Quality of food and wine!!  That’s the biggest part of our wedding and we’re so excited that it’ll be top notch!

Hmm.. so far we haven’t ‘budged’ on the whole no kids at the reception rule. Other than that, all our parents suggestions have been great and we are happy to compromise (Hope I’m not jinxing myself here). For example we really wanted a DJ, but my Mom convinced us to go with a band.

Some things off the top of my head: the colors and our vision/theme, the alcohol and having an open bar at the reception, the type of food, a military sword arch after the ceremony, and the type of flowers. I’m sure there’s some others but those immediately came to me.

Ha my Fiance is really easy going with planning and making decisions but a few things he is adament about is having a traditional bride and groom wedding topper for our cake and having a “badass” exit with a classic muscle car.

A great photographer! We wanted to ensure we were 100% satisfied with the quality and amount of photographed memories. So glad we stuck to our plan on this one! =)

Also the open bar. That was definite from the beginning.

Excluding my a**hole alcoholic uncle, his b**h wife and their kids from the guest list. Family they may be but they are terrible terrible people and I would rather elope than have them there.

The amazing photographer!

HAD to have great pictures! Even though it cost about 4000 dollars. Le sigh.

for me photograpgy. I’m an avid photographer and it’s very hard to find a photographer in our wedding area that can pass my questionare and be in our budget. 

I’ve also looked outside, but I’m not paying $400 for someone to travel from 2 hours away. That’s just crazy.

Photography is our number one non-compromise as well as great food and amazing location.  Oh, and live music.  🙂

Food and alcohol–we’re making many of our guests travel quite a way, so I want to make sure that we treat them to an amazing meal!

Open bar, high quality dress and no religion in the ceremony. (LOL, no god, yes booze! But our families are ethnic Catholics and Greek Orthodox, not many teetotallers.)
