A friend of mine talked me into watching a cable network reality show about shopping for the perfect wedding dress...dealing with young brides and their wedding jewelry im no stranger to the cost of a wedding...but when did the average price of a wedding dress get so high!? On the show, the sales staff were informing this young bride that their bargin dresses began at $1,500( in the real world that figure might be expected)but the average dresses started at $4,000.00 and went to $15,000 for off the rack! I can see if the bride was going to wear the dress over and over for a long period of time...but its worn ONCE! You can buy an amazing ring for these prices that will last for the rest of your life!Okay ladies educate me as to why so much money and emotion has to be invested in the wedding dress?...And for the already married ladies...in hindsight...would you spend that amount again on the same dress?
