Question, is it just the two of you or a family affair?

We bought a home in May 2008, so we'd much rather put more money into our home than a wedding. We both work for financial institutions so we really need to be prudent in these times!

We have decided that we are inviting family and close friends - a total of 60 guests or so. We have little hope that everyone can make it, but I have promised myself not to feel guilty or sad about those who wont be able to celebrate with us. We are renting out a park pavilion for a night about 1 month afterward to celebrate with all of those who weren't able to make it. It's a cheap way to host a celebration and still include everyone closest to you.
Good luck in making your decision!!

So if you do choose having family, all you would really have to worry about would be your travel and wedding pkg costs. Stick with the most minimal wedding pkg bc why not? Your already paying for all your food and drinks, why pay more for some pkg deal? You can still have fun and not be so formal with a reception dinner in a ballroom or on the beach. Have dinner with everyone at one of the resort restuarants. That is at no extra cost. You dont have to pay for anyone's trip or excursions, or do any extras. Its your wedding and no one is going to be upset bc you didnt have decorations or centre peices, or OOT bags or whatever....if family is important - have them there. If your are as important to them as they are to you, then they wont care about all that extra "stuff", they will just be happy to be a part of your special day.

Because we're tight on money, also, i would definitely tell you that you should sign up for a honeymoon registry! We used honeymoonwishes.com, and that way it will help contribute to everything, so if you do decide to invite family, hopefully that might help some.
You just have to do what you feel is best, not necessarily for financial reasons, but what you REALLY want! It is, after all, your big day! I hope you decide what's best, and best of luck!
