Started to plan the wedding the other day, but of course right now we are just roughing out what it will cost and trying to figure out exactly what it is going to cost us. There is a great deal of things that you have to pay for. There are the small things, which add up quickly and then there are the really big things. A wedding photographer is the sort of thing you have to have. It is not something you need to scrimp on, you need to find a person who is capable of doing the work the way you expect it to be done. That is fairly obvious. You can not get your half witted cousin Vernon and his half drunk buddy Earl to take photos with their cell phones. Of course you are going to get plenty of those at any rate and some people can do a fair job of taking pictures with their phones. You need a video too, probably one that is of high quality. At least it seems as though you would want to have it done well.
The big deal is the stuff like the venue and the catering. If you have a small number of guests you can save on that, but it looks as though we are not going to be able to keep the guest list to a reasonable number. You obviously have to put a halt to it some place, but we have to avoid hurting the feelings of a lot of people. There are all sorts of aunts and uncles and cousins and tons of friends. All of them get a plate of food to eat and every plate is going to cost you. It is probably going to be around forty dollars a head, for around a hundred and forty people.
