$7000!? Whoa. We’re having a small wedding and I consider our $3700 photographer to be a big splurge lol.

Most annoying thing in all of my wedding planning? My mother. Seems to be a common problem!

@orchidaloha:  Print with either Vista Print or a Staples. I know staples doesn’t do cardstock, but we ordered card stock from Creative Memories, and then the 80-Lbs cover paper for Staples to print on, mounted on that and then adhered to the pocket fold. This is how it turned out.


What province are you in? Do they have a Wedding Guide type booklet? I’m in Ontario and got the wedding guide at a wedding show and literally emailed/called every vendor I thought was interesting in order to get quotes and also I googled like a mad woman. I’m near Toronto and have full day coverage for 2,000 + tax including all digital rights and copies on a hard drive. We saved by ignoring prints/albums etc. thinking if we really want those either we can print our own, or we can get him to make the album later 🙂

Have you let her know that you’re not planning on kids right away? Mine used to be doing that to me but I made it extremely clear its not happening, and if she continued I would not tell her when I WAS pregnant. She dropped it.

Honestly, keep some things to yourself instead of telling your mom, I know that can be really difficult since you want to share the joy, but if she’s going to be negative and shoot it all down then decide on things and do. Or let her know “Mom I’m doing this and I wanted to show you, I’m really excited so please don’t be negative” some people don’t realize they are being “Debbie Downers” so you have to let them know 🙂

@orchidaloha:  I went to staples too.  Just ordered it on white card stock.  Even at 65lbs it made the invite heavier than regular postage…and I didnt have pocketfolds….so just be aware.

I’m also from ON, and there’s no way I’d pay more than 2K on photography…there’s tons to choose from below that price.

@orchidaloha:  Where in Ontario are you from? If you’re around Hamilton check out Pete Stec from Stec Photgraphers. Great prices and they are willing to work on an hourly basis…


Lol you remind me of my first wedding… trying to please everyone etc. NEVER AGAIN. This wedding is about me & FH… people not happy? They can stay home.

Now, I’m gonna make a big assumption, by your $7000 photographer quote, you’re either in Vancouver or Toronto (two most expensive wedding cities). You can definitely get a great photographer for less than that. If you’re in Toronto, PM, I have a suggestion for you.
