Your question: Is 800 too much for a wedding dress?

How Much Is Too Much for wedding dress?

Here are my thoughts: Taking nothing else into consideration, the basic budgeting “rule” is that no more than 5 percent of your wedding budget should go toward the cost of your dress and alterations. That means someone buying a $5,000 dress might be spending more than $100,000 to host a wedding!

Is 1000 a lot for a wedding dress?

In the world of traditional wedding dresses $1,000 (including alterations) is on the low end, but it’s still completely reasonable and you can find a dress in that range. If you need to, don’t be afraid to think outside the box.

Is it cheaper to get a wedding dress made?

Synthetic and blended fabrics are usually the least expensive, Davis said, but even taffeta and chiffon will cost less than silk or lace. “If you find a dress that costs too much, you may be able to purchase a cheaper but similarly textured fabric and have a seamstress make the dress for less,” she said.

How many wedding dresses should I try on?

How many is too many? I would recommend trying up to 8 dresses in one appointment. If you have multiple boutique appointments on the same day try not to do any more than three as trying on wedding dresses can be hard work! Often when a bride gets tired they lose motivation and you want to enjoy the experience fully.
