What do you judge when it comes to WR costs???

Be honest. We all "judge" a bit here and there! I'm pretty easy going and mostly a live and let live type of girl, but I was catching up on my blogs* this morning and read a post about $1,000 bridal shoes. UM...WHAT?!?! They are the Manolo's from SATC (in pink). 
Now look, I'm a shoe person. I wouldn't/don't have a problem dropping some dough on a Kate Spade shoe, or a designer shoe on sale at Neiman's/Nordstrom/Saks. And honestly, I've considered buying a pair of black, classic Manolo slingbacks (clicky, whenever I can afford them...not on credit or anything). I know I would wear those for a lifetime and since my career is in a more formally dressed environment they aren't something I'd only wear a couple of times). But at the same time I'm like, ehhh $1,000 bucks is a lot on a shoe.

Then I think to myself, I'm a dress person as well. I'll probably spend more than most people think is tasteful when it comes time to buy a wedding dress and I don't really care what people think about it. 

So what do you think? It's really down to taste and preferences, I realize. Some people spend a lot on the venue, some people on a dress, or TWO dresses. Some people are foodies so the food bill is huge. Some people think weddings are "just one day" so why splurge on anything.

But is there anything you would or have 'judged' or side-eyed. Anything you've seen IRL or on the boards that make you go Hmmm. No need to call anyone out (and I'm not) but it just made me think. I'd splurge on a dress, but not shoes. Is there a difference? Maybe, maybe not. And what would/have you splurged on?

*The blog is called Pretty Shiny Sparkly (you can google it, she's weird about link backs and "haters", though I'm not a hater. I like her blog and can't wait to see how her "rustic chic" theme turns out). It's a style blog that turned wedding blog. I was a reader before she got engaged so I didn't seek out a wedding blog! Haha!

    I judge spending thousands of dollars on rings. I feel that it's totally unnecessary. H and I got both our bands for just over 200$ - Mine's white gold and diamonds (an eternity band) and his is Tungsten.

    Idk what I judge.  I think it's such a special day that, depending upon how much money you have, you can sort of justify splurging for just about anything.

    That being said, I don't think *I* would spend a TON of money on flowers.  Yes, I want a pretty bouquet, but flowers die within two weeks.  I don't see the point in spending THOUSANDS of dollars to have enormous floral centerpieces only for one of your guests to take home and have die in their houses after a week.

    <div>I actually almost put something in there about rings. I know some ladies feel that spending that amount on rings is justified because it's the one thing you actually wear every day. As opposed to the dress, or the decor, or the food. I get both lines of thinking. I wouldn't mind having just a simple "plain" band. But I also wouldn't mind a blingged out engagement ring!! Diamonds are sparkly!! </div><div>
    </div><div>Just another perspective on rings:) </div>

    I don't judge much as long as it is within that own person's reasonable amount to spend. If you can afford it and want it, I say go for it. That doesn't mean I would spend that much on it, but it's whatever. Now if someone is going into massive debt to afford their PPD, then I judge.

    I don't judge what anyone spends on anything, unless, like swhite mentioned, they can't really afford it. You want to spend $1,000 on shoes and have that $ in the bank... go for it (yes, I'll be a little envious that your shoes cost more than my dress).

    You want to spend $10,000 on a dress? Go for it. $5,000 on a venue? Have at it.

    But if you are doing that to impress someone, and putting yourself in huge debt to do it? Then I judge you.

    By the way, I think I will now be a daily reader of PSS... thanks for the heads up! :)

    <div>I'd like to say this, but then I was thinking about it and I'm confusing myself. Does anyone remember that show Platinum Weddings on WE? I would often watch that show and think "Ugghh, how tacky! What about World Hunger! Build a community center! Why a 10 carat diamond!!" But most of them were well within the spending limits of those couples (or parents). There's been a few links to other forums where brides show off their rather large gumball sized rings and make comments about how other people with "dinky" rings are jealous (or something to that extent) and lots of us comment on those. So what's the difference between saying "that's tacky" and judging. I guess they are both sort of judgments.</div><div>

    I judge cash bars. I know it's not a big deal in some places but I just think it's really tacky. I think that if you can't afford at least a limited bar (which I don't judge at all) for your guests you need to rethink how many people you're having at your wedding or pinch pennies somewhere else.

    I agree with PP's that I judge going into debt because of your wedding or putting everything on CC's. I think budgeting for a wedding is a really good test for a couple on living within your means - whatever they are.

    I did love those Manolos in the S&TC movie but I can't believe they're going for $1,000 now, wow! I think I'd probably splurge on a dress though - I'm very petite and I would have to get something I really loved and then probably alter it a ton. And I'm kind of a foodie, so maybe the food too. But obviously, I'd scale back on other things if needed.

    I don't think I'm very judgey when it comes to what people spend on stuff in general or on weddings.  If you have the money, do what you want with it.  I'm pretty sure I'd get the sideeye for what our wedding is costing but in reality we can afford it, nothing is being paid for with a credit card, & so I don't see it as being anyone's business just because it's something you wouldn't do. 

    There are things I wouldn't personally spend a ton of money on (invitations, flowers, my dress won't cost a lot but I'll spend a decent amount on my shoes because I'll wear them again after the wedding) but I don't judge/sideeye someone that does. 

    ETA: I lied. I judge cash bars & Friday weddings.

    I'm currently judging myself for buying an expensive dress I will only get to wear one day of my life. I wish I had it now so I could wear it around my apartment when FI was out. And I might just try it on once a month after the wedding and call Progresso to talk about how it fits.

    No seriously I judge those who spend beyond their means for this one day. When you see the numbers and think about what that could buy you in everyday life,-- a used car, a new bathroom-- it kinda hurts to see it go to something like flowers.

