That clutch is GORGEOUS!  Have you thought of DIY or getting someone to make it for you?

Satin flowers are easy to make and the rest is old costume jewellery.

Stations during our cocktail hour. I would love to be able to add a mashed potato bar and a nacho station but its just too expensive.

Stillmotion….I would love them for our cinematographers….but $10k is a little steep.

I LOVE our reception venue, but the only way we could afford it was by having a lunch reception. I would have much preferred to have an evening reception.

Photobooth….would love a photobooth.

Ditto Miss Tattoo…I’d love a creative videographer…but it’s too pricey.

The original venue that I wanted, its an old renovated hotel from the thirties. Just plain stunning. I had e mailed them about prices, and I swear it was a typo, they wanted a 30,000 dollar minimum. No it wasn’t a typo, that is really their min. I was heartbroken. I still love the one we have, but that place is my dream venue.

A destination wedding to a castle in Wicklow Ireland, with all my family.  I’m sure what ever we do will be great… just my pie in the sky dream.

Photobooth. DJ. Dinner reception so we could have lights and mason jar candles. Limo to drive us away. 

There is A LOT that we can’t afford and I am just having to deal with me.

There is a lot… but the number 1 thing, hands down, is my dream photographer. He’s over $5k and I just can’t justify spending that!

well i love that i will be getting married in Jamaica, that is for sure. and i know no matter what it will be beautiful.  but with more money, i definitely would have picked a different resort. i am making the best with what i have, but yes, if money were not an issue, i would be getting married at a 5* plus.
