I would have everything at the Plaza Hotel in New York or at a castle in England and fly all the guests there.  I would have a gazillion flowers and a week’s worth of festivities.

Then I would have Rascal Flatts personally sing “our song” Bless the Broken Road for our first dance.

I would keep my ring, but maybe a little larger center diamond.  And have all real diamond jewelry and a diamond tiara.

Hmm… I would keep our photographer since she was Fiance mentor, but I would change the venue, and have a big fancy reception instead of cake and punch at the church. I wish if I had the funds it could be somewhere incredible like Rome or Ireland but even if I had unlimited money, there are too many family members that aren’t capible of traveling anywhere to make it worth it.

I’m with you on keeping our photographer, she is fairly inexpensive but I’m in love with her work!

Can I change more than one thing? #1 would be our venue…it is pretty, BUT it is also a part of the community center so there is a pool on the other end, luckily with a separate set of doors and will be closed by the time our reception is happening. But if I could I would of gotten my dream venue, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with a amazing view of the Detroit river/Canada skyline, and has fountains shooting up right outside it that change colors, they decorate it sooo nicely…I could go on forever.

I would also add a photobooth and candy bar, so fun! And you said unlimited, right? How much do you think Taylor Swift would want to come perform our processional, recessional, and first dance songs live? And maybe Foo Fighters for the reception? Haha. I can dream, right?

I would keep everything I have now, but I would just maake it bigger. Bigger guest lit, bigger wedding party. Oh, and pay for all the BMs stuff.

Oh I want to play!

I would probably change my venue to a historical site that my Fiance and I visit every year. Then I would want to fly all of my family in from out of state so that we could have the family all in one place again. 

I would probably keep everything else the same. I like being crafty so even with an unlimited budget I would probably do a lot of DIY.

I think I would keep most things the same.

I would definitely keep my dress even though it’s a cheapy, the food, the photographer, my DIY dessert buffet, and my picnic.

Does honeymoon count in the wedding budget? That would be the only thing I would change, we’d go on a round the world trip! Instead of no honeymoon at all 🙁

I would also pay the weather fairies for the nicest day ever so I don’t have to worry about rain ruining my picnic.

Oh, and we would also buy some waterfront land, build a fancy house so we could have the wedding there.

And I would fly my best friend over from London so she could come.

Hmmm, seems I have more expensive taste than I thought!

What it the number one thing you would keep from/for your wedding?  
i would buy the island we were married on and live there

What is the number one thing you would change?
the time we married – 1pm on the beach was sunny and HOT and the minister kept telling the band to play one more song

@FloretteLiz: Ooh, I like that. Okay, new better idea for me! Have my dream Disney wedding and fly everyone out all-expenses-paid.

Hmmm… I would have…

1. totally kept my dress! I wouldn’t have traded a Vera for my dress!

2. had a big fun band instead of a lame, monotone DJ! There was band in particular that played a lot of old funk music, some classics and some modern music as well, I loved them. But they were pricey so I went with the DJ that my venue suggested. Then I saw the band playing two weeks after my wedding at a local park and everyone was going crazy when they heard them play…it would have been amazing!

1.  I would keep my band and venue

2.  I would buy my $8200 dream dress, and get my $7000 photographer (just for the hours – i’d also have to fly him down from Brisbane and put him up for 2 nights while he shoots the rehersal and entire wedding day!)

Ooh! Love these!

I would keep my venue! We’ve booked a gorgeous Scottish castle with a huge marquee and gorgeous gardens. I wouldn’t change it for the world. (I’d also keep my photographer and the wines we’re serving.)

I would change my caterers. It’s not that I don’t love them, but if I could have Martin Wishart doing the catering I would. (I’d also book the Barenaked Ladies to play a set for us and plan and after-hours burlesque club for the end of the reception.)

I’m actually pretty happy with my wedding. We have almost everything we want and I’m hopeful that it’ll be seen as a classy wedding.