    I judge a lot of stuff I see on Platinum Weddings.  It's probably hypocritical, because there are definitely things in my wedding that I would amp up if I could afford it, but damn.  I wouldn't spend $1000 on a pair of shoes.  I wouldn't spend $25K on flowers.  I wouldn't spend a whole lot of money on custom place settings.

    That said, though, if someone gave me 100K with the stipulation that I spend it all on my wedding, I could make it happen.  It would mostly go to food, alcohol, and music, but I could get there.

    I'm in the camp of not judging as long as it is within the actual budget.  I don't really care in terms of the total amount that anyone else spends. 

    I WILL judge if I know a bride spent a ton on her dress/shoes and the food sucks or there is not an open bar.  That I will judge and openly complain about to DH.  Then, DH will judge because all that matters to him at a wedding is the food and the alcohol.  Haha.

    [QUOTE]Oh, Mutley, that's a good point, too. I definitely side-eye people I know spent a shiit-ton on their accessories to look all pretty but have a cash bar or what have you. I just find the priorities a little out of whack on that. But if budget were a concern of mine (which it most certainly will be) I'd rather put more toward things that will make my guests happy than that will make me look good. <strong>With the exception of photography. That would be my one splurge.</strong>
    Posted by LivLeighton[/QUOTE]

    I approve.

    I also judge people that chose an expensive venue with a high guest count that have sucky food and/or no alcohol.  Basically, if you invite me to your wedding, feed me well and get me drunk.  If you are not going to throw a great party, then just don't invite me.  I won't be offended if I am not invited.  If we are close, I would send you a present anyways.  Haha. 

    After throwing my own wedding, I really don't care about being invited to weddings.  I know how much it costs to host someone well.  I'd rather the hosts (bride + groom, parents, etc.) throw a really great party for a smaller guest list than invite everyone they feel that they NEEEEEED to invite and throw an enh party.  For me, a great party doesn't have to be fancy or high-end.  It just includes great food, alcohol and dancing.  For crying out loud, our wedding reception was on a farm and had lawn games.  However, the alcohol was flowing and the food was amazing.  You could smell the tri tip roasting when you got to the reception site.  I don't even eat red meat and I was drooling.

    We spent a few thousand on our rings.  They're the only ones we found that we like.  Also, my E ring is platinum, so I didn't want white gold.  Platinum is NOT cheap, no matter where you look.  ]

    FI and I looked at Tungsten bands; he didn't like them because they didn't have any weight to them.  Our rings are something we will wear forever, so we didn't care about spending that amount of money on them.  We also could afford what we spent on them.

    Good for you that you found something you and your FI like for less than $200, but I think it's silly that you judge that.

    A friend of a friend had a wedding where she invited almost 500 people.  Because there were so many people, the only thing they could afford to host was punch and cake.  I definitely judged that. 

    Other than that, I love going to lavish weddings!  If you want to spend thousands on beautiful flowers, go for it if you (or your rich daddy) can afford it.  :)

    I, personally, feel it's more important to provide good food and plenty of drinks to our guests than to have over-the-top centerpieces.

    She is obviously just jealous of you and your amazaballs ring.  She probably feels sorry for your FI that he <em>had </em>to spend so much money on your ring.  Whatabitchface.

    I think that IF you judge someone else for spending money that they can actually afford to spend (different from thinking they can afford to spend it when really it comes at the expense of something else,) then there is a part of you that is either jealous, ignorant or holier than thou.

    This is different from judging someone who spends money on a diamond when you think that diamonds are all related to blood money.  Blah, blah, blah.  That is a moral judgement, not a financial one.

    I'm of the Open Bar ilk as well. I prefer liquor, beer, and wine. But don't really care if it's beer and wine only. As long as it's FREE TO ME!!! WEEEEE!!! 

    I also judged a friend who bought more than one dress. Not to wear on the wedding day but because SHE KEPT SHOPPING after she bought the first one. It's one thing if it's damaged or doesn't fit for some reason, but not because you can't stop going to the bridal shop. I'm pretty sure she ended up with 3 dresses. I don't know if she ever ended up selling the two she didn't wear. DUMB! To be fair, the one she ended up wearing was far superior to the ones she didn't. So there's that. I'm still judging her though.

    I don't judge unless, as PPs said, the items were out of budget/causing the couple to go into debt.  I'm more of a "its one day" kind of person.  I'm sure that once I'm engaged I'll think about it differently, but when I see the budget amount/break downs for friends' weddings it boggles my mind.  BF and I both agree that we would rather have a small wedding and put the money towards a house/car/whatever we are in the market for at that time.

    I love going to weddings though.  I'm one of the few who don't mind cash bars as much.  But that's only because most of the weddings I've been to had them.  So I'm just used to it.

    P.S. I think your judgement falls under the holier than thou category.  You must be so superior to others who chose to spend money that they can afford on rings.  Your comment referencing it not being 'necessary' is what leads me to believe this.

    It certainly wasn't NECESSARY to spend that much on our rings.  It's what we wanted, and we can afford it.  So what?

    Do you judge people who drive nice cars that they can afford?  Having a BMW isn't NECESSARY - a Camry will get you around just fine - but if I can afford a BMW and want one, so what?  I think it's silly that you would judge someone for that.

    ETA:  I agree with Mutley that you sound holier than thou.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What do you judge when it comes to WR costs??? : *sarcasm comprehension fail*  P.S. I think your judgement falls under the holier than thou category.  You must be so superior to others who chose to spend money that they can afford on rings.  Your comment referencing it not being 'necessary' is what leads me to believe this.

    Oh great.  Yes, PLEASE, let's get into the "if you don't like what I have to say, don't read my posts"  and "this is the internet, people will say what they want" argument.

    Please let's do THAT again.
