Mine was just under $2000 (US) with alterations. My mom very generouly paid for my dress! I ended up renting a veil for $60 CAD and I was so glad I did because I forgot to wear it to the ceremony! I would have been so upset if I'd bought it! (But it worked out better for pictures because my hair was GORGEOUS and it would have blocked it.)
Haven't purchased mine as of yet but my daughter is coming down this xmas and we will be dress hunting. I want to check out Savvy Bridal and there are a few dress sales in the new year. Traveling bridal dress sales are out around the Toronto Barrie Newmarket area.
I got mine at Best for Bride in North York and they were amazing! The dress was under $2000 (as my budget was $2000 with alterations as well), and they threw in the veil for free!
