  • "To which his reply is "You would rather pay $1400 for a photographer than get one for free".  Yes, a million times yes when it comes to photography.

  • if it's nothing like her portfolio/website shows then yes, I'd ask for a re-shoot. If she won't re-shoot then I'd look for another photographer. You don't want to be let down on your wedding day.
  • Two hours of shooting with all the digital images (all being the 62 keepers) for only $300 should have been the first red flag. That is insanely cheap and guessing from it I would say his overall skill is lacking. I would have an open conversation…
  • I'm a photographer and I wouldn't drive 2-3 hours ahead of time to scope out a location without compensation. If it's some place where weddings are routinely held I would google around for images to get an idea and then yes, day of, I would just sho…
  • I had a 30 person, family only (except MOH & BM) wedding and my aunt threw me a shower to which a few female family members asked to be invited (great aunt, one counsin etc) and they came and it was lovely. I wouldn't have gone out of my way to …
  • being both a photographer and having worked in the food industry I can say that you should 1) tip the wait staff over and above ($25ish+) and the wedding photographer tip, for me, would depend on how long she'll be there for your wedding.
  • For coming from such a dry upbringing (just like mine) you seem to have a very odd relationship with alcohol. I would suggest some form of counseling because there seems to be much more going on. Such a visceral reaction to a normal, adult thing l…

  • I have two legal last names- no hyphen. I can go by either or both. It works for me, my daughter has DHs last name and I can call myself Mrs. HisLastName is I feel like it, but I can also go by my very kicka** maiden last name that has tons of herit…
  • okay. or do I maybe give her the specifics? "A 10x10 linen bound album with 20 spreads with engraving"...? I don't want it to be a dollar amount thing, but I just don't want it to go beyond what I can comfortably give.

  • We had a 30 person wedding and these were our rough costs: Food: $2,800 for appetizers, top shelf bar, steak dinner and private room for 30 at a steakhouse wedding ceremony: free- had it inside the steakhouses courtyard officiant: $400ish- could …
  • In addition to all the other wonderful things listed above, I love knowing that my husband is the man and I am his woman. As in, he kills all spiders, fixes broken gutters and takes the cars in for repair; I cook, sing our daughter to sleep and hand…
  • I know my exact center carat size because it's an easy number and my wedding band is another easy number, which makes the whole thing together one easy number together.  I also probably would have asked if FI didn't tell me because I like to know th…

  • and if you ever have to ask yourself "person" versus "material item" (like your title suggests)- your priorities are probably in need of some adjustment.
  • no one has to give you their money for your wedding. find a venue within your price range and move forward.

  • There are a ton of us in this thread who studied German in college- I always felt like I was the only one!
