Finally caught “My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding” on VH1. I was amazed.
Total bill $550,000
$17,000 for flowers.
Band and DJ. Monogram lighting. Ice Bar.
They started with an outdoor ceremony with 445 guests. The only microphone they had for the bride, the groom and the officiant was a corded microphone on a stand. Sure it is super reliable. But it is going to show up in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE of the ceremony.
Imagine for a moment… 50 years from now, showing pictures of your wedding day to the grandkids.
Just me, my love and my microphone.
The wedding planner should have caught it. The sound guy or DJ should have never let it happen. If you read it here, you heard it from me…
WARNING – It might have been the “standard ceremony package” the venue offered. There are several venues and DJs in town that offer something similar. If you don’t believe me, talk to a photographer or a videographer. This is one of the reasons I love attending and helping out with rehearsals. You can see the problems before the big day.
It should have been better. Take some time and think how the event is going to flow. Go to the location if you must. Talk to someone who has done it before.
