So I had my first WTH moment with my FH today. I was talking to him about making our invitations. I was trying to explain what I wanted to do and I couldn’t find anything premade or online that I liked. I then gave him an invitation book and asked him if he saw anything in it that caught his attention. He looks for a few minutes then says why are they so expensive. I look at the ones he’s looking at (cheesey cheap looking ones lol) they were $115 for 100 I was like um those are cheap ones. He then looked so confused and couldn’t seem to grasp why they are expensive then also couldn’t seem to understand why I am making ours if it’s not to save money. I was taken back a bit because this was the first time he cared what something cost. It was just funny how he really thought they would be $50 tops for the invites. Men sometimes. Oh and we don’t have any budget issues so the fact they are more isn’t going to affect that at all. Just a funny moment I thought I would share. Anyone else have a moment when you just thought DUH!

Yes!!! I bought 3 packs of invites that already has the paper,envelopes,rsvps,etc.And the paper is already cut into the correct sizes,etc.All u have to do is print.
I think each pack has about 30-40 invites in each pack.
Anyway,my Fiance did not undertsand y I bought 3 packs of invites!!He thought that we use whats in the first pack and then buy paper for the rest of the invites,cut that paper into the correct size,etc!!!WTF!!!
It took me A LONG time to tell him that that is so cheap and beyond ghetto!!I told him that each pack has 30-40 invites and then I had to explain that it includes the paper,envelopes,ribbon,rsvp cards,etc.I told him we cant make that up by ourselves!!!We cant have invites that do not match the others!!!I REALLY WANTED TO TELL HIM DUH!!!! And yes I rolled my eyes several times,though I shouldnt have.

Yup. Fiance works for a company that does photographers’ websites, and was flabbergasted at prices for wedding photography. And I’m keeping our photography budget super low, already. I don’t know, maybe he thought we should hire someone completely new to the business to… take photos of the ceremony and then the traditional family shots and then leave or something? I don’t know what he thought, or how he didn’t have any idea of normal price ranges. He still has no idea except for what I’ve told him. And usually he’s the one that researches the bejeebus out of everything! I don’t get it.
