I don't know what to do?? Big or small wedding?

When I say big I don't mean big as in guest list, we are only inviting 50 people to our wedding. We have already booked a hotel for the ceremony and reception. All in all I estimate that the wedding will cost around $6000 but now I don't know if we should spend that much. We bought a house last year and everything is done there is nothing else to buy. I know this is a one time thing because I'm marrying my soul mate but sometimes I feel we should just invite close family and friends and do something small and save our money. I kind of want to get married on our honeymoon, but I want my family to be there.

I'm so frustrated!!!!!!!!

  • You could have a destination wedding. I would go for the small, intimate wedding if I had to do it over again. I have not seen or spoken to many of the people that were at our wedding since the wedding day.
