What’s Your Biggest Wedding Splurge?
Mar 12, 2013
Photographers, flowers, food…all are huge wedding expenses. What do brides spend the most money on when it comes to planning a wedding? We asked our brides what their biggest wedding splurge is.
Today there are not many brides who can afford a wedding planner, but Kim F. defintitely went the extra mile and hired one. In addition, she opted for a personalized menu. It’s not a shock that food will be the most expensive thing for many brides. Sherry V. said in addition to a photographer, food is also her biggest expense. Sam C. agreed, and said that alcohol is just as costly as food. “I’m considering a martini bar,” he added. Veronica P., like many other brides, will be splurging on a photo booth rather than wedding favors or a photographer.
For Nanci C. and Candice W., decorations were a splurge – especially flowers. On the other hand, Stephanie G. and Tracy W. went the extra mile for their guests. “Our Our biggest splurge is renting a cabin for 20 people for two nights, so we can enjoy our wedding, but not have to worry about what time the reception will be over,” said Stephanie. Tracy added, “we didn’t want to worry about guests drinking and driving, so we are having it at a hotel which is a bit more expensive, but worth people not drunk driving.”
“Accessories for myself!” says Jen B. Her bridal accessories will be her biggest expense, from wedding shoes to jewelry and extra accents to make her wedding apparel one of a kind.
For many brides, like Jenn K. and Shonnie A., the wedding gown was what broke the bank. “I bought [my dress] custom made into the exact one of my dreams since I was unable to find one exactly like I wanted,” says Shonnie.
A big congratulations to Kimberly Lynn Lincolne who won this contest and a wedding cake topper!
