I would alter my whole wedding in accordance with my budget. I mean, I wouldn’t buy a super expensive dress and then everything else cheap, I’d buy a more reasonably priced dress and more reasonably priced decor etc. But I guess in order of priorities:

1. Photographer

2. Decor/Flowers

3. Venue

4. Dress

5. Food

6. Rings

7. Music

When a friend was planning her wedding she advised the most important things to spend your money on were the three things that would really last.

1) Rings

2) Photographs


3)…. I can’t remember! Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have write something like this out anyway because we’ll need to pinch pennies, emergency or not.

1) Wedding rings

2) officiant fee (if clergy friend doesn’t offer to do it for free)

3) Attire for me/bf (simple white dress& short veil for me/suit for him)

4) Meal for B/G/parents/witnesses

5) Bouquet and/or something to hold for me

6) camera

If more money:

Upgrade the wedding dress, hire a professional photographer, go to a better resturant/hire caterer, add alcohol, have a studio bridal portrait done

Actually, this is happening to me now! I may be planning my wedding this Nov.! But here are my priorities:

1. Wedding Rings

2. Food

3. Officiant

4. Flowers

I already have my photographer and my dress and that was two of my main priorities before.

2. Party room reserved at a resturant for about 10 family members + us

3. Rings

4. Nice suit for him, since I actually already have a white sundress I could wear in a pinch.

Family and friends could take photos!
