I think the only thing I would change is that I’d get gold chivari chairs instead of using the ones the country club already has. It is an expense I just couldn’t justify when there are so many other things to focus on!

I would definitely go crazy on the decorations.  Right now I’m trying to do a lot of DIY projects for centerpieces and other reception decor, but if I had unlimited money I’d go straight to a decorator and have them worry about all that!  Also would probably go for a menu with more entree options (just got too expensive per head).

I’d pay for travel for the folks who are traveling, especially our friends from Australia and those who already have declined our invites due to the cost to get here.  I’d also plan an actual rehearsal dinner with open invitation to all, and some sort of post-wedding gathering. The out-of-towners are all staying at the same hotel (we only booked one block) and will no doubt end up at the bar, so we’re planning on hanging there too, and we’re staying in the hotel too. But we’re not doing any finger foods and it’s strictly a cash bar— there will be plenty of food at the reception plus open bar, and no one’s gotten their feelings hurt that they have to buy their own drinks if they end up in the hotel bar, but I feel like a bad hostess not offering something.

I’d invite a whole lot more people! We aren’t really inviting any of our friends — just family and long-time family friends, but it would be awesome if I could jack up the guest list by like fifty people and have all our friends in there with us!

There isn’t much I would change. I loved how mine turned out. I’d probably spent money flying people in who couldn’t be there.

well for starters we would actually begin to plan a wedding. And we would have it in a church and a nice reception hall. But thats pretty much it. I dont want a big wedding, not my style.

I’d move my wedidng from a friday to a saturday, so more of my guests could attend… and I’d spend more on food and include alcohol.

I’d upgrade the venue and get my dream band instead of the dj we booked. Despite this, I have no doubt that my wedding will be fabuous, as-is!

I would have an open bar and have a live band.

I don’t think I’d change a thing!  I’d like to pay for the travel for all my guests, but other than that, there’s nothing else I’d really change.

I would definitely hire a band instead of a DJ.  We really wanted one, but unfortunately there is no way we could afford one.  I would probably also go crazy with decorations and maybe do some uplighting or something.  But overall these things are not important and not having them will not negatively impact the day — they would just be a nice extras 🙂
