What was that one thing that you wanted that you just can not have in your wedding? Or have you had all of your dreams fulfilled!
I was trying to think about if I had an unlimited budget what would I change. The only thing I could think of was shuttles from the airport! LOL!! And that’s free now, they just won’t run after 10pm! Soooo then I’m thinking maybe i need to think bigger. And it hit me.
That was the original plan and it didn’t quite work because of family not having passports and having to pay to stay at a resort. But if my budget was unlimited I would just pay for those that couldn’t…or shoot EVERYONE and we would be on SOMEONE’S island, sipping on some drink, and preparing to walk down the aisle ON THE BEACH!!!
What’s your dream?

If I could in good conscience have spent more than we did on our destination wedding, I would have treated our guests to more gatherings. I would have paid for brunches and gotten the girls spa treatments.

unlimited you say? I think I would hire a really great event decorator and have him go to town! lol Tons more flowers..chic lounge area..hookah bar…10 course meal… and paid travel for all of my guests. I would have all of those extras that come after ‘you know what would be REALLY cool?!’ lol

I wanted my wedding to be in this castle in the mountains of vermont. I WAS SOOO CLOSE but it just wasnt practical to make everyone spend the money, If I could I would do it there.

I am having a DW on the beach and that is honestly my dream wedding! Although, if I had an unlimited budget I would spring for more flowers and I would pay for everyone to get there 😀

The one thing I wish is that I could have ALL our friends and loved ones. I hate having to cut the list because of $ and venue size ;(

I wanted 3 very different kinds of weddings and ended up not being able to do any because of cost and weather!
1. wedding on the beach with lime and turquoise colors
2. wedding in the woods under thick trees with lanterns and fireflies
3. wedding in an old red barn in January with bridesmaids in sweater dresses and uggs and silver and black as he colors… lol
reason #1 was not okay was clearly the cost
reason #2 flopped because it rains in PA all the time… and you can’t just put a tent for 130 people to party under in a thick wooded forest area
reason #3 was a fail because… bad weather could destroy everything
I ended up loving the idea of the woods so much I went with a midsummer nights dream theme and am currently trying to make our venue look and feel like the woods… lol

Mine would also be destination wedding. I’d love to get married in Israel. It’s not a money thing though, my husband’s parents don’t fly.
