you get engaged, you spread the news, and then you start the fun, and sometimes daunting, task of planning your wedding day.
some family and friends could be absolutely fantastic at their trait and might be willing to give their service as a wedding gift. score!
others could just be starting out & while skilled, might not have the business side of things down. or you could run into an awkward money discussion.
then there are the few that might just be darn right bad, but they're your friend, so what do you do?!
we ended up booking our wedding vendors through recommendations, but none that were solely friends or family. we did have someone offer their photography skills, but as they didn't have any wedding experience, we thought it was too risky. we simply said that we would much rather they get to enjoy the wedding as guests then to have them "work" the event.
anybody out there have any awesome or awkward experiences with having your friends work your wedding? any other tips on how to let someone down nicely?
