I would never have someone in dual roles but I also disagree with a hard rule against having a friend "work" your wedding. I had a great friend of mine who is an amazing photographer do my wedding. I trusted him implicitly and was extremely pleased. I am still great friends with him to this day.
He told me it was my gift. I still paid him some and also covered two nights of a hotel. He gave me a CD of the photos and I was free to do what I wanted. It wasn't planned but another friend of mine ended up helping him and they rocked.
I agree with just doing the ceremony in the reception space. I have never understood two separate areas when one will work just fine. And I like sitting in my seat the whole time.
This is ridiculous. My cycle happened to hit the day of my wedding. I skipped it by not doing the week off on my pills. Worked great. I did that a number of times over the years for vacations etc.
Not a huge fan of the letters but it's not a deal breaker for me.
My alternate suggestion is to leave index cards and a big cork board out and ask people to put their advice for a married couple. Then stick it on the board. Some will be funny, some serious. And people can peruse them through the evening.
I love yard games so that's cool. I enjoy a good photo booth too.Report10
Buy extra bags and return them if unused.
