I wish I could have had Still Motion videography…  but that was just a distant dream!  No use thinking about what was never to be!

I’ve got two: First, I wish I could afford an open bar…probably not going to happen. I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll at least get SOME sort of alcohol! And second, I totally wish we could afford some crazy-amazing letterpress invites.

I’m also dying for a photobooth — a REAL photobooth where people can pull the little curtain and get their picture taken a la Paris Photomatons and Amelie (one of my favorite movies!).  I’m sure we will end up going for the fauxtobooth, which will be great as well, but in a different way…

I wish I wouldve had enough money for chargers for the tables although they were unnecessary.  I did the photobooth, definitely worth the money!

for the fauxtobooth ladies, if you are hiring a lighting company, check with them to see if they have a green screen, they can definitely still put you wherever you’d like to be and it may be cost effective.. if this is important to you, definitely go for it and cut corners somewhere else if you can…

My wedding is already over, but I wish I could’ve afforded a designer dress. My dress budget was $1200 and I REALLY wanted a Monique Lhuillier dress (who doesn’t?!!?!)

Photobooth, a “wedding breakfast” for all hotel guests, martini bar, trolley for transportation….sigh…but none of this really matters!?

I wish we could have afforded to go on a longer, fancier honeymoon.  We really wanted to go to St. John, USVI, but just couldn’t afford it.

My wedding! heh. 🙂


I’d love a photobooth, or a designer dress, or a limo, or even something as basic as someone else doing our invites. i like DIY, but its stressful and time consuming.
