Putting a deposit down on a photographer before Christmas. FI’s parents gave us a huge wedding donation as a xmas present – I wish I could have gone with a photographer we liked better but appeared at the time to be out of the budget. Cry Wish they would have told us sooner! Or that I would have waited. Sigh.

I printed the wrong meal choice on my rsvps.  And they were a pain in the ass too because I had personalized them all with the guest names.  I ended up just buying plain card stock and reprinting them.  They didnt match the invites anymore but it was better than trying to glue the correction over the mistake.

@aliavenue:  Putting a deposit down on a tent and rental stuff without REALLY thinking about what the implications of an outdoor wedding might be in October for my family.  We ended up moving the venue and losing over $900 because of it.  I shouldn’t have been so impatient to book something.  🙁

@speechgal44:  I hope you don’t mind me asking. Do you mean because October = too cold to be outside? I’m just curious why a tent might have been a bad idea!

Our wedding is 3 hours from the city so people will need to stay the night and silly me didnt realise the date corresponds with the last weekend of school holidays… meaning all accommodation has a 2 night minimum. As far as I can tell people are not complaining (to my face anyway), but I still feel bad!

Another oops was not realising that when it says ‘room fits 60 people’ it means with no dance floor or DJ… we are only having 50 but I will still need to remove some tables to make space and we wont be having a DJ (not like you need one for 50 people, but it would have been nice to have the option). Sigh.

@aliavenue:  Happy to report that I do! Ordered my Augusta Jones a few weeks ago, so psyched! Also glad that at least less than $1k was spent on the first two runners up. Fingers crossed I can sell at least one!

Going to Kleinfeld’s sample sale before I’d ever tried on a wedding dress and buying a dress there for $1800 (regularly $3,000) just to determine later that it’s not the dress for me, and the dress for me is actually a MUCH less expensive ($1000 cheaper) dress at another store….I was able to sell the first dress but lost $500 on the sale.  Gulp.   Surprised
