Mrs.Z.:  YES!!!! You can always get an upgraded wedding band- you can NEVER go back and recreate or capture your wedding day.

3700 is a great deal for photo and video- 2000 is the low end for a pro and with this line item more than any other I think… You get what you pay for.

The way I see it is that you have one day to get the photos of your dreams, but you have a lifetime to decide if you want to upgrade your jewelry.  If I was faced with the same choice, I would absolutely put more towards the photography and less towards the bands.  I personally love the look of plain bands and they will always look classic.  You could also look into engraved bands to add a little more visual interest if you feel like you need something more with your engagement ring.

If you make good money and can afford it, I’d just go for both.  Another 1500 isn’t much over compare to 30k overall budget.

I think if you’re willing to sacrifice something – wedding rings is where I would not cut!  You’ll be wearing that ring for the rest of your life.  Sure you’ll upgrade later… but that’s just money you’ll have to spend at one point.  If you have the $1500, I agree, just spend it and get yourself a good photographer and the ring you love!
