- Wedding: June 2013
There are some brides out there that actually do have $100,000 for their wedding.
For the rest of us that do not have so much expendable cash, here’s a fun little game.
If you have $100,000(lets keep this simple and say US) to spend on your wedding, how would you spend it?
Would you expand your guest lists by hundreds?
Or would you still keep your guest list about the same size and just spoil the heck out of them?
Since I asked the question, I will lead by example:
I would bring my guest list up to about 250 (wouldn’t really want much more then that)
I would pay for all the flights of all guest flying in
I would pay for the hotel room for all my guest for the night of the wedding
I would probably still have my wedding at the same venue. The only other option I would like is to have my wedding in a ballroom on the top floor of a building with great views in a big city
If I had the same venue, I would definetly pick a different venue for my ceremony then the one that I have. I would most likely go with some type if fancy garden in Niagara on the lake. I would have all my guest park at the reception venue and then I would transport them all in party buses to the ceremony and back with snacks on the buses
I would hire a carribean steel pan drmming band (full band) to play during cocktail hour (currently we are looking to hire a single steel pan drummer)
I would up the anti on decor, bigger flowers, more lighting (I already have uplighting). maybe 2 or 3 gobo lights to put our monogram everywhere
I would pay for all my bridesmaids dresses, and the groomsmen tux (probably still rent those).
For wedding favours I would have crazy huge VIP worthy swag bags, filled with goodies, champaign and the like
I would get a killer orchid waterfall bouquet, with cala lilies and roses
I would still have the same dress made for me, I would just invest a little more money into getting more details into the lace work (the labour can cost quite a bit)
I would pay for brekky for all the guest the morning after
have 3 giant cocolate fountains (milk chocolate, white cocolate,and dark chocolate) at the reception
Hire and pay for the best hair and make-up team in toronto for my bridal party and family
I could finally hire my videoagrapher with that money
I would rent lounge furnitre and set it up in a small section of room to have while the party is going on
I would have many fancy food stations as possible.
Get expensive designer shoes to go with my custome dress (that I already have)
Add as many little details as possible that don’t really matter like monogramed napkines.
Other then that I wouldn’t change much to my wedding….I like the way it is at the moment…I would just LOVE to spoil my guests…so all they have to do is show up and party!!!
