she plan her wedding after yours was already planned? If so then you have every right to delcline her offer due to finances.  If you planned yours after knowing hers was going to be in another country within 4 months of yours then it might be hard to get out of due to finances.  But if she planned hers after yours she needs to understand that weddings are expensive and international travel is equally expensive and not very easy to swing while trying to pay for a wedding.

Talk to her. Find out any information you can. If she is unable to give you an assistance let her know that you don’t think you’ll be able to attend. I had a semi-destination wedding. People started asking questions as soon as I knew it wouldn’t be in my hometown. We had a lot of people not come but we expected that. The only people that upset me were those in my family that didn’t tell ME they weren’t able to come. I had one aunt tell me from the beginning they wouldn’t be able to go, thats fine. Another uncle made it seem like he’d be there and then about a month before another aunt tells me he won’t be there because he’s going to Hawaii. WTH, you are a 58 year old man, step up and tell your neice you’re not going, don’t send you sister to do your dirty work. Just be honest.

Tell her your concerns and ask her for details of the wedding. Then, talk to your Fiance and go over the financial requirements of the trip to see whether it’s feasible. If being at the wedding is very important to your Fiance, see if you can make sacrifices to be able to go. Otherwise, just let her know that you can’t make it due to financial reasons, but you’d love to take them to dinner when they get back to celebrate their marriage. Chosing to have a Destination Wedding means accepting that some people can’t make it, so the couple should understand.
