    I feel like the fantastic dress can be had at any budget!  Unlike most people from what I hear, we kinda skimped on the photog and put more money into having lots of little details, and the food & decor just how we want it.  To be honest I didn’t realize we were skimping on the photog, I thought $1500 was a lot to pay until I started seeing other wedding budgets!! 🙂

    Venue is most important to me/FI. I want something that is fun and different and won’t need a ton of decorating. 🙂

    I voted for the venue just because we really wanted to be on the water and we found a gorgeous place that we all love that really gives us the vibe we are going for – seaside elegance I guess you could call it. Once I saw the place I fell in love with it. It wasn’t ridiculously expensive to book either, although it was more than some others we looked at. It was totally “the one” though.

    photographer hands down…when you think back on your wedding day, this is the only tangible thing that can take you back to that special day…

    Photography is definitely the most important for us, but food & drink is right up there as well.

    I just got an email from my dream photogs saying they are going to sit down and talk and see if they can work with us within our budget! Cool So excited. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    Definitely the photographer for me. Since we are having a Destination Wedding in Jamaica…a gorgeous venue wasn’t a problem. I want to make sure that I have tons and tons of gorgeous photos to show my family when we return. Since we are using a local photographer in Jamaica, we have to trust that he is skilled. I must say I am kind of nervous about it.

    I voted for the guest list – if I can’t have the people I love with me (yes, that includes all my aunts/uncles/cousins) then it wouldn’t  be right.  Of course the next priority is that everyone eats, drinks, and ‘bees’ merry until the wee small hours…  Can’t wait…

    ummm…you don’t have “surviving my family” or “surviving the day” on your list…Alternatively, I would love to vote “marrying the person I love.” Everything else is awesome, and definately in my top ten, but my sunshine is my #1, followed closely by surviving my family/the day. Having fun might be #3. Awesome pictures would be #4. Finding the dress which makes me look and feel 50lb lighter would be #5. I already have an amazing venue. I want good food, but I seriously don’t care what that consists of (much to the annoyance of my Future In-Laws who are trying to help us find a caterer.) I would like everyone I want there there, but only a few of them are OH MY GOD YOU HAVE TO BE THERE OR I’LL CRY people. Good music is always good, but it doesn’t take too much to make me happy (as long as rap/hip-hop are left out of the mix!)

    Food food food.  I could sacrifice many other things for great food, that’s the only thing I ever remember about other people’s weddings.  Oh, and music/dancing, but that’s sometimes out of a couple’s control.

    My Three Things were: Photography, dress and rings

    His Three Things were: Guest enjoyment – which meant – open bar, good food and all invitees were invited with a guest!

    So these were our “splurges within budget” and the rest we are trying to keep the costs down as much as possible!
