When the shoe is on the other foot...

Back before we went down there, Mitch had been thinking of proposing to Franci, but the thought of a DW was foreign to them. After seeing how amazing and stress free our wedding was, they are seriously considering a DW, most likely in Cancun/Mayan Riviera.
Chris has said under no circumstances will we NOT be at this wedding. They actually went through a lot to come to ours (she was laid off 2 months before our wedding, and basically put the whole thing on their credit card). They have moved into his parents place to save money for their wedding, which will likely be next summer.
Here's the thing now. We are moving into our new house in 20 days. One of the whole reasons we are doing this is to get a cheaper house, pay off all our debts and actually start SAVING some money. I'm afraid 1. we wont have the money saved and there we go having to put the trip on a CC and rack up our debt again, or 2. just sending Chris because we can't afford for the both of us to go, and I know they will be really dissapointed because heck we are moving away from them
I know it's a long way off, they haven't even set a date yet, but I'm already stressing about it

Also, think about how much it meant to Chris and YOU to have them at your wedding and what that support meant - it is hard to put a price on it.
Personally, I think you should both be there unless of an emergency - just make that your vacation that year.
I think just sending him is a slap in the face.

I think as long as their resort is comparable to yours (and the amount to travel) you both need to be there. If they decide to go to Tahiti and it will be $5K per person, you might have more of an out.
