    Soooo, to update the few girls who had asked I post what I decided on doing....:-)

    I e-mailed the photog's assistant (who has been my regular point of contact), and told her I hadn't arranged for meals, and exlplained the difficulty with numbers at our resort, but also said if they'd like to stay I would definitely work something out...

    She e-mailed back to say that my photog NEVER eats at the weddings he shoots! She said he's too busy working...which I guess is good:-)
    I messaged her back to say they'd be done work by the time dinner started, so if they changed their minds to let me know...but I didn't hear back.

    Sooo, I guess a big tip and no dinner is the final decision!:-)

    Thanks to everyone for their input...all this etiquette stuff is stressing me out!

      Well they made that decision easy for you. At least you can say you asked.

        You are being really sweet to even think about offering dinner to your photographer! If your photographer is only working 3 hours and leaving before dinner, it is not rude at all. Most photographers here in Hawaii expect to be fed after 5 hours of photography!

          Good question.... for me, if I was done before dinner starts I would just want to go home.

          but just to make sure, I would just ask your photog if he is cool with you not serving him dinner.
