Fun Chat Thread: What is the one thing you are glad you spent $$$ on?
Posted 29 May 2008 - 01:04 PM
I told DH when we started planning and when we found out LC did weddings that I didn't care how much it cost or what I would have to do to get the money - I wanted to get married there!
I am eternally greatful to my MIL and FIL - they footed the entire bill for our ENTIRE wedding at Las Caletas!!! Had they not offered to pay for it, I would have worked 10 jobs to pay for it if I had to - it's absolutely the one (big) thing I am glad we spent the $ on!!!!

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.
I'm sorry you have regrets about photography. But, it's great that you shared that to help someone else make their decision. I was going to count on guests pictures too, but then realized I would regret it. I love pictures. I can skimp on everything else.

Let's see what else, oh our honeymoon, we totally didn't have the money for it but we went ahead and had a real honeymoon because we knew if we just went home it wouldn't feel like we really got married.

1) Pay for my mom, dad, brother, SIL, and niece to come to the wedding. We spent over 6k on their travel, but I wouldn't trade that family vacation for anything. My brother left for Air Force basic training the week after my wedding and that family vacation together is still one of our family's best memories. We talk about Cabo all the time and about how we can't wait to do it again. My family could never afford that type of vacation, so it really was a once-in-a-lifetime sort of thing for us to all be together like that. It was priceless.
2) Our wedding bands. We spend a ridiculous amount on just our bands (don't even get me started on what Jeff spent on my e-ring, despite the fabulous deal he got) but we LOVE our wedding bands. I don't think I've ever seen a guy show off his wedding band like Jeff does. It's truly his most prized possession.
