Chivari chairs, favors
Chivari chairs, favors
chair covers, moss covered letters, his groomsmen’s gifts (keeps saying they are simple and not to spend money on them lol!)
@VegasSukie: Haha… it’s funny you mention those items… we aren’t having favors, or a cocktail hour, or a DJ (yes we’re using a laptop!). And our centerpieces will be origami flowers, lol.
Until we met with our photographer, Fiance kept saying we could just have a friend take pictures. But once he saw our photog’s portfolio he was more in love with her work than me 😉
mine was the opposite. he was like, well we’ve already spent so much, another $500 is not going to make a difference. so instead, I was the one who had to make sure spending did not get out of control so we wouldn’t go overboard.
Mine also thought photography was a waste of money. We got a quote of $500 from a great photographer. My Fiance decided to ask his photographer cousin instead and she quoted him $1400. Huge reality check for him!
What else……rehearsal dinner, engagement photos, gifts for the bridal party.
Videographer and my $275 bouquet.
he thought some of the smaller things were a big waste of money, like personalized water bottles and napkins. he generally thought a lot of things were un-necessary, but not necessarily a waste of money – if that makes sense. like i told him we were not getting a photographer because we can’t afford it, he would have had no problem!
My Fiance considers EVERYTHING to be a waste of money. The whole wedding, in general, is one big waste of money. The venue was a waste of money, the food is a waste of money, the candy buffet is a waste of money, it never ends!
I considered favors to be bad for the environment (too much packaging) and a waste of time to put together, but money wasn’t a factor. I just didn’t want to do it!
He frowns everytime I mention favors, we decided we don’t want a cake and he says chivari chairs are unconfortable and not woth the money.
We are also not getting wedding bands, it’ll of course save a lot of money but the main reason’s that he’ll never wear his’ and I don’t one one if he doesn’t have one too.
Anything that comes after the ring(s) and the wedding license. LOL. He doesn’t get all the pomp and cirumstance he just wants to be married (he’s fine with city hall) or something intimate with just the two of us. He thinks weddings overall are pretty much a waste of money. Ultimately, he’s leaving most of the plans up to me. I must say as more times passes, I’m starting to agree with him in many aspects.
@bklynbridetobe: My Fiance is the same exact way. If it were up to him we wouldn’t even be engaged because we would’ve gotten married at City Hall the day he proposed. Lol. I wonder what men consider to be their equivalent to a wedding….(I smell spinoff…lol).
Invitations (about $500) and my accesories (about $650)… i was suprised how much he thought everything else was very neessary and was happy to agree to costs 🙂
he totally said no to a backup photographer. i want one so we get a “second” angle of the wedding. i haven’t given up yet though. i will conquer.
HE is the one wanting to spend all this money, and I’m the one that is saying “No. It’s just one day.” LOL. It’s always funny to me. 🙂 He wants to “upgrade” just about everything. “We could do 4 tiers instead of 3.” “How about ______?” No.
He did get kind of floored when I told him how much my dress was, poor guy. But he got over it. 🙂 And he won’t even care once he sees how AMAZING it is. Lol.
