Part of it had all the flowers of the commonwealth put into it and imagine slapping that much effort into a veil, the thing is that its got to be perfect and as such a lot of the cost will be in the design and the effort as whoever did the design will need to be paid well as its got to be perfect as she can't be seen to hoisting it up every so often.

If you've watched 'dont tell the bride' you can see that they can spend mega money for a bog standard wedding and never mind in theory all the costs of keeping the dress a secret which would probably require 24x7 police cover.

But really would anyone expect someone to marry the 5th in line to the UK throne in a few hundred quid sampler dress from a wedding shop?

How can a bloody dress cost that much? In The U.K. you could buy a house for that ( in some area's anyway )


It'd have to be a really crappy neighbourhood in Australia, to be able to buy a house for 300 grand.

But yeah, I'm in total envy... Just thinking about what I could do with 300 thousand dollars.

Good for them though, I suppose.

Some people have it all and others don't... That's just a reality to life the majority of us have to deal with...

Wow why not. If you had the money? Not even a less expensive one? Like could she get a two thousand dollar dress and a three hundred dollar pair of shoes?


Because the tax payer baught it not her

You can get a replica of Diana's tiara on eBay for less than $30.00


But it ain't the real thing...

You weren't expecting her to get married in a burlap bag, we're you?

I know that's a lot, but it was an enormous event, so...

Meghan Markle's wedding dress will reportedly cost $550,000, which is almost twice the amount of her initial budget.

I hope it was worth it.

She could have gone to Walmart and gotten a wedding dress for 49.99

Stupid princess probably didn't have a coupon!

pfft!

The bride looked lovely of course, but that is the plainest wedding dress I have ever seen. As for the cost, it was a royal wedding and they pay plenty for other things, why not a day that goes down in history?

She's the Duchess of Sussex, not a Princess.

Obviously.

I did not see one single unicorn during the entire ceremony.

I thought the British had unicorns and leprecauns.

And tea.

The dress was a nice shape but I thought it wasn't all that. Rather plain and understated. I could see the veil being expensive due to the hand embroidery and it's overly long size (which looked more of a hinderence tbh). Yeah, so the fabric was all silk and specially woven etc, but the whole thing is not worth 200 grand. But you know, the minute the word 'wedding' (or funeral for that matter) is mentioned, the simplest and most ordinary things suddenly have huge price tags on them. Just hope the 200 grand came from her own funds and not the tax payers.

If I had 200 grand, I would defo buy a nice house with a small but sunny garden space with a patio and that has 3 bedrooms and a dining room and possibly a conservatory that could be a good work/art/dressmaking space. Ah well, one can only dream.

Call me English but what else do you really call someone who just married a Prince?

Nothing is a straight forward as it seems.

I'm sure Princess Diana said pretty much the same thing back in the day.

What...? Too soon?

For comparison, Kim Kardashian's wedding dress supposedly cost around 8 times as much as the one you're complaining about. And she's not even a royal.


The sad part about that is, there are millions of fools in this country that think Kardashian is some kind of royalty.

What did you expect they are freakin royals.

If she was an asshat, she would have made them put diamonds everywhere and cost 200 million.

I wouldn’t spend that much on a dress or a wedding. Up to her though. It was a big extravaganza on live TV, she’s not gonna wear $25 dress from Walmart.

Perhaps not but maybe a $25.000 dress would have been equally as good.
