Decorations, or something fun for the guests to enjoy.

I’d either just pay someone else to do flowers for the reception or pay for some of the honeymoon – that’s costing us more than the wedding!

I would definately use it towards the hall. The hall is the most costly thing out of all our vendors.

I’d pay someone to do my flowers for me!

With an extra $4500, we’d go on a the most exclusive, luxurious tropical honeymoon we could find.  10 days would be perfect.  But luckily, since we don’t have an extra $4500, we’re still able to find some good deals in the carribbean online!

We wouldn’t have a B list-everyone would get an invite! We’d bump up the cocktail hour with sushi, and we’d have an extra 1/2 hour at the venue. We’d still have a little left over, so that would go towards the honeymoon.

This is a great post!!! I had to go thru my checklist to figure this one out. I would either put my extra $500 towards photography (and that would be like our e-pics or something) or to the venue to allow more guests to come.

That would be fun! I would have a french fry truck come by and everyone can have poutine!

I would hire a videographer or get a nice limo for the bridal party.

I would probably put half towards the honeymoon and half towards more flowers for the reception.

I haven’t gotten my dress yet, so I’d say I’d put any extra $$ that popped up into the dress.

Oh man, this will be hard to narrow down what I would do… I don’t want to be selfish and say EXTEND THE HONEYMOON by a couple of days…. or upgrading the bar to top shelf liquor and upgrade the flower choices.

Totally for the honeymoon. I want to get a SUPER nice hotel in Santorini but we can’t really afford it.

I would hire a florist rather than do our own flowers…it will be a busy day!
