Hmm…as far as an absolutely-not-necesarry splurge…a martini louge with signature drinks! Totally not needed butttttttt if we can afford it…I want it! Oh, right, we’re also spending $1200 on Chiavari chairs vs Ballroom chairs…who would have ever thought i’d care about chairs?!? apparently i do!

I’ve already splurged on shoes, haha, they were $200 (orig. $300, but at least I got a deal) but supposed to be about the most comfortable shoes you can get. I’ve worn then to a few things so they already need to be cleaned though :p

That second pair is fabulous! Out of all my accessories, my shoes were my biggest splurge. I had to do it, I mean, when would I ever get a chance to wear something like these again? πŸ™‚

@linguo42: Those are so cute! Good splurge for sure πŸ™‚

@lefeymw: This is what I was going to splurge on but I got really lucky with only having to pay travel costs for my photographer (I LOVE them and theyre professionals not friendors!) and then my food somehow turned out surprisingly cheap! We are using a household name (Brennan) in New Orleans but since I am also using their venue I get a major discount on all this yummy southern food! Oh yeah πŸ™‚

I know its time to finally get married (7 years in the making) when everything kept falling into our laps, perfectly and nearly free!

After a 75% off dress, a 97% off e-ring (yes, I said 97% and i mean it!), winning a free e-pics session, free church, ridiculously inexpensive shoes and hair, getting invites and programs @ cost thanks to a family friend, free flowers (my mom is a genius with all things floral), I have 2 BIG splurges…Photography and reception venue. 

For a couple years now I’ve stalked my photog’s website dreaming of having him do my e-pics and wedding but I knew I could never afford it.  I entered a contest and WON him to take e-pics.  As soon as I go this one teaser shot, I knew that I’d alter my ENTIRE day so long as he could be there.

The venue is almost the same….I’ve always dreamed of having my reception there, but knew I could never afford it.  It pays off to ASK and check things out before assuming!!!!  We are getting the venue (includes food, service, AND decor) for a great price, and it all fits the budget!!!!

My dress! $2000! My catering and cake together are only $2500 and that’s my biggest expense!

Biggest splurge that is so not necessary – white dance floor.  Can you say obsessed?!  There is a parquet floor at the venue but I am all for getting the shiny white vinyl to cover it.  Total price after deliver: $2800.  Gulp…

And my new splurge that Fiance will probably veto is circus performers at the reception.  I originally was going to hire the Bubble Man(does fancy bubbles) but than another Bee mentioned she manages a duo that does circus acts.  Umm…. Awesome!!  Haven’t seen pricing for this but know it is definitely a splurge.
