Why is it that the family expects you to pay to fly them out there?! I have never heard of this before. Usually if they can’t afford to fly they just can’t attend.

A few questions.  What would make you and your guy happy?  What do you need to feel you’re married?  Can you do an elopement for the two of you, then maybe a small gathering with each of the families?  It might be cheaper to fly the two of you around rather than half of one of your families.

My mans family is paying for their own airfares to our wedding.Those who can’t afford it won’t come. We allowed them about a year to save. Do whatever makes you and your man happy..We reduced our guest list to immediate family and close friends.

First off in reading i see ” My family put together a crazy guest list of 200 guests altogether. ” Honestly when it comes to YOUR wedding, you should be making the executive decions and should be doing most the planning unless you use a wedding planner. Why dont you feel what you plan is working out? you have too many people working around you, simply the problem.


Eliminate the extra people. Plan the wedding you want, get the wedding you want. Whoever can make it can make it. If it’s not in your budget to fly people out then THATS FINE!
