    Silly question, but I have to email my WC my head count. When I'm giving her the number for chairs at the ceremony, should I also add a chair for our photographer?

    I'm so clueless when it comes to this stuff!

      I would think they'd spend the time moving around taking pictures and not really sitting during the ceremony. At least, that's what I did when I shot weddings...

        hi jessica - im a photographer and the only time ive ever sat at a ceremony if it was a long church wedding and was told i couldnt move around by the priest. otherwise im on my feet the entire time. so my answer would be no :) hth.

          Well I have included my photographer and her husband in my count. I refer to dinner as there break and since it's an outdoor reception it's not like I have a seperate vendor room for dinner. My relationship with my photographer is that she is a guest anyway so maybe that has alot to do with my decision.

          Do you intend on serving a different dish to your vendors?

            ok guys, thanks! that helps. i figured she'd be moving around a lot, but didn't want to seem rude if it's the norm to have a chair!

            JPMO - our photographer is not coming to the reception (as far as I know, she is invited though!). but this is in reference to the ceremony only. i'm renting chairs for the beach wedding.

            actually the only vendor that is at the reception will be the WC!

              if were talking about receptions not ceremonies thats a little different. at destination wedding receptions i am usually seated with the guests. ive never asked to be - its just what my couples have done. i wouldnt be offended if i were seated somewhere else at all. DWs seem to be more intimate and i form a really close relationship with those couples. i always tell them - you darn well better make sure you like me cause were going to spending a lot of time together

                Aww. Yeah, I love my photog. She's sweet. I invited her and a guest to the reception, but I'm not sure if she's going to come. She'll be seated with guests if she does though. MY WC is being seated with the guests. I couldn't imagine sending vendors to another room... even if I was having a local wedding, I think I'd seat them with guests!

                  you know its funny, sometimes people seat me with the guests at even the fanciest most formal places. id say its about 50/50 at domestic weddings. glad you love your photographer! cant wait to seem some pics :)

                    Leigh - I was going to put you at the head table with Paul and I, right between us. I figured you could get some great shots that way! Think that will be weird?

                      i actually had a couple who was going to do that! not so i could be there to get great pics but just because they were worried about where we were going to sit! the coordinator found a place for us with the guests and that was ok with the couple. i mean you might be wanting to talk about your wedding night activities and i really dont need to hear THAT!!!
