My gf and I dont like the idea of weddings (though we both like the idea of getting married) because of the ridiculous expenditure on them and all the bravado that goes with it. As in why even pay 5 grand on a dress you wear once when that could be used for something so much better like a holiday?
Anyways so my question (s) is/are this. How much would you be willing to spend? Would you be happy to wear a second hand dress on the big day? If not/so, what do you plan to do with the dress you did wear?

A wedding doesn't have to be super expensive. It's only a party if you really think about it, because you can get married without having a wedding (at least if you're not religious).
I would be cool with a second hand dress. My friend had a second hand dress for her wedding last year and it was really nice. I already picked out my dress though - it's a brand new one and it's only $500! I'm so happy I found that, and I can't wait to wear it. The rest of the budget is really small and most of our things are DIY.
I want to keep the dress. It's a bit too fancy to wear to some other party, but I don't know if I could part with it. My mom still has her dress and she's been married for 28 years now. I really wish I could wear her dress because it's so nice, but it's far too small (she's 5'3" and I'm 6'1" haha).0
