    We really only have 2 at this point: my dress and the alcohol. Venue is important, but I dont see us splurging in it. I'm torn between going all out on my dress and being fiscally conservative, but good wine and an excellent bartender are a must.

    By cost alone: 1. catering, 2. venue, 3. photography

    But the things I have probably spent more on compared to others with my same budget: 1. floral, 2. alcohol, 3. wedding party gifts

    Venue/ food, and dress! We have a small budget and we鈥檙e able to stay within or means or go below even for things like Save The Dates (vistaprint) and flowers (enjoy flowers) so I was able to splurge on my dress and we were able to add a few features to our venue

    Venue (which included food and alcohol), dj/entertainment, attire. Those were my top 3 places I was willing to splurge - but ended up coming in under budget on ALL of them.
