Just curious and hope to read some funny stories. What are some things that you ladies think a couple should not skimp on for a wedding? I'd say food, liquor (if your guests drink, decor, and photography. I recently went to a wedding where the portions were very small and I couldn't help but wonder if it was because they invited more people than they could afford...I didn't even get a piece of cake and they ran out of liquor in the first hour and a half. Photography is another big thing because I wouldn't want my wedding pictures to look like someone took it with a disposable camera. Decor is a biggie for me, too. It really sets the tone for your event...plastic plates and utensils are a NO NO.
But I am going with real touch flowers for my bouquet and centerpieces. My invites are sip-n-seal and our RSVP is online. Those are two things I couldn't bring myself to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
