Re: Editing of Speeches/Dances/In Betweens

Come on Dave ..I'm sure you could have done it for 200 pounds and also thrown in a photographer and given them a bunch of DVD's, Blurays and at least a 200 page photo album ....and for that price I'm sure your 4 man team would have stayed right to the end too!!

I'm as speechless as Pete .... surely people do a bit of research and even if the other quotes actually were real do prospective brides really expect a professional service at that rate??

I do get a few Muslim brides who ask for crazy prices but naturally I'm already booked on the day but I have never had normal people even think about asking me to do a wedding at prices that approach that pricing ... Even the DIY video people would charge more than that I'm sure (the ones that give the bride a camera and then edit the results...we also have them over here)

I think if I was asked to do a wedding at a ridiculous price I would suggest they get a relative to do it .. I would much rather sit in front of the telly that afternoon.

That bothers me not just because its cheap, but because she is also stipulating what she needs you to do, not asking what you can offer to fit her budget. That said, that's egregiously low. People who want stuff cheap often complain the most.
