- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
Do you have any friendors pitching in with your wedding?
Mr. MagPie and I asked a good mutual friend to be the cantor for our church ceremony. Not really a vendor, but if we didn’t have a musically-inclined friend, we’d have to pay for a stranger to sing at our wedding.
I love hearing about talented people pitching in with the wedding planning efforts, so please share.

My sister is doing our cake/cupcakes. She’s an amazing baker/decorator and is hoping to one day soon make a business of it. A friend is our officiant. He was my youth pastor. Fiance’s sister is helping with invitation making (she works in marketing). We have such an amazing and generous group of friends and family.

Our reception venue (a golf course) is the place where I worked all through college and grad school. The owners (and staff, and many of the golfers) are very very near and dear to our hearts.
I love friendors!

My cousin and her best friend did my makeup for the wedding. We even did two trial runs prior to the wedding. The outcome was fantastic. Everyone thought they were professionals.

Just about everyone was a friendor for me- photos, flowers, officiant, make up, invitations. The only "outsider" was the videographer and the caterer.

My uncle is a wedding photog in Puerto Rico and is shooting our wedding- but so is one of my closests friends husband who is also a photog. My friends husband is a photographer who travels to Sri Lanka, Birtain, the Phillipines, Singapore and the States for various photography related events (such as weddings, obamas inauguration)…
I have another friend who is making our invitations too.
I would put the websites of my uncle and my friends husband here- but I don’t know if that is naughty… I just really like both of their pictures to look at- so if you want to see their websites PM me.

My ex-boyfriend and his fiance are our photographers.
My sister is hand-making truffles for our favors. [drools]
We might be having various family members make pies in lieu of a groom’s cake.
I plan to ask my uber-talented cousin to play the processional. (As a side-note, I played the processional/exit-music at both of my siblings’ weddings).
We’ll probably hand off our video camera to someone in lieu of a videographer.
Also, I’m DIYing my invitations, flowers and other decor, but I know I’ll have help from friends ‘n’ family.

My photographer is a distant kind-of friendor…
My grandma’s sister’s husbands’ sister’s youngest daughter. Yikes, eh? But she’s really talented and I’d rather hire someone I kind-of know than a total stranger, all other things being equal.
