I read a story yesterday about a Texas couple who is delaying their wedding because of the price of gas. They can’t afford to commute to work, pay more at the grocery store, and have the wedding of their dreams. So, they’re holding off until things are better.
Are high gas prices affecting your wedding plans? Your budget? Transportation and catering are the obvious vendors that are directly impacted by increased fuel costs. Has the price of gas become a factor in other vendors’ fees? How are you coping with the increased price of, well, everything?
I’ve also been wondering about guests — when I got married, most of our guests came from out of town because neither my husband nor I are from Southern Maryland. Have you heard from out-of-town guests who can’t afford to make the trip to your celebration?
