My wedding is next September, and I have already been planning it for over two years. I have a lot already bought for the big day. But I haven’t booked a venue or photographer yet, among other things. I’ve already spent a big portion of my budget, and I’m getting frustrated that I can’t get what I want. I wish my wedding didn’t have a budget!
If I didn’t have to stick to a budget for my wedding, I’d go crazy (in a good way)! I’d get everything I’ve imagined for my wedding since I was a little girl. It would be the perfect stress-free day!
These are the 10 things I would absolutely do if my wedding had no budget:
1. Hire an amazing photographer
I myself am a photographer, and I know that you get what you pay for. I would get a photographer who is great at capturing the moment, while still producing a great image with great composition.
2. Get a glamorous cake
I absolutely love sweets, and anyone who knows me knows that about me. I would get a cake that was absolutely breathtaking. It would have blue hydrangeas on it, and it would be delicious!
3. Invite more guests
I would invite all of my family, his family and all of our friends. It would be a big, happy celebration that nobody would forget. I know everybody would be dancing and having a good time!
4. Have a different fancy dress for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception and getaway
I think it would be so fun to have a different look for each part of the wedding. It would be a fun way to show off my personality. Although I already have my wedding dress, it’s always fun to try them on!
5. Get beautiful wedding bands for my man and me
I would love to get a beautiful statement piece that could also be worn everyday. I think a diamond wedding band would be beautiful, and look amazing by itself or with my engagement ring. I’d love my groom to have a very sturdy, masculine band.
6. Have a large wedding party
I would love to have about seven or eight girls in my bridal party, but it just doesn’t fit in my budget. It would be great to have all of mine and my groom’s closest friends and family standing up there with us on our special day. And all of the wedding festivities would be so much fun with a large group!
7. Book a very long and expensive honeymoon trip
My man and I are very busy people, so it would be nice to get away for awhile just the two of us. I’d love to go on a trip without worrying how to pay for everything. Just spending time together in a relaxing place would be amazing! Plus, we’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii.
8. Buy presents for my wedding party
I’d love to get each of my bridesmaids some jewelry from Tiffany & Co. It would be fun to pick something out to fit each of their personalities. And I think it would be so cool for my groom to give his groomsmen nice watches, or something else men like!
9. Buy my man an awesome wedding present
I would love to get my man whatever he wants on our big day, whether it’s the latest iPad or a new watch. I just want to make him happy!
10. Buy myself a wedding present
If I had the money, I’d buy myself a brand new digital camera and a bunch of new lenses. I would take pictures of my husband and me the day after the wedding using all my new camera gear. It would be a dream come true!
If you didn’t have a budget, what would you do for your wedding?
