Poll: Spending More or Less on the Dress?

Last week David’s Bridal opened it’s first store here in Manhattan.  Across the country major bridal designers whose gowns retail for multiple thousands of dollars are launching lines that offer similar looks for a bit less:  2008 saw the creation of Angel by Angel Sanchez and Reverie by Melissa Sweet. (here, a Melissa Sweet and a Reverie by Melissa Sweet).  But 2008 also saw the launch of the uber luxe, uber pricey, Giambattista Valli bridal line. 
So, in light of this economy, are you spending more or less on the dress?
