one
£1100 but my mum bought it me as my wedding gift

Got mine off the hanger so was supposed to be over £1000 (can't remember exact price) had the dress, a tiara and my veil for £600 😊 x
£108. That includes the £15ish postage
I'm gonna try and find or have made my dress for hopefully no more than £200
£270, it was on sale with an extra 20% off the weekend I went in. Definitely go everywhere you can.
My parents bought mine and it was way over budget at £1700, but when I tried it on I knew it was the one and it brought my mum to tears. I got a £50 accessories voucher we we have used for veil and hair comb.
Mine was £900 xxx
Over £1600 for mine. I was lucky that the price was not a problem as I had the money at the time to pay for everything. It was the dress of my dreams.
£54 lol i got an eBay one from china as i didnt want to waste money on a dress id wear for a few hours x
It's all about WED2B I cannot recommend them highly enough!!!
£250 My extras will.take it up to about £500 '
£600 but it was reduced on a great sale from £950
A bit of advice I would give to you is.... make sure the shop sticks to your budget! Some shops will find you dresses way over your budget in the hope you will try it on and love it, and spend lots more money. You will fine a dress for your budget my dress was under your budget. You just got to be s but firm with the shops. Xx
I had a budget of £800 in mind but my dress was £1300 reduced to £1100, i did think about it but not for long as i knew it was the one x
I've been looking and seen a lovely dress at jjshouse.co.uk for about £150 which is made to order and it's gorgeous
I WIN! £50 from Lindy Bop! I'm adding a pale blue petticoat and a peach satin sash, covered with pale blue lace, to make it my own unique style and a total one off, that no other bride will have. Also, I can wear it again for parties.
£152 from jjshouse.co.uk why spend an extortionate amount of money for 1 dress that you're going to wear once? Jjs house do make some stunning dresses. Mine isnt actually under the wedding dress section but I fell for it as soon as I saw it
£1500 including alterations etc
£250 for my bespoke dress and all accessories
I'm ordering a black and gold gown from amazon for £79 🙂 I'm not a "dressy" person and I refuse to spend an extortionate amount on an item I will only wear once, plus ours is masquerade theme in black gold and silver so it works!! Xx
I purchased mine from her dress £127 reduced from £779. They have so many dresses in all styles and sizes.
I paid £150 off Spock. Went to her house tried it on and love it. Can't wait till may to wear it.
I went to wed2be and spent £595 on the dress and about £45 on my veil.
I spent £600...was way more than what I wanted to spend but it's perfect. Having ordered a couple online for them to turn up and not fit properly and not been the quality I was after I decided to spend a bit more on a dress I knew would suit me. Sometimes it pays to spend more to get what you want.
I didn't set myself a budget as knew I would only pick a dress I loved for the right reasons at the end of the day but I did tell all shops I wasn't looking to spend unnecessary amounts of money to avoid them just showing me silly expensive dresses and they all stayed realistic. But I was prepared to pay almost any amount out of my own savings for my dress as it's always been important to me. What I didn't consider into the price that I wish I had was the alterations. Ask the dress shop what their seamstress charges before you try dresses on as that can massively hike up the prices. I'm paying best part of £250 for my alterations which I wish I knew before hand as it turned an expensive dress into a really expensive dress x
I spent £779 on mine (with a petticoat) from wed2be and it is amazing. Just as good as any dress that costs £1000s
I bartered with my dress shop and got it for £600 it was meant to be £750 so I spent the £150 on shoes (again bartered as were last pair on the shelf) they were meant to be £70 and I got them for £40 and veil I got in sale was £80 and got it down to £20 I then used the rest for alterations I think I had to only add another £50 all in all just under £800 for everything oh that also included 2 bridesmaid dresses and alterations to them also. Don't be afraid to barter if you are willing to pay cash they will happily do what ever to have that money x
£35 from lindybop
400, eBay :)
£350 for mine
£250 reduced from over £1000, it was on a sample rail, I was so lucky
150 for mine but then was another 200 for alterations my sister loaned me her veil and hoop and my shoes where 20 on sale in bhs
I paid £60 and a bridal shop was charging £1,199 for the saw dress
Had a £1000 budget but ended up spending almost double that including the alterations and extras (plus got a free tiara chucked in for being cheeky!) BUT is was THE ONE and I feel like a princess every time I put it on. Totally worth It, can't wait to wear it in December
£150 from lightinthebox.com made to measure, I loved it
I had a budget of £1000- got mine for £875 down from £2200. Was so happy when I found it!
Dress £1000 (ordered at wedding fair so saved £400). Alterations 150. I thought the veil was really expensive at 200 as there was nothing too it but I did love it. In hindsight I should have bought veil elsewhere instead of the dress shop x
My dress including tiara and veil was £650
£175 off the rail sample dress reduced due to new season... The bridal shop told me I needed Alterations I took it away and to a seamstress who told me it was a perfect fit and I didn't need to spend a penny x
1700 then 250 for alterations x
