If you had an unlimited budget....

...what would your wedding look like?

I was thinking about this the other day, its hard when you really get your hopes up when day-dreaming.

1. My venue would be the newly remodeled and now modern Deyoung museum in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. They have a beautiful outdoor ceremony spot for $500, but you have to have the reception there as well and the venue is $5000. You then must use one of their approved caterers.

2. I would order all my flowers from a professional and have everything put together instead of ordering from Sam's Club and doing all the flowers myself.

3. I'd also hire a wedding planner, give them my vision and let them run with it.

4. My BMs would be in TwoBirds dresses

5. I'd be having a cocktail hour and an open bar. Heck there would be alcohol which we won't be having any.

n have a kick butt wedding.

    I would have most of the same things, but I'd have:

    1. I would have sent limos to pick up all of our guests so they wouldn't have had to drive.

    2. I would have made sure a florist stayed on site the entire time to make sure every table looked flawless the whole time.

    3. I would have had those darn chivari chairs!!!

    4. I would have hired a MOH so the day of my MOHs could have relaxed & enjoyed themselves instead of working their butts off! LOL

    3. I would have a wide variety of food choices and open bar.
    4. The reception and ceremony decorations would be exactly how I wish them to be.
    5. We would have our photobooth and a variety of entertainment for our guests all night!

    My mom went to a wedding like that. They rented out an entire island in the San Francisco Bay for the entire day. All the guests were transported by boats to the island.
