ok, point taken, but you may be surprised that there are couples who take the photography part of their wedding lightly. and even budget cut all the way.Originally Posted by Jed
Wedding car = friend's car
Driver = groom's friend
wedding cake = none
Sound system/PA system = use own from home.
MC for the day = friend
Wedding Dinner table = No table cloths to cut costs.
Wedding Dinner = catering, buffet style. free seating
Groom's Evening wear = only loan the jacket, trouser use own's
Studio Wedding Photos = taken in JB to cut costs.
Actual day wedding photographer (full day from 0600-2300) = Groom's ex-classmate and ex-classmate's friend (as backup), plus bride's friend with a Coolpix 3100.
The decor was minimised and simplified, to reduce "un-necessary" expenses.
So the usual notion, that wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime affair and should be grand....etc
Does not seems to be the case here.
Frankly, I was surprised at how he was so "easy going" with his wedding dinner.
