Spending $5000(or whatever amount) on a dress if the couple and/or family has that kind of money to spend doesn't mean the bride cares any more about the dress than the marriage and future spouse. I'm glad everyone got such good deals but it's starting to sound pretty judgemental in here.
Yeah, that's kinda what I'm thinking.
I have the guy, and the relationship
. Now I have *the luxury* to care about the dress, because the important part is pretty blissfully arranged. It's not like it's suddenly work to be in that relationship
Also, I spent less than $90 on my dress, but I sure spent a heck of a lot of time! and energy, and creative input.
It is the dress that I will look at for the rest of my life (bcs it's in the wedding pictures), and it's the only garment I've ever worn that tons of people actually focused on.
