Digital technology changes so quickly. I received my wedding photos on a CD only five years ago, and now most computers don’t even come with disc drives! Prints will never be obsolete technology. 20 years from now, you’ll be able to sit down with your family and show them your wedding album. You can’t guarantee the same for digital files.
Get a grip on the approximate number of guests you will invite before settling on a venue. This will ensure theres ample space for your crew. As a rule of thumb, allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. That may seem like a lot, but its really not if you count the space you will need for the tables, bustling waiters, the band and a dance floor.
