@melissa – that’s totally exactly how i feel about combined finances. i think this whole thing is just a symptom of the bigger problem, which is that we need to have a combined finances chat.
i hate money. rather, i hate not having lots and lots of money.

@Kitty – me too! haha. I want to live a guilt free life of leisure – what’s so wrong with that?!
PS: edited to add that at first, until I read it a few times, i thought you were referring to his GRANDMA (GM) or GENERAL MANAGER. heehee

Hey there- I didn’t have time to read all posts because about to leave for the day. But wanted to say that we just had this same argument back last month. His friend got married in Jackson Hole WY during the ski craze. It was going to cost us 2,000 to go to the wedding and that was with sharing a hotel room with another couple and a rental van with 4 other people! I just couldn’t see spending the money to go especially since we didn’t get an invitation to the wedding until 40 days prior to. My Fiance didn’t understand why I was so against going. For me it was the money but also I thought it was extremely impoliet to plan a Destination Wedding and only give your guests a few weeks to plan the trip or save up for the trip. I backed off from discussing it with him and waited for him to come to his own conclusion. As it turns out my Fiance and the other couple we would’ve split cost with couldn’t attend the wedding because they couldn’t get off of work. Something for your Fiance to consider. You’re going to have taken off a lot of work for your own wedding/mini-moon so you might not be able to do that.

UPDATE: FI’s groomsman has changed his mind about the Destination Wedding in the Keys and is now planning his wedding the weekend before our wedding in the same general area.
Starting new thread as this no longer applies to the Destination Wedding board.
