@junebug12: Definitely push for the video. My sister didn’t have a videographer for her wedding and she regrets it now. There were so many awesome moments that she wants to see again and can’t.

I’m with your Fiance – IMO, hiring an expensive videographer is completely unnecessary.  Just set up a video camera in the back and press play.  Expecially when you’re working on a budget.

My Fiance was clueless. He got very upset in the beginning stages of our planning because he felt as though his parents didn’t have any say in our venue. My parents are paying 100% for the wedding but hubby to be thought that his mom should be involved in every single detail, even though she is not contributing a penny. It was a learning curve 🙂

There will be a lot of things you both with have diff feelings on.  Learn to pick your battles and focus on the things you want, and be willing to give on the lesser important things to you.  I have a VERY hands on Fiance and I learned early on, if we want to get through this, he needs to have his vision and I have mine, and we need to blend them together.  Sounds silly, but the TLC show, Who’s Wedding is it Anyway, is a perfect example of this.  It takes a bit of both parties and blends them together.

Ha. Our wedding in March will be the first wedding my Fiance has ever been to (military, ugh). So pretty much every single little detail, tradition, expense, etc. is foreign to him and requires many links to information and several phone calls (had to explain several times what a best man even was!!!!)


So don’t worry, you’re not alone!

@FutureKMM: That’s what we’re doing too. Trust me, I would LOOOVE to have a videographer (If I had all the money in the world, i would hire SharkPig and pay to fly them out and all that jazz… I adore their videos) but it’s not in the budget for us. 

We will be setting up a camera on a tripod during the ceremony, at the very least.
