Is the cost of the wedding just the food, drink, venue, flowers, and tables??? What about all of the cost for each family member and friend to travel to your wedding?

Since we both are the-more-the-merrier type, we didn’t want to make the cuts. Weddings for my family are big family reunions.

For my fiancé, it’s one of the few times in his life of constant moving–he’s in the military–where all the people he loves come together.

So multiply a ginormous amount of guests by $300-500 each for airplane tickets AND who needs food and venue??? We just go to $100k just to get the people we love together?!?

That being said we decided to have our wedding close to his family and within driving distance of most of my family. Now we just need a venue to hold a ginormous amount of people in the winter…
