Welcome to Part 3 of our big “How Much Does a Wedding Dress Cost?” special! 

We can’t believe we’re already on the final day of our look at the price tags behind some of the world’s most coveted wedding dress nz designers.

On Tuesday we took you through the best places to find a wedding dress for under $1000. Yesterday, it was all about mid-range gowns, with some seriously stunning dresses worth saving up for.

But today it’s all about tossing the budget out the window. (Or saving up, really, really hard!)

We’re talking the big leagues!

Vera Wang, Zuhair Murad, Elie Saab, and Oscar De La Renta to name(drop!) just a few.

Some of their prices are surprisingly splurgable, while others might make you wince.

But if you’ve got a bottomless budget for your wedding dress (lucky you!) these are the designers to spend it on!

1 Vera-Wang-Wedding-Dress-Bridal-Musings-Wedding-Blog--630x911


From dresses with more layers than an onion, to the most figure-clinging silhouettes, all-over Chantilly lace, to plain silk with oceans of beading… having endless options doesn’t make finding your wedding dress any easier, but it does make it a little more fun!

Make the most of splashing out, with our tips for finding (and rocking) the dress of your dreams.

  • Never feel guilty about how much you’ve spent on your wedding dress! (It’s nobody’s business either!) Whether you’ve been gifted your dress, you plan to resell it afterwards, or if you simply loved it, could afford it, and bought it; own your wedding dress on your day, you deserve it!
  • Just because you have a big budget, doesn’t mean you have to blow it, choose the dress that looks and feels the most beautiful to you, not the one with the biggest pricetag.

  • Buying an expensive dress doesn’t mean you have to go for ornate embroidery, a big gown or lots of beading, if your tastes are more simple, invest in a designer that focuses on great fit and gorgeous fabrics instead.

  • Lauren from Juno & Joy told us this tip, and it’s such a good one, if you think you want a big white dress, start by trying on the biggest gown in the shop to get an idea how it looks feels on you. After that, it will be much easier to gauge the volume that suits your shape and feels comfortable.

  • Have fun with accessories, all your budget doesn’t need to go on your dress, spread it out on bejewelled hair ornaments, stylish coverups and killer heels.

  • Two dresses can be better than one. If you’ve dreamed of a princess-worthy wedding dress, but know it simply won’t cut it on the dancefloor, leave a little room for dress number two – something fun, sexy, and totally danceable.

2 Zuhair-Murad-4



Our wedding dress guru, Sama Hemsley, Manager and Head Stylist of bridal boutique, Blackburn Bridal, is back once again, with top tips for finding the dress of your dreams.

Is there a certain percentage of your overall wedding budget you should assign to your dress?

Oh no, there are no rules at all. What isn’t remotely important to one person is the most important thing in the world to another, so what you want and are prepared to pay for a dress is entirely personal.

As a guideline the UK average is probably around £1000-1500 ($1500-2200 ), but at Blackburn Bridal (an independent designer boutique) the average spend is more like £2500-£3000 ($3700-4500).

Then there is Couture which can see you paying anything up to £10,000 and beyond! It’s all about what is reasonable and feasible for you.

What designers would you suggest to a bride with a limitless budget?

Well the world is your oyster!

I think it has to come down to personal style again though – just because you’ve got a couture Vera Wang budget doesn’t mean you’re going to want a couture Vera Wang dress.

Flick through some bridal magazines, make a note of the dresses that inspire you and get trying on, you lucky thing!
