Oooh, this was a hard one! I think what’s most important is that it’s a great party! But, I didn’t think the music alone would be a indicator of that, I think it’s a whole atmosphere thing so I voted for photography, because the only thing better than an awesome party is having amazing pictures to remember it by!

I wanted good food and a fun time. I think we’re going to get it!

Our three big ticket items are food, music and photography! I really feel like people should have a great time at our wedding and we’ll have the photos to remember it for years to come!

Hands down, PHOTOGRAPER!
I honestly DONT remember food from weddings. And guests who get drunk don’t remember much, period 🙂 At the end, the food is crumbs, the dress is shoved in a box in a closet or attic, flowers die and even if preserved don’t retain the full beauty… Linens get returned, candles burn down… only one thing makes the memory last as vividly as when it occurred. Photography.
ETA: not that I’ll skimp on food because guests will remember a BAD meal. But it doesn’t need to be the best of the best… if that makes sense.

I voted Music, but it was really hard to choose. Everything seems so important! And they kind of tie in together. I’ll say the biggest/hardest decision I had to make was choosing the dress. The music was a very important decision since we really want people to enjoy thier night and dance. Food no one cares about, let’s be honest – as long as there’s enough of it and it isn’t terrible! Photography no explanation needed very important so I easily could have voted for Photography.
The most important thing to me on my wedding day is that everything goes well. We are all happy and healthy, vendors show up and perform as promised. But the thing I remember most about weddings is how much fun I had and that usually has to do with the music.

I was suprised to see food up so high. The only wedding I’ve been to was our own, but everyone I’ver talked to said that they barely ever remember the food, abd the look and the feel of the event, and having fun in general is what they remember. So we put our second and third priorities into the venue and all the little details that made things fun for our guests.
We also served a good meal, and people said they loved the food. But yeah, we definitely got the cheapest food package we could. No one even noticed.

Photography for me too. Someone mentioned it being the only “tangible” thing left from the day – I agree! Plus with the new formats out there for albums, I know that it’s going to be something that I look at often and will be worth the expense!

Our venue was our first priority. We knew that we wanted to have our wedding there long before we got engaged.

Venue, though food is a close second.

That’s a tough question. I would say photography followed close by venue. I really want wonderful pictures to remember the day by.
