Without a hesitation YES! The only thing I would change would be to pick another vendor for our tent, china, tables, chairs, etc. We used one vendor for everything and they screwed everything up so massively it was just horrible for Darling Husband and the GMs and friends who were helping. I wish that had gone smoother. But that’s a hindsight issue 😉 Everything else I’d do again in a heartbeat!

I would do it exactly the same way. But at the end of it, I do get to put a downpayment on a house. My parents gifted us a certain amount of money and said spend what you want, keep the rest. We spent about half, plus we got money for presents from our guests, so we had enough left over to start house hunting.

I’m just a few weeks out but I’m pretty confident in my answer: 

I would do it OVER again, but I would never do it again. 

Meaning… I’m glad I did it this time because I know myself and if I’d not gone through with all the hoopla I would have always wondered about having a “real” wedding… I think it would’ve been a real regret. But knowing now what I didn’t know then? I would never plan another wedding.

100% yes. I would have done everything exactly the same, except I wouldn’t have stressed out so much about it!

just for a contrasting answer, i think i would NOT do it again  – –  meaning, my parents are paying for my wedding, and with all the dramas this has caused, if i did it over i would have a tiny simple modest romantic wedding that i have full control over and guilt free!

I would totally spend it all again.  It was completely worth it.  I know it sounds silly and cliche, but honestly if you are debating between a few hundred dollars and it’s something you really want, go for it.  At the end of the day you don’t see dollar signs, you just have amazing memories of the best day of your life.  And, this is coming from a bride who paid most of it out of pocket and is traditionally very conservative with her cash!  As long as you make wise decisions, and know what you are paying for, and how much you are paying, try not to stress about the cash.

I’d do it again.  We had relatively little drama and it just really made it special to share the day with both of our families!

  If I got the same exact financial help and gifts from everyone I would do it over again 100%.  I loved my wedding day and have amazing memories. 

However,  If I ever found myself in the position of getting married a second time I would definitely go vegas drive through / elopement route.

 

So Kind of what Corgitails said:  Over yes but again no,  if that makes sense.

@MyFavouriteChords:

is there a lock out on how long you have to edit?  I just wanted to go back and spell CorgiTales right.
