What was your first wedding purchase?

Engagement ring - check! What was next? Did you say “yes” to the dress or “I-do” to your wedding shoes? Or did you dive right into the decor and buy a cake topper or card box you’ve had your eye on?

    Before I was engaged I bought earrings, shoes, stamps, and candles. Stuff I knew wouldn’t go to waste if we didn’t end up getting engaged. Once I had the ring I bought my dress.

    I didn't even think of a deposit! That's a pretty smart first purchase!

    Also did a deposit on the venue and put deposits on vendors that I knew we really wanted! (photo, video, etc.) Next on my list is getting the dress and still need to find a florist!

    It's certainly important to book your vendors as soon as you can!

    Since our venue is free, our first wedding purchase was our engagement photos!

    That's awesome that your venue was free! Engagement photos are definitely an early wedding purchase!

    If I remember correctly, first were the bridesmaid proposal gifts! Then photographer, videographer, and venue deposits, then part of our centerpieces, a baking appliance to help us make our own dessert table, and my most recent purchase were all my dresses (for the wedding, the rehearsal dinner, and the bachelorette). Our next purchase is probably my engagement ring - ha! Doing things a bit backwards.

    We didn't even have engagement rings. The first thing I bought was a portable popup gazebo. I removed the covering from it, and used the frame with a covering I sewed to make our chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy).

    Our first purchase was actually our mickey and Minnie ears at Disney world. We knew we wanted to incorporate Disney into the wedding as well as the engagement photos so we bought them there.
