So you’ve received an invitation to a destination wedding. I mean a very large bill. I mean, um, an invitation to a destination wedding. They’re the same thing, really. You’re probably in a bit of shock. You’re probably wondering why this couple would do this to you. You may even need to put it down and walk away for a while because you just can’t think about spending that kind of money right now. Destination weddings, once guests are at them, are so much fun. But it can take a lot of mental and financial fortitude to get them there in the first place. Most people don’t get around to spending the money and taking the time off work to travel for their own personal vacations—let alone for someone else’s big day. Here’s what it’s like when your guests receive your destination wedding invitation.
They shut the invitation really quickly and toss it to the side, as if, if they haven’t seen it, then it doesn’t exist—it isn’t happening. They’ll leave the invitation on the corner of their desk or on top of the fridge for several days because their brain is not yet ready to process the unexpected $800 to $1200 expense that just came their way.
