My daughters land wedding cost $50,000, that's what happens when you send out invitations for a celebration. You don't ask your guest to pay for your party!!!To each his/her own, but I agree with you. Since we are now having our wedding after the ship leaves port, we are subsidizing the cost of the cruise for the majority of our guests. We feel it was important 1) to ensure their attendance and 2) because no one should have to pay excessive amounts of money to come to our wedding. The second we hatched this plan, we knew that we'd be paying for our guests and we are happy to. The upside is that it'll cost us half of what a "land" wedding in our area and we still get our intimate dream wedding.
