Ok so FI wants to get this big beach house in Emerald Isle, NC (fit for weddings) and remind you we are a budget tight couple. He on the other hand likes to spend, me I save a $5 bill my grandma gave me out of a birthday card for a year before i spend it. To pay for the crazy expensive but oh so nice Wedding beach house oh! that holds up to 30+ people…he wants to CHARGE PEOPLE! I mean if we had the money we could pay but this isn’t PLATINUM WEDDINGS PEOPLE! So were back to square one. thoughts?

I think it depends on who’s staying are these close friends who understand the situation you’re in and can give you a full commitement to it? After all if you had a DW wouldn’t they pay to stay someplace anyway? It might be the more cost effective route for all involved. However, what happens if several people have to or just do drop out in the last minute? Who’s responsible for that, what kind of problems would that create for everyone involved, lots to think about.

I agree…he wants to open this house up to any and everyone that wants too. I don’t want to stay with all these people. PLUS your right they may drop out then i have to worry about collecting monies for the “rent” its too much work. It could be a mess.

I agree it could be a mess. Also, do you really want to be staying in the same house with all these people right after the wedding? They might not leave you alone so you can spend time with your new husband.
