If money was no object I would still have my wedding at home in my backyard, but my house would be a big log cabin and my backyard would be a forest with a lake.

Ahh! I would love to have a destination wedding and pay for all my loved ones to attend! I’m thinking Bali, and I would loooove to have my wedding on water! I would also love to have Florence Welch sing our first dance song. It would be a complete dream.

We compromised on our wedding A LOT due to fnances. All things included it came to about $9000. We made 99% of our decisions based on price, not how much we loved it. Also, we only took one week for our honeymoon, and BARELY took any time off before the wedding for planning/errands/etc. 

If money were no object and I could do it all over again, I would have had the (what I’m assuming would be) $40,000 dream wedding that DH and I really wanted. I would have taken more time off before the wedding to do stuff, so it would have been less stressful and less of a scramble. I would have kept my honeymoon location the same, but we would have went for two weeks instead of just one…and stayed in a MUCH nicer hotel!

Well..

First I’d have offered to fly everyone, since almost everyone had to travel (no matter were we chose to have it this would be the case).

Then, realizing that I’m paying for flights anyway and money is no object, I’d move the wedding to my hometown in Spain.  It’s gorgeous and I think people would be psyched to get a free trip to Spain.

I’d keep the decor/florals, my dress and hair and makeup, etc.. the same.  I’d have a different menu not becuase I disliked mine but because in Spain (again, at least in the area I’m from) wedding receptions are always at restaurants, and the one I’m thinking of is in the mountains with a breathaking view of the Pyrenees.  Their food is great, but nothing like my wedding food, thus the menu would change.

I’d also plan a bunch of events to take everyone to before/after the wedding–a hike in the pre-Pyrenees, horseback riding, whatever.. doesn’t matter, money isn’t an object. 😉

If money were no issue I would have had a full service wedding coordinator do all the work. 

I would have had a celebrity chef – my caterer was mediocre at best. 

And I would have paid for all my friends/family travel+hotels so no one had to worry about the costs. 

But I would have done the same venue and same photographer! I got that bit right.
