My shoes and our flowers. I doubt the amount we paid for either would be considered a splurge to most other brides but considering we were never going to have fresh flowers and now we are and the shoes are over $100, it’s a big deal for me.
I’m happy with our decision with the flowers but regretting the shoes since, although they fit when I first bought them, they are now too small.

Photography is the biggest splurge for us.. we really wanted photos to remember our day.
Food/alcohol are a close second.

@loveinthelibrary: I would say our venue (ceremony and reception) was the big splurge. Since we are having a smallish wedding (prox 74 guests incl. wedding party) we thought it wouldn’t be as expensive but then i fell in love with a more expensive location… 🙂

My daughter picked these as her most wanted splurges:
high quality photographer
la tovola sequin linens
surprise flip book booth

The thing we’re spending the most money on is the catering, and I’m very happy about it and wouldn’t change it because our caterer is awesome and I know my people love to eat!

@Nikkimcq: I did the same, budgeted for ~$1000 and payed $2200 . I do feel guilty about it but I have never seen a dress like it (IRL and the bee) and I love it!
My most expensive item is the photographer but she is definitely worth the price.

Catering! Spent half the budget! But I figure it’s the only thing that truly EVERYONE gets to enjoy
