What a tough situation honestly. One can assume and tell you want to do but family issues can be very touchy. But if you are doing them I would honestly ask for some sort of monetary compensation; it is a business after all. If they can't understand that then they're being very selfish.

Maybe set up a standard discount for friends and family. Present them the full price and then present the discounted price. Whatever you feel is worthy. But definitely don't get roped into the favor.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

My view of friends and family... If these are the people I would turn to when I need help moving, a ride, or anything where a good friend would gladly help w/o the need of a calculator to figure out compensation, I wouldn't charge to do this for them.... That's really just a small group, and for the most part, I would also explain that my coverage wouldn't be typical, as they're in that group where I want to really enjoy their big day as well...
