This Is the One Part of Wedding Planning Where You Should Totally Be a Bridezilla

You've prided yourself on being level-headed throughout the entire wedding-planning process. You were cool as a cucumber when your caterer suggested nixing your raw bar idea. Hell, you even let your bridesmaids pick out their own dresses. 

But there's one aspect of planning where you really should refuse to compromise: Making a game plan with your photographer. 

Telling your photog to just wing it seems super chill and nice of you…until you get your photos back and they’re all shot like stills from a Tarantino movie.

Try to be as specific as possible when making a shot list with your photographer. Look through his or her website and be really honest about what you want and don’t want. In the moment you might feel bossy or needy, but trust us, it’ll be worth it 30 years from now.

While we're on the subject, you also might want to reconsider not hiring a videographer. It’s no big surprise that couples have some budget regrets, but what is surprising is what many say they regret not spending more on. According to Zola’s Wedding Planning Survey, one-third of recently married folks wish they shelled out more on a videographer. 

Food photos for thought.
