My biggest splurge was my brooch bouquet that came from Etsy. It cost more than my dress!

Meant2Bee:  Thanks!

HDJacobson:  I used Etsy seller NicolasaCicero I definitely recommend her! Her prices were not as ridiculous as some I have seen.

RedheadMeggs:  With shipping it was $240. Which isn’t too shabby considering that around my area floral bridal bouquets are $150-$200 and I get to keep it forever 🙂

FutureDrAtkins:  Yeah the keeping it forever is what I love about it–I’m huge on sentimental stuff like that 🙂 I’d put it in a display case!!

RedheadMeggs:  That’s what I did! I made a thread about it 🙂 The football cases at Michaels/Hobby Lobby work great for bouquets! Now I just have to wait for DH to put up another shelf!

FutureDrAtkins:  Football cases never would have crossed my mind, what a great idea! I saw your thread, it looks great in the case and your wedding pics are awesome!! 🙂 I googled an aqua brooch bouquet and found this and suddenly find my heart set on it lol:

RedheadMeggs:  I like it, but it’s not my favorite – mainly because of the fabric roses. They take away from how blingy it could really be.

My engagement ring lol, although that was FI’s money, the ring was my choice haha. $8850 on a 0.61ct solitaire, BIG splurge. As for personal splurges, probably $200 for a mobile phone (I don’t do contract, I prefer prepaid). And I spend about $50-$60 if not more per week on junk food.

Jacqui90:  $8k+ on a .61ct? That’s more than my entire wedding cost! That thing better be a D, IF, XXX cut or something or you guys got totally ripped off. Or you have to have a CRAZY setting. Pics?

I don’t think cell phones qualify as wedding splurges.

FutureDrAtkins:  the OP didn’t specify they had to be wedding splurges lol so I thought cell phones and junk food qualified. i know that nearly 9k is way over the average but we did pay a lot for the brand name. (It’s Tiffany) I already know we could have gotten a cheaper price for better specs elsewhere so don’t bother reading me that line lol. Sorry for the huge image!
