frywedding2015:  The little things can add up! Is it possible for the two of you to take on extra work? Particularly over the holidays, there are part time jobs in retail. You could put those earnings directly into a wedding fund.

frywedding2015:  I’m not clear on the logistics — are you getting married near where you live, and your friends and family will need accommodations because that’s far away from where most of them live?

frywedding2015:  Have you looked into flip-flopping, and having the wedding where your friends and family live so you only need accommodations for 2 and can spend the rest of your budget on the fun stuff?

It sounds like you already paid the deposit on the rental house, and it does sound like a good deal. But you don’t have to pay for everyone to stay. I’m doing my whole shindig at a mansion, and on Friday night I’m having a girls night for my bridal party. They are paying for their own rooms that night. It will also be after the rehearsal dinner, so I plan on bringing some wine and snacks for everyone. If we need to order pizza, I will do that, but I’m hoping everyone will be full. When people have to travel for a wedding, they do plan on paying for their own hotel rooms. You could tell the people that are coming that it is “X” amount for the night to stay. I know renting a house is different, and at least for me, the mansion is a B&B that rents each room out seperately, so it’s easy for me to tell the girls what the cost is. Maybe chat with the owner of the vacation house and see if there is a way they would accept payment from the guests and take it off your bill. I might get flack from other bees saying this is unacceptable, but what is the difference if you didn’t have a place for everyone to stay? They would be paying $150ish for a hotel room.
