PHOTOS!! I would never skimp on photography! Almost everything else will only last for the day but photos last you a lifetime! 

I also didn’t want to skimp on my dress and food. Well, I tried not to skimp on anything other than what I could make myself so we’ll see how it turns out!

Just reading the title, I said photography. Videography is also important to us, but photos are nice and quick for everyone to look at and the videos will only get whipped out for special occasions. I think I would rather have fewer people come and get a nicer venue. In your case I would get someone whose work you find impressive. You’ll regret it otherwise if photos are that important to you.

Photography and rings are the only things that make it past the day and I refuse to compromise on either front.

Dress. Suit. Photographer (luckily we have a gifted pbotojournalist pro in the family, so it’s half price). Good food & open bar.

All the things that will last and that will affect our family & friends’ experiences.

I said PHOTOS too ๐Ÿ™‚ Luckily my Fiance agreed immediately and we had chosen a good “mid range” photographer even before we were 100% on the venue.

The second thing we wont skimp on is providing good food and drinks. So we have limited our numbers to 50-55(max) so we can afford to give them all a great night rather than scrimp just to fit more people in.

I personally think it is VERY important. I’m not going to spend thousands on pictures, but I will spend enough to get a Photographer that I like.

Look at it this way – you put tons of money, time, and effort into your big day. The only thing, besides your own memory, that’s going to document it and let it “live on” will be the pictures that are taken. For this reason alone I’m going to be really careful and picky in choosing my photographer.

@Aure: Oh yes and rings… thou we did bargain hunt for them and found FIs ring online for $1500 less than in the stores here (I will add Australia is expensive for rings esp if they are “different” (ie more than just a plain band)).

Rings and my dress. Everyone always waits for, admires and has the most comments on the dress… and the rings are forever so why not get amazing rings you love? We definitely didn’t skimp on either item.

@MissTX:  Definitely photos and video for me since these are the only 2 souvenirs you’ll really have. Also, a friend of mine recently pointed out to not skimp on hair and make-up because after it’s all over and see your pictures, you should love how you look in the pictures.

@ShellVee: Yeah, rings are a big thing for me. My Fiance isn’t thrilled with my wanting to drop bank on them but I won’t back down on that one!
