12 of the Biggest Wedding Budget Splurges That Real Brides Made

According to the Knot, Real Brides tell us where they spent a good amount of their budget—and why they don’t regret it.

“My wedding dress. It was over budget, but how can you not chose your dream dress because of the price?” — Sara

“Our honeymoon for sure! We splurged and decided to completely spoil ourselves flying first class to St. Lucia with a suite that has a private pool and a private butler!” — Brittany

“A rental house for my bridesmaids and I, which will also serve as the bridal shower and bachelorette venue.” — Becky

“Besides the honeymoon, my chocolate fountain! It was a dream of mine to have one, and it’s happening! Me at 13-years-old is super excited.” — Natalie

“My photographer! I’m a believer that you get what you pay for when hiring a photographer. I’d rather splurge and have pictures I can be proud of in 40 years.” — Misty

“My brooch bouquet. So many have meaning and were collected with intention but it wasn’t cheap… but I don’t regret it for a second!” — Melissa

“Besides my dress, I’d have to say renting vintage items—the church pews for the ceremony, vintage tables and settee sets.” — Lorraine Avellar

“The honeymoon to Walt Disney World is by far the biggest splurge.” — Jenny

“My caterer—but will be so worth it! All our friends will approve the food truck food.” — Linda

“Microdermabrasion sessions and a facial before the wedding.” — Sarah

“Emmy London is making me a Gatsby-style wedding shoe that’s been discontinued!” — April

“I thought these 12 budget splurges might make you laugh, but also find some truth. Haha. For my husband and I we splurged on photography, our venue and our honeymoon! I would say those 3 were the most important to us!” – Brittney Jean

    This was so interesting to read. I think for me it would definitely be the photographer and possibly the honeymoon.
