    that isnot as bad as though
    Yeah I expected them to be A LOT more, I think though Vera Wang used to be a lot more expensive, and it's only her recent collection that she's lowered the prices a bit.

    Am I the only one who wouldn't wear a Vera Wang dress? I really don't like the "princessy" wedding dresses at all, I'd rather have something a lot softer and more flowing. I found my IDEAL wedding dress online once and had it saved to my old computer but I've lost it now I quite like these ones:

    Actually most are 2-7 thousand dollars but the Luxe collection being those mostly photographed and probably what OP has been looking at are 6-12 thousand dollars with some being even more.

    You're not alone. I won't wear a vera wang i dont think. Too "couture" for me and likely to date. I want something really classy.

    BTW that one i've quoted is Grace Kelly by Maggie Sottero (I think its Grace Kelly but its definitely a Maggie) and she is the designer behind the dress I love.

    :yep: fantastic choice, I love Maggie Sottero. I also like Pronuptia for their brilliant construction giving an excellent form and Justin Alexander (love that dress) who is just amazing.

    I'm not mad on Vera Wang tbh. I want my dress to be partly made from a custom-made corset so I'll probably get my own made unless I really get taken away by a designer one.

    My personal favourites are Brigitte, Demi, Chardonnay, Victoriana (although loads of people have worn that now) and a few of the destinations ones. Not to mention the fact my aunt got married in Capri Marie and it was even more stunning in real life - and really well made/good quality.

    Love the ones riotgirl posted up top! All those fancy shmancy dresses don't cut it for me. I prefer something less modern/more sophisticated.

    I'm not a Vera Wang fan either. I would have spent up to £2000 on my dress but after trying loads on over a large price range, the one I loved was just £725!

    Why would you waste all that money on one dress? Weddings are far too much about the cost and expense these days. I would rather spend £50 on a nice dress that i could wear again :dontknow:

    I want something that will please John more than anything and he would be really dissapointed if I turned up in a normal dress! Furthermore, I waste so much money every day I wont even miss a few hundred more!

    In saying that I am not into wasting loads of money on the wedding. Although did waste rather alot on the honeymoon!

    What about pleasing yourself? I'm not suggesting something plain but to spend over £2000 on a dress for a day that is supposed to be about two people loving each other seem so damn materialistic. Of course if you have that cash then go for iit but i know of women who have gone a whole winter without heating to pay for weddings when in reality it is one day.

    I am by no means judging anyone, do as you wish by all means, i just think it is so easy to get caught up in the me me me attitude of today that it is easy to forget that getting married is a show of commitment not a £2000 dress, 5 tiered cake and sit down, three course meal for 50.

    Of course its what pleases me too! However, it is really nice to please the guy you love :rolleyes:. Oh btw, I actually only spent £725, I just would have spent that much if the dress I liked cost that much.

    I would never skimp on any other aspect of my life to have a wedding, I went on a lovely expensive holiday last month too so hardly scraping the barrel right now!

    Oh btw 50 people is concidered a small wedding :eek: I know this because when I went to book a 50 person wedding I was met with "only 50?!".

    Amen!

    Why is being a Bridezilla normal nowadays?

    To me, a wedding day is all about throwing an effing good party for the people you love/care about and wanting them to share your happiness for one day. Not wanting them to pay an effing fortune to see a circus performance down the aisle and have to get a takeaway afterwards.

    Um what? I hope this wasn't aimed at me as I am not a bridezilla and am serving a bloody 5 course feast at my wedding, picked the venue based on how good the food is!
