GirlWithARing: Oh my goodness, I am the same way. My best friend/MOH keeps talking to me about flower arrangements, and honestly, flowers are something I really don’t care about too much….at least yet. As long as they are within my color scheme, I cannot imagine not liking them. Not to mention, I hardly know the names of any flowers, which means that I don’t really have anything set in my mind.

Cake, favors, flowers and dress. Although I’ll be having all of these (FI won the cake battle), I really didn’t go to crazy over any of them.

Photog/Venue and music were HUGE though.

I agree, farfrom! We booked our venue and the photog is my next biggest priority.

Flowers aren’t really important to me.  Centerpieces and favors aren’t either, but for whatever reason, FI is all about them–he already designed the centerpieces and figured out the price per arrangement, and he is dead set on having “memorable” favors.

YES! All flowers are pretty!  I’ve given the job of flowers/centerpieces/decorations to my mum.  She cares much more about those kind of things than me, and the florist she chose is really creative, so I trust him to do a good job.

I would say flowers or the cake.  Like you said, I think all flowers are beautiful, it’s hard to mess that up.. to me!  And I don’t do sweets.. like ever, so.. I don’t really care about the cake lol

Videography…I’m not sure we’ll even have a video made.

Ditto for flowers.

Video was my lowest priority.

Flowers. I have a few things I hate, but as long as they are the colors I want, we’re good.

I was all excited about doing a whole bunch of homemade favors, but I came up with an easy, cheap, awesome idea, and now I don’t worry about them one bit. (My mom and I will make chocolate buckeyes, because FI and I are both Ohio State University Buckeyes. A Pair of Buckeyes from Two Buckeyes. Teehee!)

Videography, not even doing it, but that is pretty normal.

Cake. Thought is would be important, but I think a dessert buffet will be so much more fun.

Not important: cake, matching bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, card box, favors, dress

Important: food, alcohol, photography, venue.  And we got a great deal on an up-and-coming photog, so even though it’s important, we didn’t have to splurge!

Seriously? Almost all of it!

The one thing that’s making the wait tolerable is that I really enjoy the feeling of anticipation. If it weren’t for that — and, let’s face it, logistics — I would probably love to gather together all of our loved ones and have an impromptu wedding.

However, the one area where I was very picky was with our photographer.

I would say videography – we had a cousin video the ceremony and first dance but that was it.  It was too hard justifying spending thousands on a video we wouldnt watch that often.

Didn’t really care about dress, favors (destination wedding – did OOT bags), decor/lighting (reception at a restaurant and just used whatever they had) and DJ/band (didn’t have one).

Food and photography were most important to us.  I was surprised that the flowers actually were important to me, but it was really just my bouquet and a bunch of pretty leis.

I didn’t care one bit about our flowers.  I knew I didn’t want carnations or roses, but after that, I just told the florist (my mom ending up picking one because I didn’t want to deal with it!) the vibe of the wedding and she picked gorgeous flowers and made great centerpieces!

I didn’t care too much about the cake either.  I found a cake I loved in a magazine, went to the cake place that was listed as the bakery the bride used, and asked them to make it again 🙂

I’m a photographer, so the photographer was the one area I was very insistent on making sure was perfect.  I’d picked out our photographer before we got engaged, and he was the first vendor we booked after we set the date.

I also wasn’t super picky about the DJ either. We went with one that was highly recommended by the venue and he was amazing!
