So speaking of SYTTD marathons, maybe some of you can help me on this since I'm not too far into my planning yet. What do you guys think is an average dress budget?? I started thinking about this last night when I was watching the marathon. Do most people spend around 5K, because that seems about average for the show, I think. I was really hoping I could stay under like $1500 ... is there anything decent out there for that price or am I gonna have to step it up?? I'm probably the only girl ever who has been engaged almost 5 months and hasn't even looked at dresses yet - LOL! I just don't even know what to expect and want to be realistic w/ my budget when I start looking around.
