I was on another UK forum and saw something that really dissapointed me. The bride said her FI really really wanted a particular band. However the band was £2K including travel and accommodation etc so she said they couldn't justify this amount. Fair enough I thought, they are on a budget.
Then reading the planning report further it appears she has ordered fireworks for £600, a fairy light canopy for £300, chair covers for £350 and was considering sequinned table clothes for £35 each to hire.
I'm not against venue dressing but I think it's such a shame if it comes ahead of the "only thing he's really asked for" and he is gutted about it but she thinks with the fireworks she doesn't really need a band.
If I pulled this crap with my FI he would tell me to piss off!
Rant over sorry x
