Hey, me too!  I have no friends.  Or vendors.  Or friendors.  πŸ™  


But good tips, jo.lee!

I have a friendor who is doing my flowers! She gets a huge discount at the flower market but I’m terrified I won’t like how they turn out! She’s also helped me in a dozen other ways and let me use a bunch of things she had in her wedding. I always try to be super thankful, especially since she’s really my mom’s friend not mine.

Good Public Service Announcement. πŸ™‚ Most of our “friendors” are family…familor’s? And the things we are “getting” are mostly family discounts and a cake (which, she is a baker so we aren’t worried), but these are really good tips! I had a friendor-to-be offer to do our e-pics and wedding pics but I don’t like her work so I had to come up with something fast. :/ It was awkward.

This is a good post! My caterers are my FI’s parents. My florist is a friend of FI’s family. My photographer is an acquaintance from a few years back. So far I’ve treated everyone professionally. Most likely because they are all professionals and older than I am… so I don’t feel like I can mistreat them either way. But I’m sure I may have my moments so I need to remember this πŸ™‚

I wish we had a bunch of “friend”ors! I see all of these posts on Indiebride or sometimes here about “budget” weddings, i.e. “We did our wedding for under $3,000!” I get excited and then discover they have art-school friends who are photographers, videographers, huge families who love to cook gourmet food, a best friend who just had to design the invites as a wedding gift, and their Fiance is part of a band, so he and his groomsmen just got together and sang as the bride walked down the aisle…. 

That said, our caterer is a family friend who is giving us the family discount on food. Another family friend is supposed to be designing the invites, but she hasn’t returned my last couple of emails… here’s hoping she’s still thinking about us!
