Wedding Day Splurge

There’s a few things I’m REALLY splurging on. Things that don’t need to be as elaborate.

The Candy Buffet. Not your average candy buffet. It’s going to consist of 2 large banquet tables, and 1 small round table in between. The round one will be the cake table. The other two will be candy/brownies/truffles/cheesecake, or whatever else. Not needed, but a I def want!

The Photo Booth. We’re buying 2 backdrop murals for it, 2 polariod cameras and tons of film & props. We’ll have a basket/box for them to drop pictures into. And they’ll be able to take as many as they want. Will also do some light staging for it since the reception goes on until.. forever.

The Favors. We’re going a little crazy with them. We’re doing about a dozen of 20 or so different types. We want something for everyone.

There’s other things like the venue itself. It’s a bed & breakfast. We’re taking it for 3 entire days and doing a wedding affair/reunion getaway type of thing. We’re doing coffee, donuts & tea every morning for our guests staying during those time.

My big splurge is pipe and drape throughout the entire ceremony and reception.

@NVACat:  FI and I splurged on the same thing, from the same seller!  FI was all for it because it’s something we could keep after the day was gone.

I splurged a lot I think.  First it was my veil.  I never planned to have one, then less than a month before I decided I wanted one custom off etsy.

A coat to wear to walk in between venues.  It was a sample at CSB. Then I altered and embellished it.

 

The last splurge I could think of is my purse.  Again, something I had just because I was moving around and just held the basics.  ID, lipstick, phone.

ULTIMATE OSTRICH Feather and Rhinestone Purse and Bouquet Wrap reserved for Melisa

 

I’m pretty sure it was over $600 just on these 3 items.  I splurged more I’m sure but those were the first off the top of my head.

The only thing I’ve actually bought so far is my dress. But seeing how its $400 over my original budget its kind of a splurge.

We’re splurging on the photographer.  Once I met him, I knew there was no one else I wanted to take the pics.  Even if he costs $1k more than the runner up…

@NVACat:  Same here, I showed FI the picture with him and my cat in it and me blacked out so he can’t see my dress!  I can’t wait for him to see it in real life :)

White dance floor!!  I fell in love love love with a white dance floor early in the planning but DH and I decided it was WAY out of the budget.  He bought it for me for Christmas. :)

That and the custom (GOBO) were way unnecessary but so made the room special.
