Most of us are having sensible weddings, maybe not trying to be as tight, cheap, stingy, frugal as we are…but keeping track of the pennies nonetheless. What would you do if you were this couple who just won $50,000 for their wedding?:
You can read their story over at Weddzilla. What would change about your own wedding? How would your mindset change? Would you get a different dress? Nicer stationary? What things that got nixed due to funds would get added back on?
I don’t know what perimeters were put on them, but I’d fly in folks participating in the wedding if I would’ve won that contest. They’re all coming from all over…bridesmaids (2 Floridas and an Arizona), my bro and his fam are in Texas and my mom is in Michigan. If I could save them that loot, I’d feel good about it.
Less altruistically, I’d be less worried about our bar tab, so we’d go full open bar rather than limited…and kick in for cabs or shuttles or whatnot. Maybe rent a Bentley or something for The Mister and I to get from the chapel to the reception site. My gifts for those participating the wedding would be off the chain!
Think about it for a second…what would you do if someone gave you $50k that you had to spend for your wedding?
