A wedding game- Add one thing & take one away
Posted 29 April 2009 - 12:46 PM
For those married:
If you could add something to your wedding, what would it be?
What would you cut to free up the money?
For those to be married:
If you had a $500 wedding stimulus check to add something that you are not already having, what would you add?
If you had to cut $500 from your budget, what would you cut?
I'd like to add a mariachi band to play right after the ceremony. As soon as we were married, we had a champagne toast. But, then I felt like everyone was looking at us like, "what do we do now?" I think a band would have increased the excitement & taken the focus off us so we could just enjoy the moment. I get really uncomfortable as the center of attention. I also think it would have made for some really cool pictures.
To free up the extra money, I'd cut the OOT bags. I had fun making them, but they really were not needed. Most of our guests only stayed 3 nights & didn't even have time to open the bags. I think they would have enjoyed a band more.

taking away would be some of my over the top florist bill

If I had to cut $500... I wouldn't have bought my first disaster of a wedding dress for $527!!! GRRRRR!!!!
And if that doesn't count, then the bridesmaids could have paid for their own makeup & nails... but I treated them instead.

i would cut the entire BFW (our at home wedding).
i would add the entire wedding at Las Caletas in puerto vallarta.

To give up, I would have to go with the snorkel tour we arranged. It was great fun, but only about 1/2 the people went (and DH didn't!).
Happily married since 2008

To cut $$, I think I'm considering not doing OOT bags and just doing mugs for everyone.
For me: If I had more money, I would help pay for some of my wedding party.
To cut money, I might try doing my own hair and makeup or cut the cake (so to speak).

If I had more money, I would have paid for all of the wedding guest to do some sort of a day excursion together.
I would have brought more decroations. I felt like it wasnt wedding "ish" enough.
I would have cut out......not upgrading my cake. I should have gone with a simple one tierd cake, I didnt eat any cake, and im not sure how many of my guests did. I just remember leaving for the night, glansing at the cake, and thinking that there was a lot left over.

In retrospect, I loved everything about my DW. But, if I could, I would've added 2 things, the steel drum band to play right after the ceremony, just to give it more of a "Jamaican flare" & fire dancers, had I known that the dancers were an option. I think my guests would've gotten a big kick about the fire dancers.
Hmmm....what to take away is a tough one cuz I think we were pretty basic with all of our details. The one thing that comes to mind is my dress. Although I loved it & it wasn't over the top expensive, I sometimes think that I should've gotten a sexier or beachier dress...if that makes sense....& it may have been less expensive.
