Better food. We are expecting about 30 people at our wedding, so it could make quite a lot of difference.

I would have hired a photographer for my rehearsal dinner.  It is one of my biggest wedding regrets.

So…last minute $500? More alcohol and a car service to get everyone home!

I ended up going with my *dream* photographer, who was over my budget. I decided to go with a smaller package that didn’t include as much. An additional $500 would make it so that I only needed to pay $200 more to upgrade the package. I realize that’s not really what the question is… but it would get me 3 more hours of photography and an album. 

If I could only use the $500 and that’s it…. I would try to get the album and 2 more hours of photography. πŸ™‚ I’m still trying to figure out how to actually do that…

I would have to say…more reception decor. Or for professional engagement photos. We are having a friend take photos of us to put on our save-the-dates. But I’d like professional photos to put on the walls of our living room and to send to our parents.

I would have used the extra money to hire a better DJ. You know…one that actually gets people to dance!!!!
