Everyone hopes their wedding will be a day they’ll never forget, but some brides have broken the bank to make sure everything, including their dress, was absolutely perfect. Kleinfeld is known to fit all budgets, but for some customers, the price ends up being less of an afterthought.
Some brides arrive with a modest budget, while others arrive with nothing. So, of all the brides walking in the door trying on wedding dresses, which ones are really breaking the bank? Here are 10 of the most expensive dresses featured on the show along with what they cost.
Updated April 7, 2022 by Tanner Fox: With 19 seasons debuting since the show began in 2007, Say Yes To The Dress has been an undisputed hit for TLC. Telling the stories of brides-to-be in search of their ideal wedding dresses, Say Yes To The Dress has launched a selection of spin-off titles and endured for over a decade on a network known for quickly shedding underperforming shows.
While most of the dresses seen on the series range in price from several hundred to a few thousand dollars, some brides have really broken the bank to make sure their big days are as magnificent as possible.
10 $3,100 – Megan
Megan definitely sparkled and shimmered in this Hayley Paige dress. This flowy yet simple and elegant dress with a touch of sparkle definitely made her wedding as beautiful as ever. This chiffon dress was one of the most beautiful in the presentation, but it also came at a pretty high price, although it definitely doesn’t compare to some on this list.
Although relatively reserved, the dress cost more than three thousand dollars. Although not as expensive as some of the other dresses on offer, its price may have surprised some viewers.
9 $4,500 – Jesse
This Maison Signore gown features stunning lace and floral embellishments, and is completed with a tulle skirt. Jessie was stunning walking down the aisle, and this date certainly cemented the success of her wedding.
Plus, it was the last dress Jessie tried on, and she clearly knew it was the one. Her wedding was definitely one for the books, and she was stunned by the only dress by this designer to make this list. It’s a good example of a case where, when a bride finds “the one,” she just has to have it no matter what the price.
8 $5,900 – Cami
This bride almost gave her mother a heart attack when she tried on black dress after black dress, but found one that appeased her bridal party, created by the brilliant Pnina Tornai.
Cami Li tried on this dress in both black and white, and they both looked absolutely gorgeous on this gorgeous bride. Strapless and elegant, this $5,900 dress did not disappoint in any of the colors and was one of the most exclusive in the TLC series. Combining her alternative style, Cami was perhaps one of the most striking brides in the series.
7 $12,500 – Katelynn
Pnina Tornai strikes again, combining this mermaid dress with Swarovski crystals. In a tulle skirt, sparkly bodice and stunning corset, Katelynn definitely lit up the aisle on her wedding day.
The bride’s mother and aunt chipped in some money so she could get the dress of her dreams, and this sparkly dress definitely deserves a shout out. Not surprisingly, this designer has a ton of dresses that are priced high. Ultimately though, this was a great display of family togetherness and a great feel-good moment for the series.
6 $21,300 – Alexandra
Bride Alexandra Gerhart was looking for a party dress and came across this Pnina Tornai. Featuring Swarovski crystals, this dress has a sheer top and is totally stunning, but it also sells for over $21,000, which of course is a pretty incredible amount of money.
The mother of the bride did not like the price or the dress very much. Regardless, this dress is still on the most expensive list to appear on the show, and it showed how expensive dresses can sometimes stress out family members.
5 $24,000 – Fall
Autumn entered the store with her fiancé’s blessing and wallet. She had two dresses in mind, one for the ceremony and one for the reception, but this one took the cake for her.
Of course, her husband-to-be left behind $50,000, including an $8,000 veil! This definitely turned heads, both for the price and for the unique look of it. Autumn’s was another outstanding example of a bride who wouldn’t settle for anything less than the best.
4 $29,000 – Katrice
This Pnina Tornai dress was worn in the locker room by NFL players and former Say yes It stars Thomas and Julius Jones and was the biggest and most expensive in the store at the time!
The brothers were sweet, but this extravagant dress wasn’t the one that stole Katrice’s heart. Still, it was one of the most expensive to ever appear on the show and it was totally hilarious and sweet. If she had gone with him at the end of the day, it would have been quite historic. Say yes to the dress moment.
3 $32,600 – Tracy
This Kentucky bride showed up at the store with an unlimited budget and there was no way she was going to leave without the wedding dress of her dreams. She, too, was looking for nothing less than a royal gown for her royal day.
Of course, it was Pnina Tornai who designed this huge one, and there is nothing like it out there. This bride surprised her bridal party and she definitely looked like a bride.
two $34,000 – Kelly
Kelly’s mom is paying for her entire wedding, which she’s been saving her whole life! Known as a “modern Marie Antoinette,” Kelly’s wedding apparently had an unlimited budget, and that included her $34,000 gown.
This one-of-a-kind dress was silver and stunning and definitely made for a sensational wedding, and Kelly wowed everyone in her bridal party and walked away in a dress unlike any other featured on the show.
one $70,000 – Tabitha
Many fans of the show who later become brides definitely can’t wait to try on a dress by the famous designer Pnina Tornai. In season seven, bride Tabitha stole the show – and broke the record – for the most expensive dress purchased, worth $70,000!
Forget dresses; that’s more than most weddings cost. That said, Tabitha certainly looked stunning in this gorgeous dress that she said yes to and she spent a pretty penny on. She forgot to share her special day with the public, but fans can still see this dress in her original form.
