Why Did My Wedding Dress Cost So Much?

I've always thought it was foolish to spend a lot on a wedding just to impress people. It would be wiser to spend the money instead for a home, or having a family, and sending children to college. BBB

Why Did My Wedding Dress Cost So Much?

I got married last May. Shopping for my wedding dress was a bizarre and emotional experience.

I knew I wasn't just paying for the fabric and the craftsmanship. I knew I was paying for the word "wedding" and all the feelings attached to it.

But how much did the word "wedding" cost me? If I had bought the same dress for some other occasion, would it have been cheaper? I took my dress to a fabric store and a tailor to find out.

The marriage is the most important time for a woman, though the dress is expensive, it worth.
