Am I being selfish

To me that's what it boils down to...do you want to/need to be uber-practical and save every extra penny for the wedding? Or do you want to/can you afford to have a little fun also and enjoy a break from "wedding land" and do something else for a week?
Both sides have valid points IMO. You'll just have to come to an agreement at some point. Good luck! ;-)

It's WAY less stressful to have all your money set early on before the wedding. We stressed forever trying to figure out how to save up all the money we needed too. We ended up having it all taken care of 3 months before the wedding and we were absoltely thrilled it was taken care of. So much less pressure and fighting!

You just need to sit down together and figure out if you can afford to go or if the money needs to go toward the wedding.
Could you possibly exchange the time share for a different location that might not be as expensive to get to?

I also agree in the need for a vacation if you can manage it.
That being said FI and I are also going to Cacnun at the end of Sept. Practially, we probably shouldn't and should save the $$ for the wedding. Mentally, we NEED the break. As much as we can't wait for the wedding, I don't know how relaxing it is going to be to spend 3-10 days with all of our closest friends and family. Fun? Yes! Relaxing? NO!!! So, we are going in Sept. to relax and and are going to try to tie in some wedding stuff (we're staying at the resort we're getting married in, so we want to meet with the onsite WC and stuff).
I'd say if you can swing it, go!

If he doesn't want to go and you personally can afford to purchase your ticket then I say you get some of your girls together and make it a girls trip.
