- Wedding: June 2011
So my wedding would not have happened without the help of our family and friends. I am truly greatful to them all. But we did run into a few issues with friend-ors and I thought I would share my experience purely so others bees could learn from my experience.
Photographer- Is a friend from school who ended up being late- leaving early and getting into arguments with friends and family before and after the wedding. We chose her because I loved her work and was trying to help a friend start their business. She ended up not taking any candid’s ( I literally had to turn to her several times and be like take this pic- which then makes it not candid) which we had discussed I wanted. She posted on facebook inappropriate things that me nor anyone I ask remember happening. And now we are missing ½ our pictures because she said she did not any way to get them to us because our minister said no ceremony pictures on facebook. (we are working on this now so shortly it will be resolved) In the end I would not recommend her which makes me really sad because she is awesome just hard to work with
Videographer- Well there wasn’t one the person who was suppose to was yelled at by our photographer and decided not to cause a scene. (totally not mad at him but slightly disappointed about it.)
Caterer- I work at a cafeteria and am responsible for catering our coordinator was suppose to come and help set up tables etc. but we found out on Thursday (for a Sunday Wedding she was not going to be able to come) I just wish she would have called me sooner
Hair- So while I lived in Indiana a girl did my hair regularly and our families became fast friends. As soon as we announced the wedding she exclaimed can I do your hair well of course you can. I talked to her in March and asked if she wanted a list of people also coming from Indiana to car pool she said no (the wedding was in Kansas). So I let go and was not worried. Two weeks before the wedding she told me “I may or may not be able to come” what am I suppose to do with that? I found a back up plan my cousin who is in school and moved on, worst part is she never called to say she wasn’t coming the way I knew for sure was when I got her gift in the mail the day before.
- Check up on your friends often (annoy them)
- The week before the wedding call all your friend- ors to confirm every thing you want
- If you are paying pay ½ now 1/2 later (we did this with the photog)
- Be patient
In all reality everything turned out beautifully and we are finally married. I am blessed to have such amazing day I just thought I would share my experience.
