It’s no secret that wedding preparation can become a lethal cocktail for a conflict to blow up. Think of the amount of stress, pressure, and decision making that the bride and groom have to go through for what is known as the most important day in their lives. That definition alone is already a strain.
So this story comes from a 29-year-old woman who has been planning a wedding with her 33-year-old husband-to-be and it was going well until things turned sour. And the wedding dress was the cause of it.
“This might sound clichè but ever since I was young I dreamed of having my own beautiful wedding dress, I can afford it but my [soon to be husband] thinks it’s not okay to waste a couple of thousands on a dress I’m only going to wear once,” the author wrote in a post on r/AITA.
So imagine her coming home one day and realizing the dream wedding dress she had just purchased was missing from the closet. Let me leave you with the full story right below which made the author wonder if she was right in this whole situation at all.

There’s no right budget for the wedding dress, experts say. It all depends on your budget and priorities, so for one person, $1000 can be a splurge, while another would think of it as a bargain.
But according to The Knot Real Weddings Study, which surveyed over 15,000 couples who got married last year, the average wedding dress cost in 2021 was $1,800. Moreover, buying a new dress for the occasion remains the most popular option for to-be-weds, with 93% purchasing a new design instead of renting one.
It’s important to note that the average wedding dress cost varies by region. According to The Knot, spend in the Mid-Atlantic was over $2,000, while in the Midwest, an average wedding dress cost about $1,600. Interestingly, wedding venues also contribute to the average cost of a wedding dress. It turns out that individuals tend to spend less on a dress for a hometown wedding, while those who hosted an international destination celebration spent over $2,000 on their look.
And this is what people had to say about this whole situation
