Wedding Costs vs. The Recession
Posted 03 November 2008 - 05:54 PM
We decided that we were going to Jamaica for the wedding, WE decided. We invited a small group of friends to join us there, and then we're having a reception when we get home to celebrate with everyone who couldn't make it to Jamaica. So we'll have a group of 20-30 (currently 22 confirmed) in Jamaica, and then a reception for 150-200 when we get back. For us, this seemed like a good balance

It's going to get worse before it gets better.

If anything, I'll cancel the at-home reception if money situation gets tough in the family. Otherwise - working on non-guilty planning!

I also think it would be far more expensive to have a wedding in my home town with 300+ people in attendance.
Could I be really selfish, probably but this is what we want and I think a special day like the day we get married should be exactly how we want it to be.
