The Friday Fight-Outs: All of them

FRIDAY_FIGHT_OUT NewOn Tuesday we decided to celebrate Bride Vs Groom’s second birthday by sharing all of our Photographer’s Thoughts  posts in one big happy place for you to find all of the photography advice you need quickly and easily. There is one feature however that has been running since the very first week of Bride Vs Groom and that’s our great big weekly wedding debate: The Friday Fight-Out.

So today we present The Friday Fight-Outs… all of them. One great big expanse of hotly debated issues on all things weddings from the biggest decisions like whether to get married in church or not down to the finer details (and once or twice the slightly surreal!) So if you’re currently having a Bride Vs Groom debate and can’t decide which way to go, chances are you can find the most compelling arguments here!

We’re always on the lookout for new hot topics to debate though so if there’s something you can’t find here and would like to see your points argued then please leave a comment or get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
