As soon as you get engaged you'll start getting barraged with opinions from your friends and family and everything you absolutely have to do and have to have for your wedding! But what's really necessary, and what's just more of a fun extra?

It's time for you to decide in this week's game... Need to Have or Nice to Have?

    Just a comment/feedback...would you consider condensing these posts into one post each week instead of 12 separate ones? Personally I come to the site to see bride’s personal posts and sometimes the first several pages of the forum are very clogged with this type of similar post.

    I got my bridesmaids robes to get ready in but we are not doing anything else. Waste of money and time (for us, I can see these things being important for some people) preparing for all that stuff instead of the things I really want.

    Agreed - also you're getting married in July 2020 too? What day if you don't mind me asking?

    I think save the dates are important because it gives people time to arrange their schedules' toast to show your gratitude to the ones who helped make the big day happen and not just them but family and friends who help you along the years with the programs I dont feel as if its necessary but it gives guest a clear idea of whats going on. A a rehearsal dinner I don't think it's needed but it would be better to have a rehearsal for the ceremony. I got robes for my girls like gifts for the bridal party just to show them my gratitude for standing. I mean you can do these things if it's in your budget it's just to show people that you appreciate them I think it's okay to do it but if it is anything else that causes you to spend more money like favors which some people leave and forget after dancing you dont have to but I like the finish look of them. If your not looking to spend a lot of money and you're on a budget don't do it if you don't feel like its needed for the wedding because you have to live after the wedding day (like literally one day)

    The only things from the list that im6 including are the favors and the get away cat. My fiance in onto old cars so his buddy it driving us away on a classic Cadillac. I'm doing simple fabots and a large sheet cake from which we'll cut the first piece. Since there is only the officiant, the groom, my dad and myself, no rehearsal is needed, hence no rehearsal dinner. The other things aren't needed either. Not trying to throw a huge party, just a gathering of family and close friends to share in our day.
