    The Darling Husband & I had a small Destination Wedding wedding in Aruba to save money and it was a blast!!  If your looking to buy a house I suggest saving some of the money for your down payment.

    Honestly, for me it would depend on how much they’re offering.

    I’m 29 and have been working for 7 years, doing well enough.

    $10-20k extra in the bank won’t change my life – I’d take the wedding.  We have been saving for a down payment for years and will be able to get in a house in the next year regardless.

    A six figure budget might be another story.

    My dad asked us the same question (money and elope or wedding) and we chose wedding. We realized we want our friends and family to be part of it. It it were an option I would go with a smaller party  and put the rest towards the house (or student loans in our case).
