Photographer and centerpieces… but he really loves this place that makes cheesecakes near our house. So, he is willing to pay (well, ME pay) $8.00 a CUPCAKE and enough for 2 for each of our 200 guests…. but a PHOTOGRAPHER is a waste of money! lol. he hasnt won THAT argument! — and wont!  haha He claims that is the ONLY thing he wants… so why cant he get something on OUR day.

They are just so silly. 🙂

LOL… he thought the whole thing was a waste of money and that we should have just eloped.  Kidding, sort of….my husband actually didn’t comment on the cost of anything and trusted my spending for everything was reasonable.

We haven’t gotten married yet but he keeps telling me that my Chivari chairs are a waste of money,  but I refuse to budge, lol!!

He was confused that I wanted a photographer! HELLO, its our wedding. We are having a small wedding, so I guess he just thought it was too much fuss, plus he hates to have his picture taken. He came around when I found an amazing photographer at a great price!

He didn’t think we needed a videographer, so he nixed that idea real fast. He didn’t see them as a benefit, he said a photographer would be just fine.

@eimajleigh: oh my, we had the same argument! He was still holding strong to it until I showed him the (still nice) folding chairs. He’s like “oh no, chivari it is, those folding chairs are hideous!” lol.

Opposite problem for me… FH, mom, and MOH want us to spend more money. AND, mom makes comments like, “oh, just get it and I’ll cover the cost” but she’s already contributed more than she can afford and it’s for things we don’t need to have, like upgraded chairs.

@mittens111211  SHOOOT, I wish my mr would see it that way with chairs. I really wanted the chavari ones, then I decided it was too much money for a chair. and he is happy with that but I wish he would have seen that our ugly chairs are indeed ugly!! lol LUCKY LADY!! hahaha

FI doesn’t understand why I want to spend thousands of dollars on a photographer when we’ll get a “house photographer” for an hour included in our package. Um, because I want nice pictures before, during and after? Our wedding day is not going to be an hour long…
