Rule #1 – don’t discuss finances about the wedding. Some people just don’t get it.

Our photos is right up there on our priority list and I don’t want to regret not spending the extra money to get pics that I am confidant we want.

And, the bad thing is, I’m sure the relatives have already told others “oh my God, I can’t believe how much money they’re spending on stupid pictures”.

Like I said, some people just don’t get it. Live and learn. It’s your wedding and only you can justify how much you think the day is worth.

People will always think that you spend too much.  Oh, well if they think you spent too much that’s their opinion.  Just ignore them.

My fiance and I are paying for the wedding ourselves. Other than the two of us, no one knows how much we’re spending on anything. I realize you’ve already inadvertently blurted out an amount to these people – just try to not tell them anything else, and ignore their comments. The only people who get to judge whether something is worth how much it costs are the people paying for it. (Oh, and FYI – photography was one of our splurge areas, too. Other than your spouse, those photos will be the only physical proof you’ll have of your wedding once it’s over.)

One of the wedding planning books I read recommended to pick three items that really matter to you and focus on them, because if you focus on the items that really matter to you, you will be much happier in the end with your wedding.  I also chose photography as one of my priorities, and I was very happy with that decision.  I also agree with the bees above – don’t discuss finances with anyone who isn’t writing a check to help pay for your wedding, and lie about wedding finances whenever necessary to anyone who isn’t involved in paying for your wedding.

forget everyone. These are memories to remember a lifetime and blurry out of focus pics are not memories.

The photog was high on my list of priorities too. My head was full of dreams of modern, urban, photojournalistic e-pics and wedding pics. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the price of my dreams.

But, in the end we have a fab photog and he also gave us an amazing deal. It was something that I wouldn’t compromise on.

Just feel satisfied that your wedding pics will be awesome.
