@shadowblind:  I think it might be dicey to expect other people to pay for things at your wedding.  There are so many things that could occur, and so many postings here about things like this and then having people back out with promises with money.  Perhaps she has good intentions, but things change. What if someone loses their job, or you have a falling out.  Best to plan what you can afford.

I know its a foreign concept this day and age with every man for themselves, but amazing things and good people do exist!

I think its best to take things one step & day at a time and really talk to this couple to see how serious they are, and how things would go down should they be on board.

Stay positive and don’t be afraid to be happy! Also, talk to your counselor about it all!

Keep us updated 🙂

@creativeplannertobee:  that’s not really paying for things at her wedding but paying for the rooms they’re staying in….there IS a difference

I would have to find out how other guests feel about this set up before I made plans—I mean everyone is going to have to stay SOMEWHERE anyway–why not at the B&B where the wedding is taking place?

Maybe you can reserve the whole place up to a certain time before your wedding and those who want to stay there can call and book their own room? Like when people have a block of rooms set aside at a hotel for guests to book. That way you’re not out the money and hopefully you will have the whole place to yourself.

I am also having a Destination Wedding…but their bookings whether flight, hotel, whatever are completely up to them. I will give them names of places and they will be able to use our wedding discount but the booking/paying will be completely up to them. That is part of the expense of attending any Out of Town wedding, be it Destination Wedding or just not your hometown. If people can and want to be there they will.

@shadowblind:  I am having a Destination Wedding in thailand and my guests will be paying for their own flights & accom. I am negoiating a room discount and will be paying for a welcome party, cocktail hour, reception and day trip after the wedding.  I presumed all my guests knew they would be paying for their own accomodaiton but once a Girlfriend said something about dont worry I can organise my own accomodaiton if I cant let you know straight away if I am coming so I was a bit confused about that.  I have been to DWs before and paid for flights, accom & all food except for reception dinner and after lunch.
