I thought you meant the fast food place! And I was like “uggh… trying not judge but…” I’m glad it’s not. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I would recommend a pro for most of those services if it’s in your budget. I think so much can go wrong and can really stress you out otherwise!

ETA: we are having a friend shoot video, because it’d be a friend or no one. It’s not nearly as important to us as photography.

@lilyfaith: So did I!

@bridepower: you might want to change the title of the post to K of C ;o)

Agree with lilyfaith to stick with pros if they’re in your budget.

I was like… is KFC catering? I know some KFCs have buffets so I thought maybe they did catering too. Like lilyfaith, I was trying to read with an open mind… Oh I’m so freakin’ happy it’s not being held in a fast food restaurant! ๐Ÿ™‚ *phewf*

$4000 sounds like a good deal to me… Our photographer (for 6 hours) starts at $4600!  I’m sorry your plans have changed, but good for you for sticking with your date & just making it happen! ๐Ÿ™‚

I would say a limo is not at all necessary, a videographer is a maybe, and photos are important.

@MissBurgundy and Tulip: Like a VFW or Elks Hall.

I think $4000 is totally reasonable!! Read over your contract as they usual include a description of what’s due after a certain time frame has passed (e.g. 2 months prior – full balance is due no matter what, 3 months prior – 85% of balance is due, etc.)

Well, I will say, if you took the $4,000 and got yourself a kick a$$ photographer, which you could with that budget, they would make your wedding look like it wasn’t in a KoC hall! I could be biased, but of that package, the Photographer is most important, than DJ, then limo and video are just luxury’s. But, spending the money on a GREAT photographer will make your day look like you had your old budget…. and thousands more.

Also, while it seems like a “good deal” if the quality of work isn’t there it’s not. And I will say, I usually see those “combo” places stuff and it’s not usually that great…
