    No Problem. I agree with you totally I am having a hard time asking for anything of even feeling like I want a shower. But I remind myself that people will probably give you things anyway...so you really should get what you want or in your case NEED!!! I know it will work out :)

      Since your wedding is almost a year away there's also a good likelihood (hopefully) that you and your FI will get new jobs and you'll in the end be able to choose (and pay for) the photographer you want...Realistically I'm sure there are a TON of gals who don't book their photog that far out under normal circumstances - I sure didn't. I'd say you have several more months to see if you can right the ship before you have to worry about Plan B.

        I think it's a great idea -- I would much rather get a gift that you would actually USE instead of a toaster oven that sat in a closet, unopened. And your friends probably know your situation right now. I think it is a great idea -- keep us posted!

          Your guests have the opportunity to contribute to something that not only you, but your family in the years to come will appreciate and treasure (not like a kitchen clock). If I was a guest I would be honoured to help out in this way.

          I say go for it. I would talk to photographers regarding payment options (ours has a paypal account) so you can choose who you want. If you do manage to fall on your feet in the meantime - you can use the spare money creating a great start to married life

            I think it's a great idea. If someone offered to chip in for wedding photos I think that'd be the greatest gift of all.... far better than a toaster :)
            I like the wording mentioned above..."if you'd like to help our day be picture perfect, visit www.fghjk.com for more info on our wedding photography registry" or something like that.
