@amethystJCM:  

Still over 3 months away but we recently got our engagement photos done and i’m so in love with them and it’s really made me feel good about spending a little more on a good photographer.

We’re not doing favours, i bought my dress pre-owned for a quarter of the price it would have cost new, i’m cutting corners in a lot of places, but we are splurging on food and drinks, having an amazing 4 course meal at a high end restaurant and having an open bar which is very rare around here normally just beer and wine is provided and spirits are extra. My FI was a chef for 15 years and has turned me into a a bit of a foodie too so the food was one of the most important things for us.

When are you doing your vow renewal? Is it going to be very different to the wedding?

For us?

Worth it: Spending the money for a Church, my dream dress (which was a gift from my parents, thank GOD–It was $1800!), real flower bouquets/corsages/buttonieres, taking a party bus to go out dancing that night (our wedding was in the morning with a luncheon)

NOT worth it: Real centerpieces (some of the flowers died and it cost us $50 to replace the dead flowers day-of), open soda bar (everyone was too busy drinking unlimited Mimosas!), hors d’evoures (there was not enough)

Surprise of the day: Our up-and-coming (read: CHEAP. We paid $950 for 2 hours at the rehearsal dinner, and from 9am to 4pm for our wedding day!) photog turned out to be a photography savant with CRAZY skills!
