so.. i'm terribly new at this.


we just decided on a DW. i'm talking a week ago. needless to say, other than what i've learned from my minor addiction to wedding blogs and magazines, i know very little about this whole thing. we know this is what we want to do, but fiance and i had one major issue when deciding to go this route...




i'm sure there have been posts on this previously, but i searched and searched to no avail. my question is, how much can we expect our guests to pay? we are just inviting close friends and family (about 30 people total). are there certain things we are supposed to pay for (accommodations, flight, food)? i obviously don't want my guests to feel stressed about money with the current state of things, but my parents certainly cannot afford to pay for everything for everyone. how much is reasonable to ask people to pay? we definitely want everyone there, but we also don't want to break the bank. we're hoping to actually save money by going the DW route.


any advice, personal experience, guidance... anything... would be incredible.


thank you!!

I would start with locations. What locations are reasonable to fly to from your home. And then problably think about an AI. That will cover their flight, food and drinks. Also find a resort with a good wedding package. My parents paid for our trip there. FIL's are paying for the flowers. Anything else we are paying for. Our guest are paying $1200 each for 7 days. I hope this helps.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
