Helppp! I’ll provide the why in a moment, but first… I need recommendations for hair & makeup and a photographer in San Francisco – all of whom I need to work with a student’s budget. Meaning, the closer to zero the better.
I live in Texas and will be flying into San Francisco on two days before my wedding. The wedding is at San Francisco city hall, just the groom and I. No guests, no attendants.
After I booked the ceremony time at City Hall, the hotel room, and the flight, I found out that the transfer I had applied for to the University of Houston had been approved. Yikes!!!! So now, I am also job and apartment hunting in another city, and will be moving to another city soon after we return from our wedding/honeymoon.
This is why I’m suddenly faced with a greatly reduced budget for hair, make-up & photos. But since there will be no one to help me get ready, and no one to take pictures, I still need these services. Any advice????
And if anyone has been in a similar situation, I’d love to hear from you, too! Thank you all!

You should look into craigslist. Have you heard of it? San Fran is a very artsly city, so I’m sure there are students in that area who would work within your budget. I’m also going to send you a PM about photography. I’m not sure of hair salons, does anyone you know live in that area?
& wow you’ve got a lot goin on! Congrats on your acceptance 🙂

@serabell: Thanks for the suggestion!!! I use Craigslist for all kinds of things, but it just never occurred to me to use it for this!! Now I’m so excited!
My problem-solving capabilities tend to diminish once I’m overwhelmed. This is why I have to ask disinterested third parties (people I don’t know. lol) for their ideas. I appreciate this suggestion more than I could possible tell you in a message board post.
Again, thank you. I knew there had to be a creative solution out there. I just couldn’t see it.
And thanks for the congrats! I’m overwhelmed, but excited. We’ll make it work! 🙂

Yay very glad I could help :). Craigslist solves a lot of things!
& I’m sure things will calm down soon, its just tough when a ton of things hit at once. But I’m sure you’ll make it thru fine & have an amazing & fun wedding :). You’re so lucky, I wish I could have a small wedding, with just FI & I!
