I was reading today’s Berita Harian about the “excuses” given by a certain wedding planner that resulted in embarrassment, anger and downright unhappiness for all parties involved.
My heart goes out to the wedding couples who got burnt with this experience. Take comfort that a wedding is a 1 day experience and remember that you still have years of marriage ahead of you. Your life will go on regardless of the wedding fiasco. Who knows you can celebrate your 10th year anniversary in style – Insya-Allah!
Moving forward, what can we learn from this experience?
It seems that this particular wedding planner has done a lot of marketing through wedding shows at expo. However, it seems that it was just hype and over-promises with sweet words
Apparently, this wedding vendor has bad reputation since last year. With some background check and researching, this incident could have been avoided easily.
A very good writeup on this story can be found here: http://www.kahwin-khronicles.com/2013/09/pengantins-beware.html
Future grooms and brides – please take note that you need to be aware of who you are paying your hard-earned dollars to.
That being said, please be wary when the prices quoted are too low. Be honest to yourself – what type of quality will you get when you pay cheap prices?
Interesting forum post here:
I have to be honest – this is my ricebowl. How I feed myself and my family.
I get paid because I know how to use a camera and capture memories. Not pictures mind you.
But literally I capture the love, the stories behind the smiles and package it in such a way that your wedding moments will be remembered and cherished for a long, long time to come.
I am a professional wedding photographer and I learnt my skills in these 2 ways – through formalized photography training (I invest in myself) & capturing actual weddings.
Hope you understand why my my photography services start at a certain price point. We are not the cheapest in the marketplace because we have the skills, knowledge and happy testimonials as proof.
If you take the risk with cheap wedding photography, just be prepared that it might not be up to your expectations.
With our past wedding couples’ testimonials, I am certain our wedding photography packages provides you that peace of mind that your wedding moments will turn out great.
That is the only solid reassurance you need that your wedding photography are an investment that provides returns for many many years to come!
