My former co-workers and I got into a heated discussion last night over weddings. When one of them asked me what I thought my overall wedding budget would be, I couldn’t give her an answer. To be honest, I don’t actually know the average cost is for every aspect that goes into it. Furthermore, there are many aspects these days that can all be DIY. A long time ago, couples would enlist wedding planners, caterers, photographers, designers for invitations/menus/ etc, and rental companies to provide the furniture and decor, but these days – those things seem a little uncommon, don’t they? Why not just ask your own friends and family to help you out?
I may not know how much I want to pay for my wedding just yet, but I know what aspects I want in it and I can definitely say that I want a second dress for my reception! I’ve envisioned my future wedding gown to be long, flow-y, lacy, or silk, but I’ve always been partial to the short dresses. Since it seems to be more appropriate for a reception, that is most likely what is going to happen. I stumbled into BCBG Max Azria yesterday and drooled over almost every short white dress in the store hence leading me to be inspired to write this post. What do you think readers? Are second dresses for you?
