Wedding Discussion...a play in one act.

Act One.
Scene One.
Opens on a kitchen. Woman with glass of red wine in hand leaning against door frame looking perplexed and frustrated. Man with glass of beer leaning against counter. Looking clueless.

Woman: So I talked to the photographer I told you about and she can totally come up with a price that relates to our event.

Man:I'm not paying more for the photographer than for everything else. She only needs to take photos of the ceremony.

Woman(choking on wine.): It's our wedding! We need photos!!!

Man:I know but negotiate. I say we pay no more than 700 dollars. It only makes sense.

Woman(gulping back wine and reaching for more.):How does that make sense?!?!

Man:Well if Saturday costs 1500 dollars for 6 hours then Friday should be less than half that.

Woman:I am not skimping out on the photos when I am skimping out on everything else!

Man:You won't even negotiate!

Woman(Wishing she had more red wine, perhaps an I.V full of it.) The only thing that matters to me more than the whole married bit is the documentation of it.

Let's just say that one of us has artistic vision. The other freely makes fun of artists.

I totally agree - pictures pictures and more pictures!! They were my number one priority when picking vendors.

I'm with you on this. I have put the boy in charge or researching photographers so he can see what we're up against. That being said, we've actually found some pretty good deals on Craigslist. I've agreed to check them out with the understanding that if I don't like their work, he'll keep looking.
