Is it mandatory to pay for wedding guest accommodation and flight tickets?
I half chinese/filipino PR 24F, and my Indonesian chinese singaporean fiance 27M are deciding whether to get married in SG or Philippines as we have about 200 pax guest to cover.
In SG for that amount of guests, wedding costs would go up to 50k or more.
50-60 out of the 200 guest are from my fiance side + friends and the rest (150+) resides in php. Which means having a wedding in php would be more convenient.
But I’ve heard from some of my friends that if we were to invite them to an overseas wedding, we should be responsible for their flight as well as accommodation costs too.
And a rountrip ticket to php would be about $300 each. So overall $15k+ for 50pax which is almost the wedding cost at php???? Is there an option to buy in bulk and how much cheaper would it be?
Also is it a must to pay for their tickets as well as accommodations?
Or does anyone know how we can do a 20k wedding in sg for about 100pax at least?
Here are what netizens think:
You are not responsible for their tickets and accommodation.
Important things say twice:
Invite whoever you want.
The consequences as follow;
1. Those who truly wants to see you get married, and able to afford it, will commit to go. Thank and show appreciation to them. That’s it. You don’t owe them anything.
2. Those who wants to go, can’t afford. You need to assure them it’s fine, you appreciate their thoughts, and tell them no pressure at all! Thank them.
3. Those who don’t want to go. Thank them either way.
4. And the last group who will tell you: you need to pay for my air tix and accommodation.
RUN FROM THESE “friends”. Never invite them for anything ever again.
They are entitled.
