Not quite worth it, entirely …
I spent a lot of time (not too much $ though) on them, and even though I loved them and thought they were beautiful, we had so many people come late or close to late that they didn’t take them. We have at least half left over, if not more than half.
2. Exact, specific details
Our minister read a different version of our chosen passages, and it didn’t matter in the end. We were so happy in the moment that honestly I didn’t notice until halfway through, and then I had to work to supress a giggle. (Both times they were the correct passages, but not the correct translation.) Oh well!
I loved our favours, which were jars of wine jelly (we were married a winery) and ok, everyone else did too. But they cost more than I had initially anticipated, and with that taken into account … meh. We probably didn’t need to go so big with it.
What WAS worth it:
1. Our flowers
I put a lot of thought into our flowers, and our florist was amazing. Worth every penny. They were amazing, everyone commented on them, and I’m still hearing about how gorgeous they were.
2. Professional hair & make-up
I know some folks out there are great at doing for themselves, but I am so glad we went the professional route. Everyone looked amazing, and it really shows in the photos.
At the end of the day, you will be married to your dream person, and it will be amazing. The little things will not jump out at you, I promise. Don’t make yourself crazy over too much DIY or tiny details or whathaveyou. Pick a few things that matter, go at them, and move on.
