    If there was suddenly extra money left over and everything was already planned and booked, I’d probably just save it? Use it for regular life maybe? Just me. 🙂

    @RipleyC:  Not just you 🙂 If I realized something was coming in under budget, I’d be thrilled and put the money towards a future house or something!

    If we had extra money in the budget, I would definitely use it to hire a professional videographer.

    Honeymoon and a second shooter for photography. This actually happened to us when my dress was $500 instead of the $2000 that I budgeted, so I put that money towards flowers and DJ and we were able to get better people.

    We would have used extra money for house renovations, or for a honeymoon down-the-road. Our wedding wasn’t over-the-top by any means, but everyone had a blast, and I don’t think more flowers/decor/etc. would have ‘helped’ the party, at all.

    DH is a college prof., so we had to forgo a honeymoon so he could teach a few days after the wedding. It’s been almost a year, and we still haven’t gone anywhere…
    As for our house, we have a fence to fix, a basement to reno, blinds to buy, bathrooms to reno, etc… the list goes on. Some extra cash would be nice right about now!

    I have to choose just one? Wink Probably a photobooth, I love them and am so sad that we can’t afford one.

    For the poll I chose open bar. For my own wedding I would put the extra money towards our honeymoon since we are already having an open bar.

    @MissParrot:  I would have hired a wedding planner to take care of all the details. Planning a DW with 200+ people on the guestlist is ridiculous, especially when you have a bare bones venue where you have to rent everything out! I LOVE my wedding but its been a lot of work!
