Weddings Cost Money For Everyone
Megan Reynolds

We(aka my parents) paid for the hotel rooms for our out of town family and friends, and provided breakfast(free with hotel) and dinner(rehearsal dinner & wedding dinner) while everyone was there, plus left goody bags of snacks and drinks in the rooms. Mom got a good rate on the hotel rooms because it’s the hotel she and my dad stayed at when they visited over the 10 years they were living in Australia, but that was still about a third of our wedding’s total $10,000 budget.

They all still had to pay for their own airfare and rental cars, but we wanted to minimize the financial hit as best we could(not going with a summer wedding helped a little with that, since there’s not a lot of demand for travel to Northeast Ohio in early December.)
