$100 a) I would’ve got the table overlays I was eyeing. In hindsight, I should’ve just got them anyway and sold them afterwards. Ah well, no one missed them except me!

$1000 b) Fancier hors d’oeuvres!

6 weeks c) Hmm…not sure… I might’ve been better organized! or not…procrastination is my best friend! 😛

@Season:  $100 is nothing, but $1,000 I’d put towards the honeymoon. In an extra 6 weeks, I’d lose more weight.

$100 would probably do nothing, but if I had $1000 for the wedding itself, I’d probably do a photobooth.

a.  Wouldn’t really go far in my area.  I would probably divy it up and give more tip $ to my bridal attendant and Maitre d.

b.  Paid for my girl’s dresses.  They were so amazing and generous throughout the entire process.  I would have loved to do more for them.

c.  Didn’t need another 6 weeks.  9 months was more than enough.

A) $100 is nothing, so I don’t even know

B) $1000… maybe more appetizers or something? I don’t think we really need to upgrade anything though. 

C) Since I’ve already had 2 years to plan this, I don’t need the 6 weeks. Just get here already!!

It’s funny, my budget was sooo tight and I felt like I needed more money through the whole process but now faced with what I would have done with extra money i can’t think of anything lol.

@Season:  Oooh this is fun!

a) my budget isn’t this tightly controlled.  Maybe it should be LOL but let’s just say I would splurge on the bracelet that is jussssst a little far over the line of reasonable

b) Probably right into catering

c) I am bored right now, I don’t need more time! But I guess I would love an extra month to try to lose weight since I only have 3 months after the holiday 5 lbs hit LOL

a) I’d put $100 towards gifts for the wedding party.  We already have gifts planned, but I also really love to give gifts to other people.

b) I’d put $1000 towards the honeymoon

c) I have a nearly 2-year engagement, so 6 weeks is like a drop in the bucket to me.  I would probably try to fix up our house/backyard more (we’re doing a backyard wedding).  Some rooms could use repainting and some minor fixes here and there.
