I'd pay a max of $1k, but would probably go lower than $500 on a dress. I don't like the idea of spending so much money on something you'll use only once.

there's no magic number as to what you should spend on your dress. I would say take your entire wedding budget and then maybe break it down from there. I wouldn't spend more than 10% of the entire cost on a dress.. $2k dress for a $20k budget sounds about right to me.. but again others may be willing to sacrifice on the reception or band or whatever, to get a more expensive dress.
