My dress was inexpensive, but I love it.
Definitely photography. Tom never even bitched about that cost -- knowing it was truly the only thing that I really thought was non-negotiable.
Switching resorts -- whiole we loved our wedding resort and could have stayed there all week -- our honeymoon resort was more luxurious and it gave us a chance to see more areas of Punta Cana.
BD Book -- even though it was lost on the way home. I am getting another one (thank goodness) and I love it!
Details -- whether it's my Army garter, shoes, jewelry, centerpieces ... not necessarily lots of money -- but I wouldn't have done it any different!
Wedding Bands -- I am ssoo in love with both of our bands ... but again, they weren't crazy expensive anyway. :-) (I LOVE to find a good quality deal!!!)

I'll have to answer this better after my wedding. Right now I'm going to say my OOT bags. They will be a surprise for my guests and hopefully, they will enjoy them.
I REALLY want to splurge on the decorated arch and live music for the ceremony, but it will be an additional $1000! With me being over-budget (for picking up slack for those who couldn't afford their whole trip) I really can't justify that much cash for 30 minutes of use.

I had originally planned on going with a less expensive one, but once I tried on the one I went with, I couldn't imagine wearing anything else. It was WAY over my orginal budget, but after showing my husband pictures of the first dress (both on a model and on me), he said I made the right choice, regardless of price.

Once thing I wish I had done was hired a professional photographer for the wedding in JA. I didn't cuz I figured we are for the AHR and those photos would be enough. I thought that the guest in JA would get pictures and I wouldn't need the resort no-talent-photogs and couldn't justify spending twice on a professional photog. But now I wish I did.

Luckily I was just being a spazz and had nothing to worry about.

The two things I am most thrilled about in hindsight are:
1. Welcome Dinner - it wasn't really that much extra money (maybe $1100), but it was a perfect way to get everyone in the mood & getting to know eachother. And I'm really glad I did it 2 nights before the actual wedding so we could all recover completely
2. Open bar @ reception - no worries about anything on this, cuz I probably would have worried if it were on consumption, I'm just that way.
