There is one photographer that we are leaning towards. They offer a registry, something that's apparently a "new thing", ?? They have lil cards that can be placed in the shower invites so people know I registered with them. Part of me thinks its great then I think, is it tacky?? Joe seems to think it's great b/c we will have our pix forever and what a great gift, ya know? What do you think?

jac, being a bride, if i got your shower invite with a photog registry and a gift registry thing like for C&B too, i would totally do the photog registry because i know how important photos are for a wedding and that we cant always afford the photog we really want, so often we end up going with someone we like a little less just because its what we can afford. i say go for it!

I don't think it's tacky but I'm not exactly ms. etiquette. I think most people understand how expensive photos are and what a great gift to the bride and groom!

I might do it, but leave the info on your website & not do the inserts. I'd rather pitch in for a photographer than buy someone a set of tea cups. But, I do think that is a bride thing. If I recieved a registry to help cover the cost of catering I'd think WTF.

I dont know. I mean, if people can do honeymoon registries and that isn't tacky, then I wouldn't see how this is....

 

But what if you only got like $50 towards this photog? Then you are commited to them and they are out of your budget. What would you do then??

 

ETA: I see now that you never said they were out of your budget, so my comment might not apply, but I guess still something to think about...

Well they arent out of our budget, thats not why i'm interested in the registry. They just offer it so I thought why not utilize it.

My sister said "If you got that in an invite to a friends shower, what would you think about it?" i said "i wouldnt give a shit, its where they registered..." so she laughed and said well theres your answer. haha but of course im still un sure cause im a freak and "indecisive" is my middle name.

I think it's totally different than asking someone to chip in for the caterer. If I were to get a registry card for photography, I would assume that my gift would be a nice print for their wall. That I would help contribute to paying for nice things like photobooks, prints, etc. Not the services per say.

Rach - you summed it up perfectly. I wouldn't be offended at all for everything that she listed above.

 

I actually had someone write in a card that part of their gift to us is going to be to blow up a picture and have it framed for us. So it's kinda the same thing...

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
