By having a Destination Wedding, your sister has to be understanding that you either need help with that financially or you can’t go… that really sucks that you may have to miss your own sister’s wedding, but I mean what can you do? If she really has to have you there and will not help pay for your trip than she has to consider having a local wedding.

Ugh, what a tough situation. Maybe you and your other sister (the one with the baby) can sit down and tell the Destination Wedding sister that you both can’t make it for financial reasons. Maybe she will rethink the Destination Wedding when she realizes how her two sisters can’t attend.

No, you are not being stingy. Sounds like you’re the only one being responsible. It’s really great that your husband is going through school without debt, way to go. Don’t let your rude, overbearing family (a bitch for needing to save up, really?! Not acceptable.) cause you grief for sticking to a budgetyou and your husband agreed upon. It is none of their business, regardless of birthdays or weddings.

I went to a wedding recently where one of the guests was present via Skype on a laptop. Maybe this could be a last resort for you. (:

But talk to your sister sooner rather than later, so she has no reason to be “surprised” if you can’t attend her wedding.

Just tell your sister you can’t attend due to finances and encourage any family members in a similar situation to do the same. That puts the ball in her court. She can either plan the Destination Wedding and accept you not being there or plan an at-home wedding instead.

My H’s family lives in India and his sister announced her wedding with about 3 months notice. We’re broke, so we told her right away that we would not be able to make it. His sister (and the family) were disappointed, but understanding. Sometimes you just can’t make it, no matter how much you want to and family of all people should understand
