It sounds like you need to sit down and have a good discussion about finances.  It might just be that it’s not something he feels like is good value, or he may have some financial issues you’re unaware of.

@bridegirl007:  “why is this one time expense for a trip we both really need so hard for him to get excited about?”

Don’t ask us, ask him.  Could be any number of reasons, but we can only speculate.

I would definitely ask him! That’s pretty bizarre. Does he want to stay someplace cheaper?

You could ask, “I noticed you seemed to freak out about a tentative trip.  Tell me why that made you so anxious?” 

He is probably not looking at it as a “we need this trip together” but more like “oh shit, weddings are expensive!”  That is my arm chair guess.

Then hopefully you can open up a discussion about money, how to pay for a wedding, what you each could bring to the table, and MORE IMPORTANTLY – how you two are going to handle your finances after you’re married!  Have that talk now.  Try not to get caught in details like stress over one trip – you need to really hash out/come up with an arrangment for future money.
