She's full of it and just trying to make you feel bad and justify her own ridiculous request to herself. Let her go. She has a pocket-full of red flags.

Absolutely. I've only really had 3 nightmare clients over the past 5 years. ALL were totally cost focused before the wedding.

Re: Breaking up your shooting time

But they'll spend upwards of $2000 for a stretch Hummer limo (at least around here) for a maybe 45 minute ride. I can hear the conversation 2 to 5 years from the wedding, "Boy, do you remember the limo ride we had? It was awesome wasn't it" (too bad we can't remember any of the details of the wedding like a well produced video would have done)
Gotta wonder about some peoples priority's

Just sayin'
