is it horrible etiquette to pay for only some guests to go on a tour?

Recommended Posts

 

My family and my bridesmaids are coming from England and paying loads of money to do so. My fiances Mexican friends are paying about 100-150 dollars for the flight

 

I wanted to take my family, fiances family and bridal party (2 bridesmaids) on a tour (they're all desperate to see chichen itza and its a special thankyou for people who trekked across the world). There's no possible way i can afford to pay for all 100 guests to go.

 

Part of me thinks its horribly rude...but, mexican guests will probably fly for a long weekend - thursday to monday - whereas english guests will be there 7-9 days. If i do it before mexican guests get there....then thats ok? Or is the etiquette that if all guests don't go then no guests should go for free?

I don't know the etiquette on this but what they don't know won't hurt them, right?  Its not like you are excluding people to be mean.  I get your reasoning and that you would love to do it for everyone but that will be very expensive.  I say do it either before or after the long weekend when your guests from England are there but the others aren't (assuming the others aren't staying as long).  GL!

Ok i feel better about it then! providing i dont do it while the other guests are there i think its fine! thanks for reassuring me =)

 

Of course ideally id take everyone...but 100 people would be about 10,000 dollars!

I think if you can do it when others aren't around it is not an issue at all. And I think those that are spending so much coming to your wedding would really appreciate it.

I agree with the other ladies-do it while your Mexican guests aren't there. And keep it on the down low- they don't need to know you payed for all of the other guests to go.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
