Weddings

Wedding invitations are one of the biggest bills you can get in the mail. If it’s a destination wedding, the bill just quadrupled. A destination wedding doesn’t just mean you have to get to a place via an expensive plane ticket, but it also means you need to pay for accommodations while you are there, and you must take days off of work – days for which you may not be paid. While you’re at the destination, you need to find ways to feed yourself for every meal that’s not at the wedding, and eating away from your own kitchen isn’t cheap. So when you get an invitation to a destination wedding, you just got a bill for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000. Yaaaaay! And let’s not forget the expensive wedding gifts.
