    The date is about the only thing I’d compromise on fully. As long as the date doesn’t fall on anyone else’s wedding and tried your best to avoid birthdays and such the date is flexible.


    I just read the prompt wrong. I AM willing to compromise on date oops.

    Hm, well I chose venue. It is definitely our splurge in that it was more than we originally planned on spending, but I just could not see myself getting married somewhere that wasn’t pretty. Everything else is more of a “that will work” kind of thing. The venue is too, to some extent, it is still affordable by most people’s standards, but it’s the one thing I would absolutely not downgrade.

    For me, the only thing I wouldn’t change is the groom!

    All the rest is negotiable, because,in the long run, the rest is just details.

    The ceremony for sure. Everything else is completely unimportant to me. That is absolutely the most important part of the day for me and it is the one thing that Fiance and I both felt strongly about.

    Budget. If it wasn’t in the budget, it was out, I don’t care what it was.

    for me, the only thing I won’t compromise on is the ceremony. SO wants to save the money, and do a cheap court house thing. But I have my heart set on a ceremony, walking down the aisle with my dad and wearing my grandma’s dress. I am refusing to budge on this, we will have a ceremony that I want, I don’t care about the rest of it.

    The dress, as long as I have the groom and the dress nothing else matters. I purposely didn’t buy a dress in a store or tell anyone but Fiance that I was buying it because I didn’t care about anyone’s opinions and didn’t want anyone to try and steer me in a different direction.

    No kids, no exceptions!

    Seriously, I would have changed pretty much anything else if it would guarantee me no children at our wedding.  I would actually rather have a guest not attend than bring their kid.  I know, I know, I’m the devil.  But at least this devil won’t have to hear screaming during her vows!
