You can take the question however you want – specific or broad!
As I think about it, my Top 5 Priorities are:
1. An authentic ceremony that FI and I feel really happy and comfortable with
2. An environment where guests can have a good time and feel like we were thoughtful of them
3. Decor and overall “feel” of the rooms
5. Photographs (including photobooth)

Photography and food are my big ones. SO is a photographer and we are both pretty big foodies – actually we’re total food snobs.
I agree with you on the ceremony and guest appreciation too.

@NAvery: 1. Meaningful religious ceremony (we’re Catholic) that my guests actually attend!
2. No drama with my mother or sister day-of (asking for a LOT) lol
3. Unforgettable food and drinks
4. Blingy wedding band (last forever and I don’t want to ever “upgrade”)
5. No health issues (this means preventing migraines and ibs symptoms day-of!) lol
Bizarre…. but important list!!

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
1. Awesome pictures
2. Awesome video
3. FUN. Fun atmosphere, lots of laughing and giggling, happy people… just FUN
4. To be with FI as much as possible (I know we’ll be together for first look and ceremony but I don’t want to get separated too much during the reception and stuff)
5. to be married, yay!

1) Having a ceremony which is personal to us. My aunt is the registrar marrying us, so she’s going to work really hard to sort out the perfect ceremony
2) Great food
3) A relaxed feel
4) Having our community of friends and family around us, especially Bridesmaid E who’s flying back to the UK from New Zealand!
5) (Fingers crossed!) Having enough organised beforehand that the couple of days before the wedding are reasonably relaxed

I think loving the ceremony/having it our style is obvious so I didn’t include them!

Photography – you gotta look at those photos forever!
Candy Bar – I’m a sugar fiend so this is something I absolutely wanted
DJ – I want people to stay around and have fun
Looking hot – this is my only time wearing the white dress so I want to look my best
