Americans spent $74 billion just to say “I Do” last year.
A story on ABC's Nightline focused on a couple that budgeted a “mere” $75,000.00 for their wedding.
So what could possibly add up to that kind of figure? For starters, they spent over $9000.00 for French tips and pedicures for the bride, mom and sister compared to $3800 for professional photography! That's an interesting difference of priorities. The couple feels their wedding photos – which they will have for a lifetime – are less important than finger and toenails – something that will grow out in a couple weeks.
As a wedding photographer for nearly 30 years, I've witnessed couples who chose their photographer based mainly on price – only to be disappointed with their photographs later. Suddenly, the price becomes inconsequential and the lost wedding memories the priority. Unfortunately, there is no going back to re-photograph the wedding day.
