If money was not an issue...
I would hire a top-notch wedding planner like David Tutera because working full-time and planning this life event, especially on a budget in L.A. is more stressful than anticipated.
Secondly, an open bar with top-shelf spirits for guests is vital. I know that weddings are always much more fun when there's free booze!
Thirdly, I would rent one of those light-up dance floors. Cheesy? Maybe. But with a few drinks and awesome 80s music, it would be so much fun! Got this idea from David Tutera's show and when I looked up the cost I realized it would be $8,000 just to rent the floor. So crazy!
Last, but not least, I'd buy myself some insane couture wedding dress. The more drama, the better. I'm picturing something by Oscar de la Renta or Alexander McQueen (channeling Princess Kate!). The wedding party, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen would be outfitted just as chic. This would include hair, make-up, accessories... fascinators for the girls! Ah, so fun!
As for a dream venue? Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown L.A. It represents my guy, who is an artist, and me, the big hall inside is glam, modern and warm, so perfectly!
