I am always very amazed by how a package that is worth S$3,300 can shoot up to S$8,000 or even more!!!
This is when there is no communication and common understanding between the bride and groom.
It all started when my friend stepped into the bridal studio with her finance…
It was the day that they were going to choose their wedding photos for their wedding album.
Normally, though the album can only contain 26 pictures with only 26 poses, the photographer is smart enough to have taken at least 200 photos or much much more…
Here comes the reason…when the couple sat down and their coordinator “assisted” them in choosing the photos, the coordinator would identify who the decision maker was.
Let’s say the fiancee was the one and she could choose any photo that she loved and the fiance had absolutely no say…the coordinator would focus on the fiancee and “complimenting and praising” any photo that she picked up…every photo of her in her wedding dress looked fabulous!!!
This was to encourage her to want the photo to be part of the album.
Mind you….every addition photo add up another $80 to $100 more to the bill….of course, the coordinator would want his customers to buy more. From the final amount, he will get a certain percentage off from the total payment as commission.
Normally, couples won’t have discussed what their ceiling budget was and what their expectations were.
Sometimes, the fiance may be too reserved to tell her wife-to-be to stop choosing or to cut down her choices…Sometimes, he wanted to save his “face” and to show that he could afford them.
Ah ha!!! This is the weakest link that the coordinator would make full use of…
In the end, my friend chose almost all the photos that the coordinator said were “good” and she topped up with another 6000 dollars!!!
In the end, is my friend happier?
Nope, right after they left the studio, she and her fiance had a quarrel over why she chose so many photos.
The only happy person is the coordinator of the bridal studio.
