Hey everyone!!!
I know we all love to make pinterest boards of hundreds of ideas, watch glamorous celebrity weddings and elegant royal ones!
If you could have any ONE THING at your wedding no matter the cost what would it be?
For me it would be lavish food tables set up with live carvers and assistants! The greatest meal of all time with no worry of price! Were doing a buffet for our wedding which will have a bunch of options but man those food tables always look so amazing!!
What would your ONE THING be?

    I would have our wedding outdoors in a field with string lights under the stars. It's so unattainable for me logistically, so that would be my number 1 thing I'd want to have lol.

    We were the same way with the venue. We really wanted the winery but found an amazing venue way more within our budget afterwards.

    For me it would be more flower decorations and all real flowers. We are using lanterns for centerpieces because flowers are so expensive!

    I’m doing a buffet as well, as I call it potluck. A lot easier for me too.

    Open bar for us was the 100% must! Like before venue or anything else! We ended up REALLY lucking out we went with the standard open but the venue put it to premium for free!!! Perks of a Friday wedding bonus deal!!!

    Open bar! Haha. We have about 100 people invited to the wedding, and there's something about being able to dance/party the night away, all on our dime, treating our guests, that I just wish we could do...

    However our venue isn't able to do bottle/bundled discounts on a host bar, so we don't save much of anything by hosting vs cash bar.

    1. Some sort of entertainment like a dance crew.
    2. Fireworks
    3. I would beef up the decor to the point of absurdity. Decor and design are my weaknesses.

    1. A strong quartet just for the ceremony. It’s a little out of our budget
    2. An open bar

    Mine would be venue. I love what I picked. and they are AWESOME to work with. and in our budget. and so conveniently close to the hotel etc. but there is a winery I really really liked. but it would have cost us an extra $10,000 (not counting paying for a shuttle for guests etc). and I couldn't justify it. especially because I didn't want to limit my guest list.

    the other things that are more within budget...but we just don't have the extra right now. I would love a pianist and a harpist for the ceremony. we may get the pianist. and a photo booth! haha

    If money were not a problem/venue would allow it, I would have a firework show at some point during the wedding!

    If money wasn't a problem, I would get married by the beach in a beautiful white church with tall windows and invite all my friends and family to attend. Given our budget, I had two priorities for my wedding - I wanted a elegant and romantic venue for the ceremony and I wanted to make sure that everyone went home with a full belly of delicious food!

    I would love a mini carnival or entertainment like you mentioned. More realistically I'd probably go crazy with decor or food.

    One thing i would have if afforded would be family from out of the country to be part of the celebration. Plus it's a great way of having family together that don't come all this way often.

    I know! Unfortunately our venue doesn’t have wedding packages. You choose and pay for everything separately. They have buffet options that run from $75-$125 per person. And that’s your options lol. Every thing else is separate.

    Wow that’s pricey. Ours are included in the package we picked. But if we were to order it separately, our venue charges 35 a dozen.

    It’s $50 per dozen at my venue. So I guess it depends on how much your supposed to serve per person?

    So far I would have to say that I want fun activities for the wedding no matter what the cost. I would love to have a bouncy castle for adults, a magician, fire dancers, photo booth, etc. Anything to keep everyone feeling young Smiley laugh

    Are you sure that passed appetizers are really pricey? Our package actually includes passed apparizers. I wasn’t going to have our roast beef carved at a station because it’s an extra charge. But now you guys got me thinking. It’s not that much money maybe only $80. I guess then the only thing we would be missing is the champagne lol. My guests will have to settle for non sparkly wine 😁

    I would agree on the food front for sure! We will have an action station for the roast beef. But I wish we were having the full deal of appetizers being served on trays along with champagne everywhere. Haha. Our venue is way to expensive for us to pull it off lol.
