FI and I are in the midst of planning our dream day and I’m super-curious: what do you think are the best, and worst wedding details? Which things are worth spending on and which should we skrimp on?
My personal favorite at weddings is menu cards: they always look so elegant and, if they’re in the right colors, really tie the whole table setting together.
As for worsts, I really never look at programs, unless it’s a really long wedding.
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

I think a good DJ is important to keep the party going, and my fiancé love love loves photobooths.

@missmovies: I’m the opposite! I hate menu cards (most weddings are served or buffets, so I’ll see what I’m eating when I get it, lol) I LOVE wedding programs, though! They’re always so unique. Ours are spunky designed with colors and cool paper. Recently, I’ve had cousins with super formal embossed sparkle letters. It’s nice to see the order and the names.
I agree with @Pinkmoon:. A reception is only as good as the DJ. My sister hired some cheap DJ and it was awful. He was unorganized and unprofessional. My cousin hired the best of the best, the reception flowed so smoothly and the dance floor was packed all night!

Agreed 100% about the DJ. They are worth every dime (within reason) if they are good!
I think I’m partial to menu cards because we always attend weddings with plated dinners, so it’s nice to know what you’re getting!

Great question! I really like paper products, so anything related to that I tend to look at, including programs. Place cards/seating tags are also really important to me! And, of course, FOOD! You can sort of count on weddings to serve the same kinds of food time and again so I love when there is something different.

@missmovies: being a Graohic Designer you’d think I would love everything that I could customize but I am not a fan of programs, menu cards, pew cards lol the Invitations are going to be my favorite part, but right now I’m having fun making Pommanders for the centerpieces! Food is important, DJ is nice, too

@mmle – sooo true. I think that’s why FI and I are so dead set on having unique menu options for our guests. It helps that our venue has amazing food.
@annsaf83 – pommanders sound pretty! How are you using them in your centerpiece?
