I Asked, You Answered -- BRIDE EDITION!

Hi, all!

My name is Kendall Meaders, and I am the Owner and Founder of KenzKustomz. 

Every week or so, I like to hop on our Instagram Story + ask your opinion on everything wedding and bridal-related. As my wedding approaches quickly (less than 100 days, eep!), and I still have many details to finalize, you guys came in CLUTCH for all of the last-minute suggestions regarding Honeymoon destinations, bridesmaids fits and more. There were so many suggestions that I wanted to put in a blog for all my fellow brides! Find my wedding Q's + your top A's below<3 

XOXO, Ken

Q: "What is your Most Worth-It/Least-Worth You Spent $$$ On For Your Wedding?"

Copying and pasting your answers for this one - you had AMAZING insights!

MOST Worth-It:

  • "Photography/Video is the best splurge ever." 

Btw, this one ^ was, without a doubt, your top answer.

  • "Worth it: Day of Coordinator, live music at cocktail hour, good photography and an open bar."
  • "Wish I would've had a wedding planner/coordinator from the start!"
  • "Venue! Most memorable thing at a wedding. Also hair and makeup, you have to feel good!"
  • "We have games that guests could play. It was so fun and everyone enjoyed!"
  • "Worth it: violinist."
  • "Cocktail Entertainment - best decision"
  • "A worth it is the DJ! Spend the extra money because they get the party started."

LEAST Worth-It:

  • "Not Worth It: Dessert Bar, aisle flowers, aisle runners."
  • "Least worth it is cake."
  • "Programs weren't worth it! Guests barely looked at them and they ended up trashed!"
  • "Not Worth it: Real flowers (I had fake ones and they looked even better than the real ones!"
  • "Elaborate invites and deserts were not worth the $$$."
  • "I wish I didn't spend as much money on tables, decor, etc."

My favorite piece of advice I saw on this response post was to look at the big picture. What will you (and your guests) really remember at the end of the day?
