I wish I could afford a designer dress.  I am in love with a few Christos dresses, but they’re WAY out of my measley $500 dress budget…

@yrret107: have you thought of a faux booth? just use a backdrop and buy cute props (check garage sales, thrift stores, etc) if you already have a digi camera, you could just use your printer to print out the pix.

Yeah, uh.. I want both!  Lol.  A designer dress and the photobooth!  I think I could of gotten the dress, had I not decided early on to be modest and gotten the dress I liked at the time, and now every day I’m like…. hmmm, is this REALLY the dress I’m supposed to wear? 

The photobooth is fun!  Ya never know, maybe there will be a lil extra money in your budget?

The only thing I wish we could afford is an open bar.  We can only manage hosted beer and wine and we’re on a strict budget so there’s no way it’ll happen, but if a wedding fairy would grant me any wish, it’d be for an open bar.

I wish we could afford a wedding coordinator.  Hahaha.  If we had a few thousand more, then I would have hired someone else to do all of the worrying.

I wish we could afford a trolley.  Our entire bridal party and immediate families could fit, and it would make for such cute pictures!  We’d be driving around in our historic downtown area…le sigh.  Trolleys are triple the price of limos around here, though.

It’s not something I really wish I could afford but I wish there was a PRETTY reception site AVAILABLE.  I’m getting married in my hometown (pop. 502) so we don’t have a lot of options for reception venues.  We’re having our reception at the local VFW which isn’t the prettiest place in the world.  We’re trying to figure out how to decorate the walls and hide the gun cabinets.  LOL…..Ahhh….THIS is WHY I got the hell outta there and now live in Chicago!!  There’s actually CIVILIZATION here!!  LOL

I wish we could afford a Big Band instead of a DJ for the reception.  I love live music.  We are doing a string quartet for the ceremony, though!

It’s hard to pick one thing, but I think a co-ordinator would be at the top of my list too.  Someone else to do some of the worrying would be nice!

A Doc and a little more money on the honeymoon. I wish my venue had more hors d oeurve choices but they don’t so money can’t help that.

A photobooth here too!

There was one at a bridal show I recently went to and it was SO much fun!
