Follow the Bride: Episode 21

It's coming down to the wire. We have less than a month until we're married at city hall and less than two months until we have our reception. With our degrees and diplomas wrapping up it's getting hectic around here. There's no time for wedding planning so we really have to find ways to work it in there.

For example,

I finally told my photographer our wedding has changed and the ceremony isn't on the original date anymore.

He cancelled.

I mean, at first I was upset. I felt I had done something wrong. Then I got angry because I thought it was due to the non-traditional aspects of everything and I really felt I did nothing wrong. Now I'm ambivalent. More and more I just want our wedding to be fun. I want to feel comfortable and loved. I want to drink wine without worrying about how much longer the photographer is around (he's pretty much our only on-site vendor), making sure he's got what he needs.

Besides, I totally understand where he is coming from. We had an agreement and he's not really getting his end of the deal. These things happen. Luckily we've only paid him for our engagement photos so that's worked out from our perspective. And now we have more money to work with in our budget.

In the end, as much as I love professional wedding photography, I know I'll love the photos all of my friends and family will take just as much, maybe even more.
