Ha. We’ve only spent about $1000 so far, and still don’t have alot of the big stuff. Besides my e-ring of course, my favorite thing I bought were these cute square jello shot containers. [Well, they were cocktail party shots, but I wanted my jello shots to be a bit more elegant]. I also bought cute cocktail spoons, & we plan to top them off with alcoholic whipped cream. Yum!

That’s a tough one because I have LOVED everything so far. I get excited about the really good deals I’ve found (dollar store picture frames, vases at 50% off) but I also get really excited over the splurges (my badgley mischka shoes). 

Favorite splurge: my wedding band. Can’t wait to wear it!

Favorite steal: recycled wine bottles I’m using as a “message in a bottle” guest book.

I thought it would be more interesting if I asked FI, his list is a trailor hitch he had installed so we can transport stuff from Seattle to CA, the honeymoon, and then the food.  The last two we haven’t actually experienced since we’re not married yet…SMH at his list!! LOL.

Mine would probably be our champagne flutes and FI’s wedding gift.

the folding chairs for the ceremony. we’re getting married in a public park and the council only allows a limited number of chairs, so we’re having 14 for the older relatives.

everyone said to rent chairs, but I wanted the cute ones from IKEA that reminded me of cafes in europe. they were $19 each, but i waited until ‘ikea new year’ when they got reduced to $15 each, used my co-worker discount (i was working there at the time) and a gift voucher that we got from the national office, and they ended up being $4.30 each! hell yeah! cheaper than renting.

after the wedding we’re giving two to my parents for their backyard, two to FI’s parents, and keeping the rest for all the awesome BBQs we’ll throw in the future!

I bought some gorgeous wedding shoes:

And I just bought some things on Etsy. I don’t have them yet, but I am so excited!

We got that sign we will put outside, and blocks spelling out our last name for the sweetheart table. I love them because we can absolutely use them after the wedding- I am trying to stay away from too much stuff that says “bride and groom” etc.

Our favours. I had a dozen extra after all was said and done. We use them every weekend for our “Caturday Coffees” and people send me pictures of themselves using them all the time.

Wow its tough to pick just one favorite. I am super excited about my band that FI and I had custom made to rit my e-ring. I just want to wear it NOW!! It cost almost as much as the e-ring did lol. I am absolutely in love w my dress.. Canf wait to see his face and that “1st look” because the dresses Ive been describing to him and showing him pics of are completely opposite of mine  Im excited about the photobooth. My best friends wedding last year had the photobooth and we all really enjoyed it and the scdapbook the attendant made with the pics. Im making my centerpieces so I dont have pics yet but I am excited about those too. Gosh just too hard to pick one lol

I haven’t purchased them yet, but it’s going to be my dino cake toppers!! My FI and I love dinosaurs and make dinosaur noises at each other like 40 times a day (we’re weird like that). How stinking cute are these?!?!
