    Mine was £499. I'd budgeted £400 but the price includes any alterations so not really a bad deal.

    I budgeted £300 but it's the one thing my mum wanted to buy so I'm not paying for it. We found "the one" for £595, but ordered it direct from America for half the price!

    Mine is £2050 but then am having a little bolero and a veil that pushes the price up a bit on top of that. I feel very guilty spending that much money, but everyone has said that I should treat myself because I am normally very careful with money and we both earn quite a good amount so I should enjoy it rather than worrying. I still do worry though!

    I plan to sell it afterwards at the moment, but am not banking on it otherwise I will be all stressed on the day about not damaging it an any way!

    i set a budget of £1000 and i really didnt want to go over that but i found the 'one' and it was £1495. I felt a bit guilty for choosing this dress but i does everything for my figure (holds me in,in the right places!!),makes me feel good and i fell in love with it before it was even done up. i was told if you find the dress for you, you wont care how much it is!
